Botox Treatment

What exactly is Botox?

    Botulinum toxin A, also known as Botox®, is a popular minimally invasive cosmetic surgery involving small injections of a purified pharmaceutical ingredient to diminish or erase face wrinkles temporarily. These botulinum toxin injections reduce wrinkles that can give you a tired, angry, or depressed appearance, as well as other issues like:

  • Crow's feet
  • Fine lines around the eyes
  • Forehead furrows
  • Frown lines
  • Neck creases

    Many facial wrinkles, such as those around the eyes and on the forehead, are created by facial muscles beneath the skin. Botox swiftly and safely blocks muscular nerve signals in the muscles, preventing them from contracting and causing a wrinkled appearance.

Is there any danger or side effect?

    Minor bruising or soreness is possible but should disappear within a few days. Other possible adverse effects include:

  • Swelling or drooping of the upper eyelids
  • Tiredness
  • Headache
  • Neck pain
  • Dual vision
  • Swollen eyes
  • Rashes, itching, and asthma symptoms are examples of allergic reactions.

    If any of these side effects occur, contact your provider right away.

What You Can Expect

    Botox treatment does not require anaesthesia, and patients have no "downtime" or recovery period. To achieve the desired effects, a dermatologist will administer tiny injections of Botox into specific wrinkle-producing face muscles throughout the treatment.

    Because incorrectly injecting Botox might result in undesired muscle relaxation or facial asymmetry, the correct use necessitates experience and solid medical judgment. It may take up to seven days after therapy for the full effects of the treatment to become apparent. Botox is only transient, with results lasting three to four months.
