Cosmetic injectables such as Botox are among the most popular noninvasive procedures available. When injected by a trained professional, they can transform one’s appearance in a subtle, natural fashion.
What is Botox/ Dysport?
Botox is an injectable medicine formulated from Botulinum toxin. It temporarily relaxes the facial muscles that cause deep wrinkles and fine lines, offering a quick and virtually pain-free way to achieve a smooth, youthful and well-rested appearance.
Are neurotoxins such as Botox safe to use?
Toxins have been the number one injectable cosmetic treatment for many years with over 6 million cosmetic treatments delivered per year in the United States alone. Some patients have expressed concern that the botulinum toxin is often cited as the cause of food poisoning outbreaks and wonder how it is safe as a cosmetic injectable. Botox used for medical purposes is sanitized and contains only one strain, botulinum toxin A. This strain is FDA cleared for use medically and cosmetically. It is not only safe as a cosmetic injectable; it provides relief for many medical conditions including migraine, hyperhidrosis, muscle spasms and more.
