Botulinum toxin is most commonly used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. But getting a shot can help treat other conditions, such as severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), chronic migraines and nerve disorders. How does it work? Botulinum toxin blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles so that the injected muscle can’t contract. This makes wrinkles relax and soften. Botulinum toxin is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. Getting Botulinum toxin takes only a few minutes by using a small needle to inject into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes 7 to 14 days to take full effect and can last up to 6 months.
