What is Botox®?
BOTOX® is the commercial trade name for Botulinum Toxin Type A. Botulinum Toxin is derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. When injected into muscles, Botulinum Toxin has a local effect. It blocks transmission between the nerve endings and muscle fibers around the injection site to cause weakness of the nearby muscle.
What is Botox® used for?
Botox® is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines. It is typically used in people aged 18 to 65. Botox® works by blocking nerve transmission to temporarily reduce the contractions of the facial muscles that cause frown lines. It has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles, and Botox® injections are becoming increasingly popular.
Who can have Botox® treatment?
Your doctor will decide if you can have cosmetic treatment with Botox®. Before starting treatment, tell your doctor if you have any disorders that affect your nerves and muscles, if you are breastfeeding, or if you are planning to become pregnant soon.
