BOTOX

Botox is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions, and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles.

 

It is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment, with more than 6 million Botox treatments administered each year.

People also use Botox to treat excessive sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, and some bladder and bowel disorders.

 

Botulinum toxin is currently used to treat over 20 different medical conditions, with more applications under investigation.

 

 

 

How is the botox procedure performed?

 

Botulinum toxin is administered by diluting the powder in saline and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue. It takes 24-72 hours for botulinum toxin to take effect. In very rare circumstances, it may take as long as 5 days for the full effect of botulinum toxin to be observed.

 

Botulinum toxin should not be used in pregnant or lactating women, or by people who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug or any of its ingredients.

Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. Normally, the body produces sweat to regulate body temperature. Sometimes, the nerves that control the sweat glands become overactive and excess sweat is produced. It can have a significant impact on self-confidence and can affect your quality of life. Botox blocks the communication between nerves and sweat glands.

 

The underarms, palms, soles, scalp and forehead, and groin may be treated with Botox. In fact, pretty much any area with excessive sweating responds to treatment.
