Body Aesthetix Favicon Botox Treatment

A highly purified protein preparation of Botulinum toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum (Botox) is injected, in very small amount, into specific muscles to be treated as a treatment. It paralyzes (relaxes) the muscles. Botox treatment has found a growing number of uses from easing muscle spasms, to its increasingly widespread use in cosmetic for flattening wrinkles.

While Botulinum toxin is generally considered safe in a clinical terms there can be serious side effects from its use. Most commonly it can be injected into the wrong muscle or spread from the injection site, causing paralysis to unintended muscles. Temporary bruising is also the most common side effect of Botox.

Getting Botox takes only few minutes and no anaesthesia is required, as it is just a minor discomfort for few seconds, which gives confidence and healthy skin for minimum 3 to maximum 6 months and after some sessions the lines and wrinkles often appear less severe, because the muscles are trained to relax.

Frequently Asked Questions
Botox in simple language is cosmetic injection to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles.
Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer shrink, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften. It is most often used on forehead lines, lines around the eye and frown lines.
Botox can last from three to six months gradually the muscles will start to contract, and wrinkles will reappear. It will need to be treated again.
No, the muscle will go back to its original place and start to wrinkle slowly.

The results will be seen after the first day if injected perfectly. Botox itself takes 2-4 days before muscle weakening process effect to take place. The effect then lasts up to three months. Pain differ from person to person tolerance. There is not after care period, but most doctors suggest avoiding touching or rubbing areas of injections.
Botox is a prescribed drug so only administered physicians and their designee can perform.
Botox is usually only used on the face. Doctors will use it on the frown lines between the eyebrows, called glabella lines, as well as on lines in the forehead, and at the sides of the eyes.
No, Botox is a neurotoxin and works by attaching itself to nerve endings. Once this happens, the neurotransmitter responsible for triggering muscle contractions, called acetylcholine. Botox injections temporarily relax and not freeze the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles. This is also why wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity don’t respond to Botox treatments.
Some common side effects are muscle stiffness, trouble in swallowing, rashes, bruising, muscle weakness, neck pain or back pain.
