The use of BOTOX® to treat wrinkles around the eyes and face is becoming increasingly popular. BOTOX® is an injectable drug that paralyzes muscles in the area of the injection. Small muscles under the skin cause many of the wrinkles found on the face. If these small muscles are paralyzed, then the wrinkles disappear.

BOTOX® is an effective and temporary treatment for wrinkles. The effect of the drug will usually last for 3-6 months. Every individual will have a slightly different response to the BOTOX®. Not every wrinkle is going to improve with BOTOX® alone. In some cases a filler is injected under the skin to help improve the wrinkles.

Dr. Long has been injecting patients with BOTOX® for over 20 years. This drug was initially used to treat patients with blepharospasm. The FDA released BOTOX® in 2002 for the treatment of wrinkles on the face. For the last 6 years many physicians have begun offering BOTOX® to their patients for the treatment of wrinkles. There are few doctors in Alabama who have more experience with this medication than Dr. Long.
