Originally developed to treat blepharospasm (excessive blinking), BOTOX© is one of the most commonly used medications for wrinkle reduction. It weakens the fine muscles around the eyes and forehead that are responsible for frown lines and deep wrinkles that occur in these areas. The treatment consists of multiple small injections in the sites to be addressed. The effects of the medication are apparent within days and results generally last 3-6 months, after which time, re-injection is necessary.
