BOTOX stands for botulinum toxin, a protein that temporarily blocks the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. By disrupting the nerve signals that tell the brain to contract the tiny facial muscles, BOTOX helps ease dynamic wrinkles, providing you with a more youthful, inviting countenance.

With BOTOX, patients can treat lines and creases for 3 to 6 months, with no downtime. BOTOX is FDA-approved to reduce crow’s feet, glabellar lines, and other signs of aging on the face, especially in smaller areas such as around the eyes. BOTOX results are noticeable within 10 to 14 days.

BOTOX for Excessive Sweating

In addition to smoothing the face and providing a more youthful appearance, BOTOX can be used to treat excessive sweating (also called hyperhidrosis). Usually, your nervous system activates your sweat glands when your body temperature rises. However, for people who suffer from hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive. 

Just as BOTOX relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles to form, BOTOX can block the nerves that activate your sweat glands in specific areas and thus successfully correct the concern.

What Happens After My Botox Session?

One of the greatest advantages of BOTOX is that it comes with no downtime or recovery. You can undergo your injections over your lunch break and quickly return to work, school, or shopping. Minor redness, soreness, and swelling may occur, but these side effects are not typically significant enough to keep you from enjoying the rest of your day; they fade rapidly. You should take care to avoid exercising, lying down, and exposure to intense heat for around 3-4 hours after your session.

What Areas Can Botox Treat?

While Botox can treat almost any area of the face to smooth wrinkles and lines, some areas respond better than others. Treatment areas include the following:

  • Forehead lines and wrinkles
  • The 11s between the brows
  • Crow's feet
  • Marionette lines and corners of the mouth
  • Smoker's lines
  • Neck bands
  • Sagging brows
