What is a Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum Toxin is a brand name for a type of medicine that contains botulinum toxin, a substance that can temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles and other cosmetic or medical issues. Botulinum Toxin injections are given by a licensed healthcare provider in small doses to target specific areas of the face or body. Botulinum Toxin can be used to treat conditions such as chronic migraine, excessive sweating, eyelid spasms, and overactive bladder, as well as to improve the appearance of frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

About the Botulinum Toxin Procedure

The Botulinum Toxin procedure is usually done in an office setting and takes about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the number and location of the injections. Before the procedure, the provider will clean the skin and may apply a topical anesthetic or ice to numb the area. The provider will then use a thin needle to inject Botulinum Toxin into the muscles that need to be relaxed. The provider may ask you to contract or relax certain muscles to help guide the injections. You may feel a slight pinch or sting during the injection, but most people tolerate the procedure well.

Botulinum Toxin Recovery

There is no downtime after a Botulinum Toxin procedure, and you can resume your normal activities right away. However, you should avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area, as this may cause the Botulinum Toxin to spread to other muscles and cause unwanted effects. You should also avoid lying down, exercising, or drinking alcohol for at least four hours after the procedure. You may experience some mild side effects, such as pain, swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site, headache, flu-like symptoms, droopy eyelids, or crooked smile. These side effects are usually temporary and resolve within a few days or weeks. If you have any severe or persistent side effects, such as difficulty breathing, swallowing, or speaking, you should seek medical attention immediately.

Are you the right candidate for a Botulinum Toxin?

You might be a good candidate for Botulinum Toxin if you have moderate to severe wrinkles or other cosmetic or medical issues that can be improved by relaxing the muscles. You should also be in good health, not smoke, have realistic expectations, and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure. However, Botulinum Toxin may not be suitable for everyone. You should not get Botulinum Toxin if you are allergic to botulinum toxin or any of the ingredients in the product, have an infection at the injection site, are pregnant or breastfeeding, or have a neuromuscular disorder, such as myasthenia gravis or ALS. You should also inform your provider if you have any medical conditions, take any medications, or have had any previous cosmetic procedures. Your provider will evaluate your medical history, examine your skin, and discuss your goals and expectations to determine if Botulinum Toxin is right for you.


Botulinum Toxin results are not permanent and usually last between three to six months, depending on the individual and the area treated. You will need to get repeat injections to maintain the results.

At Ciplastic, the starting cost for a Botulinum Toxin procedure is $5.00 usd per unit. Your final cost will depend on your specific individual needs.

Botulinum Toxin is generally safe and effective when performed by a qualified and experienced provider. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential complications. These include:

  • Pain, swelling, bruising, or redness at the injection site.

  • Headache or flu-like symptoms.

  • Droopy eyelids or crooked eyebrows.

  • A crooked smile or drooling.

  • Watery or dry eyes.

  • Infection at the injection site.

  • Rarely, the Botulinum Toxin may spread to other parts of the body and cause serious symptoms, such as loss of strength, muscle weakness, double vision, blurred vision, hoarseness, difficulty speaking, swallowing, or breathing, and trouble with bladder control. This is a medical emergency and requires immediate attention.

  • Allergic reaction to the product, which may cause hives, itching, rash, swelling, or anaphylaxis. This is also a medical emergency and requires immediate attention.
