Description- These injectables temporarily block nerve receptors on your muscles, which soften the look of lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive movements such as smiling, frowning and squinting. They can also be used to prevent lines and wrinkles from forming, extending your youthful look for longer. Botox has a wide variety of other uses in the medical field as well – it is used to treat migraines, TMJ, muscle spasms, and more. It takes neurotoxins about two weeks after treatment for the patient to see the full effect. Each treatment lasts about 4-6 months.
