What Is Botox?
If this is your first time exploring the use of Botox, it is important to understand exactly what this medication is. Botox is a neuromodulator made from the bacterium known as Clostridium botulinum. Botox, a purified protein, used in small, diluted quantities, has been safely used throughout for over 25 years to treat a number of medical problems, and is considered a safe substance for injection. Botox is one of the most well-researched and widely used medications in Canada, “with over 3,000 published studies” and is approved for a number of non-cosmetic medical issues such as hyperhidrosis, muscle spasm and migraines.
Getting to know how Botox is used involves getting to know what it is used for. There is a strong connection that exists between the muscles that lie underneath the facial skin and the skin that overlies them. Over the course of time, as we smile, frown, squint and make other dynamic facial expressions, this type of muscle movement slowly begins to create lines and creases. They begin as temporary when we are young, disappearing after the movement has concluded. Throughout decades however, these lines and creases become permanent and some muscles of the face grow more dominant.
How Is Botox Injected?
As a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure, Botox is highly popular among many people as the risks are low. Risks are related to how it is injected, “as an experienced medical professional should be the only person injecting this medication. The procedure itself however, is quite simple.” First, the area being treated is cleansed before being treated and you have the option to pre-ice if you are concerned about pain.
A tiny amount of the product is injected by a small needle, directly into the selected muscle tissue. Due to the needle being so fine and the quantity of liquid used being such a small amount, the discomfort associated with a Botox “treatment” is minimal Botox deactivates the superficial muscles that attach themselves underneath your skin. The result of this is a relaxation effect that causes wrinkles to soften and ‘relax’ while preventing these muscles from forming new wrinkles in the future. Depending on where Botox is applied, it can appear as a non-invasive lift or it can be very subtle, so that only you and your partner will notice. Unlike a more invasive of facial cosmetic procedure, a patient will be able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment.
If you are looking for more information on the effectiveness of Botox and its application, there are many resources that we recommend browsing through. For example, an identical twin study conducted by an American Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon – Otolaryngologist Head and Neck Surgeons has assessed the effectiveness of neuromodulators such as Botox if used on a regular basis. Twins were followed over a decade and assessed. The results are available via http://archfaci.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=481051.
