Botox is a renowned brand name for a medicinal form of botulinum toxin type A which is also known as onabotulinumtoxinA. This toxin is produced by a particular bacterium which causes the food poisoning botulism. When Botox is injected in small doses into muscles, Botox doesn’t poison you but also acts a muscle relaxant with effects lasting for several months. There are two types of botulium toxin medicine and Botox cosmetic. Botox is used to treat certain medical problems and to enhance facial wrinkles. Botox is injected with sterile instruments in a doctor’s office. Botox is usually performed with local anesthesia or a numbing cream. Minimal discomfort may be felt from the shot, but in today’s time needles are so thin and fine that the procedure has become quite painless. Depending on the extent of treatment, the procedure take you anywhere from a few minutes to 20 minutes.
Selecting the accurate injection point is vital to the success of the procedure. Your doctor will select numerous injection points for each of the location to be treated. The points are located where muscle contracts not necessarily at the wrinkle you hope to erase, the botox filler is then injected into the marked points beneath the skin. Patient can resume normal activities but doctor may advise to stay out of the sun. Many types of physicians used Botox injections such as board certified plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons and dermatologists. Botox shots also need a precise knowledge of facial anatomy. Botox risk is increased when Botox injections are performed by unskilled injectors.
Botox Injections have now become a household name with wrinkle removal. Botox injections also work by blocking impulses sent from the nerves. Cosmetic benefits from Botox also include ridding the lower eyelid, nasal fold, underneath lower lip, and vertical crease of the upper lip of wrinkles.
