Botox Overview

By RealSelf
Botox Cosmetic injections relax facial muscles to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Botox usually treats:
  • Existing facial lines caused by repetitive muscle movement
  • Botox also prevents new lines from forming
  • Common injection sites for addressing wrinkles and lines are: glabella (region between eyebrows), forehead, outer corners of eyes (crow's feet), sides of mid-chin (for down-turned mouth), neck (for neck bands or visible cords)
Botox can also treat:
  • Facial asymmetry or other facial conditions that result from muscle action; this is called "facial shaping"
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive perspiration or sweating); common injection sites are underarms, palms, scalp and soles of feet
  • Migraines
Results from Botox injections can last up to 4 months. Botox side effects are discussed here
