The Botox class of medications, known as neuromodulators, work by blocking the nerve signals needed for facial muscles to contract. Once injected, these neuromodulators cause relaxation of the targeted muscles causing a marked decrease in the ability to move these muscles. This leads to softening or temporary elimination of the appearance of dynamic wrinkles in the areas treated. Results will gradually become apparent over 3-14 days following injection.
Results from the original class of Botox medications typically last between 2-4 months from the date of injection. Results will begin to diminish gradually over time as the effect of the medication begins to subside. To maintain the positive effects of neurotoxins, periodic maintenance is recommended 3-4 times per year (every 3-4 months).
Also, a new longer lasting Botox rival was recently approved by the FDA. Clinical trials on Daxxify™ showed that results were maintained for a median time of 6 months.
Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau can be used to treat many areas. The most common areas treated include the “crow’s feet” around the eyes, horizontal lines on the forehead, and wrinkles between the eyebrows, commonly known as the elevens.
