What is BOTOX?
The FDA initially approved BOTOX in 2002 for cosmetic use. BOTOX is primarily used to reduce wrinkles of the face and wrinkles caused by movement such as crow’s feet, frown lines, and vertical lines. BOTOX is also proven to be effective in the treatment a variety of different body issues, including:
- Severe underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis)
- Uncontrollable blinking (blepharospasm)
- Eyes that point in different directions (strabismus)
- Overactive bladder
- Chronic migraines
- Cervical dystonia, severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms caused by a neurological disorder
BOTOX works by blocking the signals from the muscles to the nerves. This allows the wrinkles to soften and relax at the point of injection. The entire procedure is as quick as a flu shot, and patients see full results in as little as 1-2 weeks.
The results from a BOTOX injection wear off in roughly 3-6 months, although the wrinkles may appear less profound than before. This is because BOTOX often causes the muscles to shrink over time.
How Does BOTOX Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical, aesthetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that develop as we age.
Within days of just one quick in-office treatment, you will see a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment.
Your physician at Eye Physicians of Long Beach has specialized training in the injection of BOTOX Cosmetic. Individual results may vary.
Those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a neurological procedure, or are allergic to cow’s milk protein should not consider BOTOX. Schedule an evaluation with Eye Physicians of Long Beach to see if BOTOX is right for you!
