BOTOX is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown and wrinkle lines. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the contraction of the muscles resulting in smoothening of the overlying skin.
Botox can be used as early as the 30s when men and women start to develop wrinkles. It is also used to enhance certain facial features for people of any age group. Additionally, it is also the perfect solution for excessive sweating.
The treatment dose is administered during a simple, 10-minute treatment, before which a topical anesthetic is applied. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. The injection sensation is described by most patients as feeling like a bug bite. This is often called a lunchtime procedure. No specific care is needed after the treatment.
Results start appearing within 2-3 days, with maximal response visible between 7 to 10 days. The results of treatment last for close to 6 months.
If injected with proper technique and an experienced dermatologist, there are no side effects.
I dread the plastic face look! The more you know, the less you need. A seasoned dermatologist will do only what is necessary and required. With the miniscule doses of the toxin used for treatment, the muscle activity that causes linesis simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
If you do not continue treatments, the expression lines will gradually look as they did before treatment.
