Botox Overview

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 typically last four to six months.
Botox side effects are discussed here.
