AFTER EFFECTS OF BOTOX
Botox is used for several purposes like severe underarm sweating, muscle spasm control, and cosmetic improvement. Botox is used for the temporary smoothing of glabellar lines (also called frown lines). These are the lines between your eyebrows which can make you look tired, angry or unhappy.
How Does Botox Work?
The Botulinum toxin has proven to be a successful and important therapeutic protein. Botulinum toxin can be injected into people in minimal doses. Botox works by blocking the signals from the nerve cells therefore preventing the signals from reaching the muscles. Botulinum toxin causes a decline in abnormal muscle contraction, allowing the muscles to become less stiff.
Botox After Effects
Injections with botulinum toxin are well tolerated, and there are few temporary side effects. In rare cases, an individual may have a genetic predisposition which results in a mild, temporary and unusual response to the drug.
Possible after effects include pain at the injection site, infection, inflammation, redness, swelling, bleeding and bruising. Also, fatigue, dry mouth, headache and neck pain and other such symptoms have been reported by a few patients.
Swelling and redness at the injection site are the common side-effects after a Botox treatment. After effects, such as redness and swelling are usually only temporary with skin returning to normal after four to seven days.
Many people experience bruising after the Botox treatment. This is because as your facial muscles are injected, it is a possibility that a blood vessel may be punctured. This can cause minor bleeding in the skin. A few days after receiving the treatment, a small number of individuals develop bruising at the injection site; as it takes some time for the blood to move to the skin surface and manifest as a bruise.
It is likely for the Botox to spread a little beyond the intended site and affect surrounding tissue. For example, if you receive injections into the forehead close to your upper eyelids or eyebrows, they could be affected and cause temporary drooping.
UK Scientists have designed and developed a perfect product to treat the after-effects of Botox. This product is known as Proboxin. Proboxin is the world's first aftercare cream for Botox patients. It is highly effective against the swelling and redness after botox patients can experience following botox procedures. Proboxin contains arnica, green tea, passion fruit, retinol and SPF 25 which offers an all-round relief and recovery from the usual side-effects after the Botox treatment.
