How Do Neurotoxins Work? Neurotoxins are a group of substances that destroy nerve tissue. They paralyze the ability of nerve cells (neurons) to transfer signals via the synapses. As a result of neurotoxins intoxication, a human being loses control of the body parts, and can even die. Neurotoxins are very dangerous for humans in high concentrations. The most frequently used neurotoxin is alcohol. However, in small doses neurotoxins can be used to help. For example, a microdose of neurotoxin can relax a muscle spasm and calm down the migraine. In the beauty industry, people use microdoses of botulotoxin. With age, people have got wrinkles on the moving parts of the face: near the external eye corner, between and above the eyebrows, and so on. Underskin injections of botulotoxin paralyze the facial muscles, they stop moving and the wrinkles get smoother, and the face looks younger. What Do Winkle Relaxers Have in Common? There are several popular wrinkle relaxer brands on the market. T [Read more]

Botox is an undeniably effective treatment for facial wrinkles, folds, and lines. It has been proven to significantly reduce the formation of new lines and wrinkles become with sustained injections. In addition, Botox has several long-term effects that contribute to the overall self-satisfaction by patients who choose to undergo this treatment. It is important to gauge how long Botox lasts to prepare for how often maintenance treatments are necessary, to preserve and extend its effects. What is Botox? Botox is a brand of neurotoxin injectable used to reduce signs of aging by inhibiting and suspending targeted muscles from contracting and forming lines, wrinkles, and folds. It is also known as Onobotulinum toxin A, derived from the neurotoxin Clostridium botulinum. Despite being dubbed as the deadliest toxin in the world, this particular type of botulinum toxin has numerous medical and scientific applications. In 2002, it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration to be a saf [Read more]
Cute pig wondering if dermal fillers are vegan.
As the popularity of the vegan lifestyle and of minimally invasive cosmetic treatments grows, it can only lead to one thing: more patient inquiries regarding vegan-friendly cosmetic injections. While you may be an expert at restoring youth and beauty, these lifestyle questions can be difficult to address. Read on to find out whether top brand names like Juvederm, Restylane, Botox, and more fit the bill. What makes a product vegan? Two main factors determine if a product is vegan: its ingredients and its testing. Ingredients For a product to be considered vegan, it must contain no animal products and no ingredients derived from animals. A vegan individual does not consume meat, eggs, dairy or other products obtained from animals and also does not wear leather, fur or wool. Product testing For a product to be considered vegan, it must not be tested on animals. While, legally, a product can be labelled as vegan if it does not contain animal ingredients, most vegans pr [Read more]
Woman receiving injection to contour jawline
Introduction Patients seeking facial rejuvenation often present with prominent nasolabial folds, marionette lines, perioral lines, loss of volume to the lips, and changes along the jawline. The patient’s appearance is significantly affected by the loss of definition along the mandibular border. A contoured jawline is often seen as indicative of a more youthful appearance. Aging is a natural phenomenon and gravitational forces, increased tissue laxity, and progressive bone resorption all play a role in the facial manifestations. Atrophy and resorption of the malar, submalar, and buccal fat pads lead to volume loss in the midface. With aging, the jawline’s shape becomes less aesthetically appealing. As a result, there has been a significant increase in the number of non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures available to efficiently contour the jawline and restore lost facial volume. Patient Analysis Dr. Kate Goldie, an aesthetic practitioner, utilizes a full-face con [Read more]
doctor storing dysport xeomin and other botulinums
Storing Xeomin and Bocouture If you use an alternative brand of botulinum toxin, such as Xeomin or its cosmetic version Bocouture, we have good news! These products do not require refrigeration normally and may last longer than the manufacturer suggests. Merz suggests that Xeomin can be used up to 36 months after its manufacturer date, but research suggests that, after 48 months in the refrigerator or stored at up to 25° C, the neurotoxin is just as effective. Additionally, when they tested Xeomin that had been stored for 18 months at 30° C and six months at 40° C, the neurotoxin was still stable. Even at 60° C for one month and 80° C for five days, Xeomin still showed at least partial activity.  According to Merz, reconistituted Xeomin or Bocouture can be placed in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. However, researchers believe that this too may be unnecessarily conservative. After leaving Xeomin solution at room [Read more]
Difference Between Botox and Dysport
Both Dysport and Botox contain Botulinum Toxin In 2009, a new competitor for Botox was approved for the US market, under the brand Dysport (abobotulinumtoxinA). Like Botox, Dysport is a botulinum toxin treatment indicated for wrinkle correction as well as certain movement disorders like spasticity and cervical dystonia. However, these two botulinum neurotoxin preparations were manufactured and purified via distinct, proprietary manufacturing processes. As such, Dysport and Botox have different properties in terms of duration of results, diffusion, adverse event profile, and potency. Botox (onabotulinumtoxin a) is primarily known as a cosmetic injectable that treats wrinkles like glabellar lines; however, it has many more therapeutic uses. As a neurotoxin, it causes chemical denervation in cholinergic neurons, thus impacting signal transmission between these nerves to other cells. It is for this reason that Botox has many therapeutic applications. For instance, Botox is indicated in t [Read more]
Buy Botox 50U Online From Medica Depot at low cost
What is Botox and Botox Cosmetic? Botox has become a household name due to its extensive safety record, history of efficacy, and widespread use. Despite popular belief, “Botox” is not a generic name for botulinum toxin; rather, Botox is the name of the specific industry-leading product produced by Allergan. Botox Cosmetic is the preparation that is used for cosmetic purposes, whereas the product that is simply called Botox is used for treating neuromuscular disorders. Botox Cosmetic is available in 50-unit and 100-unit sterile vials of Clostridium botulinum toxin type A; this toxin comes in a vacuum-dried form without a preservative. One Allergan Unit corresponds to the calculated median lethal dose (LD50) in mice. As a neurotoxin, Botox Cosmetic is an excellent product for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles, as it relaxes the subcutaneous muscles. Treatments take just a few minutes and it is a great way to incentivize new clients. Where to buy [Read more]

Botox and other botulinum toxins have storage conditions specified on their packaging. This ensures that the product is safe and potent when it is used. However, things do not always go as planned. Maybe you mixed up a solution only to have a no-show patient, over-purchased in order to receive a volume discount, or your courier left a box on your doorstep in a heat wave. In these situations, you may find yourself throwing away hundreds of dollars worth of botulinum toxin. What a huge waste! The good news is, research suggests that the manufacturer's storage recommendations may be far too conservative. A few studies have looked into the effectiveness of different brands of botulinum toxins and found that they are viable long past the times recommended. Knowing this can save you money, reduce waste and help you take advantage of sales and volume discounts when purchasing your medical supplies. Storing Botox Botox is the most popular cosmetic injectable in the U.S. and around the world [Read more]
