Botox is a trademark for the toxin Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium causes paralysis, and in 1980 doctors found a way to use it to their advantage. Once injected into a part of the body, it blocks signals from nerves to muscles. This causes the muscles to relax and become unable to contract. You can get a guide to botox treatments in Singapore by Dr. Edwin Lim to remove the wrinkles from your face.
The serum is injected with a thin needle. This causes little discomfort to the patient and no anesthesia is required. It takes about three days to a week for Botox to work. During this time, it is recommended that the patient avoid alcohol to reduce bruising.
You will enjoy full results in about six months. After this time, the muscles begin to reconnect with nerve signals to contract. At this point, some people will want a different treatment. However, sometimes even after 6 months, the muscles learn to relax more easily and the wrinkles are less pronounced.
The side effects are generally harmless. It is reasonable to assume that botox is dangerous because it is made with poison. In fact, it is very safe and has been in use since the 1980s. Some patients report mild side effects such as headache, drooping eyelids, nausea, and flu-like symptoms, but these are very rare.
