Botulinum Toxin is a pharmaceutical drug FDA-approved, made from Clostridium botulinum bacterium. The Botox
injection is a naturally purified protein derived from the toxin and used for both medical and cosmetic procedures. It
works as a muscle relaxant and stops the muscle from functioning by blocking the neuromuscular transmission,
therefore, stopping the chemical messages from the nerve to the muscle.

It is FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles on the face and neck and fine lines. A range of Botox treatments can
address a wide range of problem areas. The main area of treatment is the upper face region. This is broadly divided into
three regions.

The crow’s feet/laughter lines

Glabellar region /frown lines

Upper forehead region/above eyebrows

More advanced treatments for the use of BOTOX include:

Chemical brow lifts/eyelid lifts

”Gummy smile” correction

Nose tip ptosis

Dynamic wrinkles over the upper lip

Reversing a puckered or pointy chin

Redefining the neck by intervening on the platysmal muscle

Jaw line reduction

Botox for hyperhidrosis

Microbotox to improve jawls on the mandibular arch area.
