Botox – Slowdown The Effects Of Wrinkles Non-surgically

Botox the brand name of a toxin drug produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. This drug is used by aesthetic health professionals in the temporary treatment of facial wrinkles. Doctors also use Botox in the treatment of some health conditions. If you are thinking of getting rid of your stubborn frown lines, consider having Botox injections. This drug has been approved by the FDA to treat frown lines and can be used to treat other facial wrinkles like crow’s feet and nasolabial folds.

The working of Botox

The Botulinum toxin works by weakening specific muscles and blocking some nerve impulses. Botox is an in-office procedure that you can safely have at Skin Deep Medical Spa. This treatment takes less than 15 minutes. Your physician will use a thin needle to inject small amounts of Botox gel in certain facial muscles. The number of injections usually depends on the severity of your wrinkles. Injected muscles will relax, and the lack of action smoothes skin thus removing wrinkles and facial creases. Repeat injections will keep improving your results but will be lesser and lesser as the muscles get used to staying relaxed. You will be able to go home on the same day after treatment and resume your normal activities immediately.

What should I avoid?

Botox may impair your vision or depth perception. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be able to see clearly.

Avoid using underarm antiperspirants or deodorants for 24 hours after receiving a Botox injection if you are being treated for excessive underarm sweating.

Avoid going back to your normal physical activities too quickly after receiving an injection.

Botox side effects

Botox is an effective wrinkle treatment but has some risks which your physician should discuss with you before the procedure. Some common side effects with the wrinkle injection include swelling, pain or bruising at the injection site. Other symptoms include droopy eyelids from facial injections, double vision, blurred vision, headaches and stomach upset. Having a professional aesthetician perform your procedure will minimize most of these risks and prolong your new look.

How long does a Botox injection last?

The effects from Botox will last four to six months. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.
