Botox works by restricting the movement of facial muscles as we age. The neuromuscular drug prevents the transmission of chemicals that initiates wrinkling of muscles allowing the skin to flatten out and appear younger. Not only does Botox act as a cosmetic remedy, but it also reduces the occurrence of a headache and migraines.
Your purified protein, Botox is also known as Botulinum toxin type A. Initially, the FDA had approved to use this protein in treating muscular spasms and only later was it approved to use in cosmetic treatment.
What to expect?
Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment available, and it has been successfully administered to millions of patients worldwide. It helps reduce wrinkles on the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes. As the procedure does not cause any pain, we do not administer anesthesia for our patients. This allows them to relax as we help them glow. The best part about this cosmetic correction is that its effects would last for a period of three to six months.
Do I need to be careful?
As professionals, we want the best for our patients, and hence, before we attempt to begin a cosmetic procedure, we would encourage patients to discuss with us their medical history and present medical conditions.
