Botulinum toxin, popularly known as Botox injections are one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments in the beauty industry. It is estimated that more than 6 million injections are given each year. Usually, these injections are either Botox, Xeolin or Dyspot. These neurotoxins are derived from Clostridium botulinum, a naturally occurring organism that exists inactively and is also non-toxic.
The Botulinum toxin is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that develop on the skin, especially around the eyes. The toxin paralyzes the underlying muscles. For this reason, Botox treatments are usable beyond beauty. Some people use Botox injections to manage muscular movements, bladder and bowel disorders, migraines and excessive sweating.
