What Is Botox?

The Quick Dirty

Botox injections (or Botulinum Toxin) is one of the most popular non-surgical treatments offered by dermatologists around the world, thanks to its quick effects, minimal downtime and overall safety. 

Botox was originally used by doctors to treat muscle spasms but it was found that it also temporarily paralyzed muscles to reduce wrinkles around the eyes. Botox is a purified form of botulinum toxin that can be injected into muscles to weaken them. 

It’s most commonly used in the treatment of muscular disorders like cerebral palsy or spasmodic dysphonia, but it’s also been shown to have some amazing effects on skin aging. By reducing wrinkles and restoring elasticity, Botox can give you back a youthful glow that lasts up to four months!

If you’re thinking about getting Botox injections for cosmetic purposes, there are a few things you should know before making your decision.

 First off, make sure that you’re in good health overall—if you have any underlying health conditions or take any medications (including supplements) that might interact with Botox, it’s best to let your provider know before proceeding with treatment. Secondly, keep in mind that results vary depending on each person’s skin type and condition; some people see dramatic results after just one treatment while others require several treatments over time for optimal results. Lastly, know that although this procedure is considered safe when done by an experienced professional under sterile conditions, there are always risks associated with any medical procedure so if you have any concerns please talk to your provider first before making any decisions!
