Botox injection and its effectiveness

Botox injections are one  of the methods that have been widely used in recent years to rejuvenate and eliminate skin wrinkles. This substance is also used to treat some diseases, but the main focus is on removing skin wrinkles. With age, aging affects the skin and the first signs start from fine lines around the eyes. In most cases, these symptoms start and get worse over the age of 30.

What is Botox or Botulinum Injection?

Botox is originally derived from a bacterium. Clostridium botulinum is a bacterium found in many natural formations such as lakes, soils, forests, and so on. Also live in the intestines of mammals and fish and crabs. This bacterium is normally harmless unless the number is too high. Botulinum toxin, which is derived from this bacterium, targets the nervous system. In this way, it disrupts the process of sending nerve signals and alters the function of neurons.

The injection is done with the help of this substance and a small concentration of it is used in each injection. Botulinum prevents the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter, and the contraction of muscle cells. These contractions are abnormal and cause wrinkles in different areas. In this way, Botox injection prevents the muscles from contracting and does not cause wrinkles in areas such as around the eyes, frown line, smile line, forehead and..

In fact, Botox will eliminate wrinkles by stopping the movement of facial muscles. The effect of this treatment stays in the person for a while and then it will gradually disappear. When the effect of this injection is over, the muscles start moving again and lines and lines reappear on the face. To prevent this from happening, people can re-inject botulinum toxin and re-create the effects on their face. This process can be repeated several more times.

In what areas can Botox injections be performed? 

Botulinum can not be injected anywhere on the face. Given that this operation causes the muscles to be paralyzed in the desired areas, care must be taken when injecting and where it is applied.

Before injection, the pre-defined area will be marked. It is very important that the injection is given exactly at the marked point so that the person achieves the best results from this injection. If this does not happen, the result of Botox injection will not be pleasant for the person at all. The exact amount of Botox to be injected must also be chosen correctly. If the doctor injects too much Botox into the person, his face will become artificial and the final results will not be pleasant at all.

Therefore, using the services of a clinic or doctor is very important and injections in unauthorized centers such as hairdressers are not recommended at all. Areas where botulinum is injected include the following:

  1. Forehead line
  2. The upper part of the eyebrows to raise this area
  3. Between eyebrows or frown line
  4. The corners of the eyes and the area of ​​crow’s feet wrinkles
  5. Above the edges of the nose
  6. Next to the lips where the laugh line is
  7. Above the lips
  8. Middle lip
  9. Chin
  10. A specific area in the throat
  11. Lower cheeks
  12. Underarms and palms to control sweating

Of course, each of these sections has a point where the doctor determines exactly where to inject. Of course, Botox is also used to treat various diseases and may be injected into other areas of the body, such as the neck.

Therapeutic properties of Botox

Not all the properties of this treatment can be found in beauty issues. Although a large percentage of people inject to get a better appearance and a younger face, but other people around the world inject Botox because of its important therapeutic properties. Apart from beauty, Botox has very important and amazing healing properties. Elimination of muscle spasms is one of the important therapeutic applications of Botox. This substance will neutralize these spasms for a while by preventing the brain message from reaching the muscles.

Pre-Botox injection care

Before doing Botox, a series of precautions should be taken for better effect and avoid side effects. Some of these precautions are related to the use of drugs that may adversely affect botulinum toxin or cause drug interactions. To observe all preoperative care, pay attention to the following points:

Do not take anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen and aspirin, vitamin E, omega 3 and یک for a week before the injection. Drug use, alcohol at least one day before Botox injection is dangerous and causes bruising and bleeding.

2- If you have common diseases such as flu and cold, antiviral treatments should be performed before the injection.

4- A series of precautions are also related to the day of injection. Do not apply makeup before Botox injection. This treatment is done by a doctor and you can go home. On the day of Botox injection, you should also keep your skin clean, wear comfortable clothes, be completely relaxed and do not worry at all about the final results, and proceed with the injection with a reasonable expectation.

Care after Botox injection

After doing Botox, you should also consider a series of things:

Avoid strenuous activity on the first day after injection. These activities speed up the blood flow in your body and this will not be pleasant at all for the injection site.

There is also a possibility of injury to this point of the face during heavy exercise. Your body needs rest and relaxation after Botox injections to respond well to this change.

2- Do not touch or apply pressure to the injection sites; Because the injectable material may be transferred to other parts of the face.

Massage of this area is also not recommended at all. Because Botox in the first days is not yet stable enough in your body and it is possible to move it in the face. This will make the final results of this injection not to your liking at all.

3- After the injection, some redness and swelling appear, which may last for several days. During this time, try to stay out of the sun to use a good sunscreen.

4- If there is bruising in the injection site, you can use an ice pack on it to make a faster recovery.

5- In the first days after Botox injection, completely avoid alcohol and alcoholic beverages. This is because it dilutes the blood and greatly enhances side effects such as bruising and swelling in your appearance. Alcohol and tobacco use will slow down your recovery.

6- Your doctor may prescribe painkillers after the injection. It is very important that in the days after the injection, be sure to take any medication with the full consultation of your Botox injection specialist and do not go for different medications arbitrarily.

7. For at least two nights, you should avoid sleeping on the injection site. This puts a lot of pressure on this area and increases the chance of the Botox being injected into your face. This displacement causes Botox to work on another part of the face instead of the designated area.

The powder is diluted with sterilized sodium chloride solution during treatment and poured into a syringe with a very thin tip. Hence it reduces the pain a lot.
