How Botox Works

by Greg McCracken - Apr 10, 2015 - Dermal Fillers

What is Botulinum toxin and how does it work?

At Mountain View Dermatology & Aesthetics in Tucson, we use Botulinum toxin Xeomin® and Dysport® to remove wrinkles through temporary paralysis of certain facial muscles. Once the muscles are relaxed, wrinkles fade away. So, your face looks smoother and more youthful.

These Neurotoxins can help to reduce moderate-to-severe crow’s feet and other lines around the eyes, as well as frown lines and forehead lines. It works by blocking nerves’ signals to the muscles, which become paralyzed. This temporary paralysis causes wrinkles to soften and relax.

Can it help me?

Botulinum toxin, Xeomin and Dysport are widely used because of their ability to smooth wrinkles and give a more youthful appearance to your face. After treatment, they generally takes three days to seven days to begin working; some people may require up to a little more than a week to see the full effects.

The treatments soften and reduce wrinkles, so your face appears younger, healthier, well-rested and relaxed. The anti-aging effects can last for 3 to 4 months.
