Come In for Botox InjectionsPublished on December 21, 2017 by Raymond Lee
Botox is a popular cosmetic procedure for removing wrinkles and rejuvenating one’s facial appearance. In addition to reducing wrinkles, botox injections can also be helpful for treating many medical conditions such as muscle spasms, bladder problems, and more.
Botox is a very potent chemical substance that is derived naturally. It is very effective in all its applications, but given its chemical composition, it is important to get Botox injections from qualified doctors only.
What is Botox?
Botox is actually a very powerful neurotoxin. It is found in a bacterium (Clostridium botulinum) that can also cause botulism, a disease that affects the nerves.
Despite the poisonous nature of Botox, it has been found to be beneficial for many cosmetic and health problems in the right doses. It is used in controlled quantities, so there is no risk of poisoning to humans. When used in a controlled manner by a trained medical practitioner, it can provide therapeutic and aesthetic benefits.
Botox needs be injected into the skin in a concentrated form. Once injected, it paralyzes nerve cells in the area where it is given. The cells targeted are those responsible for generating wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment will help prevent the muscles from contracting and reduce the visibility of the wrinkles.
Your doctor will decide the dose of your Botox injection depending on your requirements and body type. You may need additional sessions after a few months to keep wrinkles away. You can receive Botox injections in more than one area at the same time, for instance, in your forehead as well as the corners of your eyes. For other uses, the number of doses and the size of the injection will depend on the type and severity of the condition for which you are seeking treatment.
After receiving Botox injections, you may experience redness, slight pain, or swelling in the area. These side effects subside soon after the treatment and your new look will be revealed.
Botox is most commonly used for removing wrinkles and lines from face. When it is injected into the skin, it blocks the nerves from contracting and softens the wrinkles.
Botox is very useful in smoothing out and fading away wrinkles and lines on the face. You can also use Botox injections to delay the appearance of wrinkles. If you use Botox on the forehead, you can delay the appearance of frown lines.
Botox is very effective in giving your skin a smoother and more youthful appearance. Both men and women can use it to keep the wrinkles away and reclaim their youthful look. It is especially helpful for smoothing out crow’s feet and frown lines.
Botox is now used for many medical conditions as well. You can get Botox injections to find relief from the following problems:
• Hyperhidrosis or excessive underarm sweating
• Cervical dystonia or severe neck muscle spasms
• Muscle stiffness in the limbs (fingers, elbows, wrists, toes, ankles)
• Blepharospasm or eyelid spasms causing excessive blinking
• Strabismus or misalignment of eyes
• Overactive bladder (causing sudden urge to urinate)
