WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE 15 YEARS LATER…………….
From those who swear by it to those who have sworn off of it, BOTOX is a controversial topic in Bollywood as well as in Hollywood. There was a time when BOTOX was treated like Voldemort: Everyone knew it had magical powers, but no one said its name. Today BOTOX is well accepted treatment in field of aesthetics due to its immediate result. BOTOX is actually a commercial brand name of a drug. It is administered through injection. It contains a substance called BOTULINUM TOXIN, which is made from a neurotoxin produced by bacteria called clostridium botulinum. A few other species from clostridium family also produce this toxin. It is the most lethal toxin known to man, one gram could be enough to kill one million people.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND BOTOX
A muscle contracts when a nerve sends it a signal to do so. The signal travels to the end of the nerve and reaches a gap between the nerve and the muscle referred to as the neuromuscular junction. Once the signal reaches a gap between the nerve and the muscles referred to as the neuromuscular junction. Once the signal reaches that point, a chemical named acetylcholine is released from the end of the nerve and binds to receptors on the muscle. This starts a series of reactions that causes the muscles to contract. BOTOX blocks the muscles acetylcholine receptors. when the muscles cannot detect acetylcholine, no contraction occurs. Basically ,the muscle becomes paralyzed because it cannot receive the signal for movement ,even though there is no damage to it or to the nerves. This blockage of acetylcholine cannot be reversed and will begin 48 hours upon injection of the drug.

IS THIS THE PERMANENT SOLUTION FOR AGING,FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
- Absolutely No; the blocked acetylcholine receptors can never be unblocked permanently. Once new receptor develop,acetylcholine will be detected again and muscle contraction will resume.
