  2. 2. Benefits of Botox Injection ? • Erase Signs of Aging :-It is commonly injected into the face to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles. • Reduce Migraine Headaches:- When Botox is injected into the forehead, neck and shoulder, it releases tension in the muscles, relieving strain on the nervous system which lessens the pain of migraines. • Ease Muscle Aches:- By injecting Botox into certain muscle areas, it temporarily paralyzes those muscles, thereby relieving unwanted aches and spasms. This procedure is also FDA-approved. • Bladder Control:- When Botox is injected into the bladder, it allows the bladder to increase in capacity. It is also effective in patients with multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injuries, since their conditions typically leave them with bladder problems. • Eye Treatments:- It has been approved to treatstrabismus, or lazy eye, and blepharospasm, twitching of the eyelids.

  5. 5. Botox- Myths & Facts • Myth #1: Botox Cosmetic is unsafe. FACT: BOTOX Cosmetic has a long and well-established safety history. While you may only know Botox as a wrinkle treatment, it has actually been in use for over 18 years for the effective treatment of a range of medical conditions and is one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. • Myth #2: BOTOX Cosmetic will result in the loss of facial expression. FACT: It is intended to enhance the way you look, not change it. When administered by an experienced physician, you can still smile, frown and animate. The treatment only relaxes the muscle beneath the lines at the point of injection, so the other elements of facial expression remain active. • Myth #3: BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is painful. FACT: Botox treatment is quick and simple. A very fine needle and small amount of liquid is used, so the pain associated with the injection is minimal. No anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately.
