BOTOX® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is used to rejuvenate the upper part of the face to reduce wrinkles and frown lines. It is very safe and effective in reducing the signs of aging by decreasing or erasing the frown lines between eyes, the crow's feet around the eyes, and the forehead wrinkles. This drug is FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles, and has been used since 1973. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments can also be used to reduce the lines around the mouth and to tighten the skin under the neck.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments and injections are fast gaining increased popularity and widespread use as a wrinkle reducer. It has been used for years by actors, actresses, models, and news anchors. People want to start while they are young to prevent wrinkles from getting worse. But it is used by people of all ages for helping people look younger. It is used in addition to lasers, microdermabrasion, facial peels, chemical peels, and collagen or other fillers. It is a great natural-looking alternative to having a face lift.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment works to reduce wrinkles and give the face a refreshed appearance by preventing the ability to frown or wrinkle the face. It does so by blocking the release of acetocholine, which is the messenger from the nerve to the muscle telling it to contract or frown.

BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts 3 to 6 months following an injection. The results are impressive in softening and reducing fine lines and wrinkles to give a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance. You will look younger and more rested within 5 to 10 days after injection.

Side effects are minimal. If patients are on anti-inflammatory medications like tylenol, ibuprofen, or aspirin, there may me some bruising at the site of the injection. There may be slight pink coloration and minimal swelling at the area of the injection which resolves within minutes. Rarely there may be a droopy eyelid which resolves on its own in a few weeks, but can be quickly corrected by special eye drops.
