About Wrinkles Formation

Facial wrinkles form when we use our muscles to make facial expressions.

For example – We sometimes see people with a permanent frown on their forehead, they are actually not frowning but the muscles have got accustomed to the wrong expression.

About Neurotoxin Injections

These injections contain a natural, purified protein that relaxes muscles, creating a rejuvenated appearance that is why it is considered to be an effective anti ageing treatment in Gurgaon. In 1946, Schantz isolated neurotoxin type A in its crystalline formand in 1970, it was first used for strabismus and blepharospasm due to its property to paralyze muscles. In 1989, botulinum toxin got the Food and Drugs Administration′s (FDA) approval and is now used worldwide for therapeutic and cosmetic purposes, the quantity of the toxin used varying according to the size of the muscle and the desired action. Neurotoxin is produced by fermentation of the Hall Strain of Clostridium Botulinum type A, a Gram-negative, anaerobic bacterium. The growth medium contains casein hydrolysate, glucose and yeast extract. Dialysis purifies the toxin complex (neurotoxin and several accessory proteins) from the culture solution. Serologically, there are eight distinct types designated as A, B, C1, C2, D, E, F and G.

How It Works

Neurotoxin interfere with nerve-muscle conduction by inhibiting acetylcholine releases at the neuromuscular junction which leads to temporary paralysis of striated muscles which last for about 3 months Neurotoxin injections can be used to relax specific facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles. Thus the lines gradually smoothen and new lines are prevented from forming.

How neurotoxin is injected?

Depending upon the size of the muscle and action required, the amount of Neurotoxin used varies in cosmetic use or other purposes. The small muscles of the face require 3-10 units depending on the bulk of the muscle. Usually < 100 units are used for cosmetic indications and 300-600 units for other indications.

The vial is to be stored in a freezer ≤ -5 o C. Once reconstituted, it is to be refrigerated at 2-8 o C. After reconstitution, Neurotoxin can be used for a month if kept refrigerated. The diluent, a sterile saline solution, is injected gently into the vial to avoid agitation or foaming as the toxin can get easily denatured. One hundred units are commonly diluted in 2-4 ml of diluent. Theoretically, more concentrated solutions reduce reliability in delivering a specific unit dose and more dilute solutions lead to greater diffusion of the toxin. Preferably, a 30-gauge needle is used for injection purposes.
