Botox

Botox is not a kind of a product, but a brand name. It stands for botulinum toxin, which is a neurotoxin injection designed to temporarily eliminate fine lines, crow’s feet and wrinkles. It works by relaxing facial muscles and has uses in both medicine and dentistry.

These uses can include treatment of an overactive bladder or migraine headaches, as well as cosmetic uses to reduce "worry lines" and "crows feet". It can be a safe and effective way to temporarily remove wrinkles or lines on the forehead, upper lip, or around the eyes.

What does Botox® do?

The injected Botox® blocks the nerve impulses to the muscles that cause wrinkles and relaxes the muscles. It does not normally interfere with facial expressions. Dramatic improvement in appearance can be seen within two to seven days! However, the treatment is temporary, as the injection wears off and the muscle is able to contract again. Normally the treatment lasts three months, but can last for six months for some patients.

Is Botox Safe?

This brings us to the most important question. Is it safe? The general is answer is “yes.” In fact, Botox has a safe history. According to a study, the FDA only recorded 36 serious adverse effects of Botox from 1989 to 2003. And considering that millions undergo this treatment, such number is relatively small. The safety record for Botox is highly impressive. Some studies might cast doubts as to the safety of Botox. But as far as figures and recorded incidences are concerned, this injection solution is pretty safe.

Is Botox Right for You?

Botox works for everyone. But there are things you need to consider first before you decide. You need to understand that Botox can be expensive especially because you need to periodically get an injection. It must be clear to you first that this treatment is temporary and you need maintenance to keep the effects. Once these minor issues are clear to you, then there’s no reason why you can’t or won’t get a Botox. But if you really want to be extra sure if such treatment is right for you, the best you can do is ask a professional.

How Long Does it Take?

People think that Botox hurts and takes much time. Well, you need to know that it is actually the contrary. The treatment does not take that much time because administering the solution only lasts around 10 minutes.

Is Botox Injection Painful?

For cosmetic procedures, Botox® is virtually painless and has a very short recovery time. It is administered via a brief, small injection. It is not painful too and is pretty comfortable. 

There may be mild discomfort during the injection itself, and some patients have reported minor swelling or redness that may appear in the few days after the treatment. But other than these, you won’t feel a thing.

Is the effect of Botox Permanent?

No. The effect of Botox is not permanent. In fact, it’s a temporary solution for the wrinkles and lines. Usually, the effect lasts up to 3 to 4 months. In order to keep the results, it needs to be administered periodically.

What is the time frame for this procedure?

Botox® is not a permanent solution; follow-up visits about three to six months apart are needed to keep wrinkles from reappearing.
