In the 1980’s, Botox was introduced to the general population as a modern injectable facial-treatment. It is purified protein that is injected into a targeted area of the face to alleviate wrinkles. It is one of the most popular short-term methods for treating wrinkles. It is also known to improve eye coordination, treat severe armpit perspiration, and alleviate migraines.
Nerve cells beneath the skin release a chemical called acetylcholine, which causes the formation of facial wrinkles. The release of acetylcholine causes muscles to contract, folding layers of skin, thus forming lines. Botox disrupts the releases of acetylcholine, temporarily preventing wrinkles from forming. The forehead, brow, and wrinkled areas on the side of a patien’s eyes (also known as crow’s feet) are the most frequent areas of the face where Botox is injected.
Botox alleviates close to 80% of wrinkles for between three to four months. It is a short-term treatment that requires multiple visits, depending on what the patient is attempting to achieve.
Patients can expect a straightforward process when opting for Botox. It can be administered during a routine appointment, with all discomfort being mitigated thanks to a numbing cream. Each individual treatment session takes 20 minutes on average.
Patients often come in with concerns regarding the effectiveness and safety of Botox. It is important to remember that it is an injectable that is specially designed to target the exact muscles causing wrinkling.
