How Botox Works and Why It is So Effective

Botox is the number one injectable non-surgical procedure. It is simple with no recovery or downtime. It is not invasive like surgery. It is a neurotoxin that is injected into various areas of the face like between the eyebrows, lines on your forehead and around your eyes. It paralyzes the muscles and relaxes them, allowing the wrinkles to smooth out and fill in for a younger, fresher appearance.

Botox has other uses as well in addition to the face. For example, Botox can be injected under the armpits as well for excessive sweating. Botox can treat a condition called hyperhidrosis. It is popular for those individuals who struggle with overactive sweat glands and perspiration. This can be extremely beneficial and calming in the summer months.
