What is Botox?
Botox is a drug that weakens or paralyzes muscle. In small doses, it can reduce skin wrinkles and help treat some medical conditions. Botox is a protein made from Botulinum toxin, which the bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces. This is the same toxin that causes botulism. Botox is a toxin, but when doctors use it correctly and in small doses, it can have benefits. It has both cosmetic and medical uses. As a cosmetic treatment, Botox injections can reduce the appearance of skin wrinkles. Also, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved it as a treatment for various health issues, including eyelid spasms, excessive sweating, some bladder disorders, and migraine.
…when Botox is appropriately used in a therapeutic context, it is safe and has few side effects, the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology report. Manufacturers make Botox injections with very small doses of Botulinum toxin. The drug can temporarily paralyze muscles, which can benefit people with various muscle or nerve disorders.
- Commercial preparations of Botulinum toxin include:
- onabotulinumtoxin A (Botox)
- abobotulinumtoxin A (Dysport)
- incobotulinumtoxin A (Xeomin)
- rimabotulinumtoxin B (Myobloc)
- prabotulinumtoxin A (Jeuveau)
People casually use the term “Botox” to describe all of these products, though Botox is a registered trademark that one company owns.
How does it work?
Botox is a neurotoxin. These substances target the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signaling processes that stimulate muscle contraction. This is how the drug causes temporary muscle paralysis.
In order for any muscle to contract, the nerves release a chemical messenger called acetylcholine at the junction where nerve endings meet muscle cells. Acetylcholine attaches to receptors on the muscle cells and causes the cells to contract, or shorten. Botox injections prevent the release of acetylcholine, which stops the muscle cells from contracting. In this way, the toxin helps the muscles to become less stiff.
Cosmetic uses :The primary use of Botox is reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles.
According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Botox injections are the most popular cosmetic procedure nationwide. In 2016, over 7 million people had Botox treatments.
The effects are temporary, lasting 3–12 months, depending on the type of treatment.
People often request the injections in the following areas of the face:
- wrinkles between the eyebrows, called frown lines, glabellar lines, or elevens
- wrinkles around the eyes, known as crow’s feet
- horizontal creases in the forehead
- lines at the corners of the mouth
- “cobblestone” skin on the chin
There are also medical uses for Botox too.
What is Dysport?
After Botox was launched, Dysport was launched to help with wrinkles and serves in over 60 countries worldwide. In 2009, the FDA approved Dysport for use in the United States. Since then, it’s been proven to be an effective, non-invasive treatment for wrinkles, and fine lines. Both Botox and Dysport had medical uses before approval for cosmetic use.
Botulinum Type A is Dysport’s active ingredient, like Botox. Once injected, Dysport disables the nerves around the injection site. This limits muscle movement, relaxing the area and smoothing out the skin.
Dysport and Botox are non-invasive procedures that take less than 30 minutes in some cases. It is common for patients to have their injectable on their lunch break.
You should always ensure that you are only having injections with a certified medical professional. He or she will advise you of the following:
- Avoiding alcohol for at least 48 hours.
- Do not massage your face or injection areas to avoid spreading the neuromodulator to other parts of the face.
- Avoiding exercise or strenuous activity for at least 4 hours.
- Avoiding direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours.
- Do not lay down for 3 hours after
- Over the next few days, you’ll start to see changes in your wrinkles and overall look.
Clients ask if there is any difference between Botox and Dysport.
In a 2019 study, 88% of patients were extremely satisfied with the results with Dysport after just two weeks. Dysport lasts between 3 to 4 months needing additional treatments to keep the great results.
