Reading Between The Lines: Answering Common Botulinum Toxin FAQs

Nowadays, looking young is within everyone’s reach. Maintaining a younger-looking appearance for long is no longer impossible—thanks to the powers of Botulinum Toxin treatment.

For years, doctors and professional aestheticians have been using Botulinum Toxin to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. Doctors also use Botulinum Toxin to treat neck lines, frown lines and nasal scrunches. This treatment raises already sagging skin, giving the face a toned appearance.

Botulinum toxin (Botulinum Toxin) is a drug made from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The complex nature of this facial aesthetic trend raises numerous questions, from interested users to beginning practitioners alike.

How does Botulinum Toxin remove wrinkles and other facial lines?

In order for muscles to contract, nerves release a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine at the junction where nerve ends meet muscle cells. This chemical messenger attaches to the cells’ receptors, causing them to shorten or contract.

Injected Botulinum Toxin blocks the signals by preventing the release of acetylcholine, which also prevents facial muscles from contracting. With Botulinum Toxin, muscles can no longer contract, which reduces wrinkles and other lines.

How is the procedure performed?

Botulinum Toxin procedures only take a few minutes. No anaesthesia is required for the process. Facial aestheticians inject the drug into a specific area of the face and leaves minor discomfort to the patient. Results appear after three to seven days. Patients should avoid alcohol intake at least a week before the treatment and must stop taking anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce bruising.

What are the medical and cosmetic uses of Botulinum Toxin?

Botulinum Toxin is known for its capability to iron out wrinkles and lines. Other than being a famous vanity product, Botulinum Toxin is also useful for treating medical conditions that concern eye squints, leaky bladder and migraine. The drug can treat over 20 medical conditions such as the following:

  • Crossed eyes
  • Blepharospasm (Spasm of the eyelids)
  • Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
  • Overactive bladder issues
  • Crow’s feet lines
  • Post-stroke upper limb spasticity
  • Severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms

How long does a Botulinum Toxin injection last?

The effects of the procedure last for four to six months. Muscle action eventually returns, encouraging the reappearance of wrinkles and lines. Patients must visit their facial aestheticians for another treatment.
