What can you expect from Botox?

Botox injections are a kind of medication that use a type of botulinum toxin for paralyzing muscle activity for a specific time period. This toxin is obtained from a microbe which could lead to botulism. The reason why Botox is, nevertheless, popular is due to its ability to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles.

Besides its widely popular cosmetic purpose, Botox injections are used for the treatment of excessive sweating, repetitive neck spasms, overactive bladder and lazy eye. It has also proven successful in treating chronic migraines.

If you take blood thinners, you will have to stop taking them for a while before your Botox procedure since it could increase any cases of bleeding and bruising.

Most people remain comfortable during their Botox procedure but the doctor may recommend numbing the area before your treatment. He may use ice, topical or vibration anesthesia to numb the treatment area.

Botox treatment is safe and gives you the desired results as long as you ensure getting it from a well experienced doctor.
