Anti Aging Cosmetology Laser
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.
For this procedure, anesthesia is applied in a cream form on the target areas of the skin. You will need to apply the cream and wait 15 minutes for it to take effect. 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.
Wrinkles on the face are a function of the underlying mimetic muscles pulling down on your skin. With the 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 botulinum toxin. 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 is not relevant to the effectiveness of this treatment.
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 have 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.
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.
It is advisable to stop any blood thinners like aspirin prior to the treatment, because blood thinners lead to higher chances of temporary bruising.
If you stop smoking one week before the treatment, it will also reduce your chances of bruising from the injections.
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.
