What Is Botox?
The name Botox is actually the name of the brand that creates Botox injectable liquids. The liquid is produced from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in the natural environment where it is largely inactive and non-toxic.
There are three main formulae that create the botox that is used in cosmetic treatments:
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is a neurotoxin, which when used in the right quantity can relax facial muscles. Essentially Botox stops the signal sent by the brain to the muscles, which means the muscles don’t move. The temporary pause in the movement of the muscles leads to a pause in the creation of wrinkles.
When Botox stops the muscles from developing wrinkles it makes the appearance of the face younger and smoother. Patients who get Botox treatments often say that their skin even grows softer post-treatment.
It is important to note that Botox is an ideal treatment for dynamic wrinkles and not static wrinkles. At Aesthetics Medispa, Pune, we always explain to our patients the difference between static and dynamic wrinkles, before they decide to opt for a Botox treatment.
Dynamic wrinkles are those formed by facial movements, such as squinting (think crow’s feet), smiling (think smile lines) and furrowing of the brow (think forehead wrinkles and frown lines). Botox is a quick, safe and effective solution for these wrinkles.
Why Do Patients Opt For Botox Treatments?
The main reason why patients opt for Botox Treatments is its miraculous effect on wrinkles. The correct use of Botox immediately transforms the patient’s face into a young and wrinkle-free one!
Botox injections are well known for their relaxing and anti-ageing effect on wrinkles near the eyes, between the eyebrows and the most common frown lines. Tiny doses of Botox injections are effective and minimally invasive. Botox helps in eliminating the wrinkles frown lines and crow’s feet completely resulting in a well-rested rejuvenated look to the face.
