Good News! Botox really works.

In 2002, when Botox was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, many patients were weary about using it. Now, a decade later, Botox has become a multi-million dollar industry with millions of people receiving Botox injections. Many clinical trials have proven that Botox is an effective way to reduce wrinkles.
Botox works by injecting a purified protein neurotoxin produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria into the treatment area. As a result of the injection muscle can no longer contract which leads to the reduction of wrinkles for up to three to five months.

Jean-Louis Sebagh who owns a clinic in Paris spoke very elegantly about the effectiveness of Botox, “Botox is an amazing treatment for mechanical ageing – where the face is over-expressive, leading to wrinkles – which we simply couldn’t treat before.” He goes on to say, “Botulinum toxin has become such a sophisticated treatment that we can reshape brows, widen the eyes and minimise facial asymmetries, while preserving natural movement.”

Traditionally, Botox was just used as a treatment for wrinkles but in the past decade Botox had also been used to successfully treat stress inconsistence, cerebral palsy, depression and migraines.

Botox should only be administered by a trained medical professional and a thorough evaluation should be conducted before the treatment is given.
