by the FDA, Botox is a purified protein form of the botulism toxin. For
decades, it was used to treat eye problems and reduce and soften moderate to
severe frown lines. Typically, it is used between the brows, along the sides of
eyes (crow's feet) and on the forehead. The procedure takes approximately 10
minutes and does not require anesthesia. You may return to work immediately.
Results are noticeable within days, with maximum effects seen in 7 to 10. Botox
relaxes the muscles for three months, after which another treatment is applied
to sustain the effects.
