Botox usage

Botox can be used safely to treat wrinkles by relaxing muscles that cause the unwanted wrinkles and creases. Typical treatment areas include the lines around the eyes known as crows feet caused by squinting or smiling, the horizontal lines across the forehead caused by raising the eyebrows, and the lines and folding of skin between the eyebrows caused by frowning. 

At KateNicole, we use neurotoxin to diminish fine lines. Together we will assess the areas of concern and will take time to educate you on the best treatment options to reduce the effects of aging, helping you to make the best decision for you. Typically botox treatment takes 20 - 30 mins and lasts 3-4 months. 

Botox is injected using very tiny needles which will feel like a small pinch. It takes approximately 14 days for Botox to take full effect. Botox is not permanent. The results typically last from 3-4 months. If you stop Botox injections, your appearance will return to its baseline. If however, you discontinue after several years of use,  your muscles are better trained to be relaxed, therefore, you will achieve the desired results with less volume than when you originally required.

What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX® is a highly purified, safe and naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles in the skin. This relaxation lasts for a number of months, and then the treated muscles gradually return to their original condition.

Botox is a  brand name for the commercial form of Botulinum toxin, a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Botox inhibits the release of acetylcholine from presynaptic motor neurons,  thus interfering with nerve conduction of a signal resulting in muscle weakness. Although this may sound worrisome, the safety margin of Botox is about 100:1, that means that it would take about 100 times the therapeutic dose to poison someone with Botox. In comparison, the most common medicines, such as Tylenol and Aspirin, have the safety margin around 20:1.  

BOTOX is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and across the forehead. Botox has been approved by the FDA since December 9, 1991.

The history of botox

The history & science of Botox is one of the most widely used cosmetic procedures. The cosmetic use of Botox started in 1987 when a husband and wife team of Canadian doctors, Drs. Carruthers (Vancouver Ophthalmologist and Dermatologist) noted by accident that patients treated for Blepharospasm had also had a vast improvement of dynamic wrinkles of the glabella.

Benefits of BOTOX®: 

Did you know that there are many benefits of BOTOX? One of the most known benefits of BOTOX injections is that they can be used to relax the facial muscles, resulting in smoother skin and fewer wrinkles. In areas such as the forehead, where horizontal wrinkles tend to form, the BOTOX benefits are particularly valuable.

BOTOX is also known to be beneficial for medical benefits including helping to reduce headaches and migraines. According to studies from The National Institute of Health , after patients who received Botox injections reported fewer migraines. When Botox is injected into the forehead, neck and shoulder, it releases tension in the muscles, relieving strain on the nervous system, thus reducing the pain of migraines.

Other uses of Botox that aren’t as known but are FDA approved:

  • Lazy eye: The most common cause of lazy eye is an imbalance in the muscles responsible for positioning the eye. This can result in crossed eyes.
  • Muscle contractures: Some neurological conditions, such as cerebral palsy, can cause your limbs to pull in toward your center. In some cases, these contracted muscles can be relaxed with Botox injections.
  • Excessive Sweating: Also known as Hyperhidrosis causes some people to sweat excessively, without change of temperature or any other external causes.
  • Migraines: Additionally, Botox is used to effectively treat Migraines
