What is BOTOX?

BOTOX is a drug prepared from botulin. It is cosmetically used to relax facial muscles. It also refines the folds and wrinkles to give refreshed look to your skin. 
Botox treatment is the most common non surgical treatment with predictable results, taking away years from your face.

How does Botox work?

BOTOX works by simply relaxing the muscles underneath the skin to create a smooth and refreshed appearance.

What are the wrinkles commonly treated by Botox?

The most commonly treated areas include:

* the lines around the eyes known as crows feet

* the horizontal lines across the forehead.

* the frown lines & folding of skin between the eyebrows.

* To reduce the gummy smile, the gum show when you smile

* The downturn lips which gives you sad look even when you are happy.

* To reduce excessive sweating

* To improve neck lines and to define jaw line

Am I a good candidate for BOTOX?

BOTOX is best suited for patients who do not want surgery, but desire reduction or elimination of wrinkles in certain areas. There are no medical contraindications to BOTOX injections, but patient using blood thinners for other health reasons should stop for couple of days to avoid bruising.

When are the effects of Botox seen?

Muscle relaxes within few days of BOTOX treatment and maximal wrinkle reduction is seen later two weeks after injection.

How long does Botox last?

BOTOX effects lasts up-to 4-6 months,at which point muscle movement returns to normal.

Will BOTOX make me look like a Mask without expression?

No. That happens only when high dose is given when the muscle relaxes completely and you can't express any more. If done by an experienced doctor you will look NATURAL, RELAXED and REFRESHED, without looking 'done'. Friends simply say that you look well rested and great!

How many times can I have BOTOX injected?

There is no limit to the number of injections a patient can have over time.

Do BOTOX injections ever become ineffective?

Some patients develop resistance to BOTOX over time, but this is very uncommon. Sometimes you may require more dose of botox to relax the same muscle after repeated usage.

What are the risks of BOTOX?

BOTOX is extremely 
safe. One minimal risk of the injection process is bruising, which is rare and resolves quickly. Another potential risk is weakness in surrounding muscles, created by unwanted spread of the BOTOX. With proper injection technique and careful followup of after procedure, the risk can be minimized.

Can I work out or continue my normal routine after BOTOX treatment?

You will be able to continue your normal routine; there is no down time for BOTOX treatment. It is best to keep the head upright for 4 hours to allow BOTOX to settle into the designated areas. It is best to avoid deep exfoliation treatments and facials for a couple of days.You can apply makeup after treatment as you normally would.

Do my wrinkles look worse when the effect of BOTOX Vanish?

No! Your face will never get worse if you stop using BOTOX or when it wears off. BOTOX slows down the clock of aging. When you stop getting treatments at the very minimum, you will simply return to where you started. If you use BOTOX for a number of years and then stop, your muscles learn to relax and therefore you will end up looking a little better than when you originally started.

Where does BOTOX go in my body?

BOTOX stays local to the muscle where it was injected. After the injection, BOTOX is simply metabolised and broken down into natural byproducts within a few hours.
