Botox - Botulinum Toxin therapy for wrinkle reduction
Botox is a purified protein produced by Clostridium Botulinum bacteria which induces long term relaxation of contracted muscles. It was originally used to treat eye spasms and central nervous system disorders. Over activity of the facial expression muscles often results in the development of deep frown lines, forehead lines and/or crow's feet. Injecting botulinum toxin into the affected area temporarily paralyses the underlying muscles responsible for wrinkling, giving the face a more relaxed and pleasant appearance.
The initial effects of treatment become visible with 48 to 72 hours. The maximum effect is reached in about 1 to 2 weeks. Your facial expression will become more relaxed but by no means mask-like. The overall result is very natural. The effect of treatment generally lasts for 3 to 6 months. Re-treatment is then required.
