What is Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin that has been used for over 20 years by medical professionals for cosmetic and medical purposes.
How is Botox Used?
For cosmetic purposes Botox is injected into muscles to stop movement and smooth wrinkles on the face. The most common areas that are treated are the forehead, crows feet (wrinkles around the eyes) and the Glabella- known as “the 11’s” in between the eyebrows. Botox can also be used to help “gummy” smiles, vertical upper lip lines, to lift the corners of the mouth, platysmal neck bands, to create a brow lift and to help dimpling in the chin.
Some other off label uses of Botox would be to treat excessive sweating under the arms, TMJ and migraines.
