How To Get Rid Of Wrinkles? – BOTOX Injections

February 1, 2022

You walk into a party, towards a group of merry folks.  Their perfect smiles, soft and smooth skin and flawless faces make you wonder…

That’s nothing similar to what you saw in the mirror before you left home.

  • Because you saw wrinkles
  • The signs of your age
  • Proof of your wisdom
  • A display of how you have achieved a certain stature in life

Does that make you happy? Or feel confident about yourself?

Absolutely not! You want them gone. You support the ‘everyone is beautiful’ campaigns on social media like Instagram. But you don’t want to be the face of those campaigns.

You want everyone to know you are experienced and learned. But you don’t want your wrinkles to tell that tale.

And it isn’t that you haven’t tried. Oils, creams, lotions, serums, massages, and even dietary supplements. You have tried them all. But those stubborn wrinkles always find a way back to your face.

How to get rid of wrinkles permanently?

Get Rid of Wrinkles Permanently

The simplest, most effective way – Botox injections.

From spas to medical clinics, and even from people in your circles (albeit in hushed tones) you might have already heard about Botox. Many celebrities have also received the treatment to maintain their picture-perfect looks.

However, most people consider Botox as an unnatural and harmful procedure. Horrid stories of people getting a condition popularly called ‘frozen face’ also keep doing the rounds. And you might have also seen people look worse off after Botox treatment.

But before you put off the thought of getting Botox because of all this, know that if done by experts, Botox has shown visible results. And a vast majority of people claim to be satisfied by the procedure.

  • What about botox injections’ side effects?
  • Does it even work?
  • What if something goes wrong?
  • Will I be able to afford it?
  • How long will it take?
  • How long will it last?

What are Botox Injections?

What are Botox Injections

Botulinum toxin injections (type A) are one of the most popular cosmetic, non-surgical treatments. Botox is the brand name of the first botulinum toxin and thus has become synonymous with the procedure itself. However, today other brands like Dysport and Xeomin are also available.
While the primary use of Botox injections is in reducing facial wrinkles, some other use cases include:

  • Severe sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms caused by Cervical dystonia
  • Uncontrolled blinking (blepharospasm)
  • Eyes pointing in different directions (strabismus)
  • Overactive bladder
  • Chronic migraine

The biggest Botox myth – Busted!

The worst myth surrounding Botox treatment is that the procedure involves injecting people with botulism. Botulism is the bacterial form of food poisoning. And in expert administered Botox treatment that is no space for botulism. The procedure is absolutely safe.

How does Botox work?

How does Botox Work

If you are wondering how botox gets rid of wrinkles, here is what happens when you get the injection. Botox stops the muscles from getting the signals from nerves. This stops the injected muscles from contracting and thus the wrinkles soften and relax.

Whether you have wrinkles on your forehead, crow’s feet (lines near your eyes), or frown lines, Botox can help get rid of that. However, wrinkles caused by sun damage or gravity cannot be cured using this procedure. These types of wrinkles are called static wrinkles, and Botox is an ideal treatment for dynamic wrinkles, which are caused by other reasons.

Dermal fillers are more suitable for getting rid of static wrinkles.

The Botox procedure – How it is done, what to take care of, and more

Now that you know how Botox works when injected into your skin, it might feel that it is a lengthy procedure. But that’s not true at all. Botox treatment takes only a couple of minutes. No anaesthesia is needed like dental treatments.

When you sit in one of our chairs for the treatment, we use small needles to inject Botox into the specific muscles. The process isn’t very painful either and causes only minor discomfort.

The effect of the treatment is fully seen within 7 to 14 days and lasts for 3 to 4 months. Though the wrinkles that appear after the treatment are less severe than the ones you originally had.

If you see the effects wearing down, you can schedule another appointment with us for the next session.

Here are a few tips to make sure the results show up soon and last long –

  • Avoid alcohol at least a week before treatment.
  • Avoid aspirin or other anti-inflammatory medicines at least 2 weeks before treatment.
  • Avoid rubbing the injection site for 24 hours after the injection as this may spread the Botox to other places.
  • Sit upright for at least 4 hours after the treatment.

Botox is a non-invasive and simple procedure that yields unparalleled results and no harmful side effects (if done by experts, like those at Natural Smiles).

Some short-term, non-threatening side effects could include:

  • Bruising
  • Headache (Goes away within 24-48 hours)
  • Drooping eyelids (Happens to a small percentage of people, and goes away within 3 weeks)
  • Eye dryness
  • Drooling/crooked smile
  • Numbness
  • Flu-like symptoms

While Botox is a safe procedure for everyone, some people shouldn’t get the treatment. It includes pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, people with neurological conditions, and those allergic to cow’s milk protein.

People suffering from chronic conditions like amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s disease), myasthenia gravis and Lambert-Eaton syndrome should also avoid getting Botox.
