What is Botox®?

Botox Amarillo TXBotox is a prescription drug that temporarily paralyzes the muscles when injected. It consists of a purified yet safe form of botulinum toxin A. This helps eliminate deep wrinkles in the skin caused by the continual contraction of facial muscles. Although Botox has cosmetic benefits, it also serves to treat multiple medical problems including overactive bladder, neck spasms, crossed eyes, excessive sweating, chronic back and jaw pain, and migraines.

Am I a Good Candidate for Botox®?

You may be a good candidate for Botox if you have:

  • Forehead furrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Skin bands on the neck

How is Botox® Injected?

Botox injects right into the facial muscles that are causing furrows and deep wrinkles by using a very fine needle. The procedure doesn’t require anesthesia, however, some doctors decide to numb the injected areas with a topical anesthetic cream or ice packs. Botox treatment is the most popular physician-performed nonsurgical cosmetic procedure in the US.

How Do Botox® Injections Work?

The safe, purified form of botulinum toxin A blocks the nerve impulses sent to muscles, which then weakens them to the point at which they cannot contract.
