BOTOX Cosmetic Injections for Facial Wrinkles

  1. 1. BOTOX Cosmetic Injections for Facial Wrinkles BOTOX cosmetic injections are a true blessing for those who wouldn’t like to go the surgery way to diminish their facial wrinkles. BOTOX injection treatment aims at rendering inactive those muscles which produce wrinkles. Though only a temporary treatment, BOTOX injections offer the advantage of no downtime; daily activities can be resumed immediately after the procedure. About BOTOX BOTOX is the botulinum toxin type A in a much purified form. It is the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum that turns out this toxin. BOTOX Treatment – The Procedure With the help of a small, thin needle; the doctor injects minute doses of BOTOX into particular muscles. Individual treatment is done on the underlying hyperdynamic muscles. Care is taken to paralyze and weaken only those muscles which are the causative factors for wrinkles, furrowing and lining. The ultimate result is younger and less tired skin. Factors like the facial features, the specific region being treated and the degree of wrinkling would determine the quantity of injections required for a particular patient. Areas Effectively Treated Areas which the BOTOX treatment can prove effective for include: • Crow’s feet • Glabellar furrow • Neck bands situated on the underside of the chin • Forehead lines • Wrinkles surrounding the upper lip Short Term but No Severe Side Effects The results of the injections are usually noticeable within a week’s time and would remain for 3 to 6 months after which repeat injections would be required. Complications and side effects like minor bruising, redness, nausea and headache are a possibility after BOTOX treatment. Severe side effects however, are rare. To minimize the incidence of side effects, it is of utmost importance that the patient gets the treatment done only by a professional doctor. Though the FDA has only approved BOTOX cosmetic injections for improving facial wrinkles, this treatment promises great results in patients having migraine headaches, and too much armpit or hand sweating.
