Botulinum toxin, better known under the trademark Botox®, was initially used as a treatment for movement disorders such as strabismus or for spastic movements after a stroke, before it found its use in beauty medicine. In the meantime, botulinum toxin is increasingly used worldwide as a remedy against wrinkles, using a special effect of the toxin that prevents the contraction of muscles, and as a result, treated skin areas appear younger and smoother. This special property of botulinum toxin is used by beauty medicine in particular to combat expression lines on people’s faces.
Botox treatments are therefore standard treatments in the world of the beautiful and successful, and due to the strong demand, are becoming more and more affordable and thus affordable for more and more people. However, even if it appears to be a gentle procedure, care should always be taken to ensure that botulinum toxin is only injected by specialist doctors. After all, botulinum toxin is a poison that can lead to mild but also serious side effects if administered in the wrong dosage or in an overdose.
You should never forget that cosmetic surgery is a medical procedure that can carry risks.
