Botox injections

ริ้วรอย » Botox injections

WRINKLES : Botox is used to weaken the small muscles of the face that cause frown lines, crows feet and other wrinkles. 

TRANSPIRATION: Botox injections work by binding to nerve endings of the sweat glands and by preventing the release of chemical transmitters .

VAGINISME: Botox targets spastic muscles of the vagina .

MIGRAINE :  Botox has a blocking action on the parasympatic nervous system, which transmits pain to the brain.  It relaxes the muscles of the forehead.  People who have had a Botox wrinkle treatment often suffer fewer headaches. An added bonus!

Botox is mainly effective for the upper part of the face;

  • Forehead wrinkles = horizontal wrinkles on the forehead
  • Glabellas = frown wrinkles; vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows
  • Crow’s-feet = wrinkles from smiling around the eyes

WHat is BOTOX®?

Botox is Botuline toxin, a protein made by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Botox injections do not contain the bacteria but only the toxin protein.

Botuline toxin as medicine has two effects:

  • A blocking action on the nerves to the muscles after which the muscle activity diminishes.
  • A blocking action on the nerves activating sweat glands.

IS BOTOX NOT DANGEROUS ?

No.

Botox has been safely used since 1975 .It has been extensively tested and is used worldwide for the following indications:

  • Ophthalmology: strabismus or cross eyed patients and blepharospasm.
  • Orthopedic medicine: spastic paralysis.
  • Neurology: muscle spasm, migraine.
  • Internal medicine: esophagus spasm.
  • Gynecology: vaginism
  • Urology: incontinence from an overactive bladder.
  • Esthetic medicine: Anti wrinkle treatment since 1989
  • Hyper-hydrosis armpits

Botox is worldwide ranked as the most popular of all physician-administered cosmetic procedures. Botox works only locally and is not toxic.

HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?

Botox injections work by binding to nerve endings and preventing the release of chemical transmitters that activate muscles. Botox affects the ability of the muscle to move.

Result of the injections is that the expression wrinkles caused by contraction of the muscle, disappear.

WHY TREAT WRINKLES WITH BOTOX®?

People who frown a lot often look tired or angry. After a while you create a real wrinkle, even when you relax your muscles.

Botox works also preventive.

DOES BOTOX WORK FOR EVERYBODY?

Not everybody reacts the same way on the injections.

After an extensive study in Canada it appeared that 90% of the patients seemed very happy after the treatment.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?

Men and women mainly between the ages of 30 to 65 years.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS ?

Very rare side effects are itchiness, a headache or a rash. Also rare is eyelid droop (ptosis).These side effects are only temporarily. Temporary bruising can occur. To reduce the risk on bruising you should stop taking any blood thinning medication such as aspirin, marcoumar, gingko, biloba, plavix….

Also you can take arnica one week before your treatment. Right after your treatment you will notice a small bump which disappears fast.

ARE THERE ANY CONTRA INDICATIONS ?

  • Pregnant or nursing women
  • Neurological diseases:   
    Myasthenia gravis
    Lambert-Eaton syndrome
  • Certain medications:
    Amino glycoside antibiotics
    Calcium blocking medication

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE TREATMENT?

Botox is a very simple, 20-minute procedure. It is injected with a tiny needle.
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
You may resume normal daily activity immediately.

WHEN DO I SEE AND RESULT AND FOR HOW LONG?

You may see a marked improvement within 3 to 5 days. Improvement may continue for as long as two weeks. After 3 to 4 months the toxins start to wear off, the mimic muscles resume their activity and the expression wrinkles start to show again.

After a couple of rounds of treatment you may find that the results last longer (6 to 9 months).

HOW OFTEN IS THE TREATMENT RECOMMENDED ?

You can receive injections with Botox up to every 4 to 6 months in order to help you maintain the results. It is not recommended to proceed any sooner: risk for antibodies to form and muscle-atrophy is possible.
