Botox 101

By Les Nessman

[I:]The most popular non-surgical solution at cosmetic medical practices is Botox, an injectable wrinkle-reducing solution produced by Allergan. Individuals of nearly every age have a mixture of possibilities for evaluating Botox.

Botox was first authorized by the Food and Drug Administration for medical related use in 1989 to remedy eye muscle issues, which includes spasm. This foe-turned-friend hails from the nerve toxin that creates botulism, a rare but yet life threatening disease from bacterium Clostridium botulinum. These rod-shaped spores can grow in improperly prepared or stored foods, the intestines of infants, and infected wounds.

“I’ve had individuals in their 20s enquire about Botox, and it really depends on one’s genetics, diet, and sun damage” says Dr. Saghy Motamedy. “There is no “age” for Botox when you have wrinkles and you’re not completely happy, it can be restored with Botox,” she says.

Besides getting rid of wrinkles quickly, Botox can also be used to raise eyebrows in a natural approach, and helps to improve a person’s face giving them a far more younger looking, alert-looking overall look.

Although the brow and forehead are still the usual area of injection, here are some of the more recent ways cosmetic dermatologists are using Botox:

Eyebrows usually are gently lifted to alter angles and arches. Should a woman, for instance, looks sad or heavy – or masculine – Botox can bring her a happier, open appearance.

Strong creases or dimpling in the chin is usually diminished. The corners of the mouth that begin to sag from gravity and time should be lifted.

Some creases on the neck connected either with the aging process or gaining weight could be wiped out. The chest just on top of the cleveage area may develop creases when women invest too much time under the sun. Botox injections will help soften some of those wrinkles.

Many clients also seek Botox for the malady hyperhidrosis, also known as increased sweating, for areas like the palms of the hands and fingers, armpits, and feet.

Migraine headache victims can get help by having Botox treatments in the sides or back of the head, forehead or brow area.

Botox was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for cosmetic applications in 2002 and causes virtually no discomfort, and is conducted without a down time in well under 15 minutes, with a minuscule chance of complications.

The results of Botox last for approximately 4 months, which will increase after recurring injections.

Skin Clinic MD is a medspa community of plastic surgeons, cosmetic dermatologists, and aesthetic physicians with more than 5,500 medical spa members world-wide and offers patients resources for Botox in Houston Texas and offers information on nonsurgical cosmetic medical technologies and treatments for skin clinic & laser clinic patients.
