Botox Treatment in Delhi
WHAT IS BOTOX®?
Botox® Cosmetic is an injection. It is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between brows and crow’s feet (the lines around sides of your eyes) in adults.
IS BOTOX® SAFE? It is FDA approved. It is a treatment experienced by millions of people and number 1 selling product of its kind in the world.
WHERE DOES BOTOX® COME FROM?
It is derived from sources that exist in nature. It contains tiny amounts of highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.
HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?
Whenever we make any facial expressions like squint, frown etc. the muscles repeatedly contract and tighten causing wrinkles. Botox® Cosmetic works beneath the skin surface and targets the underlying muscle activity.
Our nerves release a neurotransmitter chemical, acetylcholine which binds to receptors within muscle to make it contract. Wrinkle relaxers like Botox® work by binding to the acetylcholine receptors and blocking the signal from nerve to the muscles. After a muscle has been injected, the nerves still send the signal to the muscle to contract, and the acetylcholine is still released, but is unable to bind to the muscle resulting in reduction of the muscle activity and temporarily preventing contraction of muscles that cause lines.
WHEN WILL YOU SEE THE RESULTS?
The binding process typically begins within 48 hrs from the time it is injected into the muscle and results typically become noticeable within 7-10 days.
While it is most effective for dynamic wrinkles (wrinkles that appear while giving expressions that is when the muscle contracts), it can also help soften the wrinkles that are present even without muscle contraction.
HOW LONG DOES BOTOX LAST?
The effect of the treatment can last anywhere from 3-6 months.
