BOTOX® injections are now one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world, accounting for 42% of non-surgical procedures carried out in Asia.

BOTOX® is the short name for botulinum toxin, a group of molecules created by the bacteria clostridium botulinum.

In large amounts, this toxin can be extremely dangerous, causing muscle paralysis. However, by diluting the toxin, BOTOX® has become a popular and safe procedure. BOTOX® injections are diluted with a mixture of botulinum toxin type A, human albumin and sodium chloride. These small, diluted amounts can be directly injected into muscles to treat wrinkles and facial creases by relaxing the muscle tension in the skin.

Additionally, BOTOX®  has been successful in treating medical conditions such as neck spasms, excessive sweating and lazy eye by blocking the action of some of the nerves.
