Have unwanted frown lines and/or wrinkles? Excessive sweating? Those seem to never end Migraines? Botox® injections may be right for you!
Botox® is a highly purified preparation of botulinum toxin A, a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox® is injected, in very small amounts, into specific muscles, as a treatment. It acts by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles and so paralyzes (relaxes) the muscles. Botox® treatment has found a growing number of uses from easing muscle spasms (as, for example, in spastic cerebral palsy) to its increasingly widespread cosmetic use in flattening wrinkles.
Excessive sweating? Botox® Injections can also be used on your underarms every 6-9 months. 100 Units are needed for both underarms.
