The most popular cosmetic procedure for the past several years, Botox has provided millions of men and women relief from deep facial creases and wrinkles. Because of its widespread use, it’s easy to forget that a Botox injection is a medical treatment that must be administered carefully and correctly by a licensed medical professional who understands the underlying facial muscle structure and the amount of Botox needed to achieve results.
Botox is a purified protein derived from Clostridium botulinum which reduces activity when injected into muscles. It’s been well tested in clinical trials and is FDA approved to treat certain medical conditions and to relax the deep creases between the eyebrows. But it is a potent muscle relaxant that can be dangerous if it is not mixed properly and injected at the proper dose into the correct muscle.
