Botulinum Toxin Injection
Botulinum toxin A injection (BTA injection), is a medical procedure that involves injecting a purified form of botulinum toxin into specific muscles to temporarily relax them.
What is BTA
Botulinum toxin A is a purified form of neurotoxic protein produced by bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
How does it work
BTA injection works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, resulting in a smoother and more youthful-looking appearance.
Botox can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles on the face, such as crow’s feet around the eyes, forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
It can help improve the appearance of sagging brows, elevate the corners of the mouth, and soften the jawline.
Botox can be used strategically to lift and shape the nose without the need for surgery. It can create the appearance of a higher nasal bridge or address concerns such as drooping nasal tip.
Botox injections can be used to treat hyperhidrosis, a condition characterized by excessive sweating. It helps reduce sweat production in the treated area, such as the armpits, hands, or feet.
Botox injections can be used to relax the muscles in the shoulder and arm area, resulting in a softer and more feminine appearance. By selectively weakening certain muscle groups, Botox can help achieve a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing shoulder and arm shape.
Botox can be injected into specific calf muscles to reduce their size and create a more streamlined and toned appearance. By relaxing the targeted muscles, Botox can help slim down the calves and create a more proportionate lower leg contour.
Botox works by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscles, leading to muscle relaxation. This can be beneficial for conditions such as muscle spasms, and certain types of headaches.
1-2 sessions are typically required for optimal results. Initial results can be noticeable within 5-7 days after the treatment, with further improvement seen over the following 3-4 weeks. The effects of Botox injections generally last for about 4-6 months.
