Botox, onabotulinumtoxinA injection, is a purified protein used to treat and prevent fine lines and wrinkles. Unlike dermal fillers, which can help build up volume, botox works differently.
Botox works to temporarily immobilize muscle activity by blocking nerve-muscle communication. Botox treatment may result in the treated muscle relaxing and allowing the skin to smooth out. This can result in a more natural-looking appearance, reduced frown lines and facial wrinkles, and accentuate your natural facial features. Results are normally seen within 10-14 days and last 3-4 months.
Dermal fillers and Botox can be used in combination; however, BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is indicated in adult patients for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity, moderate to severe lateral canthal lines associated with orbicularis oculi activity, and moderate to severe forehead lines associated with frontalis activity.
