Botox is used medically to treat certain muscle conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. Botox is used to treat excessive sweating, migraines and some bladder and bowel disorders.
Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Botox is predominantly used as a treatment to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox procedure is a relatively simple procedure that uses a fine needle to inject tiny amounts of the solution into specific muscles of the face. This solution temporarily immobilizes the targeted muscles, preventing them from causing wrinkles on skin’s surface. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes and discomfort is minimal.
