What is Botox?
Botox is an injection used to smooth lines and wrinkles in the face. It actually reduces the contractions of your facial muscles that cause the wrinkles in the first place resulting in smoother looking skin. Botox has been around for a long time. It was first approved by the FDA in 1989 to treat two rare eye muscle disorders, blepharospasm and strabismus. From there, the discovery that botox could be used for so much more sparked the FDA to approve its use for wrinkles between the eyebrows. It continued to get more FDA approvals for different treatments as its popularity continued to grow.
Where Can Botox Be Used?
Botox is currently used in two common problem areas, between the eyebrows and around the eyes. Frown lines often occur between the eyebrows, causing deep set and severe lines. Botox helps to smooth those lines and give the appearance of younger tighter skin. With age, crow’s feet tend to form in the outer corners and around the eyes. Again, botox can smooth those lines and inhibit the production of new lines and wrinkles.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is essentially an injectable muscle relaxer. It is actually a toxin created by the bacterium clostridium botulinum. When injected into the face, it blocks the signals from the muscle nerves to the brain, inhibiting the muscle’s ability to contract. Less contractions in facial muscles results in fewer movements that cause the wrinkles and lines in the first place. It also smooths the appearance of the wrinkles that may already be there.
