What Is Botox?
Since it was first used to treat the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, over 15 years ago, Botox has become one of the world’s most popular cosmetic procedures, with millions of people being treated every year. Botox is the product name for injections containing a refined form of botulinum toxin known as Type A.
When injected into a muscle, the toxin blocks the nerve impulses that would normally cause that muscle to contract. The resulting absence or reduction of muscle contraction leaves the skin smoother and lends a more relaxed appearance to the patient’s facial feature. Botox works on the premise that if it can’t move, it can’t wrinkle.
As we get older and lose elasticity in the skin, a permanent crease can form leaving a wrinkle that is noticeable even without muscle contraction.
The Different Botox Products
As a direct result of its popularity many companies are now producing what they claim to be botox. These botox products may not have undergone extensive testing for safety and quality like those produced by Allergan for example. The Botox produced by Allergan is FDA approved. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) is an agency of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, one of the United States federal executive departments.
The FDA is responsible for protecting and promoting public health through the regulation and supervision of pharmaceutical drugs. At Natura we only use Botox manufacture by Allergan.
