Botox Cosmetic is an effective injectable used to smooth lines and wrinkles in the upper portion of the face caused by contraction of these muscles during frowning or squinting. Horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between the eyebrows, and crows’ feet around the eyes can all be significantly reduced by injecting small amounts of this substance into the underlying muscles.
Botox has also been proven to be an effective treatment for severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis, or severe underarm sweating. For patients who have exhausted their efforts using deodorants and anti-perspirants, Botox may be the perfect choice. In a clinical study, patients reported drier underarms for up to 201 days, or 6.7 months after using Botox.
Treatments take ten to twenty minutes and results can be expected in 3 to 5 days. The effect usually lasts 3 to 5 months, at which time further injections may be needed to maintain results.
