What is Botox?

You may be surprised to know that Botox is a toxin. It is a food poisoning called botulism, which is very harmful to your health. But you can use this dangerous toxin in a minimum quantity to get an effective result. Along with reducing your skin wrinkles, Botox can treat other health issues too.


How does Botox work?

Botox injections tighten the weak muscles by reducing the wrinkles. It is very beneficial in treating "crow feet," fine lines, and wrinkles on the forehead. Eventually, the Botox toxin will make your skin firm and youthful.


Is there any side effect of using Botox injections?

Botox injections generally do not have any side effects. As we use the toxin in a minimal amount, there are no side effects of Botox injections. However, you may experience mild pain and swelling in your treatment area. In rare cases, you may experience droop eyelids and flu-like symptoms. But all of these symptoms are temporary. After a few days, you will become routine.


In most cases, Botox is safe. However, a pregnant woman should not avail the treatment. You must avoid the treatment if you are allergic to the toxin we use for treatment. But in all these cases, you must consult with your doctor as he can appropriately guide you.
