WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is an injectable that doctors have safely used for years to treat wrinkles and creases on the face and other areas of the body. It is derived from botulinum toxin type A, a natural toxin produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum.
HOW IT WORKS
Botox is a neuromodulator. It targets creases near the site where it is injected by temporarily intercepting signals that travel from the nerves to the muscles. This blockage prevents the muscles from contracting, which allows wrinkles to relax and smooth out.
Botox is proven to be safe and effective. It has been in use since 1989. It is also fairly simple and non-invasive, with the average procedure only taking several minutes. Botox prevents existing lines from deepening and reverses the aging process.
Noticeable results usually begin to appear within 7 to 14 days of receiving treatment. Typically, the effects of Botox will last for 3 to 6 months. After that, creases will begin to reappear, so additional treatments will likely be necessary in order to maintain the results.
Where Is Botox Commonly Used?
Botox is most commonly used on the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines, and other creases. However, it may also be used to treat excessive sweating, severe neck and shoulder spasms, uncontrollable blinking, and other medical conditions.
Who Can Use Botox?
Most men and women can safely use Botox. However, those who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disorder should not use the treatment. Those with allergies to cow’s milk protein should also not receive Botox injections. Unlike dermal fillers, Botox does not require an individualized formula for each user.
What to Expect Post-Treatment
Refrain from touching the injection site for approximately 24 hours after receiving Botox treatment to avoid spreading the toxin to other areas of the body. Remaining upright for about 4 hours and refraining from exercising for a day is also recommended. Temporary side effects may include bruising, headaches, eyelid drooping, eye dryness, minor pain or swelling around the injection site, an upset stomach, numbness, and weakness in muscles located near the injection site.
