The proprietary brand name of the medicinal product and also a well-known name of the most common therapy used in aesthetic medicine for the treatment of facial wrinkles.
Before the era of aesthetic treatments, botox was widely used (and still is) in the treatment of neurological and ophthalmologic disorders even in young children, which confirms the high profile of its safety in the hands of an experienced physician.
By using Botox you can also raise falling eyebrows, drooping corners of the mouth, shallow wrinkles on the neck and treat diaphoresis of armpits, hands and feet.
Chemically, Botox is botulinum toxin (botulinum toxin type A). However, it is obtainable by genetic engineering, and its use in medicine has been more than 40 years.
The procedure itself involves making several punctures and introducing a small, well-defined amount of botulinum toxin. The effect appears after about 7-10 days and lasts for about half a year. “Addiction to botox”, that is sometime reported is nothing other than admiration for the simplicity and the effect of treatment that is absolutely incomparable with the use of even very expensive cosmetics.
