Botulinum toxin A is perpetually used in medical treatment for curing muscle spasm since Botox can cause muscle relaxation. Later, Botox is developed and used in cosmetic surgery. Botox initial substance consists of active substance (Botulinum) and binding substance (protein). In the past, it is believed that when inject any substance to your body, protein will coat the active substance to prevent damage from body. Actually, however, protein itself stimulates antibody causing Botox resistance. Therefore, first injection is fine, but other injections give less results or nothing. Moreover, injection to a wrong area or an inadequate dose can cause Botox resistance as well. Botox resistance is a reaction in which body is against Botox causing no or less result. At first, result may last for 4-6 months, but it becomes 3-4 weeks. Especially, patients undergoing Botox from many clinics are at a higher risk for Botox resistance. If this situation is occurred, you must stop using Botox for 3-4 years until your body can adapt and is ready for Botox injection again. Another option for mild Botox resistance is Botox extraction for a little amount of protein. This substance can replace the original Botox; however, it takes time until the Botox antibodies are lesser.
