Botox

Technically, onabotulinumtoxinA, has been FDA approved for cosmetic use since 2002 when it was to be used on the glabellar (between the eyebrows) wrinkles. It works on many areas of the face in a cosmetic fashion by weakening muscles which are causing deep furrows or wrinkles. Two other toxins, abobotulinumA or Dysport, and incobotulinumA or Xeomin, work in a similar fashion to Botox.

Areas now commonly treated are:

  • Forehead transverse wrinkles
  • Glabellar wrinkles
  • Lateral Periorbital (crow’s feet)
  • Nasal (bunny lines)
  • Perioral (vertical lip lines)

These areas can all benefit from judicious use of the neuromodulator drugs like Botox. Care in dosing and a knowledge of facial anatomy are crucial to avoid an overdone, paralytic result, and to avoid inadvertent weakening of important muscles of eyelid and mouth control. The neuromodulators all last approximately 90 days with minor variations in time of onset and duration of effect. Interestingly, the Revance company has trials underway of a topical BoNT-A for the glabella and crow’s feet areas. Prices in most offices are per unit. Some rough guidelines to help with cost estimate for treatment are as follows:

  • Glabella: 20-30 units
  • Forehead: 10-20 units
  • Crow’s feet: 15-22.5 units
  • Vertical lip: 2.5-7.5 units
  • DAO (lip corner depressor): 2-5 units
  • Nasal (bunny) 2.5-5 units
  • Platysmal bands: 30-40 units

What is Botox?

Botox® injection is a cosmetic procedure that reduces the look of lines and wrinkles of the face and neck. Botox injection contains botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that relaxes muscles to smooth out lines and wrinkles.

Botox injection can temporarily improve the look of crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines, and skin bands on the neck.

Who is not a good candidate for Botox?

You may not be a good candidate if:

  • You are allergic to any ingredient in Botox or another botulinum toxin product.
  • You have a skin infection at the planned site of injection.
  • You are pregnant or breast-feeding.
  • You have a muscle or nerve condition such as ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) or myasthenia gravis.
  • You have a severe illness or infection.

How long will the results last?

Most people see results within a few days, but it may take up to a week to see the full effect. Botox usually lasts about three to four months. More injections are necessary to maintain your results.
