Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Forehead, eye wrinkles Q. I want to have Botox in my frown mark between my eyes. Are there any risks if I have it with having ​Multiple Sclerosis? Are there any risks involved in having a filler in either side of my lips where my lips have dropped in time/age? A. I hope you are doing well with your MS! ​ ​Botox blocks the chemical signal from the end of the nerve to contract the attached muscle. ​ ​Multiple Sclerosis is a auto-immune disease where the body attacks and injures the covering of the nerves axon interrupting the signal transmission to the muscle it affects. ​ ​Botox Cosmetic is used to relax a very small number of muscle fibers to achieve a rebalancing of the pull on the skin causing wrinkles. If it affects the same muscles that MS affects, a complementary action such as double vision could occur. This would be exceedingly rare particularly if performed by a well experienced, Board Certified Injector. You may wish to have your neurologist discuss your particular desires with your injector, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or ENT Facial Surgeon. ​ ​Fillers are not known to have any similar effect on patients with MS. Both Botox and Fillers are used for MS patients in my practice. ​ ​I hope this is helpful. All the best!
