Neurotoxins such as botox is a drug made from a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can't contract. It paralyses the muscle by approx 80% preventing that muscle from contracting which makes wrinkles relax and soften. Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. Botox won’t help with wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity but it can soften them over time. Getting Botox takes only a few minutes.The provider uses a small needle to inject Botox into specific muscles with only minor discomfort.It generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect. The effects from Botox will last 3 to 6 months. As muscle action slowly returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking. Because Botox and fillers are different substances designed for different uses, they can sometimes be combined in one treatment. For instance, someone may use Botox to correct lines between the eyes and a filler to correct smile lines around the mouth.
