How It Works
BOTOX is a purified protein that treats dynamic wrinkles, which form with the repeated contractions of facial muscles. When a very small amount is injected into the muscle responsible for a wrinkle, BOTOX temporarily prevents the muscle from contracting, allowing the wrinkle to smooth out. These treatments are often combined with dermal filler injections because they work in different ways and address different concerns. Fillers treat wrinkles, folds, and sunken areas of the face by replacing lost volume.
Benefits of BOTOX
This effective, FDA-approved treatment provides a variety of benefits depending on where it’s injected. Most commonly, Dr. Mukerji uses BOTOX to treat:
- Lines at the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet)
- Horizontal forehead creases
- Vertical lines between the eyebrows (11s)
- Slightly sagging brows
Younger patients can use BOTOX proactively to keep dynamic wrinkles from forming.

BOTOX for Hyperhidrosis
In addition to being used as a wrinkle treatment, BOTOX can control excessive sweating caused by hyperhidrosis. When injected into the underarms, palms, or feet, BOTOX prevents the sweat glands from being stimulated, which stops or significantly reduces perspiration within about 4 weeks. Results are temporary, so treatments should be repeated approximately every 6 months.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
Before your BOTOX treatment, Dr. Mukerji will have an initial consultation with you for 15 to 20 minutes to discuss your goals, treatment options, and the risks and benefits. If BOTOX is right for you, he will make several carefully placed injections into your face with a tiny needle. For most patients, discomfort is minimal. Injection points may be slightly raised and pink initially. There is no downtime needed, so you can return to work and your regular routine right away.
BOTOX allows treated areas to gradually smooth out within approximately 3 to 5 days after injection. Because results are temporary, you will need to have repeat treatments every 4 to 6 months to maintain your smooth look.
