How Do Neurotoxins Work?

Everyone knows that neurotoxins, such as Botox, are used to treat wrinkles cosmetically, but do you know how they actually work? This treatment is performed by injecting a neurotoxin called Clostridium botulinum – which is known to cause botulism – into the skin. This may sound scary, but it does not have to be. Doctors have been using this neurotoxin to do wonderful things.

Neurotoxins work in a cosmetic capacity by temporarily paralyzing muscles in the skin. When paralyzed, these muscles will reduce fine lines and wrinkles. A single gram of can kill as many as one million people but, when used correctly, it can help make you look magnificent. It is important to note that these treatments are not permanent and your facial muscles will eventually return to normal. In addition to being used for cosmetic purposes, doctors have been using neurotoxins to treat chronic migraines, overactive bladder, incontinence, and neck and shoulder spasms.
