In recent years, botox has become incredibly popular for achieving a young looking complexion. Botox is regarded as safe and effective method in comparison to more invasive procedures, such as a face lift.

A purified complex protein (Botulinum toxin type A) formed from the clostridium botulinum bacterium is known as Botox. A simple cosmetic procedure, Botox, involves non-surgical removal of smooth bunny lines, forehead lines, frown lines and crow’s feet. The wrinkles caused by repeated muscular contractions are facial expressions, can be appropriately dealt with Botox. Botox for wrinkle treatment will not work effectively if the wrinkles are not a result of muscular contraction. In such cases, another effective treatment should be considered. The spasms in the muscle are abbreviated by injecting Botox, which blocks the transmission of neurotransmitters between the muscle fibers and nerve endings. Since Botox are administered through few tiny injections into the muscles which cause wrinkles rather than directly acting on the wrinkles, they are regarded as safe, effective and quick. Botox when injected, causes¬†localized¬†paralysis by weakening the muscles. Gradually, the wrinkles weaken when the muscles are prevented from contraction. Anti-wrinkle treatments which makes use of Botox, usually targets the areas which are more prone to fine lines and wrinkles such as nose, eyes, and mouth.

People suffering from excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be treated with Botox. The Botox injections applied at the affected regions prevent the nerve signals from approaching the sweat glands. Migraine treatment may also make use of Botox. The muscles at the forehead, back of the neck and the temples are injected with Botox to prevent the production of pain inducing signals. However, people with chronic migraines who shows no response to medications are only recommended to undergo this treatment.

Although, treatment results vary for every individual, but improvement are seen to last for about four months. For lasting results, topped-up injections are recommended. However, antibodies working against Botox are produced during excessive treatment, which causes reduced effectiveness. It should be noted that only a trained and qualified doctor or dentist should administer Botox.
