If you are thinking about getting Botox, but still have not done it because you do not know how Botox works, then this article is for you. Once it's completed, you will know how Botox works, what it does and what Botox can not do. Botox is actually a protein. In fact, it is a very small amount of a highly purified protein. There is absolutely no bacteria in bottled Botox, NONE.
The disease, Botulism is caused by a bacteria that create huge quantities of 7 different proteins all the same time. These seven proteins are labelled A, B, C, D, E, F and G. Only A and B proteins have medical uses. When Botox is made, "A" protein is extracted, purified and precisely measured.

A vial of Botox has about 5 billionths of a gram of this highly purified protein. When the doctor gets the vial of Botox, it actually looks empty. Water is added to the vial so that the protein can be drawn into a syringe and injected. So what happens when Botox is injected? Botox spreads about 1 cm. Any spread beyond 1 cm is so small that it has very little chance of doing anything at all.
This protein is then absorbed into the nerve which is within 1 cm of the injection site. Over the next 15 minutes, the Botox protein, now inside the nerve, finds another protein called a SNAP-25, attaches to it, and dissolves it. In the process of doing so, the Botox itself dissolves. In other words, after 15 minutes, the Botox is GONE.
