What is the Importance of Botox Injections?


Botox (Botulinum Toxin) injections improve the appearance caused by wrinkles. Botox injections relax the muscles.

These injections also treat other medical conditions (migraines, hyperhidrosis, overactive bladder, and eye problems). 

Botox treatment should be repeated every three to six months to maintain the results.

Who needs Botox?

Botox cosmetic injections are used to correct the signs of aging. This treatment can reduce the wrinkles and fine lines in several areas of your face, including your:

  • Eyebrows
  • Forehead
  • Nose
  • Eyes (crow’s feet)
  • Lips
  • Chin

Your doctor will ask you to avoid alcohol 24 hours before the procedure as it makes you more prone to redness and bruising. 

During Botox treatment

Your doctor uses a fine or thin needle to inject micro amounts of Botox into the treatment area. Depending on the problem, you may receive several injections in different spots.

  • Botox is an outpatient procedure; hence you can go home the same day.
  • There will be mild discomfort. You may feel a sting sensation. The application of a topical numbing agent will help you with the discomfort.
