Botox® and Dermal Fillers
Cosmetic Botox® is a type A botulinum toxin whose role is to temporarily block the release of acetylcholine. The muscle is then relaxed and the wrinkle is reduced. The effect is not permanent and re-treatment will be needed usually in about 3 months.
The results of treatment are seen within 14 days of injection, a maximum effect may be seen 5-6 weeks after injection.
