In order to be a good candidate for Botox you should:
- Be between 18 and 65 years old
- Be in strong overall health
- Have realistic expectations
- Have wrinkles that can be successfully treated
There are 43 muscles in your face and it’s vital that the person who performs botulinum toxin injections understands and pinpoints the correct spots to optimize your treatment.
A very thin needle is used to inject small amounts of botulinum toxin into specific muscles. By carefully choosing specific muscles, your healthcare provider weakens only the wrinkle-producing muscles, preserving your natural facial expressions.
Botulinum toxin treatment injections usually take less than 15 minutes
Botox is directly injected into particular facial muscles using a very small needle. Discomfort lasts a few seconds and is minimal. Once injected, Botox blocks nerve impulses from targeting particular facial muscles (effectively immobilizing them) so that the skin can relax, smoothing wrinkles and facial lines in targeted areas for the treatment period.. Botox injections are administered on an outpatient basis and can be repeated once the results fade
- Time required: Half an hour
- More strenuous activity: Avoid strenuous activity on the treatment day and following days
- Final appearance: Within four to seven days
Don’t rub or massage the treated areas after the wrinkle treatment because it can cause the botulinum toxin to spread across to another area of your face. If this happens, you could have temporary facial weakness or drooping.
It is very unlikely that the toxin might spread beyond the treatment area, causing botulism-like signs and symptoms such as breathing problems, trouble swallowing, muscle weakness and slurred speech
Bruising and pain at the injection site
Temporary facial weakness or drooping
There is no down time or recovery time for botulinum toxin injections.You may resume normal activities immediately
