Very popular in aesthetic clinics, wrinkle botox (การ ฉีด โบ ลด ริ้ว รอย which is the term in Thai) is mainly used to reduce wrinkles and expression lines and can be used on various body parts. However, its application goes far beyond the aesthetic context and can even be used for medicinal purposes. Check out in this article everything you need to know about Botox:

What Is Botox?

Botox is one of the trade names for botulinum toxin, a substance capable of paralyzing the muscles of a particular region for a certain period—other trade names: Dysport, Xeomin, Botulifit.

How Or Botox Works?

Treatment with Botox consists of applying small doses of the toxin through injections and at specific points in the region to be treated. The number of applications required and the points at which they will be applied is defined according to the patient’s goals and the specialist’s recommendations. The intention is that the treatment results are always as natural as possible, so consultation with a specialist is essential.

Wrinkles appear due to facial aging, which occurs due to age, inadequate sun exposure, poor diet, and smoking. But the essential factor for its appearance is the natural contraction of the face muscles, which form the so-called expression lines.

When injected into these wrinkles, botulinum toxin acts as a neuromuscular blocker, that is, blocking the transmission of stimuli from neurons to muscles, preventing, partially or entirely, muscle contraction. In this way, the region where Botox is applied has firmer, smoother, and more vibrant skin. Results usually appear after 48 hours.

What Is Botox Indicated For?

Botox for aesthetic use is indicated to smooth wrinkles and expression lines on the face. Among the lines treated are forehead wrinkles, the glabella (space between the eyebrows), and crow’s feet, wrinkles that form in the eye area. It can also be used on the chin (to fight cellulite chin) on the neck and décolleté. In addition, botulinum toxin can also be used for:

  • Promote a more harmonious smile, reducing the appearance of gums
  • Reduction of sweating in case of hyperhidrosis or bromhidrosis
  • Control bruxism
  • Decrease tension headache
  • Relax an excessive muscle contraction due to a stroke
  • Decreased tremors in case of Parkinson’s
