How does Botox® treatment work?
Botox® treatment works by blocking the nerve signals to the affected muscles around the injection site. The muscles become more relaxed and their activity is reduced, in turn reducing the effects on the skin, such as lines and wrinkles.
When injected into the problem area, it freezes muscle movement by blocking neurotransmitters for a period of 4-6 months, so the treatment needs to be administered a few times a year to maintain the curative effects. Botox® treatment should always be undertaken by a qualified medical professional as it is very important to get the right amount in the right area to avoid asymmetrical results, muscle drooping, frozen expressions and potentially dangerous consequences. Administered properly there are not many known problems associated with the treatment. If the Botox® treatment in Oakville is stopped the muscles will begin to function normally and the ageing process will resume.
What is Botox® used for?
It can be used on humans for many reasons and is very helpful in the treatment of many medical conditions such as lazy eye, and cervical dystonia. It is also now being used to treat excessive sweating from the hands and underarms. Whilst it has a wide range of uses and new uses are being researched and discovered all the time, the most well known popular cosmetic use is as a safe and effective wrinkle treatment. Over time, the muscles we use on our face to create facial expressions, sun damage and the human ageing process can carve out grooves, lines and wrinkles in the skin which do not disappear when the muscles are relaxed. Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles and skin appears more youthful and less wrinkled.
