What is Botox?
Botox is a natural purified protein which works as a muscle relaxant. It is used to relax the aged, hyperactive muscles of the face and neck to soften and fade wrinkles.
With repeated sessions the hyperactivity and bulk of the muscles reduces and so does the dose requirement of Botox.
Botox not only fades existing wrinkles but also puts a ‘pause’ on the aging process preventing new wrinkles from appearing. The aging process resumes from the paused point onwards whenever the treatment is stopped.
Is it a painful process?
Botox is infused into the tiny muscles of the face with a very fine needle which is nearly as thin as your hair. Furthermore this is done using ice as a numbing agent or after application of an anesthetic cream. You do not feel anything while the treatment is being done.
What does the treatment involve?
The procedure takes 10-30 minutes. It is a painless procedure done after application of anesthetic cream if required.
When is the improvement visible?
The effect starts becoming apparent in about 3-4 days as it takes some time to reduce the muscle hyperactivity.
How often does the treatment need to be repeated?
Since this is a natural protein, our body knows how to metabolize it and therefore the effect fades off after 4-6 months. Ideally, the treatment should be repeated once in 5-6 months. Persons who start undergoing Botox for preventive-aging around their mid 30’s, may require Botox only once a year.
What happens if I do not want to repeat or continue the treatment?
It is not a compulsion to take repeated treatments, it is absolutely alright to try it once and repeat it only if you feel like repeating it. Botox does not cause accelerated aging when the treatment is stopped it merely ‘un-pauses’ it.
Botox for underarm sweating?
Botox can also be used to reduce excessive sweating in the underarms and thus prevent body odor and wet stains on clothes. The results last for about a year.
How safe is this procedure?
This is a US FDA approved procedure. That means it has the highest standard of safety and efficacy. It does not harm the skin or body; neither in the short term or long term. But it has to be done by a qualified and trained Dermato-Cosmetologist who has in depth knowledge of the subject.
