    Botox and its Application in Ophthalmology

    14 August, 2023

    Botox – also known scientifically as Botulinum Toxin A, is a protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum that has a local inhibitory effect on the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. In other words, the drug inhibits muscle contraction. For over ten years, Botulinum Toxin A has been used by neurologists to treat facial and neck spasms. Ophthalmologists use Botulinum Toxin A to treat blepharospasm, hemifacial twitching, strabismus, and double vision. One of the cosmetic applications, the drug is used to remove facial wrinkles such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, frown lines, etc. The effect of smoothing wrinkles is due to the temporary paralysis of the muscles attached to the skin under the wrinkles.

    Botox and its Application in Ophthalmology

    Impacts from the environment, living habits, and the aging process are the main factors that cause the face to show signs of aging, especially wrinkles around the eyes. Rejuvenating the eye area with Botulinum Toxin A is considered by experts to be a quick and effective solution. Eye cosmetic application by Botulinum Toxin A is a simple technique; the doctor will use a suitable dose and inject it into the wrinkle area. The procedure only takes about 5-10 minutes, after which the patient can go home and resume normal activities without any rest or abstention. Treatment with Botulinum toxin A will bring optimal results within one week after injection; the effect can last 4-6 months.

    Botox will be safe and not harmful if injected at the correct dose, place, and with the proper technique. Therefore, if a patient is considering using Botulinum Toxin A to treat intraocular conditions or address signs of aging around the eyes, it is essential to consult with a physician first. The doctor has the experience and expertise to give the appropriate regimen and is monitored throughout the treatment.
