What is Botox®?
Botox® is derived from Clostridium Botulinum, a bacterium that can be dangerous if eaten, but as a cosmetic created in the laboratory, seems safe. Because it has the effect of freezing muscles, it was originally developed to treat spasms, particularly overactive eye spasms. However, it was soon found to minimize the look of crow’s feet and superficial wrinkles because it freezes the face. If you can’t make the movement that emphasizes the wrinkle, the wrinkle may as well not exist.
Botox® is also useful for those with hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweat. This is a syndrome that is usually treated with prescription antiperspirants, the long-term effects of which aren’t known and, for those whose hyperhidrosis is especially severe, is only mildly effective. Botox®, however, balances the problem and relieves the condition for several months at a time.
Other benefits of Botox®
Medical professionals are hopeful that Botox® may prove to be a useful treatment of arthritis pain. Initial studies show a decrease in pain and an improvement in function for people with various types of arthritis, and the benefits lasted anywhere from three to twelve months. As promising as this is, larger and more controlled studies are needed to determine if this will be the next big thing in the treatment of arthritis pain.
