How does botulinum work?
Botulinum has a direct effect on the fine nerve
fibres embedded in the muscles into which
injections are made.
Nerve impulses instruct the muscles to contract
by a sequence of chemical instructions started
by the release of a bridging chemical, a
neurotransmitter, which crosses a microscopic
gap between the nerve and the muscle.
The botulinum molecule acts to block this
chemical signal so preventing the activation of
the muscle within the areas of treatment.
