botoxWhat Is Botox?

The way Botox injections work is to temporarily paralyze muscle activity in the treated area, and provide a dermal filler which fills out your lax skin. Botox injections are perfect to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and crow’s feet in adults.

It is the most popular aesthetic application in the world, and it is also used by those with excessive underarm, hand and feet sweating as well as patients with migraine.

Overactive muscles or overuse of certain muscles can result in wrinkles and fine lines. A chemical transmitter known as acetylcholine released in the nerve fibers is responsible for contraction of muscles. Botox injections work to block the nerves thereby preventing the release of acetylcholine. Instead of contracting, the muscles stay relaxed which means absence of wrinkles.

Botox is the trademark of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. An over application of Botox may cause paralysis. However, as a result of the recent research of scientists made the advantages of Botox useful as well. Small, diluted amounts may be injected into certain muscles in a way to ensure direct and controlled muscle relaxation.

When it was discovered in the late 1980s that Botox may cease such disorders as blepharospasm (involuntary quivering of eyelids) and amblyopia (lazy eye), FDA approved that use. Plastic surgeons have been using Botox for years in order to successfully treat wrinkles and facial wrinkles. Botox has been approved for treatment of frown lines, goose foot (lines around eyes) and under arm excessive sweating.

The Difference Between Botox and Fillers

While BOTOX and facial fillers fall into the same category of injectable cosmetic medication, they perform two separate functions. Understanding these differences, patients can be more educated regarding which product is right for them or if both are.


BOTOX is a muscle relaxer. It blocks nerve signals coming from the brain that tell a certain muscle to contract. In cosmetic medicine, BOTOX is used to prevent the contraction of wrinkle-causing muscles, primarily in the forehead. With a conservative use of BOTOX.

Face Fillers

With a base of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, dermal fillers are designed to mimic the body’s native collagen layer beneath the skin. When injected precisely into certain areas of the face, facial fillers can reverse common signs of aging. These include drooping skin, fine lines and any other cosmetic issue caused by a loss of volume.

As a non-surgical procedure applied for removing mid-level and deep wrinkles, Botox is considered as a cosmetic product.
