How BOTOX® injection works

BOTOX® works by temporarily relaxing overactive or spastic (contracting) muscles. BOTOX® can also block signals to the sweat glands thus reducing excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), and can also block the release of chemicals in the brain associated with the cause of pain (chronic migraine). When injected into the bladder wall, BOTOX® works on the bladder muscle to prevent leakage of urine (urinary incontinence).

It is used to treat medical conditions associated with overactive muscles:

  • causing excessive eyelid blinking (blepharospasm) in patients twelve years and over
  • of the face (hemifacial spasm and VIIth nerve disorders) in patients twelve years and over
  • causing ‘lazy eye’ or squint (strabismus) in patients twelve years and over
  • in the throat, causing a strained, strangled sounding voice or breathy voice with voice loss (spasmodic dysphonia)
  • causing the head to be in an unusual posture or pain in the neck associated with twisting of the head (cervical dystonia)
  • in children aged two years and older, causing altered and unnatural position or movements in the hand and arm as well as legs, including those muscles that cause abnormal ankle position and walking gait (juvenile cerebral palsy)
  • in adults, causing focal spasticity in the hands, arms or legs (adult focal spasticity).

BOTOX® is also used:

  • to treat overactive bladder in adults with leakage of urine (urinary incontinence), the sudden urge to empty your bladder and needing to go to the toilet more than usual when another drug (called an anticholinergic) did not help. BOTOX® has been shown to markedly reduce leakage of urine and improve the quality of life of patients suffering from leakage of urine due to overactive bladder.
  • to treat leakage of urine (urinary incontinence) in adults with overactive bladder due to neurologic disease. BOTOX® has been shown to reduce leakage of urine and improve the quality of life of patients suffering from leakage of urine due to neurogenic bladder.
  • to treat headaches occurring in adults with chronic migraine
  • to treat excessive sweating from the armpit area
  • to improve the look of vertical frown lines that appear between the eyebrows, lines around the eyes and on the forehead in adults.

Do you give 100% guarantee?

No doctor can give 100% guarantee that the treatment or surgery would be beneficial for the patient. For that matter, no guarantee is given by any doctor or surgeon that the patient would be "cured".

Anyone considering a cosmetic procedure should ensure they are informed enough to understand the limitations and risks of any procedure. Remember, no procedure is 100% risk free and no surgeon can give a 100% guarantee of the results.

The only assurance which a doctor can give or can be understood to have given by implication is that he is possessed of the requisite skill in that branch of profession which he is practicing and while undertaking the performance of the task entrusted to him he would be exercising his skill with reasonable competence.

Unless the circumstances are exceptional, it is advisable to avoid surgery if you have recently experienced major life events such as moving house, changing job, losing a loved one, the break-up of a relationship or the arrival of children. Undergoing cosmetic surgery results in emotional changes as well as physical ones, so it’s wise to choose a time when there aren’t other stressful events going on in your life.

How many sessions do I require?

The healthier your skin/hair are when starting out, the easier it will take the treatment. The sessions must be spaced to allow adequate healing in between. Skin/Hair that are healthy enough to regenerate fairly quickly will be able to endure more sessions of a treatment in a shorter period of time.

While these aren’t the only factors involved, they are the most common. Don’t be surprised, however, if your doctor mentions another situation that could impact the length and/or number of sessions you may require. Every person is different, and your circumstances will be unique only to YOU.
