This is an extremely potent neurotoxin complex which causes relaxation of muscles, marked reduction in gland secretory activity and silencing of nociceptor function on its absorption. The medical science has developed methodology to derive magical drug effect by unique formulation and controlled administration techniques. It has been used to correct undesirable muscular activity for a considerable period without surgical intervention. This action is reversible in nature in a few months. Since BOTO GENIE® is in a highly purified form & is used in minute quantities, it does not induce any immunological response even after several treatments in most subjects.
