If you are a new Botox user and don’t have much knowledge of these anti-aging injections, continue reading to know what exactly is Botulinum Toxin and how it works.

What is a Botox Injection?

Botox injection is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to treat moderate to severe frown lines on face in adults. It is usually injected into the area around the side of the eyes to temporarily treat crow’s feet lines.

How it works?

These injections smooth out facial wrinkles and prevent furrow formation on face and neck by paralyzing the associated muscles. They can thus be used to treat facial wrinkles caused primarily by the frequent movement of the muscles on the skin.

Is it a painful procedure?

Even a single dose of Botox injection is enough to obtain good results, and its effects on any part of the body last between 3 to 4 months. The procedure is very simple and easy to perform. Most patients find the injections only cause a mild sting that lasts for only a few seconds.

Selecting a Botox doctor

Though the procedure is very simple (approximately 10 minutes for the entire treatment), the side effects associated with the injection can be life threatening, so be very careful when selecting a practitioner. Go for a highly trained medical professional with a comprehensive knowledge of facial anatomy and a vast experience of treating wrinkles with Botox injections.

Side effects of Botox Injection

If injected by non-professionals, Botox injections can cause potential side effects that will affect not only the associated muscles but also the surrounding area. These side effects include problems in swallowing, speaking, or breathing, itching, rash, red itchy welts, wheezing, asthma symptoms and dizziness or feeling faint. Other side effects of Botox injection include discomfort or pain at the injection site, headache, neck pain, dry mouth and dry eyes. Call your doctor or get medical help immediately if you have any of these problems any time after the treatment.
