As people get older, various wrinkles appear on people's faces. In order to make themselves look younger, people choose to receive botulinum toxin injections to reduce wrinkles.
For safety reasons, you should only get botulinum toxin type A from a qualified medical provider such as a nurse practitioner, physician assistant, or doctor. While botulinum toxin type A is generally low-risk, it can be dangerous if administered incorrectly. Additionally, if your provider is not well versed in the facial anatomy, the botulinum toxin type A may be injected into the wrong muscles and create an undesirable result. Ideally, your provider should have plenty of experience administering the type of botulinum toxin type A treatments you seek. Before your injection, you should always have a consultation with the provider so they can check that the procedure is safe for someone with your medical history. A good provider will also take the time to ask detailed questions about your goals.
Botulinum toxin type A isn’t permanent, so you will need to keep getting maintenance treatments if you want to maintain your results. Most people find that their results last about three to four months, although your facial muscles may train themselves to contract less over time and extend out the period of time between treatment sessions.
If you stop getting botulinum toxin type A injection, the lines you’ve been preventing or reducing will get deeper over time. The benefits of your prior botulinum toxin type A treatments will eventually disappear. However, you can still restart your botulinum toxin type A treatments later if you want to achieve a smoother face again. Botulinum toxin type A is not recommended for people who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a neurological disease or are allergic to any of the ingredients (including cow’s milk protein). Regardless of which cosmetic injections or procedures you choose, you should always talk to a qualified medical provider first. Only a provider who is aware of your medical history and aesthetic goals can tell you if botulinum toxin type A is a safe and effective option for you.
