What Is Botox?


Botox is a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment with millions of treatments administered across the world every year. Its active ingredient is derived from an organism called clostridium botulinum, which occurs naturally in the environment.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is mainly used as a treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

In extremely small concentrations, it is injected into muscles below lines and wrinkles, preventing signals from reaching the cells to contract or shorten; this process essentially paralyzing them halting the onset of wrinkles.

Botox is also useful in other medical applications for treating a variety of problems, including eyelid spasms, neck and shoulder spasms, migraine, hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), strabismus (crossed eyes), overactive bladder and hay fever.

Although Botox is the name that people apply to all botulinum treatments, it is actually a brand name; others available include Dysport®, Vistabel® and Myobloc®.

Is Botox Safe?

The toxin that Botox is derived from is poisonous, but the doses are so minute in medical applications that it is perfectly safe. After all, our bodies can cope with a glass or two of wine, which contains alcohol—another type of poison. In fact, the FDA has reported very few cases of adverse reactions to the treatment during aesthetic use, making it one of the safest cosmetic treatments around.

Am I a Suitable Candidate for Botox?

The majority of people will be suitable for Botox, but there are some exceptions:

-There is no age limit to using Botox although it is thought that over 65s generally won’t benefit from it in terms of wrinkle prevention.

-Under 18s will not be treated with Botox because the muscles are not fully developed.

-If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, your doctor will advise you not to have the treatment.

-If you have an allergy to eggs, Botox may not be a good idea as the same protein found in eggs is also contained in Botox.

-Botox is effective on “dynamic” wrinkles—i.e. those that are caused by facial expressions. If you can see the wrinkle all the time (when your face is in a resting state), Botox will not be as effective. For these, you might want to consider other wrinkle treatments, such as dermal fillers.

Do I Need to Make Special Preparations for Botox?

Botox is administered as an injection, and so there are a few things you should avoid for a week or so before your injections to minimise bruising. This includes any anticoagulant or blood-thinning drugs, including aspirin and ibuprofen, which should be avoided to decrease the risk of bruising. Some dermatologists go further with their list of dos and don'ts, including fish oils, ginger, cinnamon, green tea, multivitamins and red wine.

If you do bruise easily, you may want to start taking Arnica, which some people have reported to be effective.

What Is the Procedure for Botox?

Botox is administered by injection. Your doctor will mark out the appropriate injection points on your face and using a fine-needled syringe, inject the Botox gel directly into the muscles. You will feel a little discomfort but no sedation or local anaesthesia will be required.

Following your Botox treatment, you can resume your normal activities, although it is recommended:

-Not to rub the treated area and avoid make-up until the next day

-Avoid sleeping on your face for the first night

-Don’t do any strenuous exercise or activity for 12 hours after treatment

-Avoid excessive alcohol consumption for 24 hours
