What is Botox Cosmetic?
Botox® is an injection treatment for reducing fine lines and wrinkles on the skin as well as treating hyperhidrosis- excessive sweating of hands or feet. The benefits last from 3 months up to 4 years!
Specifically, Botox® Cosmetic is an injectable neuromodulator comprised of botulinum toxin. This is a neurotoxin that blocks chemical signals from reaching the nerves and temporarily reducing muscle activity. Most often, Botox® treatments improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, caused by repeated contraction of facial muscles from frowning, squinting, or smiling. As a result, it helps correct dynamic facial wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles and keeping them from contracting.
Patients may experience some mild tenderness, swelling, bruising, and localized pain or discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are temporary and typically resolve on their own. Most side effects subside within a few days of an injection session.
When will I see results from Botox injections?
Most patients begin to see the results of Botox® injections within the first 24 to 48 hours of a treatment session. Final results are typically visible within two weeks of an injection session with continued improvement for up to one month after a treatment session. Results of Botox® injections can last for up to four months. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve your desired results.
These sets of twins try BOTOX treatments in different areas of their face. See what happens to frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet with each treatment session. Finally, note that BOTOX is FDA approved to help improve and reduce wrinkles and signs of aging.
How can Botox Cosmetic be used for hyperhidrosis?
In case you didn’t know, an additional use for Botox® includes temporarily reducing or eliminating excessive sweating for six to eight months. The chemical makeup of Botox® makes this treatment application possible. Specifically, the key ingredient of Botox–botulinum toxin. This substance allows the injection to temporarily block chemical signals from the nerves.
In the same manner that the botulinum toxin blocks chemical signals to keep facial muscles from contracting, it also blocks chemical signals that trigger a response from the sweat glands. By keeping the sweat glands in the treated area from responding, Botox® temporarily eliminates or reduces excessive sweating.
