Is Botox Safe?

Botox is one of the several brand names of the Botulinum toxin, which relaxes muscles instead of contracting them. When ingested, this neurotoxin causes botulism, which produces muscle paralysis, sometimes halting breathing and necessitating intubation. As frightening as the toxin is, it has found its niche in dermatology. "Wrinkles are more evident when you contract your muscles, as when you contract your muscles, as when you frown or raise your eyebrows. Since the Botulinum toxin paralyzes muscles, the wrinkles seems less evident after its injection".

Being a toxin, it may come with undesired effects. Botox can cause pain and bruising. Rare cases of death and heart dysfunction have also been reported. Fortunately, the more severe adverse effects are rare. It is best to have this procedure done by a dermatologist who is certified by the Philippine Dermatologist Society.
