WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox’s official brand name is Bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Created and founded by Allergan and also the most common treatment in the beauty and Aesthetics industry. While there are other brands that also address the same concerns and work similarly Botox was the first to hit the market. Botox is a toxin, which tends to scare people away, but it only a small quantity of botox is ever injected to your body. For example, the common amounts of units can range between 20-50 units of Botox per area. For Botox to be truly “toxic” for you, you would have to be injected with 2,500-3,000 units – and that would never happen!
When Botox is injected it doesn’t just roam through your body, it can only travel 3cm from the point of injection. The amazing part of Botox is that such a small amount can get the job done. We always say less is more because within 6 days of your treatment you can say hello to smooth ageless skin again.
