What are neuromodulators?
Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin or neuromodulator. These substances target the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signaling processes that stimulate muscle contraction.
What can I expect with Botulinum Toxins?
You will meet with a licensed healthcare provider who will assess your skin and discuss your goals for the treatment. They may also ask about your medical history and any medications you’re taking.
Pre-treatment: Before the treatment, your provider may apply a numbing cream or ice to the treatment area to reduce discomfort.
Injection: The Botox injection process typically takes only a few minutes. Your provider will use a fine needle to inject the Botox into specific muscles in your face.
Results: It typically takes 3-7 days for the full effects of Botox to be noticeable, and the results can last up to 3-6 months.
There are several brands of Botulinum Toxins on the marketing, including:
• Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Patients see a visible improvement in 10-14 days
