HISTORY

Botulinum toxin is a naturally occurring protein and it’s produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. C. botulinum found in plants, soil, water, and animal intestines.

Botox ® is a neurotoxin that weakens or paralyzes the muscle.

This substance targets the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signalling process that stimulates muscle contraction and this is how the drug causes temporary muscle paralysis.

In order for the muscles to contract, nerves release a chemical messenger called acetylcholine at the junction where the nerve endings meet the muscle cells.

Acetylcholine attaches to receptors on the muscle cells and causes the cells to contract or shorten.

Botox ® injections prevent the release of acetylcholine, which stops muscle cells from contracting thus allowing the muscles to become less stiff. Cosmetic Botox ® has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration since 2002 and according to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology (AOCD), Botox ® is safe and has few side effects when used in a therapeutic context.

There are currently two different types of botulinum toxin commercially available in the United Kingdom. Type A toxin: Botox ® (Allergan), Azzalure, Bocouture, Dysport, Vistabel, Xeomin and Type B toxin: Neurobloc. People use the term Botox ® interchangeably for these various products, though “Botox” is the registered trademark of Allergan Inc.

FAQ

Botox ® injections can be used on a wide range of patients, and is primarily used for the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles and skin rejuvenation. Treatment is not advisable for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. In spite of the fact that there are no clinical studies to show that the injections are harmful to the mother or the baby, professionals advise against having the treatment.

Botox injections are not recommended if:

•  You have a skin infection;

•  You have a neuromuscular condition;

•  You are taking certain medication;

•  You are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Results will not be visible straight away. It takes about 2 to 3 days to start working and 2-3 weeks to see the full effect. The average duration for Botulinum toxin for glabella, forehead, and lateral crows’ feet is approximately three to four months but there are certain factors that may make Botox ® fade faster. If you have Botox ® injections again you should wait unless 3 months otherwise if used to often Botox ® might stop working.

The main areas that are affected by fine lines and wrinkles and may benefit from an anti-wrinkle injection are as follows: forehead lines, crow’s feet, frown lines, excessive sweating, gummy smile, bunny lines. Botox ® injections can also be used to reduce a wide jaw line, brow lifting or platysmal bands.

You should avoid excessive blood flow to the face, so we recommend that you don’t engage in strenuous exercise, have alcohol, avoid bending for few hours after the treatment and do not use sauna or steam baths for 24 hours.

To reduce the risk of complications it is important that anti-wrinkle injectables are administered by highly qualified practitioners in a safe and medical environment. Botox ® has been FDA approved since 2002 for treating ageing lines effectively and the safety record is actually very robust. Like most of the cosmetic procedures side effects can occur. Whilst very occasionally, mild bruising could occur which will subside in couple of days and in some occasions clients may experience a ‘droopy eyelid’ . Both however will fade in time.

There are no long-term side effects with anti-wrinkle injections, meaning that you can return to your usual activities straight away. For best results, avoid massaging the area for 24 hours after the treatment.

After the treatment you may experience:

· Bruising, swelling and redness at the injection site;

· Headache and flu-like symptoms for the first 24 hours;

· Temporary weakness and droopiness in your face.

Very rarely, serious problems such as blurred or double vision can happen if the area around the eyes is treated.
