Botox (or botulinum toxin as it’s known in the scientific community) is an injectable substance that has become the most common cosmetic procedure performed by medical professionals in the United States, including Los Angeles and Orange County, CA. The substance that comprises Botox was first derived from bacteria after it has been found that it could be effectively utilized for therapeutic purposes in relieving muscular tension.

Why Get Botox Injections from Our Los Angeles or Orange County Clinics?

People in the Los Angeles and Orange County areas use Botox primarily to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines for the skin around the eyes and lips. Through repeated muscle pull (which occurs thousands of times each day) the skin is stretched, bent and folded.

Over a period of many years, these lines (which did not exist in our youth) become more prominent. Botox injections are able to relax the very muscles that cause such wrinkles with their contractions. By restraining these muscles from contracting, the wrinkling of the surrounding skin is prevented and our faces have a smoother, more youthful appearance.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox injections deliver a tiny amount of botulinum toxin directly into the muscle, arresting its ability to contract for an average duration of 3 or 4 months. On a cellular level, the decrease in muscle activity is caused by blocking the release of Acetylcholine from the neuron. By preventing the Acetylcholine from binding to cellular membrane into which it can be released, the muscle is rendered idle.

Possible Side Effects of Botox

Botox can produce side effects, but these are rare, generally minor and of limited duration. They can be predicted by an expert dermatologist by the mode of action and the chemical structure of the molecule (this does not make sense as dermatologists cannot predict side effects?). In rare cases, Botox side effects may include one of 2 effects: paralysis of the wrong muscle group or allergic reaction. Bruising at the site of the injection can result (as a side effect of the administration of the Botox, not a direct effect of the substance). A skilled injector at our Los Angeles or Orange County clinics can usually avoid or prevent such bruising.

Because Botox has become the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, standard techniques are widely known (but not always perfected). Botox injections is an excellent means of restoring a youthful appearance.

History of Botox

In December 1989, after extensive testing and rigorous review, Botox was granted federal approval by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of muscle spasms in patients over 12 years old. Since then, it has grown in popularity and application. In the US, Botox is manufactured by Allergan, Inc., but there are multiple versions of the product developed and utilized in other countries.
