Botox injections usually start working one to three days after treatment. Depending on the problem being treated, the effect may last three to six months. To maintain the effect, regular follow-up injections are recommended.
Getting a Botox Injection takes only a few minutes and doesn’t require anesthesia. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. You can resume daily activities almost immediately.
Noticeable results can be expected within 1-2 days post-treatment. The full effect of a Botox Injection typically lasts up to four months, depending on the individual case.
Botulinum Toxin (Botox) injections are best known for reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. Additionally, they are also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, and lazy eyes. Botox injections can also help prevent chronic migraines.
The injection of Botulinum Toxin blocks certain chemical nerve signals, especially those that trigger muscle contraction. However, the most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes in order to prevent them and help restore the patient’s youthful appearance.
