What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Botox is the brand name of the neurotoxin protein developed by Allergan Inc. Originally invented to help treat crossed or wandering eyes, Botox is most commonly used today to treat the effects of aging and give users a youthful appearance. When applied by a Certified Injector, Botox is very effective at removing wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles.
How Does Botox Work?
The bacterium where Botox comes from, clostridium botulinum, is naturally found all over the world, including in forests, lakes, soil, and more. It’s also commonly found in mammals, fish, shellfish, and other animals. For the most part, it’s harmless. But if the bacteria spores transform, it can become a neurotoxin that disrupts the signaling process allowing neurons to communicate. And that is how muscles are frozen and lines disappear.
Because of this, it’s very important, always, to find a licensed injector or doctor that specializes in Botox treatments. When in doubt, it’s essential to work with someone who has this certification to ensure you’re getting the best care.
