What is a Botox treatment?

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin that temporarily paralysis muscles. Bo (Botulinum) tox (toxin) is used to remove wrinkles and fine lines on the same principle of muscle paralysis. This treatment is used for cosmetic purposes as well as to treat muscular disorders, migraines, excessive sweating and some bladder and bowel issues.

How does it work?

The neurotoxin is introduced through an injection, in carefully calculated amounts, into problematic area. It prevents correspondence between the treated muscle and the nervous system thus paralyzing it. When used for cosmetic purposes, it means that the muscle does not move in a way that causes wrinkles or fine lines. It is used in an incredibly diluted form and has no side effects. More 6 million botox treatments are done in a year.

Are there any health risks involved?

When people first find out that it is a toxin that works by paralyzing muscles, some level of caution and doubt is the natural reaction. However, the fact that it is used in such diluted form renders it completely safe. At most, what happens sometimes is that 1% of people develop antibodies that are resistant to the effects of botox and so any subsequent treatments are not effectual.
