WHAT IS THE BOTULINUM TOXIN?
The botulinum toxin (Botox – Dysport) is a protein produced by a bacteria known as Clostridium botulinum which has the particular capability of blocking the neuromuscular transmission. Its use as a medicine began in 1960 by a group of ophthalmologist in the research level and in 1980 was finally used for the treatment of strabismus (crossed eyes) and for blepharomspams (involuntary forced blinking) both conditions generated by an abnormal muscle contraction. Since, more applications where discovered in the coming years including achalasia, sweeting and muscular spams due to cerebral palsy.
The cosmetic use of the botulinum toxin began in the late 1980’s for the treatment of the frown lines, since then its application in the dynamics of the face has spread importantly.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The toxin is capable to prevent muscular contraction by blocking the neuro-muscular transmission at the synapses level.
