Botox® injection is one of the most effective method in preventing and treating facial wrinkles.
It is shown that Botox® injections which is applied according to the medical principles are safe and effective to remove the wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows and "crow's feet" wrinkles around the eyes as well as to prevent further formation of new wrinkles.
In addition, Botox® injections also work for "hyperhydrosis" which is excessive sweating of the armpits (axilla) and palm of the hands by decreasing the amount of sweating.
In the first injection Botox® treatments have a 4-6 months of effect, with recurring injections Botox® has at least 6 months of duration of action. The mass of facial musculature decreases by recurring Botox® injections and therefore a permanent effect of Botox® emerges with time which is the key success in the Botox treatment.
Botulinum toxin type A has two FDA approved brand names: Botox® and Dysport®.
