How Botulinum toxin works
Neuromodulators are injectable medications, which temporary block communication between skeletal muscles and nerve fibers, leading to relaxation of treated muscle fiber. This leads to improvement of facial lines and wrinkles and smoothing of the skin. Neuromodulators are also used to tread excessive sweating also called hyperhidrosis, migraine headaches and TMJ pain.
Botulinum toxin type A is approved by FDA and most effective to treat facial wrinkles (rhytids). There are several different Botulinum toxin type A products available on US market. Desert Bloom skin care offers Botox by Allergan Cosmetics and Xeomin by Mertz.
Please keep in mind, we are very conservative with Botulinum toxin, we always recommend to inject less at your first visit and come back for a follow up 14 days later, to add more if needed. Botulinum toxin starts to take effect in 3 hours, most effect is seen in 2 weeks and it starts to wear off in 3 months. We highly recommend to take advantage of collagen boosting treatments during these three months to prolong wrinkle and line reducing effect of the toxin.
