How does the Botox Treatments work? – Dr. Mary Lupo
Botox works for the frown lines between the eyebrows they are called the glabella frown lines and are nicknamed the elevens because usually there a two of them. Some people have one and some have four or five it just depends on how the muscles work.
How does Botox work?
It blocks the neurochemical attaching to the receptor at the muscle. So, the nerve releases a neurochemical called the acetylcholine that crosses the neuromuscular junction attaches to muscle receptor and makes the muscles twitch.
What Botox and other neuromodulators do is block the ability the neurotransmitting chemical to have an effect on the muscles, so, the neuromuscular blockage. The effect lasts anywhere from 3-5 months typically there is always variability. Then the body by-passes those receptors and start using other receptors.
Is Botox permanent?
The effect of the Botox is not permanent and you have to repeat it at regular intervals.
