Chances are, you’ve heard of Botox®, the seemingly miraculous treatment for wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox®is actually the trade name for a substance injected into the skin which is known to inhibit muscle movement, and that can soften wrinkles from developing or worsening.
Together with Dysport® and Xeomin®, they are the most common neuromodulators in the market.
Botox anti-wrinkle injection temporarily relaxes facial muscles preventing fine lines and wrinkles from forming. When done in optimal dose, it can make a person look younger, fresher and less tired.
Botox, when used in larger doses, can treat conditions like hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), a wide jaw, and even calf slimming. However, it should be done under well-trained and highly experienced doctors to avoid muscle function deterioration.
Mesobotox, or micobotox, a technique when diluted Botox is injected in the deep layer of the skin instead of muscles, can help promote better glow of the skin, reduce oil production and pore size, improve skin smoothness, and create some mild firming1.
How does Botox work?
Like all neuromodulators, Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles.
The injected muscles begin to relax, and that makes the wrinkles and facial creases less visible. The end point is not to have the “Frozen look”, but having a relaxed but natural youthfull look.
Botox isn’t a filler. Rather, it addresses the dynamic lines. Results of Botox injections can last for several months, ensuring that you maintain a fresh, vibrant look.
How long does Botox last?
Botox treatment normally lasts about 3-6 months. The effect of Botox fades at different rates in everybody and is affected by lifestyle and the body condition (genetics, metabolism) at that particular time.
If your Botox starts to wear off much faster than it used to be, talk to your doctor to find out if you have developed resistance towards Botox.
What are the common areas for treatment?
Botox is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eyes), and frown lines (between the eyes). It can be used to slim the face (V-shape face), reduce pores and oil production, and reduce gummy smile.
Permanent deep wrinkles on the face caused by sun damage, gravity and scars will not respond to Botox alone. In this scenario, other skin treatements like Ultherapy, Sylfirm X, TempSure, Fillers, Biostimulators and Lasers would need to be combined to obtain the best treatment outcome.
Is Botox suitable for Men?
Men generally have stronger facial muscles ended up with strong forehead creases and frowning lines and it is best treated with Botox or other neuromodulators.
A few wrinkles are fine, but too many can make a man appear much older than he truly is. Premature wrinkles and lines can make a person look haggard, exhausted, and unwell. It can make a man feel self-conscious about his appearance.
Botox can erase signs of aging, thereby boosting confidence and mood.
Botox is a relatively safe treatment, but it should always be undertaken by a qualified medical aesthetic doctor to ensure that you are getting the genuine product and the correct amount in the right area.
Visiting someone without the correct qualifications and experience could lead to asymmetrical results, muscle drooping, frozen expressions as well as various other dangerous consequences.
- Flu-like symptoms – including a headache – for the first 24 hours after treatment
- Bruising at the injection site
- Temporary weakness and droopiness of your facial features – for example, eyelids or eyebrows may droop temporarily if the injected medicine moves into these areas
- Your body developing resistance to the treatment if it’s repeated too frequently
If carried out correctly, side effects are generally minimal – and some may not experience any at all. However, occasionally some light bruising or redness around the area of injection might occur, although this shouldn’t last long.
Rare side-effects can include difficulty in swallowing, speaking and breathing – if this happens you should seek medical attention immediately.
However, the above side effects are super rare, especially when the procedure has been carried out by a certified and experienced medical aesthetic doctor using the ideal dosage.
People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease should not use Botox. Since Botox doesn’t work for all wrinkles, you should consult with a doctor first.
