BOTOXﾮ has been shown to be effective in treating the following conditions:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
- Brow lines
- Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
- Migraine headaches
- Eyelid spasms
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are a highly diluted derivative of Botulinum Toxin Type A, which relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkling by blocking the release of acetylcholine, the chemical that causes muscles to contract. Although F.D.A. approved in 2002, Plastic surgeons and dermatologists have been using BOTOXﾮ Cosmetic to treat facial wrinkles such as crow’s feet and frown lines for 10 years.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is extremely specific in how it reacts to block the release of acetylcholine and, as a result, only the muscles we inject are relaxed. Cosmetic injections typically last from 3-6 months. The rare side effects of getting a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection, such as a droopy eye, are only temporary.
Cosmetic injections are a great way to reduce facial wrinkles. With continued use, your wrinkles may actually lessen and may disappear for prolonged periods of time, become less and less noticeable, and frequently disappear for prolonged periods of time. Most people come in 2-3 times per year for BOTOX Cosmetic injections.
BOTOX® can also dramatically reduce excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). If injected under the arms, it can often reduce sweating completely. People usually request re-injecting 6 – 9 months later, even though only some of the sweating has returned.
Injections can be a great treatment for migraine headaches as well. Clinical studies performed by leading Plastic surgeons have demonstrated that BOTOX® is extremely effective in treating migraine and tension headaches. The duration of action of BOTOX® migraine prevention varies from about 10 to 13 weeks. Like other migraine preventives, the onset of effect may take a few weeks.
