Often described by clients and medical practitioners alike as the new "fountain of youth," BOTOX® is the brand name for Botulinum Toxin Type A. It is a protein complex produced by the bacterium "clostridium botulinum," the same bacterium that causes the form of food poisoning known as botulism.
BOTOX®, however, is a purified form of this bacterium and was developed by dermatologists in 1980 to treat muscle disorders such as uncontrolled blinking and was later put to cosmetic uses for the first time in 1987.
Nowadays, BOTOX® is being used primarily to treat so-called frown lines, crows feet, turkey neck, and other wrinkles and fine lines that tend to accumulate over time and are the result of years of squinting and frowning.
BOTOX® works on wrinkles by doing exactly that and results are seen just a few days following the procedure. This process then allows the skin to return to its natural position without the unnecessary strain of the muscles and unpleasant appearance of wrinkles.
