What is Botox injections?
Botox stands for Botulinum Toxin type A which is a toxic chemical produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria.

When these toxins are inadvertently consumed by humans it can damage the nervous system, arise muscle paralysis and even death
How can Botox be useful to the world of beauty?
At small doses, Botox is able to relax muscles in this facial muscle. Botox is able to relax the small muscles that cause these lines of expression, resulting in a smoother and less wrinkled skin surface. Another advantage is that Botox works in specific areas. Other muscles such as those used to raise the eyebrows are not affected so normal expression can still be performed. Botox will not stiffen your facial expression. Botox will only smooth and work where you want. Botox can be used to:
*Eliminate the frown line between the eyebrows
*Eliminate wrinkles on the forehead
*Eliminate the smile line around the tip of the eye
*Eliminates wrinkles on the face and neck
*Overcoming excessive sweat on the armpits, palms and feet
How long is the injection process?
Injections only take 10-20 minutes on the area you want to remove wrinkles. Botox works effectively and efficiently so it can be directly absorbed and seen the results after 2 hours. However the new maximum results will be achieved 2-5 days later and can last more or less for 3-6 months. Botox is now widely used because of its practicality. Simply inject a Botox solution to some of the facial points you want to treat with the help of a superficent needle syringe. The injection process is not too painful just like being bitten by Ants
Are there any side effects?

Botox has been recognized by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and more than 60 countries have authorized the use of Botox for health and beauty.
