All About Botox
Botox injections are big news these days. Every second, a celebrity is singing praises about Botox and the effects it has on their appearance. It’s ability to temporarily paralyze muscles, thereby smoothing wrinkles, and giving the face a more youthful appearance, is highly prized by both men and woman.
Let’s face it, its non-invasive, so even if you are wary of going under the knife, it’s a great option for lessening the appearance of those tell-tale wrinkles. Now, you may be wondering whether injecting a known toxin into yourself is a good idea, but when you look at the history of Botox and examine the technique, chances are you’ll start to feel a lot better about the idea, and might even decide to join the legions of fans of this cosmetic treatment.
The History of Botox
Because of its paralyzing effects, Botox, or Botulism toxin, was identified as a potential therapy for a host of ailments some time ago – in the 19th century to be exact. However, research into its effects took considerably longer. Nonetheless, as far back as the 1960s, doctors were experimenting with its use as a treatment and had developed a neutralized preparation. By the 1980s, human trials had begun, although Botox was still considered a medical, rather than a cosmetic treatment.
In 1989, it was approved by the Food and Drug Association (FDA) in the US, and its way into the mainstream was paved. By 2002, it had been approved for cosmetic use and Botox techniques had been developed. Of course, the discovery, like many important medical advances, was by accident, when a husband-and-wife team of dermatologists noticed that patients receiving treatment for eye disorders experienced a marked smoothing of wrinkles in the area.
How Botox Works?
Botox A, the type of Botox injection used in cosmetic applications, paralyzes muscles where it is injected, for up to four months. A doctor or dermatologist will administer the injections, according to the approved Botox technique; in the area you require treatment. It is localized, and, if administered by a trained professional, completely safe.
Since the underlying muscle is paralyzed by the Botox injection, they are completely relaxed, which results in the smoothing of the skin that covers them, hence the reduction or elimination of wrinkles.
Can You Still Frown?
Most people’s biggest fear when considering Botox techniques to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and give them a more youthful appearance, is that they won’t be able to frown, or that other parts of their faces will become paralyzed. This is a myth; however, and Botox injections administered by a professional are incredibly localized, affecting only the desired muscles, and leaving the rest of your face free to laugh, smile and frown.
Other Uses of Botox
Despite the widespread knowledge of Botox injections’ efficiency in treating wrinkles, it’s also been used to treat excessive blinking, excessive sweating, and even migraines, among a host of other disorders.
