Botox Injections, Botox Cosmetic Treatment Procedures

The Solution

Ever wondered about knitting up your brow to show those worry lines on your forehead and between your eyes? It may be a sign of maturity and experience, but it tends to give away your age and to detract from youthful appearance.

With normal aging, some wrinkles occur in the skin perpendicular to the underlying muscle fibers. They are due to the repeated forces generated by the contractions of the delicate facial muscles. These are dynamic wrinkles which vary with facial expressions and respond to cosmetic denervation. Therefore you need not show those frown lines or worry lines anymore.

Botox is a safe, effective and convenient solution for you!

The Procedure

The skin is prepared (sometimes by chilling) and then sterilized with alcohol swabs. A very small amount of Botox is injected, very precisely, at several locations on the face, using a tiny micro needle. The simple ‘bug bite’ impression is virtually pain free and patients can immediately carry on with their normal activities of the day. But the effect is dramatic!

The Mechanism

When applied correctly, Botox blocks the normal nerve impulses that stimulate muscle contraction selectively. These muscles relax and the overlying skin remains smooth. The other unaffected muscles act in a normal fashion so that other typical facial expressions of thought and personality are virtually unchanged.

Botulinum toxin type A is a neuromuscular blocking agent that is produced by the obligate anaerobic bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. The toxins exert their effect at the neuromuscular junction by inhibiting the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, producing a flaccid paralysis. It has been used safely and effectively for strabismus, blepharospasm, hemifacial spasm, and other dystonias. Botulinum A toxin (BTX-A) is now used to treat hyper-functional facial lines, lines caused by the repeated forces generated by the muscles.

However, Botox does not affect lines that develop due to the degenerative aging process and/or sun damage. These other wrinkles are not related to facial muscle contractions per se. Rather, they reflect the changes in the basic skin composition and elasticity. Similarly, sagging skin is not affect by Botox.
