Botox is aprotein and neurotoxin that is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which blocks signals from nerve to muscles. The injected muscle cannot contract and cause the wrinkles to relax and soften. Botox is used in medical and cosmetic treatments for many years. In cosmetic treatment, we use Botox for
1. Moderate to severe glabellar lines (lines between both eyebrows)
2. Forehead wrinkles
3. Periorbital wrinkles (Eye wrinkles)
4. Contouring of lower face
5. Axillary Hyperhidrosis (Excessive sweating on underarms)
6. Square face from muscular hypertrophy (Jaw / Mandibular muscle enlargement)
7. Calf hypertrophy
Botox is injected with a fine needle into treated muscles with only minor discomfort. Injecting Botox takes only 5 – 10 minutes and doesn't require anesthesia. Normally after Botox injection for 3 -7 days we will see the visible and effective result. The result of Botox will last for 4 - 6 months.
Side effects : Redness, swelling and bruising can occur but these side effects will disappear in a few days.
