Botox is a non-surgical treatment that in the form of botulism is injected into the facial muscles. It paralyses or weakens the muscles that form wrinkles. The result is a remarkable difference in softening and in fact virtually eliminating deep wrinkles between your brows, creases in your forehead and crow’s feet around your eyes. Botox injections should only be performed by a trained professional in a sterile setting. The results of the injections usually last for about 120 days, after which they will need to be touched up or the face will begin to take upon its previous sagged form.

Right Candidate For Botox Injections

More and more women and men are turning to Botox injections to reduce the signs of aging, and to rid themselves of unsightly facial wrinkles. Botox, regarded by some as the ultimate fountain of youth has been used for wrinkle treatment since the early 1990′s and no serious side effects have been documented. However it doesn’t mean that the treatment is right for everyone! Read below to know if you are the right candidate for the treatment:

  • Botox can be used by anyone in good health and does not use drugs in any form
  • It is recommended for those who are between the ages of 18 and 65
  • Although there is no evidence to suggest Botox could harm an unborn child, it is always recommended that pregnant women, or women who are breast feeding, should avoid having Botox Injections
  • For the success of the treatment, people should not take injections of Botox if they have an infection especially if the injection site is close to the infected area
  • It is unadvisable to have Botox treatment for people that have any allergic reactions to such medicines.
  • They should seek medical advice from their own doctor as some antibiotics like Gentamicin, Tobramycin, Clindamycin, and Lincomycin will react with Botox and increase the risks of side effects. This includes Quinidine for treatments in heart rhythm problems.
  • People with certain neuromuscular diseases such as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease), Myasthenia Gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome are also at risk of cardiovascular problems that may arise during or after having Botox Injection.

Assessment Of The Areas Requiring Treatment

  • For the first step of the Botox injection technique, the provider will ask the patient to contract her facial muscles to accentuate the wrinkles
  • He will then make marks on the skin to indicate where the deepest wrinkles are
  • When the facial muscles are relaxed, the marks will indicate where Botox injections need to be made in order to eliminate the wrinkles

Preparation For The Botox Injection Treatment

  • The area to be injected will be cleansed with an antiseptic solution, usually beta dine
  • This will rid the area of any contaminates that may be present
  • A sterile paper or plastic drape will be placed around the area to be injected to further protect the area from contamination

Equipment

  • Botox injections are usually administered with a very small needle
  • The most common type of needle used is a 30-gauge tuberculin syringe with a ½-inch needle
  • Botox usually comes packaged in a 100cc container

Weak Muscles = Weak Emotions?

Could it be that Botox weakens emotions as well as facial muscles? It just may, according to researchers at Barnard College. The new findings appear in the journal Emotion.
The researchers concluded that while a person under the influence of Botox can respond normally to an emotional event — such as a sad scene in a movie — they animate, or move their facial muscles, less. Less movement means less feedback to the brain, which could influence their emotional experience.
The bottom line? There may be something to the facial feedback hypothesis, but more research is needed.

Procedure For Botox Injection

  • The provider will draw up approximately 30 units of Botox into the syringe
  • He will then inject approximately 5 units of Botox per site into the muscle along the wrinkle
  • Injections will be made at about 1 cm intervals along the line of the wrinkle
  • A new syringe will be used after every five injections
  • For severe wrinkles, injections may be made both above and below the wrinkle at staggered intervals
  • Numbing agents are not used during Botox injections so patients can expect the injections to be slightly uncomfortable

Recovery Time Of Botox Injections

  • There is no recovery period after Botox injections
  • Patients will be allowed to go home immediately afterward and should remain in an upright position for a few hours afterward to prevent swelling
  • The area can be washed and maintained according to normal face washing routine

Side Effects Of Botox

  • There have been no systemic side effects reported with the use of Botox
  • The most common complaint reported after Botox injections is a headache that goes away in a few hours
  • Some patients who have extensive Botox injections report pain at the injection sites for a few days

Warnings

  • Botox injections should never be given at the arch of the eyebrow as it can cause paralysis of the eyelid
  • Aspirin and NSAIDS should be stopped seven days prior to Botox injections to prevent bruising at the injection sites

Botox For Hyperhidrosis Treatment

While Botox has become a household name for its cosmetic usage, recent medical advances show that Botox has powerful medical benefits as well for certain conditions. One of the latest discoveries is that Botox injections can help cure hyperhidrosis, an embarrassing condition that causes people to sweat in excess.

This condition is problematic for anyone who suffers from it. It can interfere with everyday life, making it hard to feel confident going out in public. For some people, especially those who work in sales, television, or any other interpersonal position, the condition can actually be detrimental, since the sweating is so excessive that it often soaks through clothes and leave a foul order. Many people afflicted with the condition have found that little helps, until Botox.

Botox injections can stifle sweating much the same way they can boost skin for a smoother complexion. When targeted against wrinkles, the lines are lifted. When aimed at sources of excessive sweat, it can block the nerve signals that trigger sweat, therefore reducing the amount of sweat produced. The procedure is relatively safe and effective, with results lasting anywhere between six to twelve months.

For those who suffer from embarrassing sweat, Botox injections can provide that coveted cure, even if only a temporary one with a hefty price tag. Yet, the benefit of being comfortable in the world again may just be worth the cost.

How Does Botox Work?

  • Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles
  • The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften
  • It is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines
  • Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox

How Is The Botox Procedure Performed?

  • The procedure takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required
  • Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort
  • It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment
  • Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising

How Long Does A Botox Injection Last?

  • The effects from Botox will last four to six months
  • As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated
  • The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax

What Are the Side Effects of Botox?

  • Temporary bruising is the most common side effect
  • Headaches, which resolve in 24-48 hours, can occur, but this is rare
  • A small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping, this usually resolves in three weeks
  • There have been no allergies associated with Botox to date
  • The most common side effects of Botox include headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms and redness and pain at the injection points.
  • Your doctor may advise you to stay out of the sun as a necessary precaution.

  • Talk to your doctor to fully understand the risks, complications and remedies
