Treatment with botulinum toxin (Botox) not only effectively deals with mimic wrinkles but can also solve excessive sweating and migraine issues.
Botulinum toxin is a naturally-occurring bacteria protein, which is used in a highly-refined form as a medicinal product, blocking nerve impulses when injected into the muscle fibres. Injecting botox into certain areas of the body allows it to avoid these muscles becoming tense.
Through this, the formation of mimic wrinkles can be impeded or even fully prevented. However, in the long run, the effectiveness of the compound means that furrowing the forehead, lifting the eyebrows or similar movements may no longer be possible. Sensing nerve functions, such as the sense of touch, warmth and cold sensibility and vibration sensing are, however, not influenced by this.
Botox is also used for the neurological treatment of muscle cramps, migraines, teeth grinding and excessive sweating.
