Botox injection is a beauty treatment in which the doctor injects a substance called Botulinum Toxin Type A into the skin. Botulinum Toxin Tyte A is a neurotoxin protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species.
Botox was originally FDA approved in 1989 for the treatment of blepharospasm and other eye muscle problems. Botox works by targeting the nervous system, disrupting the signaling processes that cause muscles to contract; therefore, temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles. Until now, Botox is used to treat many different conditions such as excessive underarm sweating, migraines, muscular disorders, bladder and bowel disorders...
For cosmetic purpose, Botox is injected into the skin to relax the facial muscles responsible for the formation of wrinkles when people move their face. By preventing muscle contraction, Bo.tox can dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles and also slow down the formation of new lines.
Botox is highly effective when treating dynamic wrinkles - the kind of lines that appear when people move their face; such as forehead lines, crow's feet, frown lines between the eyebrows, chin wrinkles... Botox injection gives very quick result. It only takes 5 - 7 days after the injection for the lines to fade away completely.
On top of reducing wrinkles, ROHTO AOHAL CLINIC also offers other kinds of Botox treatment:

- Treating excessive sweating in the armpits, hands and feet.
