Botox Facts

Botox™ is a brand name given to a product derived from the Botulinum Toxin. Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxin protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum; one of the most poisonous naturally occurring toxins in the world. Through testing, doctors found that a weakened form of this powerful toxin could be used in small amounts to treat certain medical conditions. Botox™ was first approved by the FDA as a treatment for problems with muscles around the eyes. It was only later observed that a side effect of Botox™ usage was a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes where eye muscles had been treated with Botox™. Botox™ is delivered by injection through the skin and into the muscle where it causes a temporary paralization. This can result is a reduction of wrinkles that can last from two to four months. According to the FDA, possible side effects may include:

  1. Droopy eyelids, which can last for a few weeks
  2. Flu like symptoms
  3. Headaches
  4. Risk of developing Botulism in extreme cases

It is Important to remember that Botox is a Drug and NOT a cosmetic.
