BOTOX- FACIAL EXPRESSION WRINKLES TREATMENT,
Botox-Dysport-Azzalure – are commercial names for botulinum toxin type A, produced by Clostridium Botulinum.
Botulinum toxin is a tropism neurotoxin for acetylcholine molecules in the neuromotor plate; therefore, injected into the muscles prevents the nerves from releasing acetylcholine, which is essential in transmitting the nerve impulse from the nerve to the muscle cell.
The result is muscle weakness for a temporary period, until the nerves develop other new terminations that communicate with the muscles.
