Treatment for: Lines and Wrinkles, Excessive Sweating

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein which temporarily relaxes or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases and crow’s feet. It has become the most popular, non invasive cosmetic treatment in North America by giving the skin a natural, smoother, more relaxed and refreshed appearance.

 

Commonly treated areas

BOTOX® cosmetic is most commonly used to smooth the glabellar frown lines (those deep crease between your eyebrows that make you look mad even if you aren’t!!), forehead wrinkles and crows feet (the lines going out from the corners of the eye area). BOTOX® is also used alone or in conjunction with a filler to lessen the upper lip lines, mouth frown and irregular dimpled skin on the chin.

 

What to expect

A short 10 minute treatment with a few tiny injections is used to block the nerve pulses to relax the muscles in the area treated. The relaxation and reduction of contraction begin to take effect 5-7 days post treatment. The effects of the BOTOX® cosmetic usually last 3-4 months at which time another treatment with the same dose is required. It has been shown that after several repeated treatments, the effect begins to last longer and therefore fewer treatments are necessary per year.

Are there any side effects?

There is no known permanent side effect with BOTOX® therapy for facial wrinkles. However, there are a few temporary side effects which can occur including:

  • bruising and slight pain at the site of injection of the BOTOX®. A very tiny needle is used to minimize the discomfort and this can be lessened even more by the use of a topical anesthetic cream prior to treatment.
  • eyebrow or eyelid droop. This is seen in 1-2% of patients receiving BOTOX® therapy. It usually only lasts 2-4wks and is mild.
