To start with, we would like to inform you that botox, although used commonly, is actually a registered, trademarked brand name of Allergan pharmaceuticals. It is the name of their formulation of the botulinum protein (toxin). We mainly describe the cosmetic uses of botulinum on this page.

There are other medical indications as well which you can browse through in our indications section, but those are related to other fields of medicine and not dermatology (except masseter jawline shaping and hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, which are also a dermatological indications).

 

In dermatology, botulinum is used as a powerful tool in anti aging and can show remarkable reversal of moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Anti aging: the use of botulinum to reverse wrinkles and fine lines provides highly satisfactory results. It is used to target facial wrinkles, namely crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead lines. Apart from this particular cosmetic use, it is also used in the masseter muscles (jaw) to help with slimming the jawline and giving a more feminine appearance.
  • Medical indications: The medical indications of botulinum include usage in cases of chronic migraine, adult spasticity (which is muscle stiffness in arms and legs), pediatric spasticity, cervical dystonia (abnormal neck position), overactive bladder, severe primary hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating, also a dermatological indication) and blepharospasm (eyelid spasm).

 

You should not go ahead with the botox treatment in case you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have had a past allergic reaction to the molecule or suffer from neurological diseases. All these factors are checked by our specialists before recommending the treatment for you.

 

Hence, if you have started showing signs of facial wrinkles, are in Mumbai and want to reverse fine lines, this page is for you (provided you don’t have any of the contraindications mentioned above).

How botulinum works

Wrinkles on the face are a function of the underlying mimetic muscles pulling down on you skin. With aging and repetitive action of the muscles, the wrinkles start appearing more pronounced. Such wrinkles are usually referred to as dynamic wrinkles.

 

The kind of botulinum used in the anti aging treatment is botulinumtoxinA. The molecule is naturally produced by a kind of bacteria, clostridium botulinum. In a pharmaceutical environment, the specific components required are extracted and refined to make sure that the injectable molecule has very controlled and specific actions.

 

What an injection of the molecule does is that it blocks the transmission of signals from the nerve ends to the underlying muscle. This makes the muscles relax and therefore the overlying wrinkles reduce in appearance.

It works remarkably well even on moderate to severe wrinkles. You can see some images of before and after results in the relevant section of this page. It is also used across age groups and your gender or skin tone are not relevant to the effectiveness of this treatment.

Procedure

Like all our treatments, your botulinum treatment starts with meeting one of the top skin specialists in the city. The dermatologist will first understand your expectations and target areas. They will then share the exact details of the treatment with you after chalking out your plan.

 

They will share with you, the exact botulinum product they plan to use for you and why. They will provide you with an estimate of how effective the treatment will be for you. They will do this after chalking out a plan for your face as to how many units of the product they will inject and in which areas.

 

 

  • Topical (cream) anesthesia will be applied on the target areas. This is done to numb the area so that you do not even feel mild discomfort from the injection.

 

  • A very thin gauge needle is used for the procedure. The product is diluted in the required proportion and injected into the target areas. The injection step hardly takes 15-20 minutes.

 

  • After this, you are good to go and will see the results starting 48 hours after the treatment which are expected to improve further over the next 7-14 days. The results last for 4-6 months.

 

After-care:

  • After the procedure, do not rub the area for the next 12-24 hours so as not to spread the product.
  • You will be asked NOT to lie down for the next 3-4 hours (again so that product stays in the target area).
  • You may be asked to NOT undertake vigorous exercise for the next 24 hours.

Targeted areas

Moderate to severe wrinkles in the face are usually targeted in this treatment. The common areas are:

  • Crows feet: these are the lines that appear at the edge of the eyes.
  • Frown lines: These are lines that appear due to repeated expression
  • Forehead lines: Again arising due to repeated frowning etc. and become prominent with age
  • Masseters: For jawline slimming
  • Hands: The treatment is also used for wrinkles on the hands by some practitioners.

Cost in Mumbai

The cost of Botox is usually measured in the number of units required. This is because the manufacturers price it similarly. The price varies across practitioners in Mumbai. The prices however, are standardized with the dermatologists partnered by SkinGenious.

Risks and side effects

Botox and dysport have been used for many years with very successful results. In the hands of an expert aesthetic dermatologist, the incidence of side effects is very low. However you must be aware of the same before you choose to go ahead.

Botulinum is FDA approved. The risk profile mainly comes into play when the treatment in not taken from a trained aesthetic dermatologist, which is a phenomenon in countries where the treatment is not very highly regulated, like even in the United states, where non-medical practitioners also perform the treatment.

In Mumbai, only medical practitioners are allowed to perform the treatment which helps great deal in lowering the risk profile. That said, you are required to sign a consent form given the unforeseen effects that the molecule can have even in the hands of a trained practitioner. We’ve already shared that pregnant/breastfeeding women and persons with neurological diseases are not considered ideal candidates.

 

The possible risks and side effects include:

  • Bruising at the injection sites is a possible side effect and resolves itself over 2-3 days in the minimal chances that it occurs, given the thin needle gauge
  • Eyelid drooping: This happens rarely. In most instances where it does occur, it happens when after care is not taken properly and the product moves to un-intended areas.
  • Headaches: again rare, and usually resolve in 24 to 48 hours when they do occur
  • Mild pain or swelling around the injection site
  • Crooked smile, drooling, eye dryness or severe tearing are possible, again when the product moves to unintended areas.
  • Numbness or weakness in nearby muscles
  • Upset stomach is possible

However, we would like to re-iterate that the chances of these risks are minimal in the hands of a trained practitioner. Also, the effects of the treatments last only 4-6 months, so none of this is permanent.

Benefits over other methods

The results from the Botox treatment provided by us could only be compared to plastic surgery in terms of the change delivered. The benefits of these methods over plastic surgery include:

  • There is no surgery and no general anesthesia
  • There is absolutely no down-time involved
  • The results start appearing within 48 hours and improve over 2 weeks
  • Costs much lesser than surgery

What to expect

If our skin specialist went ahead for the treatment, it does mean that you were an ideal candidate and they had noticed dynamic wrinkles where they knew they could deliver significant results.

 

After the treatment you can expect to start seeing a significant reduction in wrinkles starting 48 hours post procedure. Further improvement is expected over the next 14 days.

The delivered change will last for 4-6 months. You can choose to repeat it or not. Most of clients do repeat considering the results are so stark.

We’ve summarized this along with after care in the table below:

Concern Answer
Procedure time 30 minutes
Down time NIL
Results show after 48 hours
Results last for 4-6 months
After care – Do not rub the area for next 24 hours
– Do not lie down for 3-4 hours
– No vigorous exercise on the day of treatment

Preparing for treatment

To prepare for your botox treatment in Mumbai, it is advisable to take the following steps:

  • If you do not smoke, it means your body has much better chances of generating more connective tissue and bruising lesser as well.
  • Avoiding blood thinners like aspirin will help further reduce the minimal chances of bruising or redness.
  • Do not perform this treatment in pregnancy or during breastfeeding.
  • Remove all make-up etc. from the face before your consultation so the exact level of change required is visible to the specialist.
