Botox and COVID vaccineI have noticed over the last year or so that neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport have not been effective or do not last as long in patients that I have been treating for many years in my practice. I retreated my patients with a different neurotoxin after a 3-month neurotoxin break. I wondered if other health practitioners experienced either neurotoxin ineffectiveness or a short duration of results. There have been small studies that have shown a decrease in the effect of botulinum Type A when injected close to receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. This issue was seen after an initial treatment with Dysport and with subsequent treatment with Botox Cosmetic.
