Botulinum toxin is a type of purified protein and is an effective and safe treatment that has been used for decades. The active ingredient used in most anti-wrinkle injections is Botulinum Toxin Type A. The most well-known injection of this sort is Botox®.
Botulinum toxin (Botox®) has been used medically for more than 20 years to reduce wrinkles. Botulinum toxin blocks the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract. A tiny amount is injected directly into facial muscles, making them less active. This results in the elimination of frown lines, forehead lines, crow’s feet and lines around the mouth. A similar principle also applies to give a brow lift or treat bunny lines, dimpled chin, a gummy smile or a downturned smile.
It is a virtually painless procedure, and the full effect can be seen after 2 weeks. Anti-wrinkle treatment or Botox® treatment tends to last between 3-6 months, with the effect gradually wearing off. This straightforward procedure can even be done in your lunch hour, and treatment will leave your face looking natural and more relaxed.
The use of botulinum toxin injections has become common for the smoothing of skin wrinkles and is especially effective around the eyes and between the eyebrows.
