What is Botox?
Botox is the trade name for a substance injected into the skin which is known to
to reduce muscle movement.
This helps to
- Smooth out existing wrinkles
- Prevent further wrinkles
Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the
bacterium Clostridium botulinum.
It is used:
- Medically, to treat certain muscular conditions
- Cosmetically, remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles.
This method has been used for many years by celebrities and public persons in order to maintain a smooth and young skin aspect. More and more women are thinking of using it.
Botox is used on humans in extreme small concentrations.
Its action is to prevent signals from the nerve cells to reach the muscles and so the muscles have no nervous command.
In the cosmetic industry, Botox is used as a treatment against facial wrinkles and old age skin damage.
Also, it has been used to treat a variety of medical conditions such as:
- Eye squints
- Excessive sweating
- Leaky bladders
The method of administrating Botox is a simple chemical process:
We dilute the powder in saline and inject it directly into neuromuscular tissue.
The effect of the Botulinum toxin can be seen after 24 hours.
Generally, most people tolerate the Botulinum toxin.
There are rare side effects such as:
- Mild pain
- Mild nausea
- Temporary upper lid drooping
- Weakness of the lower eyelid
This toxin has contraindicated for:
- Pregnant women
- Lactating women
- Allergic reactions
Needles used for injecting Botox are very small, thus the pain is usually minimal.
The injecting area can be soothed with a topical anaesthesia cream or a cold pack applied for 10 to 20 minutes before the injection.
A typical Botox treatment should last for up to 3 to 4 months.
When you decide to follow a Botox treatment, choose a
Specialized clinic with extensive experience
bumpy or blistered skin.
However, there is a real alternative.
Polypeptide cream e.g. Wrinklex® cream by Pharmaclinix® is a Facial relaxing cream, which smoothens the wrinkles with no pain.
The high strength Actives work similarly to the injection, as they cut out the signal to the brain which triggers contraction of the muscle.
Wrinklex® by Pharmaclinix® is particularly effective in Asian & African skins, as it is designed to be absorbed through the thicker skins.
However, the creams do take longer to work & don’t show instant results like the injections.
Wrinklex® cream is a complex of
- Muscle relaxant peptides
- Dermal regenerators
- Collagen inducers
- Vitamins & anti-oxidants
- Skin conditioners
Advantages of Wrinklex® Anti Ageing cream:
- Reduces fine wrinkles
- Slows down the wrinkling process
- Can be used indefinitely
- Works gradually to give a more natural look
- Pain free
- Permanent results
