Botox for Wrinkles
Botox for Wrinkles: Botox is a drug prepared from botulin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralysing facial wrinkles and muscles. Botulinum toxin (BTX) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is characterized by overactive muscle.
The Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are all used to counter wrinkles. They’re a purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there’s no botulism risk when used properly. They work by blocking the nerves that contract muscles, softening the appearance of wrinkles.
What Is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox is used for three main purposes: wrinkles, muscle spasm control, severe underarm sweating and cosmetic improvement. In this post we concentrate on the third use, achieved with the product called Botox Cosmetic, which contains botulinum toxin type A (the active ingredient), human albumin (a protein found in human blood plasma) and sodium chloride.
Botox applied in smoothing of glabellar lines (also called frown lines), which are the lines between your eyebrows that can make you look tired, unhappy or angry.
It is FDA-approved used and in this area only. However, it is often used off-label for horizontal forehead lines, crow’s feet, marionette lines at the corners of the mouth and smoker’s lines around the lips.
Your practitioner can help you decide which product(s) will solve your particular appearance issues, though as a general rule, Botox is used mostly in the upper portion of the face, and fillers are used mostly in other areas.
