Botulinum toxin type A commonly referred to as Botox is an injectable compound that produces temporary muscular weakness. Botox is widely utilized by dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons as a means of reducing facial lines and wrinkles. In addition to its role in anti-aging therapy, Botox has proven effective in treating some of the side effects of facial paralysis (synkinesis, hemifacial spasm, blepharospasm).

Botox injection is a quick procedure that is performed in the office. The region above the overactive muscle is cleansed with alcohol and small volumes of Botox are injected with limited discomfort. Highly sensitive regions such as the eyelids can be treated with topical anesthetic cream prior to injection.
