One of the world’s most well-known treatments for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles is Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox. Botox prevents certain muscles in the face from contracting, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles in high-movement areas like the forehead, area around the eyes, smile or frown lines, and more. Botox is also effective at halting excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, in the underarms, hands, and feet.

Botox, or botulinum toxin type A, is derived from the same bacteria that cause botulism. Botox contains a neurotoxin that freezes muscle contractions in tiny, specific parts of the face. Your doctor will consult with you about specific wrinkles or areas that could benefit from a smoother or younger-looking appearance and create a custom injection plan for you. Then you will receive a series of small injections in and around the micro-muscles that control wrinkled areas, resulting in a significant reduction in the appearance of those lines.

In addition to reducing the appearance of wrinkles temporarily and helping to reduce the production of excessive sweat from the underarms, hands, and feet, Botox can also treat several kinds of medical conditions. Botox can help those that suffer from strabismus, when the eyes point in different directions, as well as those that have eyelid spasms that causes rapid blinking. Those that have spasms in other parts of the body like the neck and those that have stiffness in the wrists and arms can also benefit from Botox’s muscle-freezing properties.

There are some people that should not use Botox, including those that have respiratory issues like emphysema and asthma, heart disease sufferers, those using blood thinning medications, and those that have drooping facial muscles around the eye area or forehead. To find out if a preexisting condition might interfere with your treatment, consult with one of Awazen Medical Center’s expert doctors before scheduling your Botox facial treatment.
