What Is Botox® Made Of?

Botox® is one of the world’s leading cosmetic treatments. In the United States alone, over four million Botox® treatments get carried out, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

One of the reasons for the continued popularity of Botox® is that it addresses various facial cosmetic concerns for adults of all ages. Botox® first got FDA clearance for cosmetic treatments nearly 20 years ago, making it a safe choice.

Botox® is an injectable cosmetic treatment offered by The Refinery Medspa & Wellness, a cosmetic medspa located in West Melbourne, FL. Learn more about Botox® and what it contains below.

Botox® Overview

Botox® is an injectable product that addresses a variety of facial cosmetic concerns. Since its FDA approval in 2002, Botox® has been used by millions of people, both in the United States and beyond. Today, it’s the top cosmetic treatment to date.

Each Botox® treatment works by inhibiting the muscles at the injection sites from creating dynamic wrinkles, resulting in a non-surgical and versatile way to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns.

About Botulinum Toxin – The Main Ingredient in Botox®

Botulinum toxin, also known by its commercially marketed name onabotulinumtoxinA, is the active ingredient in Botox® cosmetic treatments. It’s a neurotoxic protein produced by a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum.

Botulinum toxin works by blocking the neurotransmitter acetylcholine from communicating with nerve endings. When used in cosmetic settings, it creates a rested and more youthful look at the treatment site.

Because of how it works and what it does, Botox® should only be administered by trained estheticians such as the professional team at The Refinery Medspa & Wellness.

What Does Botox® Treat?

Many people are unhappy with how the aging process or over-exposure to the sun affected their facial appearance. There are many cosmetic surgical options to address those problems, but Botox® offers a viable non-surgical alternative.

Botox® can smooth the upper areas of the face and diminish the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet lines, and forehead lines while helping to maintain a rested, natural, and youthful appearance.

Benefits of Botox®

Botox® is a versatile minimally-invasive cosmetic facial treatment offered by The Refinery Medspa & Wellness. It’s a safe treatment used by millions of people each year with a very low risk of severe side effects.

Another benefit of Botox® is that a typical treatment session takes just 15 minutes to perform. That makes it a cosmetic treatment you can include in even the tightest of schedules.

Lastly, there is no downtime associated with Botox®, and the results it offers last up to four months – longer if you have regular maintenance treatments.
