Botox is usually injected is the appropriate quantities to the muscles themselves. The injection then works through interrupting the way nerve signals are transmitted consequently hindering the transmission. The interruption of nerve signal transmission temporarily weakens the affected muscles hence making the muscles unable to contract. As a result of the muscles being unable to contract, the skin on top of these muscles becomes flattened thus making the skin stretch. This directly affects all the lines appearing on the skin on top of the particular muscles with the lines being eliminated since the skin stretches effectively. The most important aspect of this process is ensuring that the quantities used are appropriate since using more than the necessary quantities can cause harm while using too little quantity might not have the desired effects. The injection takes just a few minutes and it is performed using a thin needle to the particular muscle since and hence it is almost painless.
There are various other alternatives and cosmetics which are known to have almost similar effect with Botox mainly because they are made using Botulinum toxin A. some of the known ones are Myobloc, Dysport and Pure Tox amongst others. There are also cheaper alternatives such as lactic acids and glycolic. Therefore, it is evident that Botox is a popular and effective injection which enables people to look younger by eliminating wrinkles and other defects on the face.
