Botulinum toxin Type A is a drug made from a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin. A neurotoxin is a substance that changes the form or working of the nerves. BTX-A is used to treat special conditions of the muscles and is used to superficially removes wrinkles by immobilizing the muscles for a brief period of time during the process.

BTX-A has been used for a long time, spanning over 50 years. Its initial uses were for lazy eye, inability to move the eyelids in certain ways, and twisted neck.

In 2002, Botulinum toxin Type A was approved for improving and relaxing frown lines in the region between the eyes on the forehead and has seen success in its usage on over 11 million patients judging from the estimation given by the Allergan Corporation.

DISADVANTAGES OF BTX-A:

1) Temporary results: the treatments are usually temporary in nature, lasting between 2 – 8 months.
Patients will then have to return to receive top-up injections and this mounts costs.

2) Pain: it can be painful to some patients as a result of the needles.

3) Bruising: there will likely be bruising around the site of the injections but it will not last more than a day or two.

HOW IS BTX-A APPLIED:

• During the Botulinum toxin Type A Procedure, a patient is placed in a kind of raised position on the exam table.

• The areas to be injected are cleaned with a nonalcoholic cleanser. The BTX-A is then injected into the desired specific areas.

RISKS:

• The risks involved with Botulinum toxin Type A treatment are very minor.

• The real likely risks are headache, pain, and flu-like ailments. In rare certain cases though, there may be a drooping lid.

• BTX-A is also not recommended for a pregnant patient or a patient who is allergic to eggs.

The following are the many ways Botulinum toxin Type A can be successfully used:

1) ANTI-AGEING:

Botulinum toxin Type A also helps maintain a fine facial structure and texture owing to its anti-ageing properties made possible by the botulinum toxin, this helps keep a well nurtured face, when it is applied, BTX-A relaxes muscles, which prevents the creasing of the skin that is responsible for causing wrinkles.

2) SCAR CORRECTION:

BTX-A has been shown to improve scars but note should be taken as to when Botulinum toxin Type A is to be applied. It should be applied best at the time of closing the wound to allow the tissues to heal smoothly by preventing micro movements of related tissues.

3) HYPERHIDROSIS:

This is a situation whereby a person sweats excessively in certain body parts like the underarm, hands, feet etc. Research has shown that BTX-A can be used in treating excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, head and face and some other related small body areas (including under the breast).

When used to treat this excessive sweating of some body parts, Botulinum toxin Type A has been shown to result in over 81-86% decrease in sweating.

Results are usually noticed from 2 to 4 days after treatment with BTX-A. However, the full effects of the treatment can be observed within two weeks.

4) ALOPECIA:

This is a kind of loss of hair that occurs when your body’s immune system attacks the hair sac. By applying Botulinum toxin Type A to the scalp, it relaxes the muscles and this strengthens blood flow and increase the movement of nutrients to the hair, however, it appears that this is only more effective if the hair sac is not completely destroyed and still has some proof of ‘life’ in it.

5) MIGRAINE HEADACHES:

Botulinum toxin Type A is also approved for treating of migraine.

A migraine is a severe, type of headache, that usually affects one side of the head. Most of the times, it is accompanied by nausea, vomiting, photophobia and visual disturbances.

BTX-A will likely not cure the migraines; however, it may offer relief from the severe pain it causes.

Current applications also show that Botulinum toxin Type A is now applied in Stem Cell therapy, making it easy and unnecessary to undergo a Facelift Surgery.
