The pharmaceutical company Allergan Inc. currently leads the cosmetic medical market with the best product used in non-surgical cosmetic procedures, the so called anti-aging miracle: BOTOX Cosmetic. With over 3 million people treated in North America in 2005 alone, this figure increases every year. BOTOX has remarkable effects in our fight against the signs of aging. One of the leading cosmetic clinics licensed to administer BOTOX Cosmetic injections is Skin Vitality, a medical aesthetic clinic that performs more treatments than 99.5% of all medical professionals across Canada. A medical doctor and registered nurses administrate the treatment, making sure that from the storage of the vials to the administration of the injections is conducted properly and following accurate protocol. Health Canada approved Botox to treat glabellar lines, the wrinkles between the eyebrows that result from corrugator/ procerus muscles, on April 4, 2001. In 2002 FDA approved it for people between 18 and 65 years. A BOTOX Cosmetic vial contains sodium chloride, 100 units of clostridium botulinum and a plasma protein called Albumin Human. The bacterium clostridium botulinum, type A (BTX-A) is the source of BOTOX. The process involves hindering the release of chemical acetylcholine (Ach), which is done by the vital ingredient in BOTOX, purified protein. Acetylcholine exists in the central nervous system and also in the peripheral nervous system of humans and many other organisms. The role of this neurotransmitter is to signal muscles to contract. Wrinkles are formed by the repeated creasing of the skin overlying the muscles, so the main purpose of stopping acetylcholine production is to stop muscle contractions, thus stopping wrinkles from forming. The appropriate dosage of BOTOX Cosmetic is very important for the safety of patients. Assessing the amount of movement in the target muscle and the severity of wrinkles is part of the process required by treatment. Because the result of a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment lasts about 4 months, there should be a period of at least 3 months between treatments.
