The patient is asked to contract the muscles in the area being treated so the surgeon can determine the proper location for injection. In most cases, BTX is injected directly into the muscle with a tiny needle. It takes a few days to realize the effect of BTX injections.
o PROCEDURE TIME- Surgery takes approx. 5-10 minutes per procedure. It is done on either eye/ both eyes.
o POSTOPERATIVE CARE– No downtime. Patients can immediately resume normal activities. Long experience has proven BTX to be safe. To date, no systemic complications associated with BTX injections have been documented.
o SUCCESS RATE – Ranges from 80-95%%
o RE-INJECTION – The effects last from 3-4 months and require repeat treatments.
o SIDE EFFECTS – Possible side effects include local numbness, swelling, bruising, or a burning sensation during injection. Some patients have reported temporary headache and nausea. Most complications are of short duration and can be avoided with proper injection techniques.
BTX injections for aesthetic purposes appear to be safe and effective. Patients, who show early signs of aging, as well as those who may not be suitable candidates for more extensive aesthetic facial surgery, may be good candidates for this procedure. Certain medications (some antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, or aspirin) and even some vitamins and herbs may increase the potency of BTX and may increase bleeding and bruising at the time of injection. Therefore, patients should be candid with their surgeon about all medications and supplements. Pregnant or nursing women should postpone undergoing this procedure. It is not known whether injection of BTX has any effect on a fetus or whether it is found in breast milk.
