BOTOX has enjoyed growing popularity over the last few years as an effective treatment for lateral crow’s feet and frown lines. Injected through the skin into the underlying muscle, BOTOX works by paralyzing the muscles responsible for causing the wrinkles. Since the muscle cannot continue to function, lines soften and in some instances, are eliminated. BOTOX is not permanent, lasting anywhere between four to six months. It is often used in conjunction with other skin refinishing treatments for maximum results.

BOTOX Risks & Reactions

Risks include an allergic reaction to the toxin, swelling, redness, bruising, numbness, and headaches. Rarely, a reduced blinking reflex, which may last for several months, can cause corneal exposure and ulceration.
