What is Botox®?

Botox® is FDA approved in the United States for cosmetic injectable treatments. By using very small doses of Botox® injected directly into a specific facial muscle, the action of that muscle will be relaxed. Therefore, the problem that muscle causes, like a twitch, spasm or frown line, will be stopped.

The frown line between the eyebrows is caused by the action of a muscle called the corrugator. You can feel this thickening just below the inside of your eyebrows when you purposefully make yourself frown. Injecting Botox® directly into this corrugator muscle stops your ability to draw your eyebrows together when you frown. Once the muscle is treated, it cannot contract, and the frown line gradually fades away. Cosmetic surgeons use Botox® injections for the treatment of crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, lip lines, and neck folds.

Botox® injections for Eyebrow Elevation: An exciting new use of Botox® is for the aesthetic arching or flaring of the eyebrows in women. By placing Botox® in specific sites along the eyebrows, a pleasant elevation, arching or flaring of the eyebrows can be achieved, depending on the patient’s preference. Like other treatment areas, the effects of Botox® injections will be temporary and will need to be repeated every few months.

What to expect after your Botox® treatment?

A treatment with Dr. Michalak takes only a few minutes and the Botox® injections take effect in three to four days. Gradually the results will fade over three to five months and the muscle action will return. When the frown line starts to reappear, a simple repeat treatment with Dr. Michalak is all that is necessary to maintain the desired result. The side effects of Botox® are related to the local injection of the solution. There will be a slight discomfort from the tiny needle entering the skin, and a small chance of a bruise at the site of the injection. There are no reports of damage to the eye, with injections to the eyelid.
