How BOTOX® Can Help Resolve Certain Eye Conditions

beautiful middle age woman posing with hand in hair For many years, BOTOX® has been among the most common dermal injectable treatments to slow or reverse the signs of aging in the face. During a very short in-office visit, specific amounts of BOTOX® are injected just below the skin in certain areas of the face to slow the development of wrinkles and creases.

This safe and effective treatment provides results up to a year after each treatment. However, the active ingredient, botulinum toxin A, not only brings results that build upon each other, but doctors and researchers have also discovered it to be a great treatment option for many conditions on the face unrelated to the aesthetic effects of aging.

BOTOX® works temporarily and safely, blocking the signals sent to the muscles on your face that cause them to contract and relax. When used over a long period of time, it is possible for these muscles to slowly lose their strength from inactivity and require less of the formula to be injected or allow more extended periods between treatments.

Not only does the block of muscle contractions help prevent the continued development of lines and wrinkles on the face, but it can also be used to treat various other conditions, including some related to your vision.

Since BOTOX® works by blocking specific muscles where it is injected from contracting, it can provide significant relief to crossed eyes caused by muscle contractions and relax the muscles that cause uncontrolled blinking.

Similar to its use in addressing aesthetic and cosmetic issues, the results from these treatments are temporary, and follow-up treatments may be necessary. However, with regular use and in conjunction with other treatments, there is a good chance of substantial relief.

Whether for cosmetic or other reasons, BOTOX® can help various conditions on your face. Call Dr. W. John W. Murrell, Ophthalmology and Oculoplastic Surgeon in Amarillo, TX, at 806-351-1177 or visit to schedule a consultation.
