Botox is a new therapy being used for wrinkles of the brows and around the eyes. It is made from same toxin which causes botulism poisoning, but is used in much lower doses. Botox has been used successfully for years for treating wrinkles around the eyes. It has recently been applied for costmetic uses. Injection results in temporary paralysis of the injected muscles for apporximately 3 to 6 months. It is usually used for frown lines and crows foot lines. But it has no effect on longstanding established wrinkles where the skin has been deeply creased.
