Botox injection is an effective cosmetic treatment to reduce facial wrinkles, fine lines around your eyes, and forehead creases, giving a firm and refreshed skin look. Botox is a Botulinum toxin that can block the signals from the nerves, which contract the facial muscles, eliminating or minimizing the wrinkles.
Botox injection is a minimally invasive procedure carried out under local anesthesia and lasts for 3 to 6 months. Usually, the procedure targets the upper half of the face.
The Botox Injection procedure is applied according to specific stages; these stages are:
- The patient undergoing the procedure will get local anesthesia either by using a cream put on the areas to be injected, by a spray, or by injecting the local anesthesia under the skin.
- The doctor uses an unspecified number of Botox injections based on the patient’s condition and the doctor’s method to remove the wrinkles and sagging.
- The doctor injects the Botox in the areas determined before the procedure by using a syringe that had been prepared before.
- The facial muscles get injected consecutively and quickly for immediate results.
