Botox injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.
They are also used to treat such problems as repetitive neck spasms (cervical dystonia),
excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), overactive bladder and lazy eye.
Botox injections may also help prevent chronic migraines in some people.
Botulinum toxin injections block certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract. The most common use of these injections is to temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles, such as:
Frown lines, or “11” lines between the eyebrows
Crow's-feet, the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes
Bunny lines on the sides of the nose
Lips that droop down at the outer corners
