Botox is made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. This neurotoxin is produced by bacteria, found in our natural environment. Botulinum toxin is used in diluted forms as Botox injections to treat fine lines and wrinkles and other muscular ailments. Botox injections are used by cosmetologists to delay the signs of aging by giving a firm, youthful appearance to the skin. Botox is also administered to regulate various medical conditions, including but not limited to a migraine, leaky bladder, and eye twitching. Botulinum toxin blocks the pathways between the nerve cells and the muscles by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters that carry messages to the muscles. Due to lack of appropriate signals from the nerve cells the muscles fail to contract in response. The condition is similar to controlled paralyzes of the muscles. Pregnant or lactating women and individuals who have had a previous allergic reaction should avoid the use of Botox. Injections with botulinum toxin are generally well tolerated and there are few side effects. In rare cases, an individual may have a genetic predisposition that results in a mild, transient unusual response to the mild pain, headache, nausea, weakness of adjoining muscles, drooping of the upper eyelid or brow, neck weakness, Transient numbness, blurred vision, fatigue, influenza-like symptoms or rashes. Some individuals may develop antibodies that make future treatments ineffective. A single session can cost from Rs.15000 to Rs.18000. Individual injections can be procured for $ 10 to $ 15. The procedure takes less than an hour, however, the Botox treatment may take 48 to 72 hours to take effect.
