Botox Treatments

Botox treatments are becoming more and more popular as they can be used in a number of different ways to treat a number of different conditions. Due to the number of different types of Botox treatments, there are a large number of people who look to use Botox injections in an attempt to help improve their problem.

There are some people who have reservations about Botox treatments as they think that Botox injections are only used for superficial reasons. While Botox treatments are offered to customers to for cosmetic reasons, Botox can also be used to help treat certain medical conditions.

Botox injections are now used in treatments such as Botox for sweating, Botox for headaches and migraines and a number of other different treatments. This puts to bed the notion that Botox treatments are purely superficial as they fit a need to help improve medical issues that may not have been treatable without this kind of treatment.

Botox Treatment Clinics

There are a number of Botox treatment clinics that offer a number of different kinds of Botox treatments. However, it is important that people only receive this treatment from a fully licensed and certified clinic. These specialised botox clinics have specially trained professionals that have experience in Botox treatment so you can be assured that only the best and safest possible treatment is provided. The clinics that offer reduced prices, but have not been medically certified, will not be able to guarantee effective treatment and may even result in some serious side effects after the treatment has been given.

There have been reports of people having negative experiences with Botox treatment as a result of receiving treatment from an un-certified clinic. These clinics have not registered with the relevant authorities, the General Medical Council (GMC), so their treatment has not been tested to ensure the success of the treatment, as well as the patient’s safety. This makes it important that patients conduct suitable research and checks on any clinics they are thinking about using for Botox treatment before going ahead with it.

An example of a clinic that has been fully certified and can be trusted to deliver a safe and effective Botox treatment is Laserase Wales, who are a clinic that is based in Cardiff.

How Botox Injections Work

Botox injections inject botulinum toxin into the skin of the patient that has a specific effect when nerves innovate and stimulate muscles. When a nerve is fired, it releases a neurotransmitter that then binds with the receptor of the muscle and this causes the muscle to contract. So the botulinum toxin gets absorbed and cleaves off the receptors in the muscle and this prevents the nerve from stimulating the muscle.

Botox treatment tends to be used for dynamic lines, which are the lines that are not fixed like the frown lines and the crow’s feet around the eyes. So to help with this botox injections are used in certain muscle groups that tend to relax those muscles. So when the muscles are relaxed, the dynamic lines are not as noticeable. This is especially effective with the dynamic lines that you typically see on your forehead. If a line is completely static, so if the line is always there irrelevant on the facial expression, the botox injections will not have an effect on this.

Botox Treatment Side Effects

There are some people that are concerned about receiving Botox treatment as they are worried about possible side effects. There are certain side effects that could come with Botox treatment and the most common risk that is associated with Botox is bruising of the area that has been treated. If bruising does occur after the Botox treatment, then patients should expect to see it fade after a couple of days. Some patients can also experience headaches after receiving the treatment that could last for 24 to 48 hours after the injections. The other risks that could come with Botox treatment include eyelid drooping, itching, redness, nausea, and sweating.

But these side effects are not that common and most people are able to resume normal activity on the same day and leave delighted with the results that the Botox treatment provides.
