The first signs of aging starts with facial wrinkles. This becomes a factor for worry among women and naturally they will be puzzled and would like to get rid of this at any cost.

Botox treatment, one of the most tried and tested methods of wrinkle treatment is offered at Almeka Medical Centre. Botox is a purified protein material used for medical purposes for more than five decades. Wrinkles are formed due to continuous muscle contractions during facial expressions over long periods of time. Botox works by blocking the overactive nerve impulses that result in extreme muscle contractions, thus reducing the wrinkles. Based on the requirement, a desired amount of Botox is injected into the muscle responsible for creating the wrinkle. Once Botox is injected, the muscle relaxes and the wrinkle softens while the surrounding muscles, which are untreated, contract in a normal fashion.
Botox treatment is used for three main purposes: muscle spasm control, severe underarm sweating and cosmetic improvement.
It is FDA-approved for this use. Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for Botox injections are very small, so pain is usually minimal. The area can be numbed with a topical anesthetic cream or cold pack 10-20 minutes before the injections are given, so you may not feel much pain, if any.
