Yes! Botox® has been around for at least 20 years and used to treat many conditions. In fact, it is used in children as young as 2 years old to treat muscle spasms. Botox® is an FDA and Canada’s Health Protection Branch approved prescription drug.
It is a purified protein which is extracted from natural bacteria and processed under strict pharmaceutical manufacturing guidelines. Similar to how penicillin once came from mold.
When used for cosmetic purposes, you receive minute amounts of the Botox® into specific muscles which help to soften unwanted lines and furrows.
As long as it is injected by a properly trained injector, you should have no unwanted side effects and be left with a refreshed, younger look.
