Is Botox® toxic?
What is Botox®?
- • the frowning lines between the eyebrows,
- • the horizontal forehead lines noticed upon raising the eyebrows,
- • the crows-feet around the outer sides of the eyes,
- • the nasal bunny-lines caused by scrunching, and others.
For the lines that are present in our face at rest, (without us moving anything when looking at ourselves in the mirror) such as the smile nasolabial lines and the chin line, the cosmetic treatment to fill those lines with a dermal filler is accomplished by injecting dermal fillers in those lines, such as Juvederm®, Restylane®, Radiesse®, and others. Those are wrinkles present at rest, without motion, and it is also known as static wrinkles. Those are treated with dermal fillers, not with Botox®.
After injected, Botox® begins to act in 1-2 days, peaks at 12-14 days, stays strong for another 2 months, and then begins to fade, so the next treatment is recommended at about 3.5 to 4 months from the initial injection. Dermal fillers’ results are seen immediately, and it lasts between 9-12 months, depending on the area.

About Rhode Island:
Officially the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. Rhode Island is the smallest in area, the eighth least populous, and the second most densely populated of the 50 U.S. states, following New Jersey. Its official name is also the longest of any state in the Union. Rhode Island is bordered by Connecticut to the west, Massachusetts to the north and east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south via Rhode Island Sound and Block Island Sound. The state also shares a short maritime border with New York.
On May 4, 1776, Rhode Island became the first of the Thirteen Colonies to renounce its allegiance to the British Crown, and was the fourth among the newly sovereign states to ratify the Articles of Confederation on February 9, 1778. It boycotted the 1787 convention that drew up the United States Constitution and initially refused to ratify it. On May 29, 1790, Rhode Island became the 13th and last state to ratify the Constitution.
