The paralyzing effects of the toxin depends on the dose and occurs between 24 and 48 hours after inoculation, reaching the maximum effect between 7 and 15 days after the injection.
Traditionally botox is applied in the upper third of the face to correct expression wrinkles that occurs in areas such as: between eyebrows, crow's feet and forehead wrinkles. But over time the botox application has evolved and now is also used to improve and embellish the overall look.
