Facts at a glance
Botox (botulism toxin) is a compound produced by
bacteria. It temporarily paralyzes muscle, beginning about 1 week after being
injected into the muscle. Botox can be used to smooth wrinkles in the neck
and face to create a more youthful appearance. It is especially useful in the
eye area. Removing wrinkles from between the eyes can dramatically change a
personís look from one of permanent anger or sadness to one of contentment and
Botox Injections are simple. First, the skin is treated
with a topical numbing agent, and you may be given a sedative as well. Next,
very small amounts of Botox are strategically injected in different parts of the
face. This is accomplished with thin needles that cause very little pain.

temporary and corrects itself without treatment within 2 to 3 weeks.
Most patients experience minimal pain or discomfort
following injections. Swelling and puffiness at the site of the injection
usually subside within a few days.
Care must be taken to keep the head upright and avoid
massaging the treated area, so that the Botox affects only the desired areas.
