Life In A Blender Family Medicine now offers FDA-Approved BOTOX® Injection Treatments for applications such as smoothing wrinkles on the forehead, opening the eyes by elevating eyebrow height, and decreasing or eliminating “crows feet” wrinkles around the upper cheeks and eyes.
BOTOX® is a therapeutic agent derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum – which is also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A. The name brand, BOTOX®, is produced in controlled laboratory conditions and administered in extremely small therapeutic doses. While the procedure is safe and simple, we will need to learn about any medications you may be taking, your overall health level, and any related allergen worries for each individual.
Originally intended for the treatment of blepharospasm (eye spasm) and strabismus (misalignment of the eye), BOTOX® is FDA approved for cosmetic use to improve the look of fine lines and superficial wrinkles between the brows caused from everyday brow furrowing as well as for migraines. Repeated daily facial expressions such as smiling, frowning, or squinting can also cause wrinkles this treatment is very effective for these areas. If you find that the early signs of aging are becoming apparent or if your facial expressions are causing premature wrinkles to appear, then BOTOX® may be for you. It is also often used in the prevention of wrinkles by prohibiting one from making some of the facial gestures that can cause wrinkles.
BOTOX® is injected with a micro-needle into the muscle(s) or areas that your individual needs require. The most requested areas of treatment are the forehead and outer eye area, with one to three injections usually given per muscle. Most patients report very little pain or discomfort associated with the injections, due to the tiny size of the micro-needle.
