What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. For over a decade ophthalmologists have used BOTOX® for their original intention, the treatment of blepharospasm. Physicians have utilized BOTOX® for years as cosmetic treatments to correct visible signs of stress and aging.
How does BOTOX® work?
The contractions and movements of the facial muscles are controlled by signals from the brain. BOTOX® simply prevents the muscle from responding to these messages. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the overlying skin remains unwrinkled and smooth.
What is a BOTOX® treatment like?
With a very fine needle, BOTOX® is injected into the specific muscle that is contracting and causing the lines and wrinkles on the face. Treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. The pain is a minimal “pin prick” and no anesthetic is required. Immediately following your treatment you may resume regular activities!
How long does a BOTOX® treatment last?
The effects usually last 3 to 4 months, and fade away gradually. Following several treatments, the results may last 4 to 8 months or longer. BOTOX® offers extended relief over the course of long-term treatment.
Are there any possible side effects of BOTOX®?
Side effects of BOTOX®, if any, are usually mild and temporary. Botulinum toxin contains proteins, which in some circumstances may be naturally safeguarded against by the body’s ability to produce antibodies. If antibodies are formed, the therapy will generate a lesser response. Temporary bruising after injections is sometimes experienced, though this symptom resolves itself within 2 to 3 days. In rare cases, there can be a slight drooping of an eyelid or asymmetry of expression. If this should happen, please contact us immediately.
What type of results will I see with BOTOX®?
Typically, the effect of BOTOX® is visible within 3 days. Maximum benefits are reached between 10 to 14 days. Once the muscle relaxes and the skin softens, you will have a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
