What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX is extremely versatile and can address a wide array of aesthetic and medical issues. BOTOX is made from a botulinum toxin that paralyzes muscle movement, which can create a more youthful appearance or nonsurgically treat muscle or nerve disorders. BOTOX is most often used cosmetically, but it can also be used to treat eye health concerns like strabismus (misalignment of the eyes), blepharospasm (eye twitching), epiphora (extreme and excessive tearing), and ptosis (drooping eyelids). Our team at West County Ophthalmology uses BOTOX to treat ocular conditions and improve the appearance of the eyes. If you are interested in learning how BOTOX can help you address your vision concerns, then contact one of our centers in Chesterfield or O'Fallon, MO.

How does BOTOX treatment work?

During a consultation, we will determine the ideal area to which the treatment should be administered and the amount needed. From there, BOTOX will be injected into the treatment area with a fine-gauge needle. You may experience some tenderness or swelling at the injection site. You should be free to return to your normal routine immediately after your BOTOX injection. If you experience more severe symptoms, such as an allergic reaction, please contact our office immediately. Results from your BOTOX treatment will typically last 3 – 4 months. BOTOX is not considered suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

A youthful look for your eyes
