Botox, which is short for botulinum neurotoxin, is a toxic protein produced by the bacteria Clostridia botulinum and its related species. It inhibits the release of acetylcholine in the neuromuscular juncture, thus resulting in paralytic paralysis in the muscle. Botulism is caused by infection with the organism Clostridial botulism. However, the main cause of this type of Botox is injury to the muscle tissue around the eye caused by a blow to the face or to the head, typically by a baseball or golf club. This type of Botox is used as a topical solution on the area affected by injury.Get the facts about Brentwood Botox.

Botox as a non-surgical solution has numerous advantages over surgery. The first advantage is that Botox treatment does not require recovery from anesthesia. The second advantage is that Botox treatments are relatively safe when performed by an experienced physician. The third advantage is that Botox treatments do not involve any type of pain at all during the procedure, unlike other types of cosmetic surgery, which usually require numbing medications. Finally, there is no downtime required for Botox treatments. Patients may experience slight redness or stinging around the eyes. In some cases, patients may experience temporary dryness of the eyes and puffiness.

The FDA conducted a clinical trial to test the safety and effectiveness of Botox, but the results have not been released to the public due to a lack of evidence. Because of this potential side effect, there are currently only a few qualified clinics and physicians who can perform Botox treatments.
