|We often many questions about Botox treatments. Many ask what is a BOTOX® Injection. To answer that we need to explain that Botox Inject and Botox Shot are the most widely used tern to describe the procedure of administering what we know as the Allergan BOTOX® Cosmetic treatement. BOTOX® injections or shots utilize Botulinum Toxin Type A to treat facial lines, fine lines and wrinkles, crow's feet and forehead lines.
Now that we covered what is a BOTOX® shot or injection your next question what exactly is a BOTOX® treatment? In simple terms BOTOX ® treatments / shots, or BOTOX® injection treatments are a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent that works at motor nerve endings. These nerves are those that lead to muscles. The actual treatment or BOTOX®® Cosmetic is a drug used for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines. These are also known as glabellar lines. These glabellar lines or frown lines come from muscles called corrugator and/or procerus muscles. The BOTOX® injection treatment is the name that is used for the process of injecting the BOTOX® Cosmetic product into the patient.
U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved BOTOX® injection treatments for cosmetic use in April 2002. The main effect of BOTOX® injections is that within a few hours to a couple of days after the botulinum toxin is injected into the affected muscle(s), the spasms or contractions are reduced or eliminated altogether. Thus the elimination or reduction of facial lines, fine lines and wrinkles, crow's feet and forehead lines. With that in mind it is also important to know that the effects of BOTOX® treatments are not permanent, reportedly lasting anywhere from three to eight months. To reduce the spread of the BOTOX® injection to other areas of the body the doctor will inject the toxin directly into a certain muscle or muscle group. This way the risk of the BOTOX® injection treatments spreading is greatly diminished. To show or give you an example of the effects of BOTOX® injection will we consider the muscles around the eye. When injected into the muscles surrounding the eyes, these muscles can not scrunch up or contract for a period of time. They are in essence paralyzed. With that effect the areas of wrinkles or crows feet in that area temporarily go away.
