What is Botox®?Hamilton & Burlington Botox Treatments
Botox® is a medication that is used to relax specific muscles. It is a purified form of botulinum toxin that has been approved for a number of different medical uses, including treating certain types of muscle spasms and for cosmetic treatment of facial wrinkles.

Who is a candidate for Botox®?
Botox® is most commonly used to treat frown lines between the eyebrows, forehead lines, and "crow's feet". It can also be used for wrinkles at the base of the nose ("bunny lines") and for some wrinkles around the mouth and neck.

How are Botox® injections performed?
Tiny amounts of Botox® are injected into the specific muscles that cause frown lines and other wrinkles. It can be done in Dr. Hynes' office and only takes a few minutes.

Although there can occasionally be some minor bruising or swelling, you can return to your normal activities immediately. Botox® normally takes a few days to work and lasts for 3 to 6 months. People who have repeated injections may notice that the effect lasts longer with subsequent injections.

What are the risks?

There are very few risks associated with Botox® injections and most are quite minor. Transient headache and numbness of the forehead may occur after injection. Bruising and swelling may also result, but these normally last for only a day or two. Temporary drooping of the eyelids has been reported, but in less than 3-5% of injections. Botox® injections are not recommended if you are pregnant or have any neurological diseases.
