An Introduction to Botox

Botox is a non-invasive treatment that is used to eliminate the frown lines between the brows, flatten deep forehead wrinkles, and soften the 'crow's feet' eye wrinkles. These fine lines and wrinkles are caused from everyday facial exercises such as smiling, frowning, and squinting.

Botox works by relaxing the muscles of the face, which helps to produce a smooth and relaxed appearance. Contrary to what some believe, the aim of Botox treatment is not to create a frozen look with no expression; the goal is to soften lines with preservation of a natural appearance. The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes, and patients can immediately return to normal activities. After being injected ,the effect is not immediate, but takes a few days to 2 weeks to become noticeable.

Can Anyone Inject BOTOX?

While Botox treatments may seem straightforward, it takes skill and judgment to create a balanced and harmonious appearance. The anatomy of the face is complex, and varies from person to person. Patients should always seek a skilled and knowledgeable physician for their Botox treatment. We often see patients every day who have had negative experiences with previous Botox treatment from an inexperienced physician.

  • Can BOTOX really decrease underarm sweating (Hyperhydrosis) ?
  • Yes.

How Should I Prepare For a Treatment?

There is very little preparation for a treatment. However, patients should avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week prior to treatment. These agents could lead to bruising after injection. Also, patients who have previously suffered from facial cold sores are sometimes prescribed a medication to minimize recurrence.
