BOTOX® (a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria) has been used safely by ophthalmologists for over 10 years. BOTOX® has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990’s with no serious side effects documented. Dr. Rick Rosen performs BOTOX® treatments for patients in Fairfield County, Norwalk, Westport, Weston, Darien, New Canaan, New Haven, Fairfield, Stamford, Greenwich, Bridgeport, and Westchester County.
BOTOX® injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet.
A protein toxin produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria, BOTOX® eliminates the facial wrinkles that occur with overuse of facial muscles.
A small amount of BOTOX® ® is injected right into the muscles that are responsible for creating wrinkles. BOTOX® effectively inactivates the muscles that produce wrinkles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically. It may take a few days to notice the wrinkle smoothing effect after receiving BOTOX® injections.
Some of the common areas treated include crow’s feet, frown lines, laugh lines, and forehead wrinkles.
A BOTOX® treatment is quick and results usually last three to six months. After that you may return for a follow-up injection. Some doctors report that after several treatments, the effect of BOTOX® appears to last longer, often up to several months.
The most common complication is a slight, temporary drooping of the eyelid. BOTOX® is used in extremely small amounts and does not spread throughout the body so you can return to full activity immediately.

BOTOX® ® can be used by almost anyone: patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding or who have a neurological disease should not use BOTOX®.
New uses for BOTOX® include reduction in sweating of hands and armpits and relief of headaches.
