What is Botox and what does it actually do?
It is purified protein derivative of botulinum toxin. Botox is one of the most dangerous substances in the world. A little amount of it can kill millions of people because it stops muscle contractions! How would it kill? Well if it finds a way to get inside our diaphragm we will no longer be able to breath. Muscles need nerves to do anything so what it does is simply preventing nerves from sending messages to muscles. At the nerve terminal the nerve and the muscle meet. the nerve would normally transmit the signal from the brain thru the gap called the synapse into the muscle. However Botox block release of the nerves sending molecules called the neuronal transmitters. This means the muscle will never receive a signal from the brain and will never contract but when it is used in very localized areas of the body we can use it to target specific nerves to reach muscles which we want to prevent them from contracting.
It is used to cure cerebal plasty, migraines, eye paralysis, blinking and squints. It is pretty much safe and it is USFTA approved. it works on all the wrinkle Causing muscles and it relaxes them and if you use too much all the lines disappear and you look expressionless. The key is to use small units of botulinum toxin which is adequate for that particular muscle and it will give you a natural look on the face. You can use Botox to get rid of forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, Bunny’s (Scrunch) lines, Popply Chin (Mentalis), Marionette lines (Depressor Angulii Oris). Sometimes some patients have a square shaped face, you can have a more natural look by injecting Botox into the muscles of mastication. The effect of Botox appears in 24 to 48 hours after injection and lasts for 4 to 6 months. If you didn’t like it, don’t worry about it! Don’t freak out! It will all be gone in 4 to 6 months and you’ll go back to your natural look so lets give it a try!
The right age to do Botox
So lets talk about the age to use Botox. According to what doctors say, it is okay to use Botox after your 18 but the best age to use Botox is after 35 to 40 years of age.
Something that worries alot of people!
Some people are scared if they use Botox and then stop, the lines will be worsen! What you do when using Botox is not allowing muscles of those parts not to work much! As a result, if they don’t work much the lines will stop growing and wont worsen!
۳ important points for those who want to do Botox:
۱٫ Get the procedure done from a trained professional
۲٫ Don’t go over board with Botox
۳٫ Don’t try to get rid of all the facial lines.
Who should not be doing Botox?
Pregnant ladies shouldn’t do it. People who have active infections are also not allowed to do it. It is better to use less green tea and white been because when you eat these the bleeding from injecting will last longer due to their effect on blood so its better not to eat/drink them at least 3 days before doing Botox injection.
So lets talk about side effects, the side effects for Botox injections are Redness, Swelling and headaches for few hours. Other than these there are not major side effects unless the injection is not done properly or not done with high quality liquids. It is not expensive as well!

۱٫ It is also used to treat excessive sweating. This disorder is being cured with other treatments too but Botox is the easiest and the most useful of them!
۲٫ Migraines. How It treats the Migraine is still unknown but believe it or not, Botox treats it! Some specialists believe that it blocks the nerves so they cant send pain messages to the brain and then it helps muscles to be less sensitive to pain so it kind of treats Migraines! Those who are under treatment say their Migraines have decreased at least 50% since the time they started treatments!
۳٫ Enlarged Prostate Gland. Men with Enlarged Prostates can be relieved by injecting it for almost a year! Injecting Botox directly to the prostate gland helps with the conditions such as urinary tract infections and frequent urination.
۴٫ Arthritis pain. Initial research shows that it can reduce pain associated with arthritis by blocking the area’s muscles from receiving pain messages by nerves attached to spine. These benefits and relieves can last any where from 3 to 12 month.
۵٫ Premature aging. They say it is for older people but that is simply not the case. it gets rid of old wrinkles but it also stops new wrinkles from forming!

۶٫ Over active Bladder. It means your Bladder can contract at inconvenient times. sometimes causing pain and sometime At the middle of your class, party or meeting! Surgeons can inject Botox to walls of the bladder’s sides to stop muscles from contracting which is the cause of these symptoms although the Bladder is made of smooth muscles which doesn’t always need nerve impulses to contract but over active Bladder happens to be brought om by nerve signals and so it works effectively in this case!
We tried to show useful sides of using Botox to inform more and more people about its side effects (which are really few compared to its Benefits) and it its benefits.
