What is Botox?
One extremely surprising fact about the treatment is that many people undergoing the procedure don't actually know what they are having injected into themselves.
This is something we don't agree with, so we want everyone to understand what botox injections comprise of.
The active ingredient in these injections is botulinum, which causes the muscles to become paralyzed. While this can be a dangerous substance, a trained surgeon in this discipline- such as the ones at CoLaz – knows exactly how much to use and how to keep patients safe.
Botox & Headaches
Besides being associated with cosmetic procedures, botox is also a widely accepted treatment for those over 18 years of age who suffer from chronic headaches for more than 15 days of the month.
In order to treat headaches, botox is injected into the muscles of the forehead, as well as into the side and back of the head, the neck and the shoulders.
These injections act on the nerve endings and prevent muscles from contracting, therefore lessening or completely eradicating headaches for much of the time.
