Here is a sample of the type of i nformation that you will learn at one of our Botox courses. What is BOTOX Cosmetic? BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein complex derived from the bacterium Clostridi um botulinum that smoothes the muscles by blocking nerve impulses. BOTOX Cosmeti c blocks the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction thereby prev enting the contraction of muscles. In detail, BOTOX binds to the nerve terminal, internalizes by receptor mediated endocytosis, cleaves a cytoplasmic protein ca lled SNAP-25 and blocks the fusion of the vesicles containing acetylcholine with the nerve membrane. After time, nerve end plate expands and collateral termina l sprouts appear. Once the parent nerve terminal regains function, the collater al terminals retract. BOTOX Cosmetic was FDA-approved in 2002 for moderate to severe glabellar lines in patients 18 to 65 years of age. It should be noted that any other location on the face that BOTOX Cosmetic is injected for cosmetic purposes is considered offlabel use. As the facial muscles ceases to move, the wrinkles will diminish. Patients will begin to see effects of muscle relaxation within several days, taking up to 5 7 days to see full effect. Relaxation of the muscle due to BOTOX Cosmetic can las t up to 3 - 4 months. Rarely up to 6 months. Contraindication BOTOX Cosmetic is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed in jection site(s), individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in th e formulation, pregnancy (category C - safety for use during pregnancy has not b een established), or breastfeeding. There have been rare reports of adverse even ts involving the cardiovascular system. Serious and/or immediate hypersensitivit y reactions have been reported rarely. These reactions include anaphylaxis, urti caria, soft-tissue edema, and dyspnea. BOTOX Cosmetic is prepared with an albumin (egg) base and should be avoided if your patient is allergic to eggs. The most common side effects following injection of BOTOX Cosmetic include tempor ary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness , swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injecti on. Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert -Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious adverse events. Underlying g eneralized weakness can be exacerbated, and local weakness at injection sites ca n occur more than otherwise expected. It should be noted that the lethal dose for BOTOX Cosmetic is 3000 units. This i s 30 vials of Botox Cosmetic in one day injected into a 70kg individual. Typical ly, you will inject 20 units to 100 units in one day. Register for one of our Botox courses as soon as you can our classes fill up qui ckly.
