Facial wrinkles can be broken up into two categories: Static Wrinkles and Dynamic Wrinkles. Static wrinkles are visible when your face is at rest; these occur naturally as we age due to loss of elasticity. Static wrinkles are best treated by use of dermal fillers. Dynamic wrinkles appear when the muscles of the face are in movement, when we smile, laugh, scowl, etc. The most common areas to find dynamic wrinkles are on the forehead and between the brows.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple and non-surgical treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA.
One 10-minute treatment-a few tiny injections-and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a chemical made from Botulism toxin that temporarily paralyzes the muscles of expression. This blocks the transmission of a nerve impulse into the muscle. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.
There's only one BOTOX® Cosmetic. Talk to your physician to see if this procedure is right for you.

How BOTOX® Works
To treat blepharospasm, BOTOX® therapy helps block signals from the nerves that tell the muscles that control the affected areas to contract. This helps reduce eye muscle spasms.1Patients often begin seeing an improvement in symptoms within the first 3 days, with maximum results about 1 to 2 weeks after injection.1
Montgomery Eye offers BOTOX® therapy treatments at our Zelda and Sturbridge offices. If you are having uncontrolled eyelid spasms, please call 334-271-3804 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Tom Lyle Mitchell or Dr. In C. Shin. Our skilled physicians will work with you to determine the best solution.
