Botox is a purified toxin, but when used in small amounts it does not cause any harm to the body. When used as an inject able cosmetic treatment it will improve the signs of aging on the face, whether you want to soften deep lines on 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 anesthetics 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 anesthetics to use Botox that has not been specifically prescribed for you.

The introductory training courses will provide you with the theoretical and practical training on the use of Botox. Whereas advance techniques would provide you the knowledge on the usage of non surgical treatments in conjunction with other products and on other medical uses of them.You can browse International Academy of Aesthetics for more information on online Botox courses.

A good practitioner is someone who has done facial aesthetics for several years, follows training courses, and has a good understanding of facial anatomy, but some people try to treat people with little or no training.

Theoretically, someone can go to a beginner botox course and the next day go to an advanced course, during this time they may only have injected one client, but they can call themselves an advanced practitioner so you should always check how much training someone has had before allowing them to inject something into your face.

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 eye, and the neckbands, leaving you with softer, younger skin that looks more relaxed and healthy. Botox administered by non-professional 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.
