A simple injection softens lines for 3-6 months and can be repeated as often as needed to maintain the effect. Slight bruising or temporary headache may occur following injection. Injectable botulinum toxin has an excellent safety record. Botox can also be used for control of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the armpits, palms or soles. Twice yearly injections are generally required to maintain dryness.
