BOTOX® is a botulinum type A product. A wrinkle injection that treats glabellar lines and other wrinkles by temporarily blocking the release of acetylcholine from nerves, helping prevent muscle movement in the area and relaxing the skin.
BOTOX® also known as VISTABEL®, is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments and the one that patients ask for by name. You can purchase BOTOX® from DoctorMedica.com and order online or you can phone Doctor Medica and complete your order by telephone and still receive wholesale prices. Help your patients relax their wrinkles for a smoother, more youthful look.
BOTOX® became popular for the treatment of wrinkles, with millions of patients opting for this minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment. You can use BOTOX® to reduce the look of your patient’s glabellar lines, which are lines on the forehead, or crow’s feet, which are lines that form around the eyes. However, doctors use BOTOX® for a wide range of other medical uses. One of the first medical uses for BOTOX® was to treat eye conditions such as strabismus, otherwise known as crossed eyes, and blepharospasm, which is uncontrollable blinking. Botulinum toxin has also been used to treat achalasia (spasm in the lower esophageal sphincter), cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, or stroke symptoms, cervical dystonia (spasmodic torticollis), bruxism (teeth grinding), incontinence, vaginismus (vaginal muscle spasms), vocal cord dystonia, allergic rhinitis, excessive salivation, and chronic migraine. BOTOX® has also become popular as a treatment for hyperhidrosis, which is excessive underarm sweating. Despite the wide range of possible uses for BOTOX®, doctors are frequently discovering new uses for the natural toxin.
BOTOX® is produced from purified Clostridium botulinum toxin A, the naturally-occurring toxin that causes botulism in higher doses. In smaller doses, BOTOX® has medical and cosmetic benefits as the toxin temporarily blocks the release of acetylcholine from nerves. In cosmetic applications, this reduces the activity of muscles below the wrinkles. Normally, your patient may constantly frown, smile, laugh, or make other facial expressions that cause the skin to wrinkle as they age. When you inject BOTOX® into their muscles, they are no longer able to scrunch up their skin in these problem areas, and wrinkles are reduced. While BOTOX® cannot treat all wrinkles, it can reduce the look of lines and wrinkles that are caused by muscles below the skin.
Although BOTOX® has been used in cosmetic and medical treatments for many years, it could still cause some side effects. The most common BOTOX® side effects are bruising or bleeding at the injection site, headache, tiredness, swelling, dry mouth or eyes, and neck pain, or rarely, eyelid ptosis (drooping), diplopia (double vision), or a drooping brow. Because BOTOX® causes muscle weakness, there is a chance BOTOX® injections could cause problems speaking, swallowing or breathing, and these BOTOX® side effects could last for several months. Rarely, the toxic effects of BOTOX® could spread from the injection site to cause muscle weakness, loss of strength, blurred vision, loss of voice or a voice change, or loss of bladder control. Patients who have a skin infection or who are allergic to botulism toxin should not get BOTOX® injections. Most patients only experience mild and temporary side effects from BOTOX® treatments.
BOTOX® affects muscles, so it is an appropriate treatment choice for facial lines and wrinkles that are caused by repetitive muscle movement, for example glabellar lines and crow’s feet. BOTOX® will not help wrinkles that are caused by skin dehydration alone. BOTOX® generally lasts about three to four months, but some patients may find that their treatment results last longer after a while, so they may need to return to your aesthetic clinic only about twice a year to maintain their smoother skin. As the most well-known and the most popular cosmetic injection, BOTOX® is a must-have for your aesthetic clinic.
