Botox injections in small doses help in reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is a neurotoxin which targets the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signal function and causing temporary muscle paralysis.
Botox injections also prevent the release of a chemical called acetylcholine and stop the contraction of the muscle cells.
People often request injections for wrinkles between the eyebrows, wrinkles around the eyes and horizontal creases in the forehead.
Sometimes minor bruising or discomfort may occur, but it improves within a few days. Other side effects like drooping of eyelid, headaches for a few days after the injections or dropping of eyebrows are rare. Allergy has been documented in literature but is extremely rare.
Botox injection needles are tiny. Hence, most people do not experience little or no discomfort during the treatment. Occasionally, slight pinching or stinging sensation can be felt.
Botox can be used to treat fine wrinkles under the eyes. It does reduce the depth of the lines but does not provide a smooth eye. To achieve this we may have to use a combination of techniques.
Anyone who is known not to be allergic to botulinum or have a rare condition called Myasthenia gravis can have Botox.
Two main drawbacks, need to be topped up every few months to maintain the results. Second is the results are so good that it then becomes difficult to live without it.
Botox injections work after 3-5 days after treatment. Botox generally lasts for 3-4 months and may require top up regularly based on client’s preferences. For sustained results, regular treatment is necessary.
