Botox® is the brand name of the bacterium clostridium botulinum which is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox® can also be used to treat other conditions, for example, hyperhidrosis, commonly known as severe sweating, chronic migraines, cervical dystonia, a neurological disorder that causes shoulder and neck muscle spasms.
It can also help with eye issues, such as uncontrollable blinking and eyes that point in different directions.
Botox® is injected into the muscles around the eyes and forehead, which blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles, which causes them to soften and relax, reducing any sight of wrinkles.
While Botox® is often considered similar to dermal fillers, there is a big difference, as they use different active ingredients and are used on different parts of the face.
Benefits of Botox®
Botox® has been used for decades as a way to treat fine lines and wrinkles, but they are beneficial for the modern person who needs to get treatment quickly and get back to their lives!
Botox® is Non-Surgical
In comparison to surgical procedures, Botox® is a relatively quick injection into the relevant areas and takes a matter of minutes. Because it is a non-invasive procedure and patients don’t need any form of anesthetic, discomfort is minimal, which means the patient can get back to their routine in a really short space of time.
