BOTOX LINES & WRINKLES

FROM CELEBRITIES TO HOUSEWIVES AND EVEN MEN BOTOX IS NOW AS POPULAR AS HAVING YOUR TEETH WHITENED

Botox is a neurotoxin. These substances target the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signaling processes that stimulate muscle contraction. This is how the drug causes temporary muscle paralysis.

In order for any muscle to contract, the nerves release a chemical messenger called acetylcholine at the junction where nerve endings meet muscle cells. Acetylcholine attaches to receptors on the muscle cells and causes the cells to contract, or shorten.

Botox injections prevent the release of acetylcholine, which stops the muscle cells from contracting. In this way, the toxin helps the muscles to become less stiff.

Cosmetic uses

The primary use of Botox is reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles.

According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Botox injections are the most popular cosmetic procedure nationwide. In 2016, over 7 million people had Botox treatments.

The effects are temporary, lasting 3–12 months, depending on the type of treatment.

People often request the injections in the following areas of the face:

  • wrinkles between the eyebrows, called frown lines, glabellar lines, or elevens
  • wrinkles around the eyes, known as crow’s feet
  • horizontal creases in the forehead
  • lines at the corners of the mouth
