Anti Wrinkle Injection(BTX-A)

Anti- Wrinkle Injection is the most potent toxin known to mankind. Dr. Alan Scott is an ophthalmologist, who used it for the first time to take care of crossed eyes. The USFDA(US Food and Drug Administration) first approved the use of purified Anti- Wrinkle type A for strabismus or crossed eyes. Since then there has been no looking back. There have been a number of applications for the Anti- Wrinkle, but not all of the uses have been USFDA approved. It is toxin type A ( BTX-A) which is commercially available under many brand names. Only these USFDA approved makes are to be used because of the potential lethality of the toxin.

How does BTX-A act?

    BTX-A is a neurotoxin which acts by decreasing the release of neurotransmitters responsible for muscle contraction. Wrinkles and furrows are often cosmetically displeasing and may be misinterpreted as displaying anger, anxiety, fear, fatigue, pain, sadness or associated with crying. A focal weakening of the particular facial muscles responsible for the overlying wrinkles with BTX-A improves overall facial appearance by eliminating the wrinkled area and by improving changes of the overlying soft tissue.

Are there any anesthesia requirements for BTX-A procedure?

    For BTX-A session usually, no anesthesia is required. However, depending on the pain threshold of patient your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.

When can I expect a result from the treatment?

    BTX-A takes some time to act on the muscles. The effects start to appear in a couple of days, and the best rewards are seen in a week’s time. The rewards generally last about 4-6 months, and after that, the injection has to be repeated. The injections injected a number of times may give a longer lasting result.

What are the side effects of BTX-A?

    BTX-A injections have been proven to be very safe. The most severe side effect is sagging of the upper lid due to paralysis of the lid muscle or double vision caused by paralysis of small muscles of the eye. This complication is temporary and will disappear once the impact of BTX-A wears off. This is circumvented by keeping the injection away from the lid and not lying down for 4 hours after the injection. Though there is a theoretical possibility, no systemic side effect has been reported in cosmetic usage of BTX-A. The side effects of the procedure occur close to where the medication is injected. A Patient may notice redness, bruising, infection, and pain at the injection site. The bruising may be covered up with makeup.

What is the post procedure care?

    The head should be held upraised for 4 hours or more. Ice application to the injected area will help in the reduction of bruising and swelling. Makeup can be used within an hour.
