Botox injections are used to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows, and on the forehead (frown lines). Botox is a serum made from the neurotoxin, botulinum toxin A. It is injected into the skin around the eyes and in between the brows to disrupt nerve impulses to and from the brain, enabling muscles to fully relax. As the muscles relax, the appearance of the wrinkles soften. Several injections are placed strategically around the eye and used along the forehead. The needles used to inject Botox are ultra thin, therefore pain is not a significant issue. Patients often describe the injections as feeling like a pinch.
Results of a Botox treatment generally appear within 24-48 hours last from 3-6 months, depending on the integrity of the tissues within the treatment area. If the area being treated is still fairly strong, the treatment will last longer than if the tissues are weak and have lost the majority of their elasticity. Botox treatments provide substantial results for areas of the face that tend to give a away one’s age first; that’s around the eyes and on the forehead. Many types of medical professionals offer Botox treatment these days. To ensure your safety and aesthetically-natural looking results, always seek a doctor who has extensive experience in this procedure, such as the top-rate team at Eye Physicians of Austin.
In addition to being used as a cosmetic rejuvenation tool, Botox is also extremely effective in treating migraine headache and TMJ pain, excessive sweating, and muscles spasms that affect the neck and jaw area. The results are long lasting and the procedure is easily performed in the doctor's office. No preparation is required and there is no downtime.
