Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. It is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin that is produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum.
Just before the actual treatment, the area will be cleaned.
Botulinum toxin is administered by diluting the powder in saline and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue.
It takes 24-72 hours for botulinum toxin to take effect.
In very rare circumstances, it may take as long as 5 days for the full effect of botulinum toxin to be observed.
Botulinum toxin should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, or by people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.
You will be able to go back to your normal activities right after treatment.
