Botox® is the most popular cosmetic medical treatment in the US, and is a favorite among men and women looking for non-surgical facial rejuvena- tion. Botox® has a long history in ophthalmology and was first used for spastic eyelid disorders in the 1980s. It is still the most effective treatment available for lines, wrinkles, and facial reshaping. It has proven to be safe, effective, and economical.

How can Botox® help me?

Botox® is a safe, naturally occurring substance that causes muscle relaxation typically lasting three to four months. In high doses, Botox® will weaken muscles substantially, while in lower doses, the relaxation and weakening are subtle. These effects can be harnessed by your physician to improve frown lines between the brows, crow's feet at the outer corners of the eyes, horizontal lines in the forehead, and eyebrow height and shape. Botox® can also be used to treat vertical lip lines, down-turn at the lips, and twitching or spasm of the eyelids, cheeks, and face

How is Botox® administered?

Your physician will review your specific concerns and med- ical history and advise you about the best uses for Botox® in your situation. It is injected with a tiny needle directly into the muscle(s) causing wrinkles, spasm, or facial ag- ing. Mildly uncomfortable, the injections take only a few seconds. Effects begin to be visible at two to three days and are usually fully evident by one week. Bruising rarely occurs and fades naturally. Improvements in facial appearance and muscle relaxation typically last three to four months.

What are the risks?

Bruising can occur with any injection. Infection is extremely uncommon. Botox® can rarely induce weakness in a nearby muscle, causing asymmetry, or a droopy eyelid or lip. To minimize this risk, your physician will recommend that you avoid touching the injected areas for several hours so that the Botox® will bind to the intended muscles only. Facial fillers can also cause asymmetry, and rarely, a local sensitivity reaction.

Who should perform these treatments?

You should look for medical practices experienced with these treatments, and highly knowledgeable with the anatomy and physiology of the face. Dentists have the ideal credentials and specialize exactly in this area.
