Cosmetic Botulinum Toxin injection Results

Botox Cosmetic is a drug that health professionals have used for years to treat wrinkles and facial lines, mainly in the upper face. Moreover, the Botulinum toxin can be used for neck rejuvenation. Botox is a brand name for a neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. There are other brands, such as Dysport, Xeomin, and Nuceiva. Since it was the first injectable botulinum toxin, Botox is the most commonly used name.

How does Botox work

Botox works by blocking nerve impulses from reaching the muscles. The muscle that has been injected is unable to contract. Wrinkles relax and soften as a result of this.

Dr. Alhallak recommended Radiesse correct the nasolabial fold after the consultation. The patient had received Juvederm for over 5 years and was looking for a long-term solution to avoid a yearly trip to the Edmonton centre.

How long does Botox last?

Botox’s effects will last 3 to 6 months. When muscle function gradually returns, lines and wrinkles reappear and must be handled once more. Since the muscles shorten over time, the lines and wrinkles also look less serious.

What are Botox’s side effects?

Following a Botox injection, you can experience some temporary side effects. This may involve the following: bruising and headache. The wrong injection site might cause droopy eyelids.
