How Does Botox Work?

Botox Injections is used in a variety of diseases in which a patient is suffering from a chronic disease or has to deal with pain that is not responding well to conventional treatments. Botox injections have also proven to be effective in treating some cosmetic conditions and disorders. These injections have also been known to be effective for treating a variety of other ailments and conditions such as:

Botulinum Toxin is a toxic protein manufactured by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. It inhibits the release of acetylcholine in the nerve endings of the neuromuscular juncture, thereby causing flaccid paralysis to occur. This condition results from muscle weakness due to muscle spasms and in some cases it may be accompanied by nausea. Infection with this bacterium leads to the condition botulism. It can lead to serious complications if the patient is not treated quickly.

This condition is usually caused by bacteria that infect the surface of the skin and causes inflammation. There is an inflammation due to excessive inflammation, or due to infection of the dermis or epidermis. When the skin loses its elasticity, a fine needle or an injection of Botox can be given to the affected area to temporarily reduce the skin’s production of collagen and elastin. Since there are not many nutrients available to the body when you are in a state of inflammation, the result is that the skin tightens up and takes on a lumpy appearance. Injection therapy has been found to be effective in reducing both the size and thickness of skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Botox injections in Tacoma WA are also effective in treating a wide range of facial expressions and postures that patients experience. A doctor might inject Botox into a patient to temporarily paralyze muscles to prevent facial expressions such as squinting, laughing, frowning, or crying. These expressions may be caused by many reasons. For example, the muscles in the upper jaw may become inactive from arthritis or a build up of fluid in the jaw area. The muscles of the face may become stiff and tight due to excessive facial expressions when a person is undergoing stress. Botox injections can also be given to a patient in a surgical setting to control excessive sweating.

The muscles of a patient’s face may contract or expand excessively, causing drooping and sagging. The drooping in the cheeks may occur during sleep, and this may lead to sagging of the face that may make the nose appear smaller than normal. Botox injections can be injected directly under the eyes to reduce the drooping that may occur due to aging. Botox injections can also be used in conjunction with laser resurfacing to treat various areas of the face in order to remove excess skin or age spots.

Some patients may have facial expressions due to eye problems such as strabismus. This causes movement of one eye to the opposite side of the head while the other eye stays still. The condition is normally caused by an abnormal curvature of the cornea. During this condition, the doctor will inject Botox in the area of the eye that is out of balance and causes the patient to blink rapidly or too close his/her eyes.
