How Botox 50 Units Injection Works?
Botox 50 injection blocks the release of acetylcholine, relieving muscle contractions, and is associated with a number of conditions, such as incontinence and dystonia.
Cosmetically, botulinum toxin A temporarily paralyzes facial muscles to treat wrinkles. The maximum effect of muscle paralysis occurs four to seven days after a single dose. When injected in therapeutic doses, botulinum toxin A causes partial chemical inhibition of muscle tissue.
- Causes a local decrease in muscle activity
- Muscle atrophy can result
- Axonal sprouting can begin
- Extra junctional acetylcholine receptors may form
- Botulinum toxin A can cause muscle repolarization, reversing muscle denervation
Mechanism of action
Botox 50 Units toxin type A blocks neuromuscular transmission at sympathetic nerve terminals, inhibiting the release of acetylcholine.
Allergan Botox Injection Botulinum toxins have actions at various regions: The neuromuscular junction, the autonomic ganglia, and both postganglionic sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve endings.
The heavy chain of the toxin binds selectively to the presynaptic surface of cholinergic neurons in an irreversible fashion. After binding, the toxin-receptor complex is taken into the cell by endocytosis.
The disulfide bond between the two chains is broken and the botulism toxin enters the cytoplasm. The light chain specifically interacts with SNAP-25 in nerve terminals to block the binding of acetylcholine vesicles to the cell membrane. SNAP-25 is essential for the successful binding and release of acetylcholine from vesicles in nerve endings.
