Botulinum Toxin Injections

Botulinum toxin injections , often referred to by the product names Botox or Myobloc®, are biological toxins (botulinum toxin) transformed into a therapeutic agent.Today, Botulinum is used for the treatment of frown lines, forehead furrows, "crow's feet," lines and wrinkles of the lower face, and even nasal muscles (to decrease nostril flaring).

These injections have proven to be a very popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. Aesthetic plastic surgeons have found that the type of lines and wrinkles that respond to botox injections are those caused by the muscles - specifically those muscles that contract during facial expressions such as frowning or squinting.Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes the wrinkles to relax and soften.
Injecting Botox takes only a few minutes in the OPD and no anesthesia is required.Itis injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.Take care that you do not rub the treated area for 12 hours after injection or lay down for three to four hours.The effects from Botox will last four to six months. The muscle action gradually returns and the lines and wrinkles begin to re-appear and wrinkles need to be re-treated. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.

The Botox and filler injections are done at Image medical centre.
