What is Botox®?
Botox® , also known as “Botulinum toxin”, is a neurotoxic protein that derives from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Clostridium botulinum is found in several natural settings such as lakes, soil, and aquatic sediments. The bacteria, as one would expect from a botox forerunner, is fairly hard to kill and can even survive the temperature of boiling water at sea level. Sound like something that could combat the aging properties in your skin and help you appear to stand the test of time? It’s because it is!
The botox treatment is most popular for its cosmetic purpose but it can be used medically as well. It works best between the ages of 18 and 65 Regarding its cosmetic use, which PHRC Houston provides, the treatment is used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles, reduce the amount of sweat one produces on the face, aid in retaining firmness, diminish the appearance of laugh lines, fix elasticity in the skin, fix crows feet and many other signs of aging. The treatment is injected into the skin in various areas in individualized quantities. This injection blocks the nerve signals to certain muscles, therefore reducing signs of aging in your appearance.
How Long Does Botox® Last?
Once a patient has received botox injections, it takes anywhere from 7-14 days to take on its full affect. Once it has, the treatment should last three to six months. Signs of aging are visibly reduced however, you will start to see signs of the botox wearing off. When this happens, it’s time for another treatment. These muscles end up diminishing in appearance because with each treatment, they are shrinking.
