The Bo Tn or Btx is a common aesthetic treatment that has been made available for many years. The treatment is minimally invasive and there is no need for any surgery. When administered in safe doses, patients can see significant difference with little or no side effects
The botulinum toxin is injected into target areas especially those with static wrinkles caused by muscle contractions or places where patients experience excessive sweating. The toxin works in blocking nerve signals to the muscle thus reducing contractions and reducing the activity of sweat glands.
Wrinkles and fine line will be reduced within 7 to 10 days after treatment and skin will look smoother while your non-target muscles will not be affected, ensuring facial expressions remain normal.
A standard botulinum toxin effect last for 3 to 4 months but regular treatments are required for maintenance. The effects will last longer after regular injections and maintenance injections only need to be done every 6 months.
Side effects ofbotulinum toxin is rare but post-treatment may include some numbness and minimal bruising that exist temporarily and will subside quickly. Patients can immediately get back to their daily routine with no downtime. Our doctors are always available to handle issues if our patients have any post-treatment issues.
