London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 13, 2009 -- âBotox clinics are popping up all over the country, helping clients venture back a few years into their past. Botox is the A hub for beauty, unblemished skin, and eternal youth. Now a dayâs most of the senior film stars were using Botox to keep their porcelain skin wrinkle free. Botox is a type of toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. If you're thinking that something sounds familiar about this substance, that's because this bacterium is the same one that causes botulism, or food poisoning. It's also the same bacterium that some countries stockpile as a bacterial weapon. You might be wondering if this is a substance you would want injected into your face. Although Botox has been used for other conditions in the past such as neck spasms, cranial nerve disorders and eye spasms, when the FDA finally approved Botox to be used to treat wrinkles, the popularity of the toxin rose tremendouslyâ says Mr. Salman Noor of cosmedocs.co.uk.
He added that, â Every year in the United States, millions of men and women undergo one or more cosmetic procedures that in some way enhance or change their appearance. From chemical peels to nose reconstruction to eyelid tucks, dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and other cosmetic surgeons across the country are reshaping the way Americans look, and as a result, how they feel about themÂselves. Thanks to the wonders of medical technology, injecting Botox into the face isn't only possible, it's being done thousands of times a day, and safely. In the late 1970s, scientists discovered that botulinum toxin, when it was diluted to a great degree, had some very positive characteristics, properties that could bring significant relief to thousands of people who had specific neuromuscular problems throughout the body. And after years of science and serendipity, experts discovered that botulinum toxin A (the bacterium has eight different toxins, or serotypes, each named for a leter of the alphabet) has cosmetic uses as well, especially when it comes to getting rid of wrinkles in the upper third of the facethat is, along the forehead and at the outer corners of the eyes. If you're familiar with the concept of homeopathy, you'll see a similarity with Botox.â
Speaking on the move, Mr. Salman Noor said, âIn homeopathy, a substance sometimes one that is poisonous when taken at regular strength, such as arsenicis diluted to such a tremendous degree that when it is finally ingested, it is completely safe. Botaulinum toxin is extremely potent, but Botox injections contain a greatly diluted form of the toxin, rendering the injection safe yet effectiveâ
