Botox injection can lift the corner of your mouth by causing relaxation to the depressor anguli oris muscle. Botox can also be an alternative to a surgical nose job. By injecting the depressor septi nasi muscle with botox, your nose will appear sharper and perkier. This is because the depressor septi nasi muscle is the one causing your nose to appear droopy and fat. Mouth corner lift by Mediviron is a wonderful procedure to deal with flabby or droopy mouth corners.
Botox or also known as botulinum toxin is a toxin that is made up of protein. Botulinum toxin or botox is produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. There are several types of botox. They are botulinum toxin A, botulinum toxin B, botulinum toxin C, botulinum toxin D, botulinum toxin E, botulinum toxin F, and botulinum toxin G. If we are infected by Clostridium botulinum, we will suffer from a disease known as botulism. Medical advancement has helped us to find the treatment for botulism. Other than that, the progressive research and development in the medical and cosmetic field have made it possible for us to utilize botulinum toxin or botox in solving other problems.
Botox is also a type of neurotoxin. This means that botox will affect human nerves. In detail, botox will act on the junction between the nerves and the muscles. This junction is known as the neuromuscular junction. As a result, there will be localized muscle relaxation and paralysis. Wrinkles and fine lines happened due to muscle contraction. As a conclusion, botox can remove wrinkles and make you look younger with tighter skin. First, botox powder is diluted in normal saline or sterile water. Then, the prepared solution is injected on the targeted sites like on the face. The results will slowly appear after 24hours following botox injections. On average, your skin will become smoother and free from wrinkles within 3 to 5 days post botox injections.
Botox injections are commonly done on the face to remove facial wrinkles. Generally, those who are above 18 years old, physically healthy, and free from any neuromuscular disease are suitable to undergo this procedure. However, some people are not allowed to go for botox therapy. They are:

The minimum gap between treatments is 4 months.
