Botox (Botulinum toxin) is actually a neurotoxic protein injected into the skin to prevent facial wrinkles.
As a person grows older, fine lines in the skin start to appear, these lines can get prominent with age and sunlight exposure.
We inject anti-wrinkle injections on the superficial layer of the skin, where muscles are lying.
It temporarily relaxes the muscles, resulting in a reduction of the mild to moderate lines on the face.
The patient might feel slight pricks on the face while the doctor is injecting.
However, it is comfortably bearable, and anesthesia is not required.
Total time of procedure: Depending on the areas to be covered, it might take 15 to 45 mins.
What to expect after the procedure:
After the treatment, there will be slight swelling on the injection sites, which disperses in a few hours.
Results start to appear after a week or so. Usually, results last for 6 to 9 months, depending on the individual.
Treatable areas are:
- Crow’s feet
- Eyebrows lifting
- Frown lines
- Gummy smile
