Botox – Your Guide To Facial Paralysis Treatments
Botox (botulinum toxin) is an artificial neurotoxin protein produced by a bacterium Clostridia botulinum. It prevents the release of neurotransmitter acetylcholinesterase in the neuromuscular junctions by paralyzing the muscle fibers and thus resulting in permanent flaccid paralysis of muscle groups. The bacterium that causes botulism infects the human body through the bites of insects and other animals infected with this condition. There are various types of Botox available in the market. The most commonly used Botox products are the Botox injections and the Botox treatments for the face. Botox injections are effective in the treatment of facial paralysis but it is not effective in the case of limb paralysis.Learn more at Brentwood Botox.
The botulinic toxin is an artificial neurotoxin protein produced by a bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. It causes severe flaccidity paralysis by blocking the transmission of electrical impulses between nerve cells in muscle groups. Infection of the bacteria that cause botulism causes the paralytic condition botulism. The main symptoms of botulism include pain in or around the injection site, bluish discoloration of the skin, nausea and vomiting, and decreased sweating. However, these symptoms do not occur after Botox treatments for the face. The most common type of Botox injections is the use of botulinum toxin A or botulinum toxin B.
Botulinum toxin A and botulinum toxin B can be injected into muscles as a single or in a series. Injections are most effective in treating patients suffering from facial paralysis. Injections of Botox are not effective in the treatment of limb paralysis because this type of paralysis is caused by muscle weakness or spasms in the limbs, not muscle weakness or spasms in the facial muscles. However, injections of botulinum toxin A and botulinum toxin B have proved effective in the treatment of facial paralysis.
