We’ve all heard about the miracle results of Botox to reduce the appearance of some facial wrinkles. Although there are now many other injectables to choose from, Botox injections are still the popular choice to temporarily relax the facial muscles that cause wrinkles, such as frown lines, between the eyebrows, crow’s-feet, the lines that fan out from the corners of your eyes, and forehead furrows, the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows. This known “wrinkle eraser” is not just for cosmetic fixes, however, and can also be used to treat a list of problems including repetitive neck spasms, overactive bladder, excessive sweating, and ceratin causes of crossed eyes. Our Queens Botox doctor, Charles Kleinberg, MD, also uses Botox injections on some of our patients to help prevent their chronic migraines.
Botox was the first drug to use botulinum toxin, produced by the microbe that causes botulism. Botulism is actually a type of food poisoning, but in this application it temporarily paralyzes muscle activity. Our Queens Botox doctor explains to each patient how injections block specific chemical signals from nerves, mainly signals that cause muscles to contract. Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected directly into the chosen muscle with significant, noticeable results, without surgery and no recovery time.
Created by a company called Allergan, Botox has been around for over 20 years, and has an extremely high safety and effectiveness rate. Botox must be injected every three to six months to maintain its effect and keep the look of reduced wrinkles and smoother skin. Ultimately, it is far more important who is injecting your Botox, their technique, as well as their understanding of the product.
