What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a trade name for Botulinum toxin type A, being produced by a bacterium call Clostridium botulinum. Believe it or not, research with BOTOX® Cosmetic goes back to the 1940’s with a search for a vaccine against botulism.  In the 1960’s it was used to treat crossed eyes and used today for headaches, neck pain and abnormal muscle spasms.  Now, seventy countries use BOTOX® Cosmetic and it has been endorsed by the National Institute of Health since 1990.

How does it work?

Normally, nerves communicate to muscles to make them contract by using a chemical transmitter called acetylcholine.  BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking the nerve from releasing acetylocholine relaxing the muscle.  When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected near a wrinkle the muscle underneath relaxes and the wrinkle disappears.

How do I get BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the affected muscles with a very fine gauge (small) needle.  Some people report a minor sting from the injection.

When does it start to work, and for how long?

Results can be seen as early as 3 to 7 days. Maximum benefit is seen in 1 to 2 weeks.  Your first treatment may give you dramatic results lasting usually 3 months.  Repeat injections can be given approximately 4 times a year. When you first notice the relief beginning to fade you should return for another treatment. This will keep the dose smaller allowing you to use BOTOX® Cosmetic longer.

Sounds great, but what are the side affects?

You should not get BOTOX® Cosmetic injections if you have an infection in the skin near the injection sight. Make sure you inform us if you are pregnant, nursing or taking certain medications.  Side affects with BOTOX® Cosmetic when given in the skin are usually mild and temporary.  Some people notice temporary muscle weakness or tenderness at the injection sight.  BOTOX® Cosmetic when given to treat crossed eye can be associated with a droopy eyelid, eye irritation or dry eye. When given to patient with severe neck pain (cervical dystonia) difficulties with swallowing may occur.
