Botulinum toxin more commonly known as Botox is a drug being used for cosmetic purposes, which was first used to manage squinting of eyes. It is being used to manage different types of squints, particularly beneficial in paralytic cases where double vision is quite troublesome. Botox injection is a 5 minutes procedure done in Outpatient clinic under topical anesthesia. Some patients may have discomfort. There are minimal side effects if any, and are temporary. Botox starts working within 3-7 days. The effect of the injection lasts for 4-6 months and then has to be repeated.
We also administer botox in our clinic for conditions like Essential Blepharosapam, forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet etc.
