BOTOX is purified Botulinum Toxin Type A produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is a versatile product which is used to treat various conditions such as blepharospasms, migraine, muscle hyperactivity and stiffness, facial wrinkles and excessive sweatiness.
Its commonest use nowadays is to erase facial wrinkles via a few tiny injections on the face. The results are dramatic and apparent within days. It has been widely used for more than 10 years, and is approved by the US FDA for such cosmetic purposes.
