Botox is a neuromodulator comprised of Botulinum-Toxin Type A. It works by blocking communication between neurotransmitters and the muscles that were injected, temporarily relaxing the muscles and preventing the contraction of that muscle. This in turns creates a softer look as well as prevents pain associated with migraines and decreases excessive sweating. Botox is a quick 10-15-minute treatment with minimal downtime. The results of Botox can last anywhere from 3-9 months depending on the area injected. You may notice subtle results at 48-72 hours, with noticeable results at 2 weeks.
