What is Botox?

Botox is the brand name of a type of toxin produced from a certain bacteria that is injected into the skin to treat wrinkles and creases on the face. It has a few other uses as well that will be discussed below. It works by disconnecting the nerve and muscle connection, resulting in paralyzed face muscles. The injection and the procedure is commonly known as Botox, but other formulations such as Dysport and Xeomin are used as well. The effects of Botox can last between three months to a whole year.
   

Why Botox?

Botox has been widely popular since its invention. In 2017, Botox was the number one cosmetic procedure carried out in USA. However, it is not just used for its cosmetic purposes. Botox can help with a couple of different conditions:
  • Wrinkles and face creases: Whenever you laugh, cry or frown, the muscles in your face contract and the skin covering those muscles tighten or pull, often causing deep creases on specific parts of the face. One of the most known and popular uses of Botox injections is helping with the smoothing of the mentioned wrinkles. Botox injection can help with the deep wrinkles on the forehead, the frown lines, and the wrinkles around the eye known as crow’s feet wrinkles. If you have any one of these wrinkle types, Botox can smoothen your face and offer a fine, crease free, youthful skin. However, it cannot be used against wrinkles that have been occurred due to sunrays or gravity.

  • Severe Underarm Sweating

  • Uncontrollable Muscle Spasms

  • Uncontrollable Blinking known as Blepharospasm

  • Severe Cases of Migraine

  • Overactive Bladder

   

How Is Cosmetic Botox Procedure Done?

Your doctor will discuss the procedure and its outcomes with you beforehand. You and your doctor will decide what parts of your face will be needing Botox injections. You should avoid drinking alcohol a week before the procedure. Also, you have to avoid taking anti-inflammatory medicine a couple of weeks prior to the procedure as to reduce the post-procedure swelling.
The procedure itself is straightforward and simple. It takes a few minutes to inject the Botox into the desired areas using a very fine needle. You will not be needing anesthesia and you will feel mild stinging and discomfort during the procedure.
   

Who Is a Good Candidate for Botox?

Not everyone is a good candidate for Botox injection. Suitable candidates must:

  • Not be allergic to Botox ingredients or any botulinum toxic product.

  • Not have any skin infection or diseases.

  • Be healthy, without any muscle or nerve condition such as ALS, etc.

  • Not be pregnant or breast-feeding

  • Not have deep facial scars

  • Not have visible facial asymmetry

  • Not have thick skin

  • Not have Ptosis

   

What to Expect After Botox Injection?

There is no recovery time for the treatment. However, you must avoid lying down for the first couple of hours after the injection. Your skin will not instantly change after the procedure. It will take around a week or two for the results of the Botox injection to show and for the wrinkles to smoothen. The final results may vary in different individuals.
You may experience swelling, bruising, redness in the area or even headaches. Consider these side effects normal as they are temporary. Bruising will be minimal and will vanish in a few days.
You should avoid touching your face in the injected area, as it can cause complications. Massaging the area will cause the Botox to spread to the unwanted areas and cause complication. You should also avoid taking blood thinners such as aspirin.
The muscle will be restricted after a Botox injection, as Botox stops your muscles from moving when you try to laugh, smile or frown. The Botox protein will vanish in time, usually a couple of months. You need to repeat the procedure if you want a permanent result.
