Botox - what is it?

Miss Cleo

I have been hearing a lot about the procedure botox. I am pretty sure it is not available in Jamaica, although the way things are, I could be wrong. What exactly is this procedure about? And how safe is it?

botox is the name of the product and it is applied with small injections to the skin to help erase wrinkle, as far as I know it makes the muscles underneath the skin to relax enough to make the wrinkles disappear, but they would get back when the effect pass in some months. I am almost sure that you have it in Jamaica because it is a very common procedure, just ask to some (qualified) plastic surgeon about it ;)

As botox is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin - in other words a toxin/poison (from the botulism family) that affects our nerves - I'm not comfortable having that bacteria injected under my skin.

Some of the common side effects of botox are:
allergic reactions,
neck or back pain,
difficulty swallowing,
shortness of breath,
flu symptoms,
dry mouth,
ringing in your ears,
increased sweating in areas other than the underarms,

This is one of the most effective procedures that preserve beauty and youth. The procedure reduces the secretion of sebum, eliminates sweating, and prevents wrinkles. Worth to see detailed instructions on how Botox/botulinum works from the supplier. In the place where I worked, Botox injections were performed, in general, everything went well.

Botox injections are noted primarily for the ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. They're also used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, and lazy eye. Botox injections may also help prevent chronic migraines. Botox injections use a toxin called onobotulinumtoxinA to temporarily prevent a muscle from moving. This toxin is produced by the microbe that causes botulism, a type of food poisoning. Botox was the first drug to use botulinum toxin. Other products now include abobotulinumtoxinA (Dysport), rimabotulinumtoxinB (Myobloc), and incobotulinumtoxinA (Xeomin). Each is a little different, particularly when it comes to dosage units, so they aren't interchangeable.

Botox is a drug that weakens or paralyzes muscle. In small doses, it can reduce skin wrinkles and help treat some medical conditions. But be careful and consult with a doctor before usage.

Botox is a drug doctors have been using for years to treat wrinkles and facial creases. Botox is a brand name of a toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. There are other brands, such as Dysport and Xeomin. Botox is the term you hear most often because it was the first injectable botulinum toxin.
