Botulinum toxin, more commonly known as Botox is licensed for cosmetic treatments and has been used medically for over 30 years. It is a neurotoxin that relaxes muscles temporarily, thereby stopping the formation of wrinkles. It is effective in reducing wrinkles on the forehead, the frown lines and the crow’s feet around the eyes. It can also be used to raise the brows or create an arched eyebrow. Botulinum toxin can also be effective in treating excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis in the armpits, palms and soles of the feet. Botox treatments are the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure worldwide.
