Botulinum toxin type A, commonly known as Botox®, works best to reduce forehead, frown, and under eye lines as well as lax eyebrows and crows feet. It works by paralyzing the muscle to decrease movement most associated with causing wrinkles.
Botox® injections are the most common type of cosmetic procedure administered in the United States. Medical professionals have recently begun to use Botox® to treat a number of conditions including: overactive sweat glands, migraines, and leaky bladders.
You should expect to see results from treatment within 24 to 72 hours. Common side effects include flu-like symptoms, headaches, numbness, dizziness, and redness or swelling of the injection side.
