Botox treatments® are used on several skin conditions including wrinkles on the face, and lines on the forehead and around the eyes. Apart from cosmetic applications, Botox® is also widely used to treat many medical conditions including chronic migraines, uncontrolled eye blinking, squint, and an overactive bladder, among others.
Despite its proven efficiency as a cosmetic and medical product, a lingering fear exists among many regarding Botox®. Let’s clear the air so you can make an informed decision when you choosing a Botox® treatment.
What is Botox®?
Botox® is derived from Clostridium Botulinum bacterium. While the drug could be toxic in wrong dosages, a measured clinical quantity has proved to be successful in cosmetic and medical treatments. It is therefore important to receive treatment at a reputed Botox® clinic with qualified professionals to perform the procedure.
How Botox® Treatments Work
When injected in clinically-defined quantities, Botox® works by stopping signals from nerve cells to the muscle that has been injected with the drug. As a result, the muscle does not contract, which it usually does after receiving nerve signals. So, the muscle remains soft and relaxed, which reduces wrinkles in the area.
About Botox® Treatment
Botox® treatment is a very simple procedure. It does not require anaesthesia and doesn’t take more than a few minutes.. Accurate dosage of the drug is injected into the muscle in the area where wrinkles or lines are to be reduced.
A fine needle is used for the procedure, which may cause a slight discomfort. A minor bruise or redness may appear at the spot of injection, which fades quickly.
After the Procedure
It can take anywhere from 1 to 3 days, or up to 7 days, to experience results. The effects of the treatment last for 6 months. Chances of side-effects are minimal, and may include mild nausea, headache, fatigue, dry mouth, and drooping of the eyelids.
