Botox

252Botox injections are the most common, minimally invasive aesthetic procedures performed around the world. These injections are primarily used to target areas of the face to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, including frown lines on the forehead and crow’s feet. The active ingredient in Botox is the Botulinum toxin, Type A.

What is Botox?

Botox is one of the safest and most effective treatment options for reducing the appearance of fine lines, facial folds and wrinkles. In addition to its anti-aging benefits, Botox is also used as a solution for migraines and excessive sweating.

While it is a safe procedure when performed by an experienced professional, there can be unpleasant side effects associated with Botox injections if they are not administered correctly. Therefore, it’s very important that your injector have experience, as too little Botox will not yield any results and too much may exacerbate side effects.

Is Botox Painful?

Most people find Botox injections to be entirely painless. Those who have a lower pain threshold might experience some discomfort as the needle penetrates the skin, but not enough to warrant using local anesthetic. A topical numbing cream can be applied a few minutes before starting treatment, if preferred.

When are Botox Results Visible?

Patients should see results a few days following their treatment with full results within 2 weeks. Once the muscles in the treated area lose the ability to contract, lines and wrinkles will be appear reduced leaving the area much smoother.

The results of one Botox treatment can be enjoyed for an average period of up to 12-16 weeks depending on the units injected. Avoiding the sun and leading a healthy lifestyle will help to prolong your results. There is no downtime following the treatment, but some patients can have a small amount of bruising and swelling during the days following treatment.
