Botox is a natural and purified protein extracted from bacterial secretion using state-of-the-art technology. It functions as a blocker of nerve conduction.
Generally, the brain transmits signals of chemical electrodes to the muscles through nerves using acetylcholine, causing muscle contraction and movement. The muscles will become tense for over-activeness if excessive acetylcholine is released. Botox can block the nerve endings from releasing acetylcholine, and this approach has been adopted by medical practitioners for relaxing and paralyzing the muscles.
Approved by the U.S. FDA for cosmetic treatments, Botox has been used by the industry for more than 14 years, benefiting more than 2 million patients. Its efficacy and safety have been affirmed.
