botox – how is it made

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic from Stevenage in Hertfordshire shares in his latest blog how botox is made.

 

Botox® is made from botulinum toxin type A, which comes from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium.

Botox® is produced from a purified protein of the Type A toxin, one of seven toxins produced by different strains of the bacterium.

Botox® can be used in small doses to treat health problems, including

  • Severe underarm sweating
  • Cervical dystonia – a neurological disorder that causes severe neck and shoulder muscle contractions
  • Blepharospasm – uncontrollable blinking
  • Strabismus – misaligned eyes

botox – when will I see the results

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic from Stevenage in Hertfordshire shares in his latest blog – when will you see the results from the botox treatment

 

 

Immediately after your botox treatment you may feel that your head is slightly heavy and we recommend to drink plenty of water after the treatment.

 

During the next 3 to 4 days you should feel your skin tightening. In general the effects of the botox should be apparent between 5-14 days. In some patients it can be quicker and in some it does take the whole 14 days to see the full results. That is why we don’t book any top ups with botox until at least 2 weeks after the initial treatment.

 

The reason it takes time for the botox to work we must first understand the mechanisms of its action. Once the botox is injected into the muscle, it take s a while for it to bind to the receptors that cause the chemical release for the muscle to contract. The speed of this process is different in different people.

 

We always review all our patients after 2 weeks to see if you require any top ups and also to find out how long it took for you to see the results.

botox – how effective is it

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic from Stevenage in Hertfordshire shares in his latest blog how effective his botox.

 

Botox® injections over the years has been shown to be very effective for the treatment of motion lines. The results are not permanent and should last anything between 3 and 6 months. To get the best results we would advise for regular treatments throughout the year. There are some studies that show the longer you have the botox treatment for , the fewer injections you will need int eh future.

However with very deep wrinkles or static lines, botox will not eliminate these lines. There maybe a slight reduction in the appearance of these lines, but you amy need to seek alternative procedures – such as dermal fillers.

Botox® has also been shown to very effective at treating underarm sweating and we have had many cases to demonstrate this.

There are a minority of patients that may develop or have high levels of immunity to the botox and therefore the effectiveness of the treatment wont be as good as other patients.

botox – who do i choose?

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic from Stevenage in Hertfordshire shares in his latest blog what to consider when choosing someone for your botox treatment.

 

  1. Check that they are suitably qualified to undertake the botox procedure. Only certain medically qualified  professionals such as dentists, doctors, medical nurses and hygienists are properly insured and trained to do this.
  2. Make sure you are provided with a detailed consultation and assessment. You should be given plenty of time to have all your questions and concerns answered. You should never feel pressurised to have the treatment then if you are unsure about anything.
  3. Be informed: your consultation should include the following: the risk, benefits, and alternative treatments. An inform consent document must be signed by the patient.
  4. You should have pictures taken before the procedure so both the botox provider and yourself can see the changes after the treatment.
  5. Choose the appropriate setting for treatment: Botox® injections are medical procedures and should be performed in the presence of trained medical personnel and proper equipment to deal with potential complications. All injection should be performed using sterile techniques and proper disposal of needles and syringes is necessary.

botox – migraines

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic from Stevenage, Hertfordshire in his latest blog talks about how botox can be used to control migraines.

Botox®, the anti-wrinkle treatment is recommended for the treatment of chronic migraine on the health service .

The medicines regulator MHRA says there’s evidence Botox® can be effective at preventing headaches in adults with chronic migraines.

Botox® may offer a safe and effective preventative treatment option to help people with chronic migraine manage their migraine and improve their quality of life.

Research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2012 found Botox® injections provide modest benefit for migraines and headaches.

Migraine affects an estimated six million people in Britain.

The drug works by paralysing tiny muscles in the head and neck when injected under the skin. The effect is to smooth out frown lines and wrinkles but has also been shown to ease the pain of chronic migraine sufferers.

Botox® – post operative advice

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire explains in his latest blog how CODE recommend as post operative advice after your botox treatment.

 

You should frown repeatedly for about one hour immediately following the treatment. This will help the treatment to be more effective by increasing the uptake by the targeted muscle groups.

 

Do not rub the treated area, stay upright for at least 4 hours and try to avoid sleeping on your face for the first night.

 

You can gently apply light makeup after the treatment but use a light dabbing motion instead of a rubbing or spreading motion for the first day.

 

Do not have any facial treatments for 7 days after treatment as they may cause ‘tracking’ of the Botox®to neighbouring areas.

 

Side effects of this treatment are rare. Occasionally, temporary drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow may occur, which usually lasts for a few weeks and if longer, will resolve when the effects of the toxin wear off.

Botox® – who cant have it

Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic from Stevenage in Hertfordshire talks about when we would not carry out botox treatments.

 

We know the safety of botox, however there is nothing wrong with being cautious and in certain situations and we would advise not to have the botox procedure.

 

We would not carry out botox in anyone under the age of 18. It is very rare that you would need the treatment at this stage anyway. However we want to make sure all the muscles and facial structures have stopped maturing so we can work on stable base.

 

If you are pregnant or breast feeding then we would not carry out botox injections on you. In theory there is a small chance that the botox may enter your bloodstream and effect other parts of your body.

 

If you are allergic to eggs, you would not be able to have botox. There is a similar protein in eggs that occurs in the botox.

 

If you suffer from any neurological disorders, like multiple sclerosis then you woudl not be able to undertake botox procedures. As botox inhibits the nerve supply to the muscle, we would not want to interfere with this process in neurological disorders.

 

Don’t despair, you may fall into one of these groups, and unfortunately not be able to have botox, but there are alternatives available. We can offer skin regeneration procedures, such as dermaroller which can improve the appearance of fine lines. Yu can also consider skin transformational products such as the Obagi skin range to improve your skins complexion and the appearance of your fine lines.
