Botox is one of the most exciting advances for treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face. Botox Cosmetic is a sterilized, purified, naturally occurring protein that has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is applied. This relaxation lasts for 3-4 months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition.
Botox is also used to treat hyperhidrosis (severe sweating) of the underarms. When Botox is injected into the skin, it temporarily blocks the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. In clinical studies, the average duration of response is 6.7 months.
