When Botox Cosmetic ® is injected into specific facial muscles, it prevents nerve impulses from causing the muscles to contract, allowing these muscles to relax. This effect allows skin to be smooth and wrinkle-free.
There are many uses of Botox Cosmetic ®. This includes Hyperhidrosis (excess sweating) of armpits, hands and feet as well as for relief for sore back muscles and migraine headaches.
The Botox Cosmetic ® procedure is non-surgical and can be performed in only 15 minutes. Most patients get back to work right away. Optimal result usually appears in 3 to 4 days and will last for 3 to 4 months.
