Sculpt Spa: The Newest Spot For Botox Shots in Las Vegas
Completing the Las Vegas facial injection tool kit is Botox, probably the most well-known facial injection product in the world. Botox blocks the release of a key chemical in your nervous system, acetylcholine, preventing the transmittal of signals from nerve cells to muscles. This causes the muscles to stop contracting and smooths wrinkles.
Botox has gained popularity in our culture thanks to being embraced by many of the stars of the Real Housewives franchises. CoolSculpting Elite, Sculpt Spa’s very popular fat-freezing cryotherapy procedure, also got a Real Housewives endorsement when Real Housewife of Orange County Gina Kirschenheiter declared “I’m a big fan of #coolsculpting” on Instagram. (She also made a point to mention it during the Real Housewives of Orange County reunion show.
Botox is an injectable form of botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum toxin is a protein that comes from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. It is heavily diluted and highly purified for safe use in the hands of a trained Sculpt Spa esthetician.
Most people just like knowing that it makes them look younger and wrinkle-free. Here are ten other cool and intriguing facts about Botox should it come up at your next cocktail party:
1. The active bacterium in Botox was discovered at a funeral
In the 1820s food-born botulism was a medical crisis, killing many people. It was called “sausage poison” due to so many people succumbing to bad sausages. In 1985, Emile van Ermengem studied a botulism outbreak that killed several people who had attended a funeral and was able to isolate the specific bacterium from a batch of tainted ham they had all eaten.
2. The cosmetic use of Botox was discovered during an eye treatment
In 1987 an eye doctor named Jean Carruthers used Botox to treat her patient’s blepharospasm a muscle dysfunction. Botox worked as a relaxant, making the tissue function correctly and eased the affected area. The patient reported back to Dr. Carruthers that she wanted more of the treatment because it made the wrinkles in her forehead disappear.
3. Botox was a featured Real Housewives staple from the get-go
Reality TV made Botox a normalized procedure for the public. Real Housewives Vicki Gunvalson and Lauri Peterson were seen getting it on the third-ever episode of the very first Real Housewives series. Botox was in front of the cameras long before many of the now famous Real Housewives celebs ever were themselves. It became common-place and then abused in shows like “Extreme Makeover” and “The Swan” that took its usage to extremes.
4. In World War II, Botox was used as a biological weapon
In the war, Japan is said to have used C. botulinum cultures on their prisoners of war. They were not the only ones playing with Botox-based biological weapons. The United States is reported to have produced botulinum toxin capsules to use against the Japanese officials as well.
5. November 20th is National Botox Cosmetic Day!
Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox launched this not-well-known holiday, so, yes, it is a bit self-serving. It is also a great excuse to celebrate yourself with a “freshen up.”
6. Botox can treat depression
Not only does improving your face’s contour lift your spirits, but Botox actually may physiologically treat depression. A 2020 study in Scientific Reports discovered “people who received Botox injections — at six different sites, not just in the forehead — reported depression significantly less often than patients undergoing different treatments for the same conditions.” There is speculation that the interruption of nerve feedback from facial muscles alleviates negativity.
7. Botox is also a treatment for migraines
Botox was approved for migraine treatment in 2013. It is speculated that the pain-relieving effect is due to pain signals being unable to reach nerve endings. Broadway star Kristin Chenowith is reported to use Botox specifically for this purpose.
8. It can help your overactive bladder
Often people who have accidental leakage suffer from bladder muscle spasms. Enter Botox and its muscle relaxing properties—the spasms decrease and gives the patient bladder control.
9. More innovative uses of Botox are coming
Botox is being tested and implemented for a number of therapeutic uses and we will be hearing more about them in the years to come. It has been used for esophageal spasms and anal sphincter spasms.
10.Its results take longer than your Restylane Las Vegas treatments
Your Restylane treatments work pretty much instantly. Botox takes a month or two to have a full effect.
