Botox Injections - Side Effects

Botox works by limiting contraction of muscles. When used to treat wrinkles, a small amount is placed strategically into muscles of the face and neck that cause wrinkling of the overlying skin when contracted.  Areas treated include the Frown lines, Forehead lines, and the crow's feet.  By impairing contraction, wrinkles become less prominent. Botox also reduces excessive sweating by paralyzing the muscles associated with sweat glands and preventing them from sweating.

Botox treatment is performed by a physician, and treatment only takes a few minutes. The experience and skill of the physician, Dr. Alan Darush, performing the treatments are paramount to achieving optimal results. As a board certified physician, Dr. Darush knows how to put the right amount of Botox in just the right area to produce a natural and refreshed appearance. Too much Botox can result in a frozen and surprised look. Dr. Darush recommends natural look, like being able to make expressions while having a natural your looking skin without wrinkles.

Botox has a long history of safety. Although it's use for wrinkle reduction and excessive sweating is relatively recent, it has been used to treat other medical conditions for about twenty years. The most common side effect when used for wrinkle reduction is bruising; however, more serious side effects can rarely occur including temporary heaviness of the forehead, temporary drooping of the eyelid, and infection. These risks are minimized when an experienced physician performs the treatment. A side effect unique to treating excessive sweating of the palm is temporary weakness in grip strength of the treated hand.
