What is Botox?
Beauty is equated to being young and wrinkle free. The fact remains that wrinkles are inevitable. Many male and female uses Botox to erase time away and capture their younger years. Botox is a drug created from the bacterial toxin botulin, used cosmetically to remove wrinkles by momentarily paralyzing the muscles in the face and can also be used to correct some muscular issues or block certain nerves. The Botox is administered through injections, and is knowingly now one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. The injections are a temporarily fix to wrinkles and eventually the wrinkles will come back after four to six months. It can be poisonous if the dose is not pure and given correctly. Botulinum toxin is one of the greatest toxic matters recognized by man. If in high concentrations, it can result in botulism. Botulism is a life-threatening illness that can end in expiry. Consulting a professional for the injections is highly recommended. Over 6 million Botox treatments are given each year. Even though it is cosmetically popular there are other uses for Botox such as migraines, excessive sweating, bowel disorders, cervical dystonia, strabismus, and bladder disorders. There have been many studies on Botulinum toxin and the ins and out of it. Even after all the cons to Botox, it is still in high demand.
How it Works
Botulinum toxin, better known as Botox is diluted in saline and inserted it straight into the tissue. It can take up to 24-72 hours for the Botox to work. In very rare situations, it may take up to 5 lengthy days for the complete result of Botox to be seen. Injections should not be used in women who breastfeed or are pregnant. Botox is given by injection by an experienced healthcare professional. Excessive underarm sweating? To treat extreme sweating, Botox is injected into the skin. When correcting an overactive bladder, the Botox injection is injected directly into the bladder. It is inserted into the affected muscles when treating wrinkles, eye disorders, and muscle spasms. If a person is experiencing bad migraines then it is injected into the muscles of the head and neck when used to prevent migraines.
One of the most common side effects is Botox being injected into the wrong muscle group or blowout from the injection site, producing paralysis of unintentional muscles. Cosmetic side effects produce unplanned paralysis of facial muscles. Some of the side effects include muscle weakness, trouble swallowing, headaches, flu-like symptoms, and allergic reactions. Cosmetic treatments last a certain number of months, the side effects can last as long. If the injection is administered incorrectly there can be bruising at the site of the injection. Bruising can last up to 7-11 days. A side effect that comes with getting injections of the masseter muscle of the jaw is the loss of muscle function. With the loss of muscle function, it can result in the inability to chew solid foods.
