What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein complex derived from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum that smoothes the muscles by blocking nerve impulses. BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the release of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction thereby preventing the contraction of muscles. In detail, BOTOX® binds to the nerve terminal, internalizes by receptor mediated endocytosis, cleaves a cytoplasmic protein called SNAP-25 and blocks the fusion of the vesicles containing acetylcholine with the nerve membrane. After time, nerve end plate expands and collateral terminal sprouts appear. Once the parent nerve terminal regains function, the collateral 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 off-label 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 last up to 3 - 4 months. Rarely up to 6 months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s), individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation, pregnancy (category C - safety for use during pregnancy has not been established), or breastfeeding. There have been rare reports of adverse events involving the cardiovascular system. Serious and/or immediate hypersensitivity reactions have been reported rarely. These reactions include anaphylaxis, urticaria, 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 temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection.
Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious adverse events. Underlying generalized weakness can be exacerbated, and local weakness at injection sites can occur more than otherwise expected.
It should be noted that the lethal dose for BOTOX® Cosmetic is 3000 units. This is 30 vials of Botox® Cosmetic in one day injected into a 70kg individual. Typically, you will inject 20 units to 100 units in one day.
