Botox is a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and it exerts its effects on the muscles by producing a temporary paralysis. Currently, it is the easiest and most popular technique for the prevention of wrinkles of the front, eye contours, and neck.
The process can be easily applied in office conditions using a pain relief cream. Injection must be performed inside the muscles by detection of the areas which are required for mimic movements. It is possible to return daily life activities as soon as the application. The results of the application appear within a few days following the application and continue for about four to six months. Regular injections yield longer and persistent results. Botox is also used for the treatment of hyperhidrosis in the armpits, hands, and feet. Botox applied on to these areas blocks the production of exudation. It is effective for about six to eight months, and it can be re-administered, when the effects are worn out. This application is very effective, and it makes the social life of an individual better.
