Yes

Botox
Botox has been used for years in many medical applications. The amount of botox used for the typical cosmetic treatment of moderate expression lines of the face is 1/10 to 1/3 the amount used in other medical conditions. The biggest contraindications for the general healthy public include pregnancy and breast feeding or active infection at the site of treatment. Hope this helps!

What is Botox?

Botox works because

Botox
Botox is used to relax muscles that cause wrinkles when they move. Usually it is a superficial muscle and it typically involves the facial muscles. Since wrinkles are the result of repeated movement, botox can also creat smoother skin at rest. The trick is to give enough to smooth but not so much that there is no expression. Gives a 3-4 month affect.

Dr. David Clayton answered:

How could I get botox..?

From your Doctor

Botox
Botox is a substance that requires not only a doctor's prescription, but for a certified medical person to give the injection. The injector should understand facial anatomy - that's why I give my patients the injections myself. Other offices allow their nurses to give it. The bottom line is that when given correctly, it is both SAFE and EFFECTIVE for control of facial lines and wrinkles.

Is it safe to have botox?

Yes

Botox
Botox is very safe if injected by an experienced practitioner. Best if injected by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon or other specialist in facial cosmetic surgery. Ask the doctor where they trained to do Botox, how many patients treated, any complications. Avoid practitioners who learned from a weekend course. Many nurses are doing this procedure many without proper supervision.
