What is BOTOX® ?
BOTOX® is commonly used to reduce forehead lines, worry lines, crow’s feet and vertical lines between eyebrows.
BOTOX® is the trade name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, a purified toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. It acts by blocking the nerve impulses to muscles. By using extremely small doses of BOTOX®, injected directly into a specific muscle, only the action of that muscle will be
paralyzed. Therefore, the problem that muscle causes, like a frown line, or in other cases, a twitch or spasm, will be paused.
Where is BOTOX® injected?
The frown line between the eyebrows is caused by the action of a muscle called the corrugator. You can feel this as a thickening just below the inside of your eyebrows, when you purposefully make yourself frown.
Can BOTOX® be used for other wrinkles or other problems?
BOTOX® is also effective in the treatment of crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles.*
BOTOX® is also used for excess sweating (underarms, palms), migraines, tremors and other conditions*
How long will the effects of BOTOX® last?
The actual treatment takes only a few minutes and the BOTOX® takes effect in three to four days. Gradually, over three to five months, the BOTOX® effect will fade, and the muscle action will return. When the frown line starts to reappear, a simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the desired result. Individual results will vary in each patient.*
How has BOTOX® been tested?
BOTOX® has been used since 1980 for the treatment of strabismus (lazy eye) and blepharospasm (uncontrolled eye blinking). The use of BOTOX® for forehead wrinkles was pioneered in 1989 by Dr. Jean Carruthers of Vancouver
What are the side effects?
There have been minimal side effects from the use of BOTOX®. The temporary side effects of BOTOX® are related to the local injection of the solution. There will be some discomfort from the needle entering the skin. Your medical practitioner may apply a local anesthetic to alleviate discomfort. There is also a small chance of a temporary bruise at the site of the injection. You will need to remain upright for a few hours following the procedure. Approximately 1% of patients will develop a slight lowering or drooping of one eyelid (also known as ptosis). This is temporary. Some patients report headaches on the first day.
