B-T came about in the year of 1970 and is used for the treatment of wrinkles. The injection is a diluted form of bacterial T. It is injected into the muscle beneath the skin in order to reduce the movement of the muscles thus reducing or correcting the wrinkles for a certain time period until the T wears off. B-T is injected so that the nerves cannot send signals to cause as much movement, which relaxes the face.
Once a person has the injection, they can expect to see results within a week. During this time bruising and swelling should decrease. The injection’s results are not permanent, it will begin to wear off in a matter of four to six months. However the effect tend to last longer with repeated injections. After this time period, the wrinkles actually come back and are once again visible.
As with any medical procedure, there are some side effects that can be experienced, including bruising, swelling, soreness, headaches, and eyelid drooping. It is important to keep in mind B-T does not treat all wrinkles, this is something that your surgeon will be able to discuss and determine with you.
This treatment has been around for many years and is much more reliable and safe than it has been in the past years.
