BOTOX injections are used to reduce the appearance of crow’s
feet around the eyes, frown lines between the eyebrows, and wrinkles on the forehead.
BOTOX works by temporarily reducing the muscle activity under your skin that is
responsible for creating these wrinkles. BOTOX can also treat excessive
sweating and eyelid twitching.
How BOTOX treatment is performed
BOTOX is a quick, non-surgical procedure that is performed
in the office and has no downtime.
Your doctor will use a fine needle to inject the BOTOX under
your skin and just into the underlying muscles. You will feel a pinch from the
needle, but the treatment isn’t painful. Your doctor may use ice or apply a
topical numbing agent to your skin for your comfort. The amount of injections
BOTOX for excessive sweating targets and reduces the
activity in your sweat glands. Injections are typically done in the underarms.
It’s more common to have a topical numbing agent for this sensitive area, and
you’ll need about a dozen or so injections for each side.
Recovery and results
There’s no downtime after your injections, but your doctor
may give you personalized post-treatment instructions. You’ll see results in
about one to two days, and results usually last around four months. BOTOX is
not permanent; you’ll need continued injections to maintain your results.Read More
