This medication is used to treat certain eye disorders such as crossed eyes (strabismus) and uncontrolled blinking (blepharospasm), to treat certain muscle spasms or movement disorders (cervical dystonia, torticollis), and to reduce thecosmetic appearance of wrinkles. Botulinum toxin relaxes muscle by blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine.
Botulinum toxin is not a cure, and your symptoms will gradually return as the medication wears off.
This medication is given by injection by your eye care professional. It is injected into the affected muscles when treating eye disorders, muscle spasms and wrinkles.
Your dose, the number of injections, the site of injections, and how often you receive the medication will be determined by your condition and your response to therapy. Most people start to see an effect within a few days to 2 weeks, and the effect usually lasts 3 to 6 months.
Most insurance plans will not cover cosmetic BOTOX procedures.
