Botox before and afterBotox has become more and more popular over the last ten years. However, Botox still has a bad reputation with many people. Many people are afraid to get Botox because it is a toxin. Below are three facts that dispel the myths associated with Botox.

Botox does not contain the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, the bacterium that causes botulinum. Botox only contains the protein which is involved in the effect. Unless the bacteria are in the body, the protein will not continually be produced, and symptoms of botulism will not be seen.

Botox is injected very superficially into the skin. Botox does not reach the bloodstream sufficiently to cause the symptoms associated with botulism.

3. The amount of
Botox required to cause symptoms of botulism is approximately 100 times the amount of Botox injected into the skin.
