BOTOX® is a drug that weakens or paralyzes muscle. In small doses, it can reduce skin wrinkles and help treat some medical conditions. BOTOX® is a protein made from Botulinum toxin, which the bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces. This is the same toxin that causes botulism.

BOTOX® is one of the most popular medically-administered cosmetic treatments throughout the world. It helps reduce the appearance of ageing by smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® derives from C. botulinum bacteria, which are present in many natural settings, including soil, lakes, forests, and the intestinal tracts of mammals and fish.

 

Naturally occurring C. botulinum bacteria and spores are generally harmless. Problems only arise when the spores transform and the cell population increases. At a certain point, the bacteria begin producing Botulinum toxin, the deadly neurotoxin responsible for botulism. However, when BOTOX® is appropriately used in a therapeutic context, it is safe and has few side effects,

Manufacturers make BOTOX® injections with very small doses of Botulinum toxin. The drug can temporarily paralyze muscles, which can benefit people with various muscle or nerve disorders.

How Does It Work?

BOTOX® is a neurotoxin. These substances target the nervous system, disrupting the nerve signaling processes that stimulate muscle contraction. This is how the drug causes temporary muscle paralysis. In order for any muscle to contract, the nerves release a chemical messenger called acetylcholine at the junction where nerve endings meet muscle cells. Acetylcholine attaches to receptors on the muscle cells and causes the cells to contract, or shorten. Essentially, this inhibitory effect blocks the message from your nervous system that tells your muscles to contract and instead tells them to relax. This relaxation of your muscles is what reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

The effects of Botox are usually visible 3 to 5 days after the injection. You may have slight bruising after the procedure, and we recommend for you to avoid physical activity and alcohol for at least a day.

It takes about 1 to 2 weeks for Botox to reach its peak effect. The effects of Botox aren’t permanent. Wrinkles will usually return within 3 to 4 months. If you want to maintain the same appearance, you’ll have to continue getting injections.

Are There Any Side Effects Or Precautions To Be Aware Of?

Botox injections are relatively safe when performed by an experienced Practitioner. Possible complications include:

  • flu-like symptoms

  • swelling and bruising at the injection site

  • headaches

  • dry eyes

  • excessive tears

In rare circumstances, the toxin used during the procedure can spread to other parts of your body. If you notice any of the following complications, you should immediately contact your doctor.

  • loss of muscle control

  • vision problems

  • trouble speaking or swallowing

  • trouble breathing

  • loss of bladder control

People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to cow’s milk should also avoid Botox. You should also avoid lying down for several hours post-procedure.

Cosmetic Uses

The primary use of BOTOX® is reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles. BOTOX® injections are the most popular cosmetic procedure nationwide. In 2016, over 7 million people had BOTOX® treatments. The effects are temporary, lasting 3–12 months, depending on the type of treatment. This treatment is popular with both male & female clients, although women still make up the majority of these procedures, “Brotox” is also becoming mainstream among men. More men are getting Botox today than ever before, as many feel that maintaining a youthful appearance helps them gain a competitive edge in the workplace. Men naturally have stronger muscles therefore more product may be needed for the desired effect, this may increase the treatment price slightly.

Cosmetic botulinum toxin therapy, aka neurotoxin injectables, work to help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by paralyzing the muscles underneath. Typically used to help treat frown lines, crow's feet, and hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating).

BOTOX® is an injectable neuromodulator that works to relax nerve-muscle imbalance.  In other words: Wherever its injected, BOTOX® causes the underlying muscles to temporarily stop moving. When the muscles stop moving, the wrinkles stop forming.

People often request the injections in the following areas of the face:

  • wrinkles between the eyebrows, called frown lines, glabellar lines, or elevens

  • wrinkles around the eyes, known as crow’s feet

  • horizontal creases in the forehead

The FDA have approved the injections for use around the eyes and on the forehead.

The Popularity Of Botox Is On The Rise For Men

Women still dominate the market for cosmetic procedures, but the number of men getting work done is trending upward. Botox and other botulinum toxin injections like Azzalure (used at Melanie Jayne's Beauty & Aesthetics Clinic) and Dysport are some of the most popular anti-aging methods requested by men.

Some factors that may be contributing to the increased popularity of Botox among men include:

  • Workplace competitiveness. Many men report being motivated to get Botox to maintain their competitiveness against their younger co-workers. Many people feel that keeping a youthful appearance helps them fight against ageism in the workplace.

  • Social media. The rise of social media and online dating apps may also be a motivating factor for some men who want to look their best for their online profiles.

  • Encouragement from significant other. Some men may be motivated to get cosmetic procedures for their significant other.

 

What Are The Most Popular Injection Sites For Men?

The most popular reason men get Botox injections is to reduce facial wrinkles. Botox is also used to treat several health conditions, such as neck spasms, lazy eyes, and excessive sweating.

The most common places men get Botox is:

  • In the outer corners of the eyes to prevent crow’s feet

  • Between the eyebrows to target frown lines

  • In the forehead to reduce creases

  • Around the mouth to target laugh lines​

If You’re Contemplating Botox, Here Are Some Things To Consider:

 

1. Botox doesn’t actually erase wrinkles

Botox will soften the lines caused by the muscles, any lines or skin damage due to other factors, e.g, sun, smoking etc.. will need to be treated separately. Botox is more preventative than restorative. Its active ingredient “freezes” facial muscles to keep you from contracting them in ways that deepen lines and wrinkles.

“Any line that is present at rest, whether it is an etched in frown line, or a deep wrinkle, is not going to disappear with Botox. Botox is not an iron,” says medical, cosmetic, and surgical dermatologist Dr. Estee Williams, MD.

Therefore, the earlier you get Botox, the more preventative its effects — hence the trend of getting Botox as early as your 20s.

 

2. It’s Temporary

Some clients assume the miraculous effects of Botox last indefinitely. But this simply isn’t true.

The average duration for Botox for glabella [the lines between the brows], forehead, and lateral crows’ feet is approximately three to four months. And there are certain factors that may make Botox fade faster, clients who exercise a lot or who are very expressive may feel that the Botox lasts closer to three months.

 

3. There Is Minimal Discomfort

A small thin needle is used to administer the botox therefore minimising pain & discomfort. If you do have a needle phobia or low pain tolerance then clients can apply a numbing cream prior to their appointment. It is not uncommon for some clients to experience irritation, lumps or bruising where the injections have been administered, this settles within a few days.

4. There Are Certain Things You Can’t Do Afterwards

Don't be planning to run a marathon the day after your Botox appointment as exercise is not recommended for at least 24-48 hours post treatment. This is because heat causes increased blood flow which might cause the botox to be dispersed & therefore not last as long. For six hours following your procedure it is not advised to lie down, wear a hat or headband. You must keep your head level and do not bend your head forward for long lengths. No heavy exercise until the next day, also do not take Ibuprofen (or any other blood-thinning medications), which could increase bruising at the injection sites.

 

5. It’s Not Just For Celebrities

Judging from the smooth foreheads of most Hollywood A-listers, Botox is a given among celebrities, but it's not just for the celebrities, speak to your friends and acquaintances, you will be surprised to learn how many have already had it. Botox is becoming more popular everyday, it’s really not that uncommon...... and its not just for the over 40's either, as mentioned earlier, many clients in their 20's regularly have Botox treatments.

Waiting until your face is full of deep wrinkles before having Botox is a bit like waiting until your have a heart attack before seeing a Cardiologist - Prevention rather than cure.

 

6. Getting Botox Can Improve Your Mood

I know it sounds drastic, but Botox definitely can improve your mood and make you feel & LOOK happier! Frown lines are a real concern to some clients... who wants to look angry all the time? By treating the middle of the brows & relaxing the muscles (Glabella area) your facial features are immediately softened & the frown removed, (no longer looking angry). The faces we make carry emotional weight. You’ve probably heard that simply smiling more can make you feel happier — and not frowning can have the same effect too.

7. The ‘Frozen’ Look Isn't Always Necessary

If there’s one thing everyone seems to fear about Botox, it’s looking like an expressionless robot. The look is down to the client, a Botox procedure doesn't have to 'Freeze" your face making you look unnatural. The muscles can be treated with less Botox to relax the treated muscle, softening the lines but still allowing a little movement. This can be discussed with your Aesthetic Practitioner, Mel prior to your appointment.

Does Botox Prevent Wrinkles?

Absolutely. BOTOX® is a highly purified toxin that can temporarily erase or reduce horizontal forehead lines, vertical frown lines, and crow's-feet. The injections slow muscles that contract hundreds of times a day, eventually etching lines in the skin. Basically, wherever BOTOX® is injected in the body, it paralyses the muscles underneath the skin. BOTOX® interferes with the nerve stimulation of the muscle causing excess facial expressions, when the muscle relaxes, the line diminishes.

 

BOTOX® is not designed to remove facial expressions, It's designed to soften lines of excessive facial expression from squinting, frowning, and smiling.  It does paralyse your muscles, but it will not affect the nerves that cause sensation, or make you feel numb. When it is used correctly, it can lift the brow to give an appealing and sincere look.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

What's the Ideal Age to Start Using BOTOX®?

This also varies — and it's mostly up to you! You don't need it before you have wrinkles to hide, or you can use it preventatively. Prevention is the new mantra, although there are some women in their 40s with few or no wrinkles who require very little BOTOX®, and women in their 20s who require more.

Basically, a client can have BOTOX® safely whenever they are bothered by their wrinkles or simply want to prevent them from forming in the first place.

How Long Does BOTOX® Last?

Everyone is different, so the answer varies from client to client. In general, the results can be seen within four to five days, and usually last for three to six months with no downtime or surgery, and little to no discomfort.

Will My Friends Know I've Had Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

Yes and no. A good result will leave you looking fresher, more cheerful, and perhaps younger. Tell tale signs of BOTOX® that has been badly done are a smooth and shiny forehead, or crow's-feet that don't move when you laugh or cry.

However, whether or not you've got the tell tale signs of a recent neurotoxin appointment, as long as you're happy with the results, it shouldn't matter if your friends, family, or complete strangers on the street can tell the difference.

What Do Anti-Wrinkle Injections Treatment Involve?

The injections take only minutes to perform and clients experience no downtime. The needles used to inject BOTOX® are very thin, which means most clients do not have a problem with pain. If you find the treatment uncomfortable then a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied prior to treatment. Some clients experience minor bruising or swelling after the procedure.

What Is The Difference Between A Filler  And Anti-Wrinkle Injections?

BOTOX® does not plump up facial lines or creases like a filler. Fillers help to fill in the valleys that cause larger lines or creases. Instead, Anti-Wrinkle Injections temporarily paralyses muscle movement to soften or 'freeze' the action of muscles that create these unwanted creases and wrinkles.

How Should I Prepare For Anti-Wrinkle Injections Treatments?

Avoid taking Aspirin, Anti-inflammatory tablets, fish oil, alcohol and Vitamin E for a couple of days prior to treatment. These can increase bleeding and bruising.

Will My Anti-Wrinkle Injections Look Natural?

When Anti-Wrinkle Injections are administered the results will be natural. Always discuss your expectations and preference with Mel during your consultation. Often people get concerned because they are under the assumption that Anti-Wrinkle Injections will make them look unnaturally frozen. This will not be the case if you receive professional advice and treatment and do not receive excess treatments.

When Can I Expect To See The Anti-Wrinkle Injections Results?

The results of Anti-Wrinkle Injections usually appear within 24 to 72 hours, but the full effect can take up to 2 weeks. At this point, touch ups can be done if needed. Benefits of Anti-Wrinkle Injections typically last up to four months.  A review is required 10 days after your treatment.

Are Anti-Wrinkle Injections Safe?

Azzalure Botulinum toxin type A Anti-Wrinkle Injections, the product used at Melanie Jayne’s Beauty & Aesthetics Clinic are FDA approved for safety and efficiency. We find that this is the best & most effective product after testing all brands.

When Should I Get My Anti-Wrinkle Injections Treatment?

Anytime! Anti-Wrinkle Injections takes 2 weeks for full effect therefore we recommend you do it a minimum of 2-4 weeks before you have a special event. Whether it’s for a wedding, birthday, holiday, red carpet event, high school reunion, special occasion or anytime you just want to look fresh and feel your best.

What Can I Expect the Day After My Treatment?

Everyone is different, but generally, not too much. Results will usually begin to show within four to five days after the treatment, and there is no downtime, as well as little or no discomfort. After those first few days, results will continue to develop gradually over the course of two weeks, so ideally book your treatment 2 weeks ahead of any events.

Patients taking medications that contain aspirin or NSAIDs can develop pinpoint blue bruising. Patients can wear makeup immediately but should avoid heavy workouts for 24 hours.

Aftercare Following Your Azzalure Anti Wrinkle Treatment (BOTOX®)

Immediately After:

  • DON’T apply makeup or have a spray tan for 12 hours after treatment. This is to avoid the risk of infection.

  • Avoid getting too hot 48 hours after treatment, for example strenuous exercise, hot weather, sun beds, sauna, steam room. This is because heat causes increased blood flow which might cause the BOTOX® to be dispersed and therefore not last as long.

  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours following treatment.

  • Keep upright for 6 hours — no bending over for long periods or lying on your front or side. This is to avoid pressure in the area and to avoid increased blood flow which might cause the BOTOX® to be dispersed and therefore not last as long.

  • Avoid headwear or hats that are tightly fitted across the forehead.

  • No rubbing or massaging of the injected area for 2 days after treatment. Use gentle strokes away from the eyes when washing the face. This is to avoid preventing the BOTOX® reaching the cells it needs to in order to work. After washing face, pat skin dry.

  • Don’t touch your face - To avoid spreading the toxin, don’t touch your face for at least 1 day. Some doctors suggest waiting 3 days.

 

For 2 Weeks Later

 

  • Avoid any other facial treatments, especially microdermabrasion, facial electrical stimulation & micro needling treatments.

  • Avoid exposure to strong sunlight, saunas & very cold temperatures.

 

 

After getting Botox, it’s typical to have redness, tenderness, and swelling. These side effects usually disappear in 1 day.

Bruising is also common. You can apply a cold compress for relief. The bruising should go away in about 2 weeks.

 

But if you notice any of the following effects, get medical help:

 

  • muscle weakness

  • trouble swallowing

  • difficulty speaking

  • difficulty breathing

  • poor bladder control

  • vision changes

 

Although these side effects are extremely rare, they warrant immediate medical attention.
