With the beginning of each new year many people make resolutions with regards to their appearance. If looking better is something you are concerned with then Botox Cosmetic might be the answer.
Botox Cosmetic is a medically diluted from botulinum toxin for the removal of facial wrinkles. This toxin originates from specific bacterium called Clostridum botulinum that is found in improperly handled meat products. However, Botox Cosmetic was originally approved by the FDA in 2002 for medical use. It is currently the most popular non-surgical procedure for the removal of facial wrinkles available today. Botox works by temporarily paralyzing nerves that control muscles – relaxing the appearance of wrinkles.
When Botox Cosmetic is administered by a licensed professional, it can have a positive effect on how you look. Botox treatments usually last around four to six months. However, there is a word of caution: Be wary of personal “Botox Parties” hosted in people’s homes. You should avoid these – don’t allow yourself to be practiced on by unlicensed individuals – there are considerable risks that can permanently harm you either through improper administration of this drug or with tainted botulinum toxin. Furthermore, with the success of Botox cosmetic comes the risk of illegal “Black Market Botox” becoming available without a prescription. Black market botulinum toxin is unsafe and potentially dangerous since the potency and authenticity is not approved by the FDA.
