Botulinum toxin or botox is better known as a beauty treatment without surgery. In the aesthetic world, Botox Treatment by Nexus-Clinic is used primarily for anti-aging treatments.
Botox works by eliminating wrinkles, especially on the forehead and around the eyes, and can be used to repair certain areas of the face such as lip shape, nose piercing, and eye enlargement.
Botox is a brand of type A botulinum toxin product produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The toxins present in the product have undergone a purification process. Although these toxins can cause toxicity in large quantities, however when given in small quantities through direct injection into certain muscles in the body, Botox prevents chemical signals through the nerves causing the muscles to shrink. When this happens, the muscle will not shrink, the wrinkles will not form and the skin will look smoother.
In general, Botox is safe if taken in small amounts given by certified doctors. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Botox as a temporary treatment to remove wrinkles on adult skin.
Botox is injected by a doctor specifically on the part of the skin that needs to be addressed, such as wrinkles on the skin. The wrinkles usually treated with botox injections are the wrinkles between the eyebrows, the outer edges of the eyes and the wrinkles on the forehead.
In addition to beauty, botox injections are also given to treat other health conditions such as hyperhidrosis, cervical dystonia, lazy eyes, migraine, bladder dysfunction, or wrinkled eyes.
In general, the injection results can be seen within a few days to 14 days. In the meantime, its effectiveness expires in 3–6 months. The number, dose, and extent of the injection site depending on the patient’s response to the therapy and his or her health condition.
After treatment, a patient may be at risk for certain discomforts such as swelling or bruises on the skin, dry eyes, or dizziness. In addition, decreased eyelid or ptosis is a very common complication of post-botox injection. Ptosis sufferers have a reduction in the upper eyelid, which can occur in one or both eyes.
