What is Botox®?
The substance most people know by the trade name Botox® is actually a compound called botulinum toxin. Clinical uses for this FDA-approved injectable substance include relief of migraine-induced headache pain, reduction of excessive perspiration, and treatment of muscle spasms. Though it is technically a toxin, its medicinal uses require such extremely low dosages that side effects from its toxicity are rare or nonexistent.
Botox® cosmetic applications
In its cosmetic applications, Botox® has proven one of the most popular and effective treatments available for reducing facial wrinkles, including crow’s feet, frown, and worry lines. Botox® works by blocking nerve impulses in the facial muscles that contract and cause wrinkles, causing a patient’s skin to appear smoother and more youthful. The treatment is temporary and loses its effectiveness in four to eight months.
What to expect after your Botox® treatment
There may be some slight redness, swelling, and bruising around the injection sites following your Botox treatment. Please notify your injector if you have a history of bruising and provide a list of prescriptions, vitamins and minerals you are taking, as these may increase the risk of bruising. Bruising can last up to 2 weeks. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities right away but some may want to rest for an hour or so after the injection process. Botox injections should provide results that last for around three to six months. Additional injections can be performed after this time to maintain your results.
