How long is the duration of Botulinum Toxin?
Botulinum toxin works by binding to receptors that provide nerve signals to ensure the functioning of the muscles. However, since our body always produces new receptors and neurotransmitters, the effect of botulinum toxin will therefore be temporary. Although the patient varies from one patient to another, the duration of the effect varies between 3-6 months.
What should be considered for effective botulinum toxin injection?
Botulinum toxin is an unstable protein because it is temperature-sensitive and time-sensitive. It should be carefully diluted and used when it is fresh and cooled.
Applying the injector to the right place is also very important in botulinum toxin applications. Since botulinum toxin starts to work where it is injected, it must be applied into the target muscle. The practicing physician must have sufficient experience of the target muscle points.
