People get Botox injections to try and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. What is it? Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox Cosmetic) is a chemical produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. Botulinum toxin is one of the most potent toxic substances in nature. When used in a medical setting as an injectable form of sterile, purified botulinum toxin, small doses block the release of a chemical called acetylcholine by nerve cells that signal muscle contraction.
Botox injection reduces muscle contraction at least temporarily. You should know that Botox is used for other medical applications besides wrinkles. In a reminder that botulinum toxin is a medical compound, the FDA has issued a notice of some adverse reactions linked to Botox, Botox Cosmetic (Botulinum toxin Type A) and Myobloc (Botulinum toxin Type B). According to the FDA statement "The most severe adverse effects were found in children treated for spasticity in their limbs associated with cerebral palsy. Treatment of spasticity is not an FDA-approved use of botulism toxins in children or adults".
