Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments around. This cosmetic injectable is a neurotoxin derived from an organism found in nature called ‘Clostridium Botulinum’. Botox is used cosmetically to remove fine lines and wrinkles from the face by paralyzing the facial muscles temporarily.
Usually Botox is used to eradicate forehead lines, frown wrinkles and crow’s feet caused by age. It is one of the first non-surgical based treatments that deal with eliminating the signs of age. Botox can block the signal sent from the nerves to the muscles, leading to the injected muscle not being able to contract. This in turn results in the wrinkles softening and relaxing.
Botox is an injection and not an elaborate surgery, so there is no need for an anesthetic. The solution is simply injected into the specific muscles directly. A numbing gel maybe used in the area to avert any form of discomfort. A narrow gauge micro needle is used to inject the Botox into the specific facial muscles.
The injected areas are usually between the brows, the forehead and the outer area of both the eyes. Once the procedure is complete, you will be advised against rubbing or massaging the area for a day. This way, the neurotoxin will not move to any area under the skin where it was not intended to be. The procedure is an FDA approved process.
Benefits of Botox
The first and the most important benefit of Botox is essentially the effect it has on your skin. Your skin will be smooth and free from the telltale signs of aging and tiredness. Your skin will be supple, smooth, and wrinkle free. It is a non-surgical solution to a problem that plagues all people after a certain age.
Botox can also be used as an alternative health treatment. It is known to have beneficial effects on migraines. Patients who have undergone the treatment have come back and spoken about the reduction in their pain from migraines. Botox is also a cost-effective procedure.

The results are, however, tremendous and impressive which makes it worth every penny.
Botox is a non-surgical, minimally invasive, stress-free, and cost-effective way to achieve a desired level of youthfulness and tightness in the skin.
