Botox, Dysport or Xeomin are fast becoming the most popular cosmetic “office procedure” done in America today. These substances are purified proteins that are injected in specific areas in the face, generally about the forehead and eyes, to decrease or even eliminate facial wrinkling and lines on a temporary basis. There usually is no “down time” from these procedures although occasionally there can be black and blue which can last for several days. Results usually take effect within 2 to 6 days and last up to 4 to 6 months.
Botulinum toxins won’t fix all types of skin problems. For example, while it can diminish under-eye wrinkles, it can’t repair the damage caused by the sun. Your skin thickness, type, and the degree of wrinkling all play a role in determining the effectiveness of botulinum toxin.
