What is Botox®?
Botox® (botulinum toxin) is a substance extracted from a microorganism called clostridium botulinum. The effect botox has on the muscles/nerves is known as chemical denervation. This effect leads to the relaxation of the injected muscle, which can lead to various effects depending on the purpose of its use.
What can Botox® be Used for?
Amongst its various uses, the most popular are:
A reduction in the appearance of facial wrinkles: Botox® has a marked effect in reducing the appearance of frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. It does this by relaxing the muscles on the forehead leading to a reduced pull on the overlying skin.
Treatment of excessive sweating in the arm pits as well as the hands and feet: This is achieved through the effect that Botox® has on the nerves supplying the sweat glands, which results in reduced activity and therefore reduced sweating.
