In recent years, such a cosmetic procedure as Botox injections has become widespread. Women of all countries strive to be confident and at the same time look young and well-groomed. They want to have a smooth face and a swan-like neck without age-related wrinkles for a long period of time. In this article, we will tell you all about this procedure.


The main ability of Botox is to reduce facial wrinkles. In addition, Botox injections are used to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, and a lazy eye. The good news for many people with persistent headaches is that botox can also help manage chronic migraines.

To temporarily prevent muscle movement, Botox injections use a toxin known as botulinum toxin A. This toxin is produced by the microbe “botulism”, a type of food poisoning.

The first drug in history to contain botulinum toxin was botox. In modern realities, drugs contain other products, such as Abobotulinumtoxin (Dysport), Rimabotulinumtoxin (Myobloc), and Incobotulinumtoxin (Xeomin). These products cannot be used interchangeably due to their composition.


Botox injections stop certain chemical signals from the nerves, mostly signals that cause the muscles to contract. Botulinum therapy is suitable for different parts of the face. It is often used to correct the forehead, the bridge of the nose, the area around the eyes and chin.

What else can Botox do besides smooth out wrinkles?

1. Cervical dystonia. This disease is a form of focal dystonia of a person, characterized by involuntary contractions of the neck muscles, leading to disability, an incorrect position of the head.

2. Muscle contractures. Cerebral palsy is an example of similar neurological diseases that cause your limbs to stretch out toward the center. Botox helps to relax the contracted muscles.

3. Hyperhidrosis. Constant wet T-shirts, socks, and face from sweat, even though you did not even get out of bed and the thermometer is below zero? Botox injections in the palms, armpits, and feet may help.

4. Chronic migraine. Do you have a constant headache? Don’t worry, Botox can help you solve this problem!

5. Bladder dysfunction. If you suffer from bladder dysfunction caused by hyperactivity of this organ, then Botox injections can also help you.

6. The eye twitches. Botox injections can help ease the contraction or twitching of the muscles around the eyes.


Of course, there is a risk in everything and Botox is no exception. Despite this, if this procedure is carried out by a highly qualified specialist, the risks are minimized.

Let’s look at the possible side effects:

1. Pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site

2. Headache or flu-like symptoms

3. Drooping eyelid or slanting eyebrows

4. Crooked smile or drooling

5. Dry eyes or excessive watery eyes

Unfortunately, it happens that the toxin begins to spread throughout the body. You should contact your doctor immediately if you notice side effects such as:

1. Muscle weakness

2. Vision problems

3. Problems with speech or swallowing

4. Breathing problems

5. Loss of bladder control

It is not recommended to give botox injections to pregnant women, during breastfeeding and people who are allergic to cow’s milk protein.


In the hands of inexperienced doctors, the injection can lead to terrible consequences. Therefore, it is necessary to choose a highly qualified specialist with work experience. Your doctor will answer any questions you may have and ask about your expectations and desired outcome. He or she will discuss your options, likely outcomes, and any risks or possible complications before recommending a course of treatment. In addition, your doctor will evaluate your overall health and help you determine whether the procedure is best suited to your needs and health.


Before the procedure, you should discuss with your doctor the medications that you usually take. If you are taking blood thinners, you may need to stop taking them a few days before the injection to reduce the risk of bleeding or bruising. You should also tell your doctor if you have had Botox injections in the last four months.


In most cases, the procedure does not cause discomfort. But you may want to get your skin numb beforehand, especially if your palms or soles are being treated for excessive sweating. Then the doctor will select the most suitable type of anesthesia for you.


During the procedure, the doctor will inject a small amount of botulinum toxin into the skin or muscles with a thin needle. The number of injections required depends on your case.


Do not rub or massage the treated areas for 24 hours! This can help prevent the toxin from spreading to another area. Immediately after the injections, you can safely go about your normal business.


The result can be seen in 1-3 days. But to maintain its effect, constant injections will be required. In general, the frequency of repetition of these injections is from three months or more.

To sum up, I would like to say that Botox injections are a serious procedure that has its pros and cons. But it also helps to cope with various diseases. Therefore, before going to this procedure, it is worth weighing all the pros and cons and making a rational decision.
