Botox

Botox injections are minimally invasive procedure uses for different variations of the botulinum toxin to temporarily relax and slow down muscle activity. 

The botulinum toxin is produced by the same microbe, which causes botulism, a serious medical problem. Botox injections have a wide range of uses for both cosmetic and medical purposes ever since it was firstly approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1989.


Botox cosmetic uses - Botox injections can temporarily relax facial muscles that cause wrinkles. Injections can help patients with: 

Frown lines between the eyebrows 
Forehead lines 
Crow’s feet– the lines from the corners of the eyes

● Lower limb spasticity
● Muscle contractures – this can also be caused by cerebral palsy 
● Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating – some patients experience excessive sweating especially in underarms, even in cooler temperatures and when not exercising 
● Chronic migraines– Botox can help reduce headache frequency 
● Bladder and bowel disorders – Botox treatment can also help reduce urinary incontinence

Am I Suitable for Botox?

This treatment is also not recommended for patients under the age of 18. Patients with an active infection near the treatment area should postpone the treatment as well. Some individuals may be allergic to Botox, doctors apply specific tests and examinations to decide patients' eligibility for the procedure.

Preparing for Botox

As the Botoxis a nonsurgical, in-office treatment, it requires minimal preparation. Blood thinners such as aspirin, herbal teas, herbal supplements, and anti-inflammatory drugs need to be avoided for at least 2 weeks before the treatment is set to begin. Patients will be thoroughly tested before beginning the Botox treatment..

How is Botox Performed?

While most individuals can tolerate the Botox injections, some may want to numb certain, more sensitive areas before the Botox treatment is set to begin. Patients can pick between anesthesia injections, creams or a simple cold spray that will numb the area. 
Once the area to be injected is numb, the doctor will begin injecting a very small amount of Botox into the muscles or skin. A thin needle is used for this procedure. The amount of Botox used depends on the area and size being treated. Botox injections procedure usually takes less than an hour, then the patient can return home immediately.
