What is Botox?

The procedure is virtually painless, with people who are particularly sensitive to pain, local anesthesia can be used. The toxin starts to work after approx. 72 hours, the full effect of the therapy is visible after 7-14 days and lasts for 4-6 months, with subsequent treatments uptime is increased.
