Botox Injection (Botulinum Toxin)

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin type A,  referred to by its product name Botox®, is a popular non-surgical injection therapy that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick verticle bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. In addition, Botox restores a balance in the cases of unequal muscle action or inaction due to facial paralysis.

Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive perspiration and severe muscle spasms in the neck, shoulders, and eyes.
