Botox has also been known to reduce migraines, too much sweating and contractions of the muscles in the neck and the eye areas. With the use of Botox, the results will become visible in about 5 days and will be at its peak after 2 weeks. The results will last for about 3 months, and this is why you should repeat the procedure after every 3 to 4 months.
