Everything You Need To Know About: Botox
Botox is among one of the most special techniques of people looking for a younger and healthier appearance. One of the aspects of aging that most bothers people is the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and the loss of the skin’s natural volume. Thus, one of the treatments that have a direct action on these characteristics is Botox.
What Is Botox?
Botox such as v shaped Botox (โบ ท็ อก หน้า เรียว which is the term in Thai) is the application of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that acts as an obstacle between the stimuli of neurons and the muscles of the face, contributing to a paralysis of the muscles. It promotes muscle relaxation, leaving the patient’s face looking light and smooth.
How Is The Procedure Performed?
The product is applied through a small needle, in low amounts and very precisely, on the desired area of the patient. Before application, it is necessary to use an anesthetic cream on the site that will receive the treatment to avoid discomfort and pain during application. Botulinum toxin works by relaxing the muscles and, because of this, it can be used for other medical functions, in addition to aesthetics.
What Are The Indications For Using Botox?
- forehead wrinkles
- Crease in the glabella (space between the eyebrows)
- crow’s feet (wrinkles that form in the eye area)
- Bruxism and gummy smile
From What Age Can The Procedure Be Performed?
It can be applied preventively in people between 25 and 30 years old and in those who already have wrinkles, albeit with little intensity. Before that, it is not recommended.
How Long Does Botox Last?
Its effects usually last from six to eight months, depending on the state of each person’s skin and organism.
