How Does BOTOX Works?
Botox act on nerve endings. It reduces the effect of nerve stimulation end organ
1. Reduces muscle contraction
2. Reduces salivary secretion
3. Reduces perspiration
The neurotoxic proteins in Botox injections affect nerve impulses by blocking the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which temporarily prevents muscle cell contraction and glandular cell activity. Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can’t contract.
When used cosmetically, Botox is injected into specific facial or neck muscles, forcing them to relax and reducing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, and forehead and frown lines. That makes wrinkles relax and soften.
Botox toxins may also be injected directly into overactive muscles or glands to limit their activity, such as the sweat glands under the armpits, neck muscles, or hand muscles.
Normally, Botox injections begin working within a few days of an injection. They tend to have only a localized, not systemic or whole-body effect.
Toxins of Botox are thought to remain active in the body or target area for 4 to 6 months before being metabolized and excreted from the body.
Botox won’t help with wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity.
Duration of action: The effects of Botox are temporary, lasting 4-6 months, depending on the treatments.
