As we get older, repetitive movements (such as facial expressions) create wrinkles in the upper third of the face. By relaxing these muscles, Botox® reduces the look of lines in the brow and forehead as well as crow’s feet around the eyes, resulting in skin that is smoother and more youthful in appearance. Botox® is useful for other unwanted wrinkles on the face, specifically the upper lip and/or chin. Botox is also a prescribed treatment for excessive sweating disorders.
BOTOX® treatment can help control Hyperhydrosis (excessive underarm sweating) by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. The symptoms will return over time and you will know when another treatment is necessary for you.
Because there is no sedative or anesthetic used with Botox® (except possibly for Hyperhydrosis), patients can return to normal activities immediately after the procedure. When the product begins to wear off, the wrinkles begin to reappear; however, they frequently are not as deep as the original ones. It usually takes two or three treatments each year to maintain the smooth, youthful appearance that is desired.
