What is Botox?

Botox is a drug that doctors, nurses and trained health practitioners use to treat facial creases and wrinkles. It is made from a toxin secreted by the bacterium ClostridiumBbotulinum. This drug is used in small amounts to smooth facial wrinkles, which provides a you with a better physical appearance (more toned).

Besides treating wrinkles, a Botox injection can treat other conditions like excessive underarm sweating, uncontrollable blinking, overactive bladder, chronic migraines and cervical dystonia.

Only trained healthcare professionalsadminister Botox injections, plain and simple and no exceptions. A nurse or a doctor, for example,decides how much Botox is needed for a desired look and injects Botox into a muscle. Typically, Botox sessions are spaced three months apart. 

If you treat the area around your eyes, you will need to use an ointment, eye drops, or a special contact lens to protect your eye area. When you receive the Botox treatmentat our office, we will give you instructions and you are always more than welcome to ask us any additional questions.

If you suffer from excessive sweating and are being treated, consider shaving your underarms 24 hours before receiving the injection. Avoid eating spicy foods, hot beverages and exercising 30 minutes before getting a Botox treatment.

The eye muscle spasm symptoms may begin to improve 1-3 days after your session. However, you’ll experience great improvement 2-6 weeks after your session.
