Risks & side effects of Botox
What is Botox?
Botox Cosmetic is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Botox injections block signals from the nerves to the muscle causing the muscle to no longer contract as forcefully which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
The FDA approved such usage in the late1980s when it was discovered that Botox could stop ailments such as uncontrolled blinking and lazy eye. Cosmetic physicians have been using Botox for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is an approved treatment for frown lines on the forehead, crow’s feet (lines around the eye), and axillary hyperhidrosis (increased sweating of the armpits).
Botox works by injecting the muscle, so it no longer contracts as forcefully, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
