Wrinkles and rhytids are caused by hyperactive facial muscles.
Botulinium Toxin, commonly known as Botox® and Dysport®, works by blocking the release of a neurotransmitter from nerve endings. The muscle injected with botulinium toxin becomes relaxed, thus reducing the wrinkling appearance.
It takes effect starting from 3-4 days and by 1 week the full result can be seen for most cases. Effects typically last between 4-6 months.
