What Does Botox Exactly Do? Learn How Botox Works

If you are thinking about getting Botox, but haven't done it yet because you just don't know how Botox works, this article is for you. When you're done, you'll know how Botox works, what Botox does, and what Botox can't do.

Botox is a protein. It is an extremely small amount of an extremely purified protein. There are absolutely no bacteria in a vial of Botox, NONE. The confusion has to do with how Botox is made. The disease, botulism, is caused by bacteria that create large amounts of 7 different proteins at the same time. These 7 proteins are labeled A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. To know more about botox online training visit https://iaaesthetics.com/.

Only proteins A and B have any medical use. When Botox is created, protein "A" is extracted, purified, and precisely measured. A vial of Botox has approximately 5 billionths of a gram of this highly purified protein. When the doctor receives the bottle of Botox, it appears empty. Water is added to the vial so that the protein can be drawn into a syringe and injected.

So what happens when Botox is injected? The Botox extends about 1 cm. Any extension beyond 1 cm is so small that it has very little chance of doing anything. The protein is then absorbed into nerves 1 cm from the injection site. Over the next 15 minutes, the Botox protein, now inside the nerve, finds another protein called SNAP-25, attaches itself to it, and dissolves it.
