A Neuromodulator
Botox has been safely used for uncontrollable eyelid movements and muscle spasms of the hands and neck for close to 30 years. However, the cosmetic use of Botox was pioneered by Drs. Alastair and Jean Carruthers in 1982. Today, Botox is the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in North America.
This treatment inhibits nerve impulses that cause everything from wrinkles (due to repetitive facial actions), to stimulating sweat glands and migraine. Given the direct relationship of these nerve impulses to the direct relationship of these nerve impulses to the skin, it's not surprising to see the close relationship between Botox and cosmetic dermatology.
Botox for Lines and Creases
When we frown, blink or squint, we gather skin tissue in a fold. Over time, this can cause a chronic crease that results in crow's feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines. Often, this produces a frustrated, even angry expression.
Because certain muscles are used when twitching or frowning, injecting these muscles with safe, minute doses of Botox stops the repetitive muscular action. Once this is inhibited, existing creases fade and new ones are prevented. This treatment also shows remarkable results in brow elevation. It can widen the eye area and give you an open, refreshed appearance.
Botox for Excessive Sweating
Sweat glands require a nerve impulse to activate. Without this stimulation, they won't secrete. By injecting Botox into problem areas such as underarms, hands and feet, the related nerve impulse is prevented from reaching the sweat gland. This, in turn, should stop sweat production for approximately 5 to 10 months. This treatment has a much lower complication rate than other more invasive surgical procedures and individuals can immediately return to normal activities.
