Botox Treatment

Botox Aesthetic is a muscle relaxer that is administered by injection. To temporarily paralyze muscle, it uses botulinum toxin type A, most precisely OnabotulinumtoxinA. This causes wrinkles on the face to appear to be less severe.

Botox treatment is considered to be non-invasive. The procedure is considered safe and efficient for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes. It is also possible to apply it in the space in the middle of the forehead. It is also used to treat disorders such as an overactive bladder, neck spasms (also known as cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis), and lazy eye. Botox injections might also help ward off chronic migraines.

How does it work?

Botox is classified as a neurotoxin. The neurological system is the target of these chemicals, which alter the mechanisms of nerve signalling that generate muscular contractions. In this way, the medication produces temporary paralysis of the muscles.

Acetylcholine is a chemical messenger secreted by neurons at the point where nerve endings meet muscle cells. This allows the muscle to contract when the nerves provide the signal. Acetylcholine triggers the contraction of muscle cells by binding to receptors on the surface of the cells and causing them to shorten.

Injections of Botox suppress the production of acetylcholine, which in turn prevents the contraction of muscle cells. The muscles can become less rigid due to the toxin’s effects.

Risks/ Side effects

You may experience some little bruising or discomfort, but these side effects should go away within a few days. Other possible adverse effects include the following:

  • symptoms, including puffiness or sagging of the eyelids
  • tiredness
  • Headache, neck pain, double vision, dry eyes, and other symptoms of allergic reactions, including rash, itching, or asthma

If you have any of these unpleasant side effects, you should contact your healthcare provider immediately. If you get this treatment from IPAL, you can contact Dr Shahr Bano for such unwanted effects. 

What to Expect After Botox Treatment

It is crucial to avoid rubbing the treated region, massaging it, or putting any pressure on it. Botox has the potential to spread to other parts of the body if certain steps are taken. This may have a detrimental impact on the outcomes you get. Do not lie down or bend for at least three to four hours after administering an injection between the brows. It is possible that doing so will result in the Botox sliding under the orbital rim. This may cause your eyelids to droop.

After the treatment, there should be minimal to no downtime. In most circumstances, you should be able to resume routine activities immediately.

It is essential to be aware of potential improvements and to have reasonable expectations. Within one to two days following therapy, noticeable benefits might be anticipated. Four months is the average duration of Botox Cosmetic’s full impact. Calming the muscles, it can also aid in preventing the reappearance of fine lines.

To sustain your outcomes, further Botox injections may be provided.
