Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are FDA approved brand names in the family of anti-aging treatments that are derived from the Botulinum toxin. In large amounts Botulinum is a dangerous neurotoxin and is the cause of botulism, in large amounts can cause serious nervous system disorder, but has been safely, and effectively used in tiny amounts in corrective cosmetics for decades. Clostridium botulinum is the bacterium that makes the neurotoxin that causes muscle paralysis, and when used in cosmetic, or for medical purposes, a specific type of the bacteria (type A) is used.
Botox neurotoxin treatments are extremely popular, and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments, that are used safely by close to 10 million Americans each year. Used in micro-amounts, this neurotoxin is used to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines on the face, aptly known as expression lines as they are commonly caused by frowning, squinting, and smiling. A loss in elasticity of the skin, and reduced collagen production as we age, are also contributors to lines and wrinkles in the face, which is treated successfully and safely with neurotoxin Botox injections.
When a neurotoxin is injected into the muscle, nerve signals are blocked, which temporarily paralyzes, or freezes the muscle, and when muscle movement stops, some wrinkles are reduced, softened or sometimes removed entirely. Botox treatments are effective at reducing wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement, such as expression lines, or dynamic wrinkles, most commonly found in the upper face area. Horizontal lines on the forehead, and the two little lines between the eyebrows, sometimes called the “11” lines, as well as wrinkles around the eyes known as crow’s feet, are expression lines most commonly treated with neurotoxin Botox. Static wrinkles, which are those caused by sagging skin, or reduced plumpness in the face, neck, cheeks, or jowls, are not correctable using Botox injections. These aesthetic corrections can be made using dermal fillers.
Neurotoxin Botox treatments are minimally invasive, and only take about 10 minutes to administer, with no anesthesia necessary, and require very little, if any downtime. Because it is an injection, most people report little discomfort and that the injection feels like a pinch. Most people report seeing results from their first neurotoxin Botox injection within 48 to 72 hours, with a smoothing of forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet. Neurotoxin injection results are temporary and commonly last between three to four months. Unless otherwise directed, you can return to work or normal activities immediately following treatment.
Neurotoxin Botox injections are most commonly known as a popular treatment for improving appearance by relaxing the muscles that create wrinkles, leading to people feeling and looking younger.
