Botox...I heard this name for several times , sometimes in tv beauty advertising, others in magazine, but actually I don't know exactly what botox is it?
Today I saw it again in yahoo home pages and this time I search it more deeply what it is.
I found it that Botox is the brand name of a toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, In large amounts, this toxin can cause botulism (Botulism is a rare but serious illness that causes paralysis of muscles), which you probably associate with food poisoning. (Food poisoning is a common, yet distressing and sometimes life-threatening problem for millions of people )...yeah stress again...
Despite the fact that one of the most serious complications of botulism is paralysis, scientists have discovered a way to use it to human advantage. Small, diluted amounts can be directly injected into specific muscles causing controlled weakening of the muscles.
The FDA approved such usage in the late 1980s upon the discovery that Botox could stop ailments like blepharospasm (uncontrolled blinking) and strabismus (lazy eye). Cosmetic physicians have been using Botox for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. In April 2002, Botox gained FDA approval for treatment of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows - called glabellar lines.
However, Botox is often used for other areas of the face as well. In this site I also read that how does botox works...
It is..... Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
It is most often used on forehead lines, crow's feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.
I think it is enough for me to know what botox is it...but if we have a healthy life, eat healthy food and can make our life balance , so we can prevent our wrinkle too...maybe..
