Everything you need to know about Botox and its Implications

 In Botox

What is Botox?

Botox is a drug prepared from the bacterial toxin botulin. It is used for medicinal purposes to treat certain muscular conditions specifically and to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. By doing this, years of facial expressions as well as lines formed from smiling, frowning, etc. will become relaxed and consequently, smoothen out.

Origin of Botox:

The bacterium botulin is usually founded within the intestinal tracts of mammals. It can also be found in certain fish as well as the gills and organs of crabs and other mollusks. Once the toxin is derived from the source, it is then refined to the medical drug used in clinics. Neurotics target the nervous system, disrupting the signaling processes that allow neurons to communicate effectively. This, in turn, paralyzes the facial muscles which consequently, smoothes out wrinkles and gives patients a younger looking appearance.
