BOTOX is the most popular wrinkle reduction treatment. It is a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle causing muscles, creating a smoothened rejuvenated and a more youthful appearance. It is a simple non-surgical procedure that smoothens deep persistent facial lines, which develop over time. It is the only botulinum toxin in the world registered for the treatment of frown lines and approved by the US FDA. It is also now ratified by the Indian Drug Administration Authority.

At SANJIVANI EYE HOSPITAL in Gujarat BOTOX® injections are used for the following:

  1. Treatment of wrinkles & facial fine lines
  2. Getting an aesthetic eyebrow shape
  3. Facial Contouring (Masseter reduction to convert round/ square shaped faces to perfect oval ones)
  4. Treatment for excessive eyelid blinking (Benign Essential Blepharospasm)
  5. Treatment for facial twitching (Hemifacial Spasm)
  6. Treatment for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  7. Treatment for migraines (severe headaches)

The most common side effects are temporary which include soreness or mild bruising and can be easily covered with makeup. There could be mild tenderness on chewing hard foods in the first few weeks. Botulinum Toxin Type A is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding or for patients with a neuromuscular disease.

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to treat all adult patients up to 65 years of age.

As every person is different. It varies from patient to patient. Normally a single treatment of BOTOX® lasts for approximately 4-6 months after which there is a gradual fading of its effects. At this point it is advisable to return to the doctor to continue treatment.

India is changing rapidly. In fact, we do not see too many differences between patients in Mumbai and in the United States. Cosmesis, like we said, is NOT about looking beautiful, it is about looking presentable and the best that we can be. It is about improving and maintaining self-esteem and confidence.

Administering BOTOX requires precise understanding of facial musculature; not only for best results but also for preventing associated complications. It is best administered by a professional trained specifically to look at facial musculature dynamics.

Most definitely because BOTOX is not the panacea of all wrinkles and ageing! And every wrinkle may not be susceptible to BOTOX. A trained Facial Plastic Surgeon knows where BOTOX can be used also he does not have to rely solely on BOTOX for treatment, as there are other tools in the armamentarium. Other specialists may not have this advantage.

Botox has been used worldwide for more than 20 years with predictable results. Long term studies have shown absolutely no side effects, making Botox one of the safest drugs known to mankind.

NOTE :- BOTOX® is not the panacea of all age related or neuro muscular cures. Please contact Our Facial Plastic Surgeon at our center in Mumbai for information on whether you could benefit from BOTOX®.
