BOTOX® Frequently Asked Questions
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX is a non-invasive option that is widely used to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and glabellar lines, or the vertical lines in between the eyebrows. It may also be injected in the area around the patient’s eyes to improve the condition known as crow’s feet, or wrinkle formation on the side of the eyes.
How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX is injected directly into the muscles in the forehead, between the eyebrows, or in other areas to block muscle contraction. The result is reduced muscular activity in the treated areas. Over time temporarily paralyzing of the underlying muscle results in a significant reduction in the appearance of wrinkles and lines. The treated patient’s skin will look smoother, firmer, and younger.
How long does BOTOX last?
The administration of BOTOX takes only a few minutes but the effects can last for up to four months.
Are there any side effects from BOTOX injections?
Side effects recorded with the use of BOTOX include the usual discomfort at the injection site, headaches, neck pain, tiredness, and dry mouth in some cases. Patients are advised to avoid applying any unnecessary pressure on the treatment areas. This will help to avoid other adverse effects including swelling or drooping eyelids, dry eyes, blurred vision, double vision, or decreased eyesight. If symptoms of an allergic reaction such as itching, redness, dizziness, or difficulty in breathing are experienced, the patient must seek medical attention right away.
Are there any any other benefits to BOTOX injections?
Botox has been demonstrated to alleviate Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), TMJ (jaw pain) and migraine headaches.
