Botox method — treatment against wrinkles on face and skin

KATHMANDU: Lately, wrinkle has become a problem. Despite old age, people look for a solution to the problem of wrinkles and ways to ensure youthful looks. The number of such aspirants is increasing day by day.

Botox is the world’s standard treatment for wrinkles. Nowadays, the skin gets wrinkled at a young age. Botox is used to stretch the skin or remove wrinkles. Its use is also increasing as it shows results in a short time.

It is used not only cosmetically but also as a treatment. It is also used by psychiatrists in chronic migraines to straighten squinted eyes. It relaxes the muscles if it is lined up.

After Botox the line, the wrinkles disappear. Botox is a toxin released by a bacterium. It is very safe. It has been used in treatment for over forty years.

Which age group uses it most?

The concept of Botox has more to do with prevention than treatment. When a fine line begins to appear under the eyes, that is the best time to do Botox. Such lining starts at the age of 25 in some people whereas it starts after 30 in others.

When you see fine lines under the eyes, it is advisable to visit a dermatologist as it is time to do Botox. If Botox is done as soon as the fine line starts, the result will be better. It can be done on people of any age.

Botox does not work permanently. It is a chemical. Once applied, the chemical does not go away for 6 months. This should be done twice a year at intervals of 6 months.

Time to do Botox

If someone comes to the doctor saying with the intention of doing Botox on the same day, the doctor gives medicine after 15 minutes. Then it takes 15 minutes to do Botox. Botox can be done in about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Does the skin get damaged after Botox?

It is wrong to say that skin deteriorates after Botox. After doing Botox, the skin gets better. If the aging process is going on, Botox will stop it.

After doing Botox three or four times, we have felt that the quality of the skin has improved even though the unit is less. There have been no instances of face damage after Botox.

How to use the unit?

Every person’s face is different. Someone has a habit of laughing and talking a lot. People who laugh and talk a lot have a lot of wrinkles. As the size of the face varies, we talk about the differences in the unit of Botox to be applied for treatment. That’s how we talk about units.

If there is a wrinkle on the forehead, it needs 12 to 15 units. If the vertical line has come, 20 more units have to be added. 10 to 12 units are needed around the eyes. It is said that 5/5 units are needed under the eyes.

What is the standard protocol of Botox now? If you want to do Botox on your Upper Face, you need 50 units for good results.

What to do if the face is completely sore?

Botox units have to be kept in different places. When the doctors are consulted, they apply Botox considering the interests and requirements of the patients. The same thing does not apply to everyone.

Doctors execute customized treatment considering the linings. Some may have it on or above eyebrows, others might have it down the lip line. 15-20 injections in various points cover 50 units. These injections are painless.

The cost of Botox

There are two indications of how to do Botox. Some have medical indications, some have cataracts. If the eyes are blinking, such a person needs Botox medically. If you want to get rid of wrinkles, you need aesthetic indication.

It is not so cheap. Doing it twice a year costs around Rs 20,000 to Rs 50,000. One should not think that doing it once is enough forever. One has to go for treatment as per their budget.

Botox in medical condition

Botox can be done if someone sweats a lot on the limbs and armpits. Botox can also be used to reduce migraines. Botox can be done according to the condition of the person. The cost of Botox depends on the number of units to be applied. Initially, Botox was developed for medical use.

What to pay attention to while doing Botox?

Botox should not be used indiscriminately. One should know about the attachment of all muscles. One should know about the anatomy of the face. You need to know where the blood vessels are coming from. The doctor understands all this very well.

Doing the same thing over and over again can lead to many complications. We have not yet found any side effects after doing Botox. Complications may come. But you have to understand everything and do it on the advice of a good doctor.

How to take care of skin after Botox?

After Botox, the skin becomes very good. The skin glows. Botox does not need extra care for the skin. However, it is better to continue the regular care of the skin even after Botox. Through Botox treatment, one can get good results in a short time.
