Botox is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces and eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes and thick band in the neck. Botox is the short form of ‘botulinum toxin’, a purified substance that has derived from bacteria.

Botox injections block muscular nerve signals, which then weaken the muscle so that it cannot contract. The eventual result is diminished facial wrinkles. Botox can be used to help smooth:

Forehead furrows
Crow’s feet
Frown lines
Skin bands on the neck

Ideal Candidates

Smiling, squinting, frowning, chewing and other facial movements may eventually cause one of the commonest signs of ageing: wrinkles. These wrinkles can make you appear tired or even angry when you are not. One of the safest and quickest remedies to eliminate wrinkles is an injection of botulinum toxin type A. Botox can be combines with other cosmetic procedures- such as dermal fillers, chemical peels, or microdermabrasion- in order to improve the results. The combination of therapies may help prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.

Procedure

Botox injections may seem a simple procedure to most of us, since it is just a few shots. But it is actually both and art and science that should be done only by an experienced healthcare professional.

There are as many as 43 muscles in a human face and it is vital that the individual who performs botulinum injections understands and pinpoints the correct spots for optimizing the treatment.

During the procedure, a very thin needle is used to inject small amounts of botulinum into specific muscles. With ample care, the healthcare provider chooses the specific muscles responsible for wrinkles. Botox treatment injections usually take less than 15 minutes.

The number of injections you need depend more on your facial features and the extent of wrinkles. Crow’s feet, for instance, generally demand demands two to three injections. On the other hand, furrows above the brow can take five or more.
