Anti-Wrinkle Injections also know as (Botox) is an agent that numbs the muscles, it relaxes the muscles.
This helps the aging process by releaxing the muscle which in turn helps with fine lines on the face.

- Common Side Effects:
- Numbness or dysesthesia
- Vasovagal episode or loss of consciousness.
Incomplete Block: It is possible to not experience a complete block of desired muscles. Additional injections to reach the desired level of block can be performed until the goal is achieved.
Asymmetry: The human face and eyelid region is normally asymmetrical with respect to structural anatomy and function. There can be a variation from one side to the other in terms of the response to BOTOX injections.
Drooping Eyelid (Ptosis): Muscles that raise the eyelid may be affected by BOTOX, should this material migrate downward from other injection areas.
Pain: Discomfort associated with BOTOX injections is usually of short duration.
Migration of BOTOX: BOTOX may migrate from its original injection site to other areas and produce temporary paralysis of other muscle groups or other unintended effects. BOTOX has been reported to cause swallowing problems in patients treated for spastic muscle disorders of the cervical region (cervical dystonia).
Bleeding and Bruising: It is possible, though unusual, to have a bleeding episode from a BOTOX injection. Bruising in soft tissues may occur. Serious bleeding around the eyeball during deeper BOTOX injections for crossed eyes (strabismus) has occurred. Should you develop post-injection bleeding, it may require emergency treatment or surgery. Aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, platelet inhibitors, anticoagulants, Vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, and other “herbs / homeopathic remedies” may contribute to a greater risk of a bleeding problem. Do not take these for ten days before or after BOTOX injections.
Damage to Deeper Structures: Deeper structures such as nerves, blood vessels, and the eyeball may be damaged during the course of injection. Injury to deeper structures may be temporary or permanent.
Corneal Exposure Problems: Some patients experience difficulties closing their eyelids after BOTOX injections and problems may occur in the cornea due to dryness. Should this rare complication occur, additional treatments, protective eye drops, contact lenses, or surgery may be necessary.
Unknown Risks: The long-term effect of BOTOX on tissue is unknown. The risk and consequences of accidental intravascular injection of BOTOX is unknown and not predictable. There is the possibility that additional risk factors may be discovered.
Dry Eye Problems: Individuals who normally have dry eyes may be advised to use special caution in considering BOTOX injections around the eyelid region.
Double-Vision: Double-vision may be produced if the BOTOX material migrates into the region of muscles that control movements of the eyeball.
Eyelid Ectropion: Abnormal looseness of the lower eyelid can occur following BOTOX injections.
Other Eye Disorders: Functional and irritative disorders of eye structures may rarely occur following BOTOX injections.
Blindness: Blindness is extremely rare after BOTOX injections. However, it can be caused by internal bleeding around the eyeball or needle stick injury. The occurrence of eye problems appears to be very rare.
Allergic Reactions: As with all biologic products, allergic and systemic anaphylactic reactions may occur. Allergic reactions may require additional treatment.
Antibodies to BOTOX: Presence of antibodies to BOTOX may reduce the effectiveness of this material in subsequent injections. The health significance of antibodies to BOTOX is unknown.
Infection: Infection is extremely rare after BOTOX injections. Should an infection occur, additional treatment including antibiotics may be necessary.
Skin Disorders: Skin rash, itching, and swelling may rarely occur following BOTOX injection.
Neuromuscular Disorders: Patients with peripheral motor neuropathic disorders (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, myasthenia gravis, motor neuropathies) may be at greater risk of clinically significant side effects from BOTOX.
Migraine Headache Disorders: BOTOX has been used to treat forehead muscle groups that are involved with the migraine headache condition. Patients are advised that results of BOTOX treatments for migraine headaches may be variable and improvement in this disorder may not occur following BOTOX treatments.
Unsatisfactory Result: There is the possibility of a poor or inadequate response from BOTOX injections. Additional BOTOX injections may be necessary. Surgical procedures or treatments may be needed to improve skin wrinkles including those caused by muscle activity.
Long-Term Effects: Subsequent alterations in face and eyelid appearance may occur as the result of aging, weight loss, weight gain, sun exposure, pregnancy, menopause, or other circumstances not related to BOTOX injections. BOTOX injections do not arrest the aging process or produce permanent tightening of the eyelid region. Future surgery or other treatments may be necessary.
Pregnancy and Nursing Mothers: Animal reproduction studies have not been performed to determine if BOTOX could produce fatal harm. It is not known if BOTOX can be excreted in human milk. It is not recommended that pregnant women or nursing mothers receive BOTOX treatments.
Drug Interactions: The effect of BOTOX may be potentiated by aminoglycoside antibiotics or other drugs known to interfere with neuromuscular transmission.
Female Patient Information: If you are taking birth control pills, or estragon replacement it is advised not to have this procedure done as many medications including antibiotics may neutralize the preventive effect of birth control pills, allowing for conception and pregnancy.
Sun Exposure – Direct or Tanning Salon: The effects of the sun are damaging to the skin. Exposing the treated areas to sun may result in increased scarring, colour changes, and poor healing. Patients who tan, either outdoors or in a salon, should inform their practitioner and either delay treatment, or avoid tanning until your practitioner says it is safe to resume. The damaging effect of sun exposure occurs even with the use sun block or clothing coverage.
Medications and Herbal Dietary Supplements: There are potential adverse reactions that occur as the result of taking over-the-counter, herbal, and/or prescription medications. Aspirin and medications that contain aspirin interfere with clotting and can cause more bleeding. If you take such medication to keep you alive it is advised to speak with you GP before proceeding with this procedure.
