Botox is medication of a purified botulinum neurotoxin. Medication helps to block the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles. Many of the wrinkles and lines in the skin are due to muscle insertions into the skin, and temporarily weakening the muscles can treat those lines. If they are treated before they form an etched line in the skin, it can prevent this process. Existing lines, such as forehead furrows, can be lessened by treatment.
Treating frown lines, crow’s feet, and horizontal forehead lines with Botox is fast, safe, and simple. Patients feel “refreshed” after the muscles around their eyes relax and feel like a weight has been lifted off of their face.
Botox can be used medically to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating in the underarm areas, palms, and soles). Using Botox to treat medically refractory migraine headaches is a well established and effective treatment supported by many medical trials.
The first results of Botox treatment can be seen within two days, with the maximum effect becoming after 12 days and the treatment lasting for up to six months.
