Botox

Botox is an organic natural toxin that has the effect of temporarily paralyzing the muscles into which it is injected. In areas where the constant and long term action certain muscles cause the skin to crease and form “expression lines”, such as crow’s feet around the eyes and furrows on the forehead and between the eyebrows, a popular solution is to immobilize the muscles to give a more relaxed and youthful appearance. There is slight discomfort as a specific number of units are injected into de desired areas. The patient can go home with orders neither to rub the areas nor to lie down for at least 4 hrs. The effect appears in 2 to 7 days and lasts for several months. The most frequent complication is a droopy eyelid for a few weeks.
