BOTTOX

(OnabotulinumtoxinA), also called botulinum toxin type A, is made from the bacteria that causes botulism. Botulinum toxin blocks nerve activity in the muscles. Mechanism:  BOTTOX temporarily blocks acetylcholine release by specific proteolysis of SNAP-25. By cleaving SNAP-25, BOTOX prevents the affected terminals from Botox stimulating muscle contraction. BOTOX does not affect the synthesis or storage of acetylcholine or the conduction of electrical signals along the nerve terminal.Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and its function lasts from 3 to 18 months. Aspirin and blood thinners should be stopped one week before treatment to reduce bruising.
