Botox is a procedure carried out to restrict the muscle contraction in the face, in order to prevent the development of wrinkles, particularly between the eyebrows. It works by injecting Botulinum Toxin Type A, a protein contained in the drugs, into the muscles of the face. Although it is mostly used for the appearance of your face, Botox can also be used to treat conditions such as excess sweating, leaky bladders and migraines.

Botox procedures can go wrong in many different ways, and can cause a large range of different effects, all of which differ in severity. Botox has many associated risks and side effects, and it is vital that you are advised about these prior to undergoing your Botox surgery. Although some complications of Botox can’t be helped, a large number of them actually occur due to the negligence of the surgeon performing the Botox procedure.
