Botulinum toxin A or “Botox” as it is commonly called blocks signals from nerves to muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract as it is paralyzed by the toxin, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines which are “dynamic” in nature; meaning they result from muscle activity. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.
Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA), also called botulinum toxin type A, is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. While botulism can be a fatal disease, harvesting tiny amounts of the purified Botulinum toxin can be useful in medical treatment. Botulinum toxin is used to treat many medical conditions including some bowel and bladder disorders, migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasm including cervical dystonia (severe spasms in the neck muscles). Botox is more than just a cosmetic therapy.
Botox is an FDA approved therapy requiring no down time. It is minimally invasive and has been used extensively for many years with an excellent safety profile. It is a proven therapy and is quickly administered.
