Botox is a cosmetic injection that has become very popular over the last twenty years. Botox emerged as a result of the discovery that a protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum is effective in blocking neuromuscular transmission. It does this by reducing the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from the bacteria.
While a strong, angled jawline can be desired in men, it is not usually considered attractive in women. Injected into the jaw area, botox can weaken the jaw muscles to create a softer and more feminine jawline. Jaw contraction Botox can also be used to treat bruxism or jaw clenching, as well as TMJ disease.
The use of botox for cosmetic purposes was introduced in 1989 and has enjoyed increasing popularity since then. Perhaps the best-known name for wrinkle reduction today, it is widely used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles or the "11" between the eyebrows, as well as forehead wrinkles, crow's feet, and neck bands.
However, it has been found that injecting Botox into the pectoralis minor muscle can effectively pull the shoulders back and slightly lift sagging breasts. It won't enlarge your breasts, but it can help make them look more reliable for up to four months.
Botox can not only reduce the appearance of wrinkles but also help prevent them. Used at an early age, botox can help prevent even the formation of wrinkles. Today it is used for this purpose in patients over the age of 20.
