Botulinum toxin or botox has been known for centuries and used for medical reasons for over 50 years. It was approved for cosmetic use in 2002. Facial muscles pull skin causing wrinkles.
Botox relaxes these muscles to give a smooth appearance. It is used against:
vertical glabellar lines between eyebrows
horizontal lines on forehead
crow’s feet or the lines radiating from the corners of eyes
Wrinkles flatten in 2-7 days after injections and the effect lasts for 3-6 months. Dosage varies with the age, health, physical factors, and medication being taken by each patient. This treatment is a strict no-no for pregnant and lactating women.
Rarely, a patient experiences short lived side effects such as pain, nausea, bruised feeling, and flu-like symptoms. Sometimes, this treatment causes a drooping eyelid that is serious and can last longer.
Professional guidance is compulsory to avoid paralysis-like side effects. Visit SilkDerm Laser Medical Clinic for more on botox injections in Allen, Texas.
