Botox is a highly purified protein that is used in minute amounts for producing paralysis of muscles. It works by temporarily blocking the nerve impulses that control muscle movement and restricts your ability to contract your facial muscles. It has been increasingly being used for cosmetic purposes to paralyze facial muscles as a means of concealing wrinkles.

Botox has claimed to work well on forehead lines. When is skillfully injected, it will have the same effect as a brow lift. Botox also commonly help to treat areas such as frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, mild eyebrow droop, neck bands, lines around the eyes and marionette lines.

Botox can also be used to treat excessive underarm or palm perspiration.

One of the big problems with Botox is that anyone with a medical license can inject it. A specific kind of skill is required for anyone claiming to know how to use it. If too much Botox is injected, it can cause your brows to drop, your skin artificially smooth or looking weird.

Botox cannot be used to enlarge lips and replace lost volume. It also cannot help to treat sagging in the cheeks or the nasolabial fold.

Treatment is usually conducted without anaesthesia. Recovery time is negligible and results will appear within seven days and may last up to six months. It is not permanent, so they gradually wear off.

Cost : About $200 to $1500 per session, depending on the area treated, which could be forehead furrows and crow’s feet.

Results : Redness may occur at needle marks. Wrinkles will disappear within three days. Fresh injections are needed every six months.
