Botox is a weakened Botulinum toxin. However, it can be used in medicinal and cosmetic purposes when used in a very precise small amounts in very specific areas.

As a cosmetic procedure Botox injection can reduce appearance of the facial fine lines and wrinkles. It is safe when used appropriately in a therapeutic context. It temporarily disrupts the nerve signaling process to the muscle and muscle relaxes. This muscle relaxation is temporary and lasts for 3-12 month, around 6 months on average.

The most commonly treated areas are:

  • Frown lines (wrinkles between the eyebrows)
  • "Crows feet" (wrinkles around the eyes)
  • Lines around the corner of the mouth and chin

It takes 10-20 minutes to go through the procedure and it takes 24-72 hours for the Botox to take effect. Most people see the effects on 3-4th day after the treatment.  On a rare occasion, it might take up to 5 days. Full results are visible within 10-14 days.

Contraindication to Botox therapy:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breast feeding
  • Allergy

It is wise to start your Botox journey with assessment by a qualified healthcare provider to asses health condition, create a treatment plan, and review benefits and possible side effects of the treatment.
Certain medication, supplements, and alcohol consumption may increase the risk of bruising at the injection site. That's why it is recommended to restrain from alcohol consumption for at least 24 hrs prior to the procedure.
Depending on areas of concern, you may receive several injections delivered with very fine needle. Even though needle is fine, you might feel a little sting. In overall, it is quite comfortable and short lasting procedure.
Aftercare is very important.

  • Restrain from rubbing or putting pressure on the treatment area.
  • Keep upright position (do not lay down) for 3 hours after the procedure.
  • Avoid physical exertion for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
