At present, the basic ingredients of Botulinum toxin type A (botox)that can be used in domestic hospitals are the same, and the effect of Botulinum toxin injection is generally only 3-6 months to remove wrinkles, and the effect may grow appropriately after multiple injections, but generally will not exceed one year. The long-acting botulinum toxin recommended in the market lacks scientific basis.
The effects of Botox are not permanent and begin to fade after about 3-6 months. Because it can only control muscle movement and squeezing of the fold, it cannot repair damaged cells. It is recommended that after 3-6 months of the first injection, a second supplemental injection be given, and after about six months, a third injection. After completing a holistic course, i.e. three continuous injections, only one injection per year is required thereafter. Botox will last longer and longer, giving a long-term cumulative effect, but repeated injections will inevitably have some side effects.
