Botox Injection

Doctor Wearing White Mask over Her Face

Botox: (botulinum toxin) injection is an extremely popular anti aging cosmetic procedure.

It is a non-surgical face lift technique to reduce or eliminate frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet, neck bands and other wrinkles.

It has fast results, is non-invasive and does not leave scars; however, it does wear off and must be re-injected.

The FDA recommends Botox not be re-injected more frequently than every three months

Botox has also recently been shown to prevent frequent migraines, sweating and muscle spasms.

Botox is taken from a toxin that causes food poisoning. This sterilized, injectable form of the toxin does on a small scale what the unsterilized toxin did on large scale: it paralyzes muscles just under the skin preventing them from contracting. The skin lying on top of these paralyzed muscles then smoothes out and usually within a week the wrinkles that were there are gone.

For the best safety, a patient should neither sleep nor consume alcohol for several hours prior to treatment and the injections should be done by a qualified, board certified doctor under sterile conditions with sterile equipment as well as with precautionary equipment on hand just in case there is an emergency.

Preparation for Botox Injection:

Stop supplements or pills such as aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Vioxx, vitamin E, quinine or fish oil two weeks before the procedure can affect bleeding or bruising.
Dr. Fredric Barr, a West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, president of the Palm Beach County Plastic Surgery Society, says people undergoing Botox should prepare the same way they would for surgery.

Botox Parties

  • If something goes wrong,
    it is better to be in a medical facility.
  • People who cater to Botox parties may not be the best doctors.

  • People choose to have Botox injections in parties for several reasons.
  • First, they can get discounts for doing things in increasing volume.
  • Second, it can be nerve-wrecking to have Botox injections for the first time and if a patient is surrounded by friends in a light and easy setting, it can alleviate some of the stress. Furthermore, it takes away the stigma of having cosmetic procedures done.
