Botox Injections Overview

Botulinum toxin is a material that has been known for many years and used for medical purposes for more than 50 years. Botox was approved for excess sweating (hyperhidrosis), and in 2010, Botox was approved for the treatment of migraines. Nowadays, it is used to soften the skin and remove wrinkles. There are many dermatologists, which use it as a skin tightening in Delhi. Many physicians strive to inject it in the patient’s body to get the desired results. It is obvious thing, that a medical expert should have knowledge of using Botox injections in the right way, so that a patient does not suffer from a side effect.

Botox is a prescribed treatment, in which injections are injected into muscles and used for:

  • Treating overactive bladder symptoms such as a strong need to urinate with leaking or wetting accidents (urge urinary incontinence), a strong need to urinate right away (urgency), and urinating often (frequency) in adults 18 years and older when another type of medicine (anticholinergic) does not work well enough or cannot be taken.
  • To treat leakage of urine (incontinence) in adults 18 years and older with overactive bladder due to neurologic disease who still have leakage or cannot tolerate the side effects after trying an anticholinergic medication

Botox Injection Preparation

The material comes as a crystalline substance, when it is purchased, after the purchase it has to be reconstituted with saline or another liquid. Practitioners add some water on that when reconstituting it. It is important to remember that if a dermatologist is offering you Botox injection, it will be provided by him/her with some water or other substance added in it.

During the Procedure

The patient is placed in a table or raised position on the exam table. The area in the body, where the injection is applied is cleaned very well. After this, the Botox is injected into the desired areas. It is common for pressure to be applied if an area seems to be bleeding after the injection.

Botox Results

As stated before, the results of botox treatment are ultimate. You can get the results within three to 10 days or even sooner. As time passes, the muscle activity will gradually return to normal.

Results can vary depending on who is performing the injection on the patient. So, it is always suggested, that you should visit a best skin specialist in your area.
