Botulinum toxin is a substance and is injected in very small amounts. It causes muscles in the face, such as frown muscles to “take a six-month vacation”. Bacteria which could ordinarily produce the botulinum toxin in nature are not found in Botox injections.

Commonly known types of botulinum toxin type A injections include Botox and Dysport.

Botulinum toxin can be used to help smooth:

– Crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes.
– Forehead furrows.
– Frown lines.
– Skin bands on the neck.
– Injection of Botox into such he areas such as on the arms, palms of the hands, and soles of the feet can help with excessive sweating.
