Botulinum toxin, known as Botox (brand of the first drug of its kind to be sold), is actually the toxin that causes botulism. However, their ability to produce muscle paralysis for medical use in the treatment of certain neurological diseases and in aesthetic medicine for wrinkles purposes, which is why this treatment is so popular.
The technique involves the infiltration by a superfine needle of botulinum toxin into the muscle of the area to be treated, producing relaxation and inhibiting the movement thereof. Hence its main application is in cosmetic treatment of wrinkles, those that appear between the eyebrows, forehead, corners of the mouth or around the eyes.
Clostridium botulinum, the organism from which Botox is derived, is found in inactive form in the natural environment, including in the forest and cultivated soils, and in the sediment of lakes, streams, coastal and untreated waters.
The bacterium can also be found in the intestinal tracts of mammals and fish and in the gills and viscera of crabs and other shellfish. Such naturally occurring instances of Clostridium botulinum bacteria and spores are typically relatively harmless. Problems only usually arise when the spores transform into vegetative cells and the cell population increases to the point where the bacteria begin producing botulinum toxin, the deadly neurotoxin responsible for botulism.
Many of our clients will get both Botox AND laser treatments because they both target anti-aging in different ways!
