Botox treatment can help to smooth wrinkles and fine lines, remove forehead frown lines and crows feet. This method is safe, and the results can last for 3 to 6 months.
The dental surgeon will use a fine needle to inject small amounts of Botulinum Toxin A into different areas of the face. Since the needle is tiny and little medication is used, there is minimal pain from the injection. You do not require anaesthesia and you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately.
Some patients might experience slight bruising at the injection site, so patients are advised not to exercise or wear make up for a few hours.
Botulinum Toxin blocks the impulses from the nerve to facial muscles that control the fine lines and wrinkles. It then relaxes the muscles so that they will not contract before the injection. Once the treatment is complete, the overlying skin will become unwrinkled and smooth while the facial muscles that are left untreated will contract leaving facial expression unaffected.
Botulinum Toxin injections have been used effectively and safely for years to treat various cosmetic and non-cosmetic problems. It is now one of the most popular treatments used to reverse visible signs of ageing and get rid of wrinkles and fine lines.
If you feel wrinkles make you look older than your age, Botulin Toxin A can smooth them to give a more youthful appearance. It may require two to three days to see the improvement and almost one week for the final result to be seen.
The results of the treatment can last from three to four months. To maintain results, you will need to repeat the procedure every four to six months although the duration varies from patient to patient and Botulinum Toxin A may not be as effective for people who are over 65.
