FAQ

Q.
How does Neuronox® work?
A.
Botulinum toxin is injected into muscles and works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected areas. This treatment reduces muscle activity that causes facial wrinkles. 1

Q.
When can I see results from Neuronox® treatment?
A.
You may see an improvement within 1~3 days after injection. It continue to improve and the significant results show up 1~3 months. The effectiveness lasts for 3 to 6 months. Duration may differ depending on the individual and the treatment method. 2, 3

Q.
How long does Neuronox® last?
A.
If you are satisfied with the results and want to maintain it, you would get a treatment regularly. Injections may be repeated when the effect of a previous injection has diminished, but generally no sooner than 12 weeks. The best time should be consulted with your doctor. 4

Q.
What are the possible side effects of Neuronox® treatment?
A.
The most common side effects are weakness of muscle and appearance of a bruise at the injected site. These side effects slowly diminish within 6 weeks after injection. Other common side effects in clinical trials of botulinum toxin treatment are headache, flu syndrome, eyelid drooping and nausea. A thorough understanding of facial muscle anatomy and proper injection technique are the best way to avoid these side effects. If you have any concern about side effects, please consult with your doctor. 5, 6
