Botulinum toxin injection is an effective way to lessen the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It has also been used to treat excessive sweating on the armpits, hands, and feet as well as a treatment for migraine.
Botulinum toxin injection primarily freezes the muscles thereby softening the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The procedure will usually take only about 15 minutes. The effect can be visible after 2 to 3 days, but maximum benefit typically occurs 7 to 10 days after injection. The usual effect will last from 3 to 6 months.
There are a few aftercare instructions needed to be followed after botulinum toxin injections. One is to avoid massaging or touching the treated area for at least 4 to 6 hours after the injection. Secondly, avoid working out or do any strenuous activities for at least 24 hours. Last is to not lie down facing downward for at last 4 to 6 hours.
