What Is Botox?

Botox is a type of neuromodulator that inhibits nerve signals and relaxes muscles. It is injected in small quantities into specific points within the muscles of your face, jaw, neck, scalp, or armpits. This temporarily decreases muscle activity, helping to relax the area injected; relieve pain; stop sweating; and create a more refreshed appearance.

Botox injections are simple, fast, and no more painful than a mosquito bite. Treatment requires several injections, and an entire treatment only takes a few minutes to complete.

Botox for Cosmetic Treatments

Though there are many uses for Botox, it is most popularly applied to the face and neck as a cosmetic procedure to soften wrinkles. Here, it reduces the strain placed on muscles responsible for face mobility and causing wrinkles in the skin. As the muscles relax, the lines fade away for a fresher, younger appearance. VanderVeer Center applies Botox to address many areas of concern, including:

  • Lip flip
  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Chin dimples
  • Forehead creases
  • Gummy smiles
  • Neckbands
  • Perioral fine lines

Cosmetic Botox treatments typically start to show results within three to five days. The peak effect is seen about two weeks after the injection and, depending on the patient, may last three or even four months. Final results vary from person to person.

Botox for Therapeutic Purposes

Botox injections are also useful and effective in treating a range of medical conditions. By relaxing muscles and blocking pain signals, Botox is often able to bring relief for patients who suffer from conditions such as:

  • Chronic migraines: If you experience more than 15 migraines in a single month, Botox can relieve pressure and reduce your headache frequency.
  • Eye twitching: Excessive contractures around your eye may interfere with steady vision. Botox relaxes the muscles responsible to halt the twitching.
  • Excessive sweating: Those with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, may find relief from Botox injections to the armpits.
