Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. When injected into a muscle, Botox blocks the release of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter is responsible for telling muscles to contract. By blocking its release, the muscle is unable to contract, resulting in temporary paralysis. The effects of Botox usually last for three to four months. The treated area may continue to improve for up to six months, as the muscle slowly regains its ability to contract. Botox is most commonly used to treat two conditions:
1. Cervical dystonia – a condition that causes the neck muscles to contract involuntarily, resulting in abnormal head positioning and neck pain
2. Blepharospasm – a condition that causes the muscles around the eye to contract involuntarily, resulting in abnormal eye positioning and blinking
Botox is also commonly used for cosmetic purposes to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles, such as the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.
