Botulinum Toxin

The Art and Science of aesthetics to keep your face youthful

Botulinum Toxin injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles

In general, Botulim Toxin lasts 3-4 months. There will certainly be patients in which in lasts longer, in that 4-6 month range, or shorter, in that 2-month range. It is also common for first-timers to notice that it may not last as long initially but may last longer after the second treatment.

When injected, Botulinum Toxin blocks signals from your nerves to your muscles. This prevents the targeted muscles from contracting, which can ease certain muscular conditions and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum toxin is a substance derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum that has a paralyzing effect on muscle. This substance has been treated and converted into botulinum toxin A (onabotulinumtoxin A) in order to be applied in aesthetics to create a paralyzing effect on specific muscles of the face to prevent, eliminate or reduce expression lines or some types of wrinkles.

Although the first type of botulinum toxin was marketed by Allergan Aesthetics (an AbbVie company) under the name “Botox” and is popularly known for being the first, it is not the only company on the market offering this product. There are various injections of botulinum toxin type A on the aesthetic market, including Botox®, such as Dysport®, Xeomin®, and Jeuveau®, which produce the same effect as the first one created. At Universal, we use some of them interchangeably.

At Universal Laser Center, although we use Botox®, the most widely used aesthetic toxin is Jeuveau®, which has good results and a better price for clients, in addition to the fact that the effect is more prolonged, and it is approved by the FDA.
