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.
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.

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.

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.
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.
