Botox treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world.
Botox has very few risks and side effects. It adheres to the highest standards of clinical quality. Since Botox treatment is perfected by decades of research and experiments, it is totally safe for all.
Botox treatment is done to treat wrinkles, fine lines, crow feet, and facelifts. The positive effect of the injection lasts for 6 months to 1 year. It has no side effects and is called a lunch-time procedure because of the minimum downtime.
Botox is simply a protein that researchers found useful in medical and cosmetic uses.
When we talk about Botox treatment for the skin, we should know that it is injected into the muscles. This is why it is called an injectable medicine. Botox injections prevent the release of acetylcholine, which stops muscle cells from contracting. The injected fluid reduces abnormal muscle contraction, allowing the muscles to become less stiff and contract, which would otherwise cause wrinkles.
Before the procedure
a) Do not drink alcohol for two days before the treatment to prevent bruising in the injected area.
b) Be patient. It takes three days or more to see an effect.
c) Do not do Botox treatment if you are pregnant or a breastfeeding mom. You can always do the procedure later.
During Botox treatment
a) Your treatment provider will study the wrinkles and muscle structure on your face.
b) S/he will determine the right spots to inject the fluid so that you don’t witness any asymmetry after Botox starts to work.
After the procedure
a) Do not exercise for a day.
b) The place where your doctor injects the Botox will have mosquito bite-like spots for some time. Do not touch that area.
c) You can wear makeup over the injected area. Just be sure not to rub hard over the spots. Be gentle when you put makeup or take it off.
d) Do not lay down for the next 4 hours.
e) Hydrate yourself enough after the procedure.
When will botox treatment for wrinkle removal show results?
In general, you can see the effects of Botox as early as 3 to 4 days after injection. Most will see results within 10 to 14 days. In 14 days, you will witness optimum results.
Keep in mind that after your first treatment, you may feel a slight ‘tight’ sensation or ‘heaviness’, which will disappear in 1-2 weeks.

Does Botox have any side effects? What are the possible complications of Botox treatment for wrinkle removal?
According to healthline.com, “Botox was originally FDA approved in 1989 for the treatment of blepharospasm and other eye-muscle problems. In 2002, the FDA approved the use of Botox for cosmetic treatment for moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. It was approved by the FDA for treatment of wrinkles around the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) in 2013.”
According to a study, Botox is “a simple, safe, and effective treatment for the reduction of forehead wrinkles.”
Nevertheless, you should inform your treatment provider of any medical condition you have. Also, inform them if you are currently taking any medicine. This is especially true if you are on blood-thinning medicine like aspirin. People who take aspirin tend to witness bruising in the injected areas.
