Botox Treatment

Southampton Botox Treatment (Dysport, Xeomin or Myobloc)

Do you want to restore your youthful skin without undergoing aggressive surgical procedures? If so, Botox might be what you are looking for.

Botox can significantly reduce or even remove wrinkles, even after the first treatment.

Botox has become very popular because it is safer and less expensive than surgery. It can also be done in minutes and normally doesn’t require any downtime.

But what exactly is Botox?

Botulinum is a neurotoxin produced by a bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. This bacteria lives in the natural environment and can be found in forests, soils, lakes, animals, seafood, etc.

Normally, this bacteria produces very small amounts of the toxin Botulinum which are typically harmless to the environment.

However, when a person is exposed to Botulinum in adequate doses, it can disable the ability of one nerve cell in the body to communicate with another nerve cell.

But what’s the link between Botox and treatment of fine lines and wrinkles?

Let’s first understand how fine lines wrinkles are formed:

Wrinkles and fine line are mainly caused by muscle contractions.

For instance, when you are upset or confused, you often draw your eyebrows together and downwards. This causes folding of the skin which results in what is called Frown Lines.

Similarly, when you lift your eyebrows, the skin on your forehead folds, causing Forehead Lines. When this is done repeatedly and over time, it creates permanent horizontal fine lines. As we age, these fine lines will often turn into more pronounced wrinkles.

Although muscle contractions is normally the primary source of fine line and wrinkle formation, other factors contribute as well, such as: stress, lack of sleep, smoking, pollution, and sunlight

Botox is a cosmetic and medical treatment based on Botulinum, used mainly to treat fine lines and wrinkles. Botox is the most frequently used Botulinum treatment, but there are also other similar treatments called Dysport, Xeomin, and Myobloc.

Very small amounts of Botox, Dysport, Xeomin or Myobloc are used to treat these fine lines and wrinkles. When used for this purpose, it is injected into the local muscles that are causing the fine lines and wrinkles to appear.

When Botulinum is injected into a muscle, the messages that a nerve cell wants to send to that muscle, do not reach the muscle. When the muscles don’t receive instructions to act, they are left inactive.

This will prevent the muscles from contracting. As a result, these muscles will no longer continue to create fine lines and wrinkles because the skin around it will stop folding, or fold less.

After these muscles are left inactive and the skin is kept still for some time, the existing wrinkles and fine lines will also be reduced and the skin will become smoother.

The types of fine lines and wrinkles that are normally treated with Botox are Crow’s Feet, Forehead Lines, Bunny Lines and Frown Lines.

The effects of a Botulinum injection does not show immediately, but will normally take shape within 24-72 hours.

You may wonder what is meant by the muscles being ‘temporarily inactive’?

The answer is that the Botulinum that is injected does not remain forever.

The body will absorb and flush the injection away over time, but an injection typically remains effective for 4-6 months. Therefore, if a person wishes to continue to see the effects of Botulinum, he or she should consider treatments 2-3 times a year.

Most people are able to resume with their work or daily activities immediately after the treatment. The treatment normally only involves slight discomfort for most people. Some people may also experience a light swelling, but this normally subsides very quickly.

Botulinum was first used in the 1980 to treat certain eye disorders. It was then approved in 1989 for muscle eye disorders such as squinting, wandering eye, lazy eye and twitching eye. When this treatment was given, doctors noticed that the area around the eye appeared more relaxed and wrinkles were significantly less prominent.

It was then granted approval for cosmetic purposes in 2002 and it has since become a popular anti-wrinkle treatment around the world.

Botox is the most popular cosmetic wrinkle treatment in the UK, with more than one million procedures carried out each year in the UK. Worldwide, it is estimated that more than 20 million treatments are administered each year.

Botulinum injections is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in almost 100 countries, and it has been evaluated in more than 500 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

Botulinum is also used medically to treat more than 20 different muscular conditions, including eye squints, migraines, excess sweating and leaky bladders.

As a final word of caution, you should only have Botox injected by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon with ongoing, special training.
