Botox is primarily used to reduce if not diminish the appearance of facial wrinkles. However, it can also be used for some medical conditions such as neck spasms or cervical dystonia, excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis, overactive bladder or urinary incontinence, blepharospasm, or over twitching of the eye, and muscle stiffness. Botox treatment may also help prevent severe headaches or chronic migraines.
Botox procedures use a toxin called OnabotulinumtoxinA. This toxin temporarily prevents a muscle from contracting. When the muscles are relaxed, they are hampered from contracting, hence, lessening the development of unwanted wrinkles and fine lines.
In today’s advanced world, other variants of Botox have emerged including Dysport or abobotulinumtoxinA, Myobloc or rimabotulinumtoxinB, and Xeomin or incobotulinumtoxinA. These varied botulinum toxins differ from each other and are administered in different dosages. Thus, they cannot be substituted for one another.

How does Botox work?
There are muscles that involuntarily contract because of a signal received from the nervous system. The nerves release chemical substances known as acetylcholine that triggers the muscles to contract. Frequent muscle contractions, on the other hand, result in the formation and development of wrinkles, lines, creases, sagging, and fold on the skin.
Botox is a neurotoxic substance that targets the nervous system. It disrupts the nerve that sends signals for muscles to contract. This is how Botox causes temporary muscle weakening or paralysis.
When Botox is injected into the muscle on the skin, the nerves in the area are prevented from releasing acetylcholine. This in turn stops the muscle tissues from contracting and when the muscles do not contract, facial lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds are also reduced.
Botox works to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, between the eyebrows, near the nose and mouth, around and on the lips, along the jawlines, on the chin, and the neck. This procedure can also slow down the formation of new lines as it prevents the contraction of facial muscles.
How does a Botox procedure take?
Botox is a non-invasive procedure that lasts for about ten to twenty minutes. The treatment starts with the application of numbing cream to alleviate any discomforts during the procedure. The Botox substance is then administered using fine needle injections. Depending on the area of the face and the extent of wrinkles to be treated, about three to eight small doses of Botox will be administered.
As much as the procedure is fast, the downtime is also minimal. Other patients may even experience no downtime at all, hence, they can drive home or return to work right after the treatment.
What should you expect after a Botox procedure?
After the procedure, remember not to massage or rub the affected areas. Avoid applying pressure on the affected injected areas to prevent the substance from spreading to other parts of the face. When the toxin spreads to other parts of the body, it may adversely affect the should-be-optimum results of the treatment and may cause complications.
Remember not to get other facial treatments within the next twenty-four to seventy-two hours from the procedure to ensure effective results. You will notice improvements as early as one to two days.
On average, Botox may last for up to four months. However, some cases showed that Botox can last between three to twelve months. Subsequent Botox treatments can be programmed to ensure a well-maintained result.
