What is Botox Injection?
Botox is a well-known non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The procedure helps to smoothen and revive youthful facial appearance with little to no downtime within just one session.
As Botox is derived from the bacterium, it is known to be highly toxic, and a merely small quantity is allowed for each usage, the treatment is not a permanent effect. The chemical temporarily relaxes the muscles that cause the skin folds, hence restoring the smooth and soft skin appearance.
How It Works
Botulinum Toxin is a naturally occurring protein derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. A small amount of Botulinum Toxin is popularly used in cosmetic dermatology purposes to enhance smoother, younger skin with a rejuvenated facial appearance by acting on the nerve endings. Botox is known as a neurotoxin, in which its main function is to target the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signaling processes that stimulate muscle contraction. The chemical specifically blocks the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which results in muscle relaxation of the particular treated area that could last between 3 to 6 months.
Botox Injection Procedure
1. Consultation and examination on skin conditions
2. Marking of areas to be treated
3. Application of local anesthesia (if desired)
4. Botox injection performed on the marked areas
This treatment is particularly effective in those who wish to reduce the natural tendency to frown, for the eyes to look more refreshed or want a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
At our affiliated clinic, the most commonly treated areas are the forehead lines, frown lines on the forehead, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
