What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox® Cosmetic is an injectable neuromodulator that is comprised of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that blocks chemical signals from reaching the nerves and temporarily reducing muscle activity. Botox® is often used to improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which form due to repeated contraction of facial muscles caused by facial expressions like frowning, squinting, or smiling. Botox® Cosmetic helps to correct dynamic facial wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles and keeping them from contracting.

When will I see results?
Most patients begin to see the results of Botox® injections within the first 24 to 48 hours of a treatment session. Final results are typically visible within two weeks of an injection session with continued improvement for up to one month after a treatment session. Results of Botox® injections can last for up to four months. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve your desired results.
Are there any side effects?
Patients may experience some mild tenderness, swelling, bruising, and localized pain or discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own. Most side effects subside within a few days of an injection session.
How can Botox® be used for hyperhidrosis?
Botox® can be used to temporarily reduce or eliminate excessive sweating for six to eight months. Botox® is comprised of botulinum toxin that temporarily blocks chemical signals from the nerves. In the same manner that the botulinum toxin blocks chemical signals to keep facial muscles from contracting, it also blocks chemical signals that trigger a response from the sweat glands. By keeping the sweat glands in the treated area from responding, Botox® temporarily eliminates or reduces excessive sweating.
