BOTOX® is the treatment of frown lines, crows' feet, forehead wrinkles, and neck folds by method of BOTOX® injection directly into a specific muscle. The muscle becomes temporarily relaxed, thereby stopping the ability of the muscle to contract and allowing the lines to gradually fade. This can help prevent further wrinkling of the skin. This treatment lasts from 3 to 5 months.
BOTOX is injected in extremely small amounts in the affected muscle(s) by using a very tiny, disposable needle. (The needle is the size of an acupuncture needle) The entire treatment takes about 10 minutes. Since no sedation is necessary, patients can resume normal activities immediately.
BOTOX generally lasts 3-4 months, sometimes longer. However, after receiving injections over time, there appears to be a longer lasting effect. This could be due to relaxing of the muscles in the injected area and breaking the habit of certain facial expressions.
Because the needle is so tiny and such a small amount of solution is used, any pain experienced is usually described by patients as minimal and very short-lived.
Though side effects resulting from BOTOX are rare, some patients have experienced local discomfort, or headache following injection. However, symptoms are of generally mild and of short duration.
Botox can be used for prevention of increased sweating in the armpits, and then the effect lasts for about 8 months.
