Columbia, MD -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/11/2014 -- Botox is a drug that is derived from a neurotoxin and it is used to treat facial lines and wrinkles which begin to form over time as the result of constant movement of the muscles. Those who want to look more youthful and get rid of these lines or wrinkles on their face will find that Botox injections are a good option to consider. It is important to know as much as possible about these injections before making a final decision as to whether or not to get them.
Although it has different commercial names, such as Dysport, Myobloc, and Bocouture, Botox has the same overall purpose, which is to tighten up the muscles on the face and reduce lines as well as wrinkles. Although it can be highly toxic, it depends entirely on the dose. Most people who receive Botox injections do not experience any serious adverse side-effects, though there are always some exceptions to this.
After the powder is diluted with saline, it is injected into the neuromuscular tissue. The Botox takes around 24-72 hours to take effect, although sometimes people do not see the effects until four or five days after the procedure. There are certain people who are better candidates than others for Botox injections. Women who are pregnant or lactating as well as anyone who has had a severe allergic reaction to this drug will want to avoid it altogether. Those who are in generally good physical health and do not have a history of allergies will find that these injections can be highly beneficial when it comes to removing wrinkles and lines though.
