What is a BOTOX® treatment and why is it done?

BOTOX® is a surgical injection of botulinum toxin, given to

  • temporarily reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck
  • to relieve migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes

by blocking the nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. 

How is a BOTOX® treatment done?

  • The patient is seated upright after which the injection is targeted into the muscle to be treated
  • The patient receives an average of three injections per muscle and is asked to gently press a gauze pad against the injection site and/or hold to it for a few minutes.
  • The process is repeated depending upon the number of sites to be treated.

How is a BOTOX® treatment done to treat hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating? BOTOX® is directly injected into the skin in the area that is sweating excessively.
