BOTOX / Neuronox Injections Treatment (Surgery)
BOTOX / Neuronox is a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum and is used as a paralyzing agent for the muscles of expression. This weakens the fine muscles in the forehead, around the eyes and the glabellar areas as a result frown lines, forehead creases and crows feet are reduced or eliminated.
Reason for performing BOTOX / Neuronox
Treatment is in the form of multiple botox injections made using very fine needles with ice or local anesthetic cream to numb the area. The botox injections are not painful. The effects start to appear in a couple of days and the best result is seen in a week. The results generally last about 4-6 months and then the injection has to be repeated. The botox injections done multiple times may give a longer lasting result.
Injected BOTOX / Neuronox Procedure
While the use of BOTOX Surgery is new in cosmetic surgery, it is by no means untested. For many years, it has been used in the treatment of patients who have spasmodic contractions of the eye or other facial muscles in conditions such as hemi-facial spasm or blepharospasm, as well as certain spasmodic voice disorders.
Recovery timeframe and suggestions
The head should be held elevated for 4 hours or more (no lying down). Ice application to the injected area will help in reduction of bruising and swelling. Makeup can be used within an hour. Expect results to start appearing in a couple of days and best results take a week.
The results of the treatment appear after 3 to 6 days. The skin is visibly relaxed and the wrinkles are shallower. The effect is optimal after 14 days, and lasts 3 to 4 months. The more frequently the treatment is repeated, the longer the effect (from 6 to 9 months).
