What is Botox?
Botox is a brand name neuromodulator, for a cosmetic injectable neuromodulator. decades ago, researchers found that when injected in small doses, the botulinum toxin temporarily blocks nerve signals in the muscles. Without the nerve signal, the muscle will not move. Over time, approximately 3 months, the botox wears off and the muscle will return to full movement.
Other brand names include Dysport, Xeomin Jeauvaeu and Daxxify. Injecting the reconstituted/mixed product in small amounts will relax your muscles by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscle. Without the nerve signal, the muscle cannot contract or move.
Is the injection painful?
Botox and Dysport treatments are injected with ultra-fine needles making the treatment relatively pain free.
