Your skin needs to be clean and free of dirt, cosmetics, or moisturizers before your botox treatment.
This is injection of botulinum toxin A (BOTOX is the name of one brand of botulinum toxin) into overacting muscles which cause deep activity lines on the face, especially the forehead and around the eyes, such as the vertical frown lines, forehead lines and smile lines around the eyes (crow's feet) and lines around the mouth. They are used for facial contouring and also to treat facial spasms. Injections are almost painless as fine needles are used and an anesthetic cream is applied before the procedure. They are given in the out patient clinic.
