How does botulinum work?
A proportion of the affected nerve fibres will
recover from the effect of the botulinum and
return to a degree of function.
The effect of the treatment is usually lasts
between three to four months with currently
available preparations and depends on the
location of treatment, the muscle volume and
the concentration of injection used.
As the effect ‘wears off’ the treated muscle begin
to move more normally.
Often the skin lines have softened during this
period and are less noticeable.
