Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxin protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is one of the most poisonous naturally occurring substances in the world, and it is the most toxic protein.
Though it is highly toxic, it is used in minute doses both to treat painful muscle spasms, and as a cosmetic treatment (Beauty treatment) in some parts of the world.

How Botox Works
Botox combats wrinkles that are created when nerve cells within the muscles beneath the skin release a chemical called acetylcholine. This chemical triggers a muscle contraction that creates wrinkles. The Botox product, medically known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, is an injectable compound that disrupts the release of acetylcholine, which essentially paralyzes the muscle and stops the contraction. Results are fully evident within one week after treatment and remain for a minimum of three months.

Improved facial expressions
If deep expression lines make one look older than what one feels, treatment with Botex can smoother these out and give one a more youthful, pleasant, less stressed, gorgeous, appearance.

Will there be any side effect?
Side effects are usually transient and mild to moderate in nature. Some people notice temporary weakness of muscles or discomfort at the injection site. Some common side effects reported are headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea.
NB : before considering any treatment you must consult your Doctor and discuss in detail disclosing all medical condition, allergies and any ongoing medication or therapy etc.
