Benefits of Botox
Despite being made from a bacterium that is dangerous to eat, Botox when used as a cosmetic is surprisingly safe. Essentially, Botox is injected into the muscle beneath the skin, limiting movement, which smooths the appearance of the surface skin. Botox was first developed to treat muscle spasms because it relaxes muscle activity. In addition to being used for cosmetic enhancement, recent studies indicate that it is useful in helping people treat chronic migraines, excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis), and urinary incontinence.
