Botulinum Toxin

It works by blocking the nerve impulses to the injected muscles which reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form. Within 5 days, there will be a marked improvement in the injected area.  Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 3 to 4 months. Individual results may vary. Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the physician’s office without downtime.

It is used to treat fine lines, muscle spasm, excessive sweating, migraine, cluster headaches, tension headaches, flaring of the nostrils and other medical conditions.

Side effects associated with the injection include localized discomfort, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising.
