A Botox Aesthetics (BTA) treatment is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes lines that developed over time. What is being injected is a natural, purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria, known as Botulinum Toxin Type A (BTA). Very low doses of Botox are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the overactive muscles that cause lines to form. The muscles into which Botox were injected become “relaxed”, thus reducing the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. The results are dramatic and apparently within days. These wrinkles are termed dynamic wrinkles because they come on only with muscle action.
BTA is primarily used to eliminate the wrinkles in the forehead, brow area and crow’s feet around the eyes . The effects of BTA are confined to the injected region; it does not travel throughout the body. BTA has a 60- year long history in aesthetic medicine and to date, more than 7 million people have used it.
Action of BTA takes effect 2-4 days and generally lasts between 5-6 months. The two internationally recognized and FDA approved BTA brands are BOTOX® and Dysport .
While there are doctors who will virtually “erase” wrinkles, we at Biogenesis Clinic use Botox to enhance one’s features and give a subtle lift. The result- you will look refreshed and rejuvenated, like you have just came back from holiday. We can lift (yes, LIFT by relaxing muscles) various parts of the face and neck, lessen shadows along the jaw and chin as well as to reshape faces with Botox alone.
When we frown, blink or squint, we gather tissue into a fold which can cause a chronic crease in our skin. This result in crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles and frown lines. Botox blocks nerve impulses to muscles, causing relaxation. Once a muscle action has been relaxed, the existing creases fade and further ones are prevented.
Botox treatment also shows remarkable results in brow lifting. It can widen the eye area and give you an open, refreshed looking appearance.
Action of Botox takes effect 2-4 days and generally lasts between 5-6 months.
Most women consider a square jaw to be rather severe and masculine. An oval shaped face is generally considered more feminine and is what women want.
What to expect from treatment?
One treatment of Botox is all it takes to create a slimmer, more feminine lower face.
Treatment takes around 10 minutes. After injection, it takes 2-4 weeks for the treatment to begin taking effect and the optimal result occurs in 2 –3 months.
The result will last 6-12 months, sometimes longer, depending on individual.
Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is caused by stimulation of the sweat glands by nerve endings which descend from higher centers in the brain. Sweat glands require a nerve impulse to activate. Without this stimulation, they won’t secrete. By injecting Botox into the problems areas such as underarms, hands and feet, the related nerve impulse is temporarily relaxed and prevented from reaching the sweat gland. This, in turn, stops sweat production in the treated area.
What to expect from treatment?
Botox is injected into multiple sites in the skin of the underarms. Underarm sweating will be decreased by 90% within 48 hours and full effect will be seen within 1 week. The benefit of the treatment will last between 6 to 10 months.
