Botox Cosmetic is an injectable wrinkle relaxer. It temporarily paralyses muscle using botulinum toxin type A, specifically OnabotulinumtoxinA. This reduces the visibility of facial wrinkles. Botox is a non-surgical procedure. It is regarded as a risk-free and effective treatment for wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes. It can also be applied to the brow bone between the eyes. Botox was first approved by the FDA in 1989 for the treatment of blepharospasm as well as other eye muscle problems. Botox was approved by the FDA as a cosmetic treatment for mild to severe frown lines between the brows in 2002. In 2013, the FDA approved it for the treatment of wrinkles around the corners of the eyes.
Which body areas can be treated with Botox?
- To treat moderate to severe frown lines around the eyes, also known as crow’s feet lines, in the area between the brows (glabellar region).
- Botox has also been approved by the FDA to treat a variety of medical conditions, including bladder overactivity, chronic migraines, excessive underarm sweating and lower limb spasticity.
Botox Cosmetic blocks nerve signals as well as muscle contractions temporarily. This reduces the visibility of wrinkles around the eyes and within the brows. It can also slow the formation of new lines by stopping facial muscle contraction. It is a non-invasive procedure. It does not require any incisions or general anaesthesia. A topical anaesthetic or ice can numb the treatment area if you are concerned about pain or discomfort.
During this procedure of 10 minutes, your provider will administer 3-5 injections of botulinum toxin type A using a thin needle. They will inject the selected space between the brows. To smooth out crow’s feet, three injections on each side of the eye are usually required.
What not to do after Botox Treatment?
Rubbing, massaging, or applying pressure to the treated area is not recommended as it can spread to other body parts. This can have a negative impact on your results. After being injected between the brows, you must not lie down as well as bend over for 3 to 4 hours. This may cause the Botox to slip beneath the orbital rim. This could result in eyelid drooping. There will be little to no downtime following the treatment. In most cases, you should be able to do your normal activities right away.
It’s critical to understand possible changes and set realistic goals. Results should be visible within 1-2 days of treatment. Botox Cosmetic’s full effect can last up to four months. It can also help to prevent the re-emergence of fine lines by relaxing the muscles.
