What are the treatment areas for Botox neurotoxins?
The treatment areas for Botox neurotoxins include the forehead, frown lines between the eyebrows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox can also be used to treat other facial wrinkles, such as those around the mouth or chin, as well as certain medical conditions, such as migraines or excessive sweating.
How long do Botox neurotoxins last?
The effects of Botox neurotoxins typically last between three to six months, although this can vary depending on the individual patient and the specific treatment area.

Your doctor will provide specific instructions on how to care for the treated area, as well as any necessary medications or topical creams.
