Botox by Allergan has gone many scientific kinds of research and showing amazing results.
Here, in Fillers Supplies, we offer Botox by Allergan. As an international wholesale company, we cooperate only with well-known manufacturers who provide only best quality of their goods. We and our clients have proven this agent as a very helpful tool. Such injections of Botox – Botulin toxin A – are preferred by a lot of women, primary, to eliminate wrinkles on their face. In addition, those injections can help with the over sweating treatment in the area of the palms and armpits. However, we strongly encourage clients to know more about the product, peculiarities of its applying and all the advantages and disadvantages in general.
Botulin toxin type A is synthesized by anaerobic bacteria of the family Clostridium (microorganisms). In medicine, Botox was used firstly in 1960. Then this toxin gave the opportunity to radically change the lives of many patients with a variety of diseases (not only cosmetic issues). Doctors used – and still continue to do so- it for example in the case of paresis (partial paralysis) and paralysis of the facial nerve, for the reason, that the injection of botulin toxin stimulates muscle relaxation and restoration of face symmetry. Botox used to be even a treatment on migraines. In addition, it is used by nerve pathologists in the cases of headaches, cerebral palsy, strabismus and other diseases of the nervous system. Botulinotherapy can be suggested by orthodontist who needs to cure bruxism – teeth grinding.
Botulin toxin acts locally: it disrupts the transmission of the nerve impulse from the nerve end to the muscle, thereby relaxing this particular muscle. But this process is temporary, so Botox injections should be repeated every 3-5 months for prolonging the effect.
While using botulin toxin in the case of paralysis, doctors noticed that it perfectly smoothes wrinkles. This moment has introduced Botox into cosmetology. So, usually, after using Botox, wrinkles on the forehead, nose bridge and near the eyes are smoothed. It is possible to do correction in the lower third of the face, but the muscles in this area are too close. Therefore, there is a possibility to relax the wrong muscle. However, such a consequence does not carry any danger to one’s health: just the corners of the mouth may temporarily drop. So, as we can see, injections of botulin toxin require an excellent knowledge of anatomy.
On the other hand, botulin toxin is not able to completely smooth out static wrinkles – deep, that have long been formed. But despite this, botulin therapy is very effective in treating dynamic wrinkles, with an excellent prevention of the formation of new ones. The result of such therapy can be observed on the second day and finally will be clearly visible after two weeks. It will persist for 3-5 months, so if the patient wants to have a smooth and wrinkle-free skin, this procedure shall be repeated in those terms.
Doctors from the entire world admitted: systemic side effects as the result of botulin toxin injection have not been identified yet. It may be some general inconveniences, e.g. headache, nausea or neck weakness. And still, as with almost every preparation, there is a list of contraindications:
- Resistance (insensitivity) to Botox
- Oncological diseases
- Violation of the integrity of the skin at the injection area
- Chronic diseases in the phase of exacerbation (on the moment of injection).
Botox therapy allows not only achieving wrinkle smoothing. In addition, botulin toxin also weakens the activity of sweat glands, allowing for a while to solve this unpleasant problem.
In the treatment of so-called hyperhidrosis, Botox might be injected into the armpits, palms, soles and groin. Agent injected superficially and in large quantities. Stopping sweat secretion is due to a violation of the transmission of the nerve impulse to the sweat gland: the sweat ceases to be produced in a following place for 4-6 months. The number of, let’s say, “dry” months depends on how actively a person does sports and how well the microcirculation is developed.
The degree of sweating is very interesting and determined with the help of an iodine test: the cosmetologist dryly wipes a certain area, for example, underarms, applies iodine and after that sprinkles with starch. In those places that have strongly blackened, there is the highest concentration of sweat glands.
While injecting botulin toxin into one area, for example, underarms, the cosmetologist should warn the patient that sweat may start to exude from another area, for example back. But this will happen only in conditions that are extreme for the organism: high temperature outdoor, active sports, etc. In other cases, this is shall not be noticeable. But keep in mind, botulin toxin can not be injected in all places at the same time: sweating is necessary for controlling body temperature.
Sometimes we can experience different kind of criticism on Botox injections regarding particular unsatisfactory outcome. It may occur by two main reasons.
Firstly, it could be low-quality or incorrect Botox agents for specific body area. Usually, it is the second issue, but we guarantee, that Filler Supplies Team continually monitors our products whether they meet the highest quality standards. The same is with shipping – it must fulfill all requirements of specific transportation (e.g. temperature). We are always ready to assist and organize quick and optimal worldwide shipment.
Secondly, the procedure could be performed by incompetent person, who has no idea about the anatomy. We are happy to share additional information about Botox, Botulin, Fillers and other preparations, but you need to make a fruitfully consultation (with the examination conducting) with the relevant cosmetology expert.
