Botox is actually a purified toxin, but when used in small amounts it does not cause any harm to the body. When used as an injectable cosmetic treatment it will improve the signs of aging on the face, whether you want to soften the deep lines of the forehead or relax the facial muscles to give the facial asymmetry.

Doctors, dentists, and registered nurses can prescribe and inject botox, but only with a prescription, however, although estheticians can inject botox, their clients must first receive a face-to-face consultation with a medical professional who can then prescribe the drug. It is illegal for estheticians to use botox that has not been specifically prescribed for you.

If you are considering getting botox, the first thing to do is consult a medical professional. You must choose a trained and qualified doctor to inject the botox into your face, one with steady hands, the eye of an artist, and the skill and passion to get the correct treatment. You can find online aesthetic courses from

A face-to-face consultation is essential, as the doctor will listen to your questions and be able to assess whether botox treatment is right for you, while taking note of your cosmetic concerns, preferences, and desired results. The doctor will also inform you about the risks, which can include allergic reactions, bruising, and minimal swelling.

During botox treatment, you will receive precise injections at strategic locations; on the frown lines, the folds of the forehead, the crow's feet around the eyes, and the neckbands, leaving you with smoother, younger skin that looks more relaxed and healthy. Botox administered by unprofessional and untrained people is a different story. Too much-injected botox can leave you looking frozen and unnatural, or if injected incorrectly it can cause asymmetry and droopy eyes.

In the hands of a fully trained physician, the safe and effective placement of botox can create a natural look that will make your face look younger and feel fresher and more relaxed.
