The Botox Revolution
Botox, which is actually combination of a neurotoxin and protein, first came to the attention of medical science in 1897. It naturally occurred in fatty meats; particularly sausage incorrectly processed, and was discovered and first used for medical purposes by a variety of different physicians and scientists until the early part of the 1900s. It wasn’t until 1949 that it was discovered that the Botulinum toxin was able to actually block neuromuscular transmission.
Initially this blocking ability was used to correct muscle problems such as crossed eyes and excessive blinking. By injecting the Botulinum toxin type A into patients it was also found treat muscle spasms as well as prevent excessive sweating.
Today, Botox is used in a variety of different types of cosmetic procedures by surgeons providing plastic surgery in Beverly Hills. This includes injecting into muscle groups around the mouth, across the forehead and around the eyes to relax the muscles by blocking the messages transmitted by the nerves, allowing the skin to look smooth and unlined.
