Botox injection is the most popular cosmetic procedure in the industry today. This minimally-invasive procedure keeps your skin looking healthy, smooth and with fewer wrinkles. How it works is, the Botox is injected into various areas of the face, targeting muscles that actually cause wrinkles. When injected, the Botox temporarily blocks impulses from the nerve to the facial muscles and keeps these areas from contracting. The results of the treatments can last anywhere from four to six months, results may vary. Most patients come in for follow up treatments and continue presenting a more youthful appearance.Learn more about them at botox idaho falls.
Botox is not only used to keeping wrinkles from forming, it also offers other forms of treatment. This includes treatment for sweaty palms and underarms, and treatment for migraine headaches. The small amounts used for cosmetic purposes result in few side effects. Therefore, there are few restrictions regarding BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. Women who are pregnant and persons who have a neurological disease, however, should not be treated. BOTOX® Cosmetic does not directly affect sensory facial nerves so there should be no numbness in the injected area. “Untreated” muscles are unaffected so facial expressions are not dramatically altered.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are used to improve wrinkles between the eyebrows, on the forehead and around the eyes. On occasion, other areas may also be treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic. BOTOX® is supplied in a single use vial. Because the product and diluent do not contain a preservative, once opened and reconstituted, store in a refrigerator and use within four hours. Discard any remaining solution. Do not freeze reconstituted BOTOX®. BOTOX® is to be reconstituted with sterile, non-preserved saline prior to intramuscular injection.
An injection of BOTOX® is prepared by drawing into an appropriately sized sterile syringe an amount of the properly reconstituted toxin (see Dilution Table) slightly greater than the intended dose. Air bubbles in the syringe barrel are expelled and the syringe is attached to an appropriate injection needle. Patency of the needle should be confirmed. A new, sterile, needle and syringe should be used to enter the vial on each occasion for removal of BOTOX®.
