Botox Cosmetic (a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria) has been used safely by opthalmologists for over 20 years. Botox Cosmetic has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990's with no serious side effects documented.
Botox Cosmetic injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow's feet.
A small amount of Botox Cosmetic is injected right into the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles. Botox Cosmetic effectively inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically. It may take a few days to notice the wrinkle smoothing effect after receiving Botox Cosmetic injections.
Some of the common areas treated include crow's feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles.
A Botox Cosmetic treatment is quick and results usually last three to six months. After that you may return for a follow-up injection. Some doctors report that after several treatments, the effect of Botox Cosmetic appears to last longer, often up to several months.
The most common complication is a slight, temporary drooping of the eyelid. Botox Cosmetic is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body so you can return to full activity immediately.
Botox Cosmetic can be used by almost anyone: patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding or who have a neurologic disease should not use Botox Cosmetic.
A newer use for Botox Cosmetic includes reduction in sweating of armpits (hyperhydrosis). The results can usually be enjoyed for 6-9 months.
