Botox is generally administered in the form of injections. They are best known in the group of medication that utilizes various forms of botulinum toxin, which temporarily paralyzes muscle activity. The toxin is manufactured by a microbe that causes botulism. The main utilization of botox injections is for their ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. Botox injections are also used to treat certain medical problems in people like repetitive neck spasms, excessive sweating, lazy eye, overactive bladder, etc. Botox can sometimes also cure chronic migraines in some patients.
Why is it done?
Botulinum toxin injections are used to block certain chemical signals from the nerves. These are mostly the signals that can cause the muscles to contract. Most commonly, botox injections are used to temporarily relax the muscles that cause wrinkles like:
- Frown lines between eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead furrows
Botulinum toxin injections can also be used to treat various conditions that can affect the body functions. These conditions include:
- Cervical dystonia
- Lazy eye
- Muscle contractures
- Chronic migraine
- Bladder dysfunction
- Eye twitching
Botox must be administered only under the care of an experienced doctor. The injections need to be placed very precisely in order to avoid any side effects or botched jobs. This therapy can become rather dangerous if it is not performed correctly.
Possible side effects of botox include:
- Pain, bruising or swelling at the site of the injection
- Flu-like symptoms
- Droopy eyelid
- Cockeyed eyebrows
- Crooked smile
- Dryness or excessive tearing of the eye
