We get a lot of questions concerning the use of Botox for wrinkles and fine lines. What is it and why is it so popular these days?
Injected Botulinum toxin prevents the release of a substance called acetylcholine which inhibits contraction of the muscles, temporarily paralyzing them. The toxin causes the muscles responsible for the wrinkles and fine lines to relax. This property of the toxin is why it is used in aesthetics medicine to treat these fine lines and wrinkles and improve the appearance of the skin.

As global life expectancy continues to increase, the question older people are asking is how to age with grace and look good doing it. In the forefront of the war against aging is the injectable toxin called Botulinum. This toxin is presently used in Nigeria in many spas.
Did you know that the Botulinum toxin is one of the most poisonous substances around? In fact just one gram could kill about one million persons.
When used in aesthetics, Botulinum toxin is injected under the skin in very small doses. Clients start to see the effect in 24-72 hours but sometimes it takes as long as 5 days for the full effect to be observed.
Beyond aesthetic medicine, Botulinum toxin is used to treat a variety of medical conditions including migraines, eyelid spasm, excessive sweating under the armpits and palms as well as bladder related problems.
The procedure is not for everyone. The toxin should not be used in pregnant or lactating women or persons who have had a previous allergic reaction to the drug.
When administered by a trained professional, the procedure is relatively safe and effective in reducing the effects of aging.
