Botox® is a bacteria-derived protein that causes muscle paralysis.  This effect lasts for two to four months after injection into the muscle.  We use this treatment is used to alleviate spasms of the eyelid and the lower face and it is also a popular cosmetic treatment to decrease frown lines in the forehead and crow’s feet of the lower eyelids.  Treatment takes only a few minutes and the muscle weakening typically begins within 3 days, reaching full effect by 7 days.

If you have received Botox injections before for the treatments of blepharospasm or for cosmetic reasons please feel free to contact our office as we do offer this treatment here at Atlee Gleaton Eye Care.
