Botox™ is the registered trademark name of a purified protein used to weaken facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Currently FDA approved for softening the glabellar lines or #11 sign between your eyebrows, Botox™ has been used in treating muscular disorders for more than two decades when improvement of certain facial wrinkles was observed by physicians and patients. As the number one cosmetic procedure performed in the United States today, there have been no reported allergic reactions from injection.

Where do they Work?

Botox™ work best for softening wrinkles caused by the activity of facial muscles, also known as dynamic wrinkles. Typically, these wrinkles are located in the upper third of the face and include the horizontal forehead wrinkles, the wrinkles in between the eyebrows (known as glabellar wrinkles), and those around the eyes (known as crow’s feet). When applied to the area between the eyebrows, the elimination of the wrinkles gives a vibrant appearance. In addition, Botox™ injected around the eye may improve the crow’s feet area while lifting the brow. Its application in the forehead area will help to smooth out the horizontal wrinkles. Botox™ also works for wrinkles around the nose and lips, neck bands, and hyperhydrosis or undesirable underarm sweating.

Is Botox™ Right for you?

Botox™ injections are considered a minimally invasive procedure for facial rejuvenation. Their use does not preclude surgical procedures, such as face lift or eyelid surgery. In fact, the application of Botox™ with other procedures will improve wrinkles not treated by the surgical procedure and further enhance the result. While there are currently no absolute contraindications, there are some less common medical conditions which makes application inadvisable.

Understanding Botox™

While patients can return to normal activity, patients are asked to refrain from exercise the same day. The effects become apparent in five to seven days. Occasionally more may have to applied in the second week to perfect the appearance. The result usually lasts about four to five months. As the patient continues repeat treatments, the time between the treatments may increase. Studies suggest that concurrent use of Botox™ for 7 years may permanently reduce muscle activity and prevent wrinkle formation.
