Wrinkle Treatment with Botox

The quest for youth or youthful appearance is as old as humanity. Though of course the natural process of aging cannot be reversed, there are significant improvements toward this direction. One of the first successful and widely used therapies for achieving younger facial appearance is the Botox injections.
Popularly known by its trade name Botox, the Botulinum toxin is a protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria.It is a powerful neurotoxin originally used as vaccination against Botulinum poisoning, a serious illness in humans and animals.

Later it was found to be useful to relieve painful muscle spasms, excessive underarm sweating, migraines, and dynamic (facial) wrinkles.

There are some common beliefs about this treatment which are not true. Therefore, here we shall briefly explain some common misconceptions regarding the usefulness of Botox.

Botox is ineffective for those wrinkles that are visible when our facial muscles are at rest, (for example wrinkles caused by sun damage). In other words, Botox is not useful for those wrinkles that are not due to facial expressions.

However, Botox can dramatically reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles that are visible when you make some kind of facial expression, for example when you squint, frown, or laugh. You may have earned your worry lines but you don’t have to show them. Crow’s feet, nasolabial folds (those deep lines shooting down from the sides of your nose ), forehead wrinkles , may be the thing of the past thanks to Botox.

So, as in other interventions at plastic surgery, it is crucial to set realistic expectations and it can be achieved by consulting your surgeon. Botox can be greatly effective and can significantly reduce some wrinkles while it can be ineffective towards other ones. However, there are other solutions for wrinkle treatment with the use of hyaluronic based acid, and the two treatments may be combined for the perfect results.

Botox works by blocking impulses from the nerves to facial muscles that are related to expression lines. Injecting Botox relaxes the underlying muscles so they do not contract.

For excessive underarm sweating Botox is effective by interfering with the function of sweat glands under the skin.

Botox injections are a temporary solution for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles. The effect of the injections varies from patient to patient but usually lasts from two to five months after which the treatment may be repeated. So botox not offers permanent solution, but since the treatments lasts, there is a great reduction of the signs of aging.

A very small amount of Botox is injected into specific locations in the face using a micro needle. Because the needle is so fine there is very little discomfort associated with this treatment.

For two hours after treatment we recommend that patients contract (exercise) the associated muscles 10 to 15 times in order to promote the effect of the Botox around the injection sites. We also recommend skipping the gym and the solarium for couple of days after treatment.

Some patients will experience redness and swelling near the injection sites that usually disappears in a few hours. Other patients may experience slight bruising. Rarely Botox causes temporary drooping of eyelids that usually resolves in 2-3 weeks. This can happen when the Botox migrates outside of the intended areas of treatment. However the Botox treatment is widely used and well documented with successful results and minimal side-effects in the last twenty-something years.
