What Is Botulinum Toxin?
Botulinum Toxin, or Botox, is an injectable substance that acts as a muscle relaxant in certain areas of your body. While it can be introduced to various parts of the human anatomy, it is used mainly on the face to smooth wrinkles and frown lines around the eyes (crow’s feet), nose ("11" lines and bunny lines), and mouth ("smoker" lines). Many patients who are starting to show signs of aging rely on Botox to give them a more youthful appearance. Botulinum toxin can also be used as a very effective migraine treatment or for excessive sweating in the underarms.
Isn’t Botulinum Toxin Dangerous?
Though called a toxin, when taken in the appropriate dosage, Botulinum Toxin is not harmful to humans. There are three common-name types of Botulinum Toxin: Dysport, Xeomin and, of course, the most popular option, Botox. All are FDA-approved and trusted by cosmetic personnel and physicians across the globe.
What Are the Benefits of a Botox Treatment?
In small, carefully-administered doses, Botox injections can be very beneficial in helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and not just for women. An increasing number of men are relying on this injection to help keep them looking young. In addition, once patients achieve the look that they want, their mood and self-confidence may become elevated as a result.
