Botox: The other side of the treatment, you might not be aware of!

Having those frown lines or crow’s feet, and looking for some easy solution to fight aging signs? Certainly, botox treatment can help you.

“After my second child, I started having those wrinkles, which were highly irritating for me. To get rid of these, my friend suggested me to go for botox. It worked for me and now I am happy with my new skin”

Depending on the severity of the condition and your health history, you can go for this medical procedure to rejuvenate your skin. But before you jump into the decision, you need to understand that just like any other prescription, there are several side effects which accompany this solution.

What is Botox?

Basically, it is the procedure of injecting a toxin, which works on problems such as wrinkles, sagging skin, blemishes, etc. The toxin used is “botulinum”, which is inserted into the skin to combat aging signs and works by relaxing the muscles on the face. This toxin gets in the way of the signal transmission process, i.e. between the nerves and the facial muscles. And when these muscles do not work, the signs of aging like wrinkles which are brought about by aging, reduce significantly. As far as the results are concerned, these may last for three months up to half a year. Hence, you need to get injected repeated times to maintain the skin rejuvenation process.

What are the side effects of Botox?

The side effects caused by Botox treatment can begin from the moment of injection and can last up to weeks after the appointment. Have a look:

  • A temporary facial droop (if the toxin used gets involved much more than it was intended)
  • Headaches
  • Pain and bruising after the injection
  • Flu or some similar illness
  • Feeling of nausea

While the above mentioned are some of the common side effects, there are few on the rarer side too. And the bad news is that these rarer are more severe. These side effects include paralysis of the body. It happens when the injection used is not a FDA approved Botox.

The long list of side effects is probably the biggest reason why the medical professionals ask the patients to keep an eye out for any different signs. Basically, there goal is to begin with the treatment as soon as a problem becomes noticeable. In most cases, it is the early intervention which can restrict the severity of the symptoms and side effects.

What you can do to prevent the side effects?

In order to keep yourself safe from the side effects, share with your doctor about the medical conditions you having. Yes, it is highly important to give your physician the accurate information. For example, if you have breathing problems or suffering from some nerve conditions, the doctor needs to go over the medical history and then only he can decide whether or not you are ready for this course of treatment. In case, it is not, you might have to look into other options for similar kind of results.

While some people believe Botox to be a short cut to look young, it is essential for them to understand the treatment completely. It usually provides you with quicker results, but still before you undergo the treatment, you must understand the side effects to avoid any surprises.
