Botox Cosmetic is a unique neurotoxin neuro-modulator that contains a small amount of highly purified botulinum toxin protein derived from the bacterium, clostridium botulinum. Botox Cosmetic is a form of a purified protein which is created from a bacteria, that like Penicillin. Also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, this product was approved by the FDA in 1989. Allergens Botox Cosmetic product has been well established for safety and efficiency through a multiple step placebo-controlled trials. Therefore, since 1989 Botox Cosmetic have generated a substantial amount of long term safety data. Botox cosmetic is used to treat wrinkles and fine lines that have been caused by repeated muscle movement of the facial muscles.
Botox Cosmetic is injected with a tiny insulin needle into different areas of the facial muscle which blocks neuromuscular transmission of motor nerve terminal by inhibiting the release of acetycholine. This produces partial chemical denervation of the muscles promoting muscle relaxation. When the muscles can no longer contract, the skin becomes flat and the lines diminish. This results in smoother, younger looking skin. Botox cosmetic exhibits a targeted effect so it has minimal migration from the point of injection. It has a rapid onset of action having long lasting treatment effects.
Clients biggest concern when being treated with Botox cosmetic is being stuck with the “frozen look” or "paralyzed look" of the face. With a properly trained and skilled injector the undesirable effects should not happen. Having an injector understand desirable vs undesirable effects is critical. Jodie at SkinDiva Injection Artistry is very conservative when injecting Botox Cosmetic. She has been trained in MD Codes for landmarking when injecting Botox. Using these MD Codes when injecting Botox helps Jodie achieve an appropriate aesthetic result for her patients by working with the natural structure and beauty of facial features, therefore enhancing ones natural features. Targeting dynamic lines and understanding the indirect benefits to facial appearance is essential.
Example, treating the frown lines using the MD Code injection technique can indirectly affect the brow, producing a lifting effect. It can also give the eye a brighter more energetic look. Injecting too much in one area or in the wrong area can result in eyelid or brow ptosis (droopy eyelid).
WARNING: Found a better deal? "Bargain Botox" is often over diluted with Normal Saline therefore delivering fewer units of Botox Cosmetic than needed in turn not providing the desired results.
Specific muscle groups have unique characteristics and strength therefore require different units of Botox Cosmetic. Depending on the severity of lines/creases and the desired level of correction, the number of Botox units needed will vary. Further discussion of what each client will require will be discussed during the consultation.
