As with dermal fillers, BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments , Dysport™ ® and Xeomin™ ® Neuromodulators require a simple injection into affected areas. Small doses of these neuromodulators are injected into the specific muscles that cause the unwanted expression lines in the face and neck causing those muscles to weaken and the wrinkles to soften.

After the injection, it may take 3 to 14 days to achieve the full effect, which should then last from 3 to 4 months. Injections must be repeated to maintain the effects. Repeat injections commonly result in the effect lasting slightly longer, once the memory of the initial muscle action that created the wrinkle starts to fade. The procedure is quick, painless, and requires no recovery time.
