Botox has been gaining more and more popularity in recent years given it’s safe and effective nature. The procedure utilizes the Botulinum Toxin, which works to remedy aging side-effects by removing or minimizing wrinkles. Botulinum Toxin is considered very safe when applied in very low doses, which is the case in the application of Botox, which means the overall risks involved in this procedure are minimal or non-existent.
Another reason which can explain the surging popularity of Botox in recent years is the fact that the procedure itself is very non-invasive and does not require surgery. It has been considered the most effective means of removing or minimizing the visual signs of aging, and it can have an amazing impact on the overall appearance of an individual’s face. Some of the more popular treatment areas for Botox include the area surrounding the eyes, the area between the eyebrows, and the forehead – all of which are prone to wrinkles.
So what is the procedure involved in receiving a Botox treatment? Prior to the procedure beginning, an anesthetic will be applied to the targeted area to minimize any discomfort experienced during the procedure. The procedure involves a small amount of Botox being injected into the targeted area – typically 1 – 2 CCs. The main purpose of the injection is to affect the muscles beneath the skin which are directly related to the wrinkles. The injection works to relax these muscles, which then affects the skin, causing it to appear smoother. Upon completion of the procedure, the affected area will be iced to minimize any discomfort or swelling.
The post-procedure recovery period is minimal, and a patient can benefit greatly by adhering to the general recommended guidelines such as:
- Avoid touching the affected area for at least 4 hours after the procedure
- Do not engage in heavy exercise or other activities which may involve significant levels of physical exertion
- Do not lay down flat for at least 4 hours after the procedure has concluded
- Do not apply makeup or other cosmetics to the affected area for at least 4 hours
Typically, a Botox treatment will last anywhere between 3 and 6 months before it is necessary to receive another procedure.
