BOTOX® is the product name of the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin and is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, as well as neck bands in adults.Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes and collagen depletion. When you frown or concentrate, your facial muscles contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity which temporarily paralyzes the muscle and reduces the activity of the muscles that cause wrinkles to form over time. It’s recommended that you repeat your treatment at 3 to 4 month intervals. This helps prevent fine lines from forming because of your facial muscles.
Studies have shown that BOTOX® can effectively relieve migraine headaches, excessive armpit sweating (hyperhidrosis) and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Since the effects of BOTOX® are temporary, such dry mouth, discomfort or pain at the injection site, tiredness, headache, neck pain, and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight, drooping eyelids, swelling of your eyelids, and dry eyes
