WHAT ARE NEUROTOXINS?
Neurotoxins, or muscle relaxants such as Botox® and Dysport® are used strategically to relax certain muscles that convey a negative connotation, and to ‘wake up’ other muscles that convey a positive expression.
Botox® is the number one aesthetic procedure in Los Angeles and even the world. Patients decide to get a muscle relaxant such as Botox® or Dysport® for a number of reasons. The results appear gradually and disappear gradually, making the results subtle, yet wildly effective.
HOW LONG DO NEUROTOXINS LAST?
Every patient is different depending on his or her metabolism of neurotoxins (Botox®). Most patients find their Botox injections last around 3-4 months. Some patients metabolize Botox faster than others, leaving them with Botox’s effects for 2-3 months, while others have the amazing benefit for up to 6 months. Over time Botox can fatigue the muscle allowing for less movement after the Botox wears off, allowing more time between injections.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR NEUROTOXINS TO START WORKING?
It takes about 7-14 days to see the best results from Botox.
WILL THERE BE ANY DOWNTIME AFTER NEUROTOXIN INJECTIONS?
Post-injection, you should expect a little bit of swelling and slight redness, which usually goes away in a matter of hours. Avoiding heavy exercise, salty foods, and alcohol will help to avoid excessive swelling.
WILL I NEED TO CONTINUE NEUROTOXIN INJECTIONS FOREVER?
Most patients love the way they look after Neurotoxin injections, but it is not necessary to continue the treatment forever if you wish to stop.
