Botox & Fillers: Everything You Need To Know About Them

An Overview Of Botox Injections

Botox is a neuromodulator used to relax facial muscles and decrease wrinkles. Botox injections are performed by licensed medical professionals. These professionals inject botulinum toxin A into the facial muscles to reduce muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. When Botulinum toxin is injected, it blocks signals from the nerve cells to the muscles to reduce muscle activity and decrease wrinkles.

Why Is Botox Used?

The most common reason why Botox injections are used is to reduce wrinkles. However, botox can also help with the following:

  • Diminishing lip lines
  • Eliminating crow’s feet lines
  • Temporary relief from migraines 
  • Treating excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Reducing muscle spasms in the face, neck, and other areas of the body

The Perfect Client Profile For This Treatment

Botox injections are suitable for both men and women of any age. However, Botox should not be used in people with certain medical conditions, such as:

  • Neuromuscular diseases
  • Muscle or nerve disorders
  • Weakness in the facial muscles
  • An allergy to Botox or its ingredients

Botox Procedure: Before & After

You can take some steps before and after botox injections to ensure the best possible results.

Before The Procedure

If you’re particularly sensitive to pain, inform your doctor before the procedure. Your skin will be numbed so that you won’t feel much discomfort. Using ice and vibration anesthesia are two ways to numb the area.

However, other methods may be necessary depending on where excessive sweating occurs, such as topical anesthesia or massaging the area.

After The Procedure

For the first day after your procedure, avoid rubbing or massaging the treated area. This will help to prevent the toxin from moving to a different area. You can return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure.
