A simple, nonsurgical procedure that
smooths the deep lines that develop over time.
In cosmetic applications, botulinum toxin is considered safe and effective for reduction of facial wrinkles, especially in the upper most third of the face. Injection of botulinum toxin into the muscles under facial wrinkles causes relaxation of those muscles, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin. Smoothing of wrinkles is usually visible three days after treatment and is maximally visible two weeks following injection.
The treated muscles gradually regain function and generally return to their former appearance three to four months after treatment. Muscles can be treated repeatedly to maintain the smoothed appearance.
Botulinum toxin is also used to treat disorders of hyperactive nerves including excessive sweating.
