The discovery of BOTOX

BOTOX, is actually a potent neurotoxin (Botulinum Toxin Type A) It causes muscle paralysis   ,which decreases muscle contraction and results in less expression lines.

Now for some history…in 1988 an ophthalmologist and her dermatologist husband discovered the aesthetic benefits of this toxin by accident. One of the ophthalmologists patients suffered from blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelid muscles). BOTOX was being used treat her blepharospasm.

The patient asked her to inject the area between her eye. This was not part of the treatment as this glabellar area was not spasming. However the doctor botoxed her and the dermatologist husband noticed how it softened her frown lines. He had many patients with frown lines that he was treating unsuccessfully. So he tried his wife’s BOTOX on them…and the rest they say…is history…
