Botox (Botulinum Toxin A) injection is a simple and very effective treatment for the temporary improvement of the appearance of frown lines, reducing wrinkles through the transitory and reversible paralysis of overactive muscles.
It is also used to treat excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) under the arms, feet or hands.
It can take between 10 to 14 days for the full effect of Botox injections to become evident.
For that reason, a follow-up appointment can be made two weeks after the initial injections to assess the final result and determined whether more units are required.
Effects last between 3 to 4 months, but can be affected by factors such as the body’s circulation, certain medications as well as the immune system.
