Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically eliminate wrinkles by temporarily numbing the muscles .
Botox is mainly used as a treatment to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines.
With botox we can treat:
- Crow’s feet
- furrows of the forehead
- the lines of expression
Beyond the aesthetic applications, botox is useful in the treatment of a variety of diseases, including strabismus of the eyes, migraines, excessive sweating among others.
How does botox work? Botox injection
Botox injections may seem like a simple procedure, but in reality it is an art and a science that only an experienced health professional can do.
There are 43 muscles in the face and it is vital that the person performing botox injections understand and point out the correct places to optimize the treatment.
A very thin needle is used to inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles.
By carefully choosing specific muscles, your doctor weakens only the wrinkle production muscles by protecting your natural facial expressions.
Botox injections are usually done in less than 20 minutes.
The number of injections you need will depend on your facial features and the extent of your wrinkles and crow’s feet, which usually require two or three injections. The grooves above the eyebrow may require five or more.
Botulinum toxin is injected to treat certain muscle conditions and remove wrinkles cosmetically numbing the muscles temporarily.
Botox has been shown to be a successful and valuable therapeutic protein when the dose, the frequency of treatment and the variety of clinical conditions treated are taken into account.
Botulinum toxin can be injected into humans in very small concentrations and works by preventing the nerve cell signals from reaching the muscles , effectively leaving the muscles without instructions to contract, thereby paralyzing them.
In order for the muscles to contract, the nerves release a chemical messenger, acetylcholine (a neurotransmitter), at the junction where the nerve endings meet the muscle cells. Acetylcholine binds to receptors in muscle cells and causes them to contract or shorten. The injected botulinum toxin prevents the release of acetylcholine and prevents contraction of the muscles. The effect of botulinum toxin causes a reduction in abnormal muscle contraction that allows the muscles to become less rigid.
