Understanding the Botox Cosmetic Procedure
Botox is a well-known skin treatment that has been extensively used for many years and is perfect for restoring flexibility and movement to facial muscles resulting in a graceful and even skin texture. However, to realise its full potential, you must first understand what it is, how it works, and how it is administered.
What is Botox?
Essentially a protein, Botox, is made from Botulinum toxin (Botox), which is a poison produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. This bacterium is extremely harmful and can cause muscle weakness, paralysis, and even death. However, extracted from the toxin Botox, which is a short name for the trade name of the active ingredient called Botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A), is a proven and safe way to treat many skin-related issues. Botox has been extensively used in clinical practice since it became commercially available in the UK in 1989. BTX-A is currently the most widely used cosmetic injections treatment in the world and is routinely used on patients to treat a wide range of skin-related conditions, including crow’s feet around the eyes, lines on the forehead, wrinkles, and small muscle spasms around the lips as well as facial lines that result from smiling and frowning.
How Does Botox Work?
Being neurotoxin, Botox works by slowing down the signals in the body that tell muscles to move. Essentially it restricts the muscle movements and therefore reducing dynamic wrinkles due to repetitive facial movements. This causes the muscles in the face and body to temporarily relax, resulting in a reduction in the severity of wrinkles. Relaxing the facial muscles tightens the forehead and smoothens the expression lines between the eyebrows. The skin is then able to better reproduce the body’s natural collagen-producing a fresher looking, more natural, and younger-looking complexion. However, Botox does not really act like a cream and cannot be merely applied directly to the skin. Botox is applied using specialised needles, which penetrate the skin and muscle tissue, delivering the prescribed amount of the medication. This is done for the strongest muscle movements, such as those associated with the forehead and brow, which is why Botox is also commonly referred to as a wrinkle treatment.
Unfortunately, collagen, which has the power to restore the skin’s elasticity, is replaced with collagen contraction. This can lead to hardened skin, which becomes lifeless and sagging signs of ageing. As we age, the body produces about 30% less collagen, and the percentage of dead skin cells in our skin increases to produce flakiness and roughness. This results in rough skin that is unable to breathe, which draws heat and may make our skin look dull. These effects cause the skin to look less healthy and young, but with Botox, you can defuse the cutaneous ageing process.
Botox Colchester has been proved to be an effective facial treatment that helps to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and deepen laugh lines and other facial expressions. Though it may sound like a simple procedure, the procedure of administering Botox is tricky and must be done by a professional.
The first step is to carefully examine and analyse the skin and then to decide how much Botox is required. The botulinum toxin is then injected into the selected muscles using thin needles. The main process of each sequence is the same, involving the injection of Botox into particular muscle structures around the eyebrows, in the crow’s feet area right around the eyes, on the forehead, in the cheekbone area, and along the neck and jawline. Botox then relaxes the facial muscles by temporarily blocking the chemical release that normally causes them to contract. The muscles are then laid after Botox shots, resulting in a longer-lasting effect.
Specifically, Botox directly paralyzes facial muscles, making them temporarily less active, and this reduces the signs of ageing. Depending on the skin condition and the extent of Botox injections required, results can be seen after a few days and can last for around four to six months, although these effects can be extended through repeat treatments every few months.
What Is Muscle Relaxing Injections?
Muscle relaxing injections can be done under local anaesthetic or with oral sedation depending on individual circumstances. An injector holds the skin taut to reduce the chance of pain or to bruise when using a small needle to inject a small amount of Botox directly into the muscle. The Botox prevents muscles from twitching or contracting, which will result in less movement and fewer skin contractions. The skin then relaxes and becomes smoother, younger, and healthier.

5 Important Benefits of Botox
Use of Botox is not just limited for cosmetic purposes. It is also used for serious medical conditions and complex pains. One of the reasons Botox is so popular is because of its ability to inhabit a myriad of different scenarios.
Here are the 5 most impressive and important benefits you will get from Botox Colchester facial injections.
1. Effectively Treat Drooping Brow
Drooping brow or Brow Ptosis is one of the most beautiful natural signs of ageing, and these drooping lines often give an impression of sadness or anger no matter how much you try to change your expression. Botox can effectively treat drooping brows by reducing volume and lifting the skin, giving you a younger expression without the need for any surgery.
2. Help Control Migraine Pain
Botox can be a lifesaver and a cure for many migraine sufferers. Administered through injections, Botox can help relieve chronic headaches, which are known to be a symptom for migraine sufferers. Botox can be used to relieve headaches, by limiting muscle contractions which can trigger the spasms that cause the headaches. By temporarily relaxing facial muscles which can contract and tighten when we feel pain, Botox can relieve the tension that comes with the pain. This makes Botox a popular treatment for those people who suffer from headaches and migraines but do not want to take any prescribed medications.
3. Excessive Sweating
One of Botox’s most used benefits is to treat excessive sweating. People who suffer from profuse sweating often cannot wear certain clothes, go out in public without embarrassment and may be hindered by their own sweat. Botox can effectively reduce sweating and the physiological responses that come with excessive sweating to dramatically improve the quality of life for your patients.
Botox for excessive sweating is referred to as Myofascial ptosis, and Botox can help reduce or control excessive sweating by putting an end to the physiological disorder, which often triggers excessive sweating. By using Botox, you reduce the constantly contracting sweat glands, stopping sweating in a natural way.
4. Known Treatment for Bell’s Palsy
Bell’s palsy is another problem that can be completely treated with Botox Colchester. It is an acute neuromuscular illness that causes the muscles of the face to weaken and become uncontrollable. It is a debilitating paralytic disorder which can result in chronic problems. However, Botox is used to treat Bell’s palsy by keeping the muscles of the face under control. Botox used in Bell’s Palsy mainly is the botulinum toxin called type A, which is administered in small doses and prevents the neurotransmitter release that communicates signals between the nerve cells and the brain.
5. Squinting Can Be Cured
As we age, our face begins to sag, causing it to have a tired and older appearance. We can smooth this out with Botox, which can also help us look less tired. Botox Colchester can be used to treat squinting by relaxing the muscles that pull the eyelids back and forth.
