Today, Botulinum toxin is a substance widely used for the production of medical and cosmetological remedies. Among the most popular brands are Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, Azzalure, Bocouture, etc. However, it wasn’t always like this, and in the minds of people, Botulinum was a poisonous toxin that could kill. The thing is that it is produced by a special kind of bacteria, Clostridium botulinum. In most cases, poisoning took place through food, especially meat products. Actually, it got its name ‘botulinum’ from the Latin word ‘botulus’, meaning ‘sausage’.

About Botulinum Toxin

Botulinum toxin is one of the strongest protein neurotoxins and the most dangerous organic poisons on the Earth known to science. When it gets inside the digestion system, the toxin causes severe toxic damage, called botulism. In nature, it occurs in humans, horses, birds, and so other animals.

According to the serovar pathogen, botulinum toxin is divided into groups named by Latin letters. Modern science distinguishes the following types: A, B, C1, C2, D, E, F, G, H. The first type A is the most widespread and the most frequently used for the production of medical drugs. Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and the other mentioned above brands consist of botulinum toxin type A.

History of Botulinum Toxin

The history of botulinum toxin as a useful remedy for medical purposes started in the XX century. During the times of World War II, there were conducted a lot of studies to investigate the properties of the toxin and use it as a biological weapon.

In medical practices, it started to be used at the end of the 70-ies by the American ophthalmologist Allan Scott. He has injected a dose of botulinum toxin into the orbital muscle of the eye to treat blepharospasm. This gave the substance great potential to treat diseases of muscle spasms.

Principle of Botulinum Toxin Action

This is a neurotoxin of the protein nature that aims at blocking the nerve system. When the substance gets inside the body, the molecules bind proteins on the membranes of the nerve tissues, responsible for receiving the nerve signal from the brain. As a result, the nerve becomes insensitive, unable to control, contract, and move the muscles. When it occurs as a result of food poisoning, the victim becomes paralyzed and mainly dies due to oxygen deficiency as lungs are paralyzed, and the person cannot breathe.

Do botulinum Botox and other brands of the kind work the same? The answer is yes. The difference is that in these medications, the substance is purified and refined. Moreover, the doctor injects a small dose into the skin tissues so that it has a local effect and cannot cause general paralysis or death. Thus, for example, Botox injections work on the superficial level, temporarily blocking the nerve endings.

The effect appears gradually during the first two weeks after the injection. The maximum effect is obtained approximately until the second month. After that, the impact of the toxin weakens, new nerve endings grow, and until the end of the fourth-sixth month, the muscles renew their ability to contact completely. The overall period depends on the individual peculiarities of the organism, injected dose, and patient’s action after the procedure.
