Botox is an approved muscle-relaxing protein composed of onabotulinumtoxinA used to relax moderate to severe frown lines and Crow's feet lines in both men and women. The effects of the treatment will be noticed within a few days after injections and results can last on average three to four months.
The contraindications for Botox injections include:
- Weak muscles in the injection area
- Wrinkles that won’t smooth when you spread them apart
- An infection or inflammation at the injection site
