Unleashed The Truth About Botox Treatments

botox treatments

The world is full of wonders today. One of these wonders is the Botox treatment. Botox is the most popular drug created with a toxin wrought with the bacterium called Clostridium Botulinum. It is used to treat several conditions, such as:

1)  Blepharospasm

It is an involuntary and continuous contraction of muscles around your eye, causing indomitable blinking of both eyes. Botox can be used to treat people – who are 12 years old and above – with Blepharospasm.

2)  Chronic Migraine

Chronic migraine is a severe and audible neurological disorder. It is characterized with 15 headaches per month. These headaches usually last for 4 hours a day or more. Botox is the first treatment approved by FDA for Chronic Migraine.

3)  Cervical Dystonia

Cervical Dystonia is the universally known type of focal Dystonia. It is recognized by unusual squeezing and twisting muscle contractions within your neck and head area. Botox is used to provide treatment for those people 16 years old and above who are suffering from Cervical Dystonia.

4)   Strabismus

Strabismus, also known as Heterotropia, is a visual defect. It results when your eyes are not accordingly aligned with each other. Botox is an approved treatment for eye muscle problems in people who are 12 years and older.

5)  Severe Primary Axillary Hyperhidrosis

It is a disorder distinguished by abnormally increased perspiration. Patients with Severe Primary Axillary Hyperhidrosis may sweat up to four to five times more than the normal sweating. Botox injection is a minimally aggressive way to combat Hyperhidrosis.

6)  Upper Limb Spasticity

Upper Limb Spasticity is a condition which results in uncomfortable muscle tightness and stiffness in your elbow, wrist and fingers. Botox injection is usually used to diagnose a patient with Upper Limb Spasticity.

Aside from these conditions, Botox can also be used as a beauty treatment together with dermal filler for those people who want to look younger. It is used for cosmetic purposes such as treating Glabella frown lines, orbital creases and horizontal creases.

Botox Treatment Misconception

Most people confuse Botox treatments with other Botulinum Toxin Type A treatments. The truth is, not all Botulinum Toxin Type A treatments use Botox, but all Botox treatments use Botulinum Toxin Type A. Did you see the difference? Botox is just a brand name for BTX-A. It is the top leading brand of Botulinum Toxins Type A used all over the world. Thus, it is not a surprise at all that there are a lot of people who misguidedly call every treatment as Botox treatment. This is the most common misconception about Botox.

There are a lot of products other than Botox, which features the use of Botulinum Toxin Type A. Some practitioners use these products. These may be cheaper compared to the price of Botox. However, there are several differences when it comes to the quality. You should always keep in mind that different Botulinum Toxin products diffused differently, and thus, making a difference in the quality of its result.

Unlike any other cosmetic products based on Botulinum Toxin, Botox have a complete complement of protective proteins bunched around the active part of the molecules. The protective proteins used in the Botox weighs about 900 kD.

Due to this, the complexes of the Botox product move slower than those of other Botulinum Toxin products. Slower movement means higher precision of its effect. That is why most of the patients are happier with the result of Botox treatment compared to the result of any other BTX-A products.

The Best Result Comes With The Best Product, Procedure And Practitioners

Botox may have the best quality among all BTX-A products. However, you cannot assure the best result of it without the proper execution of the treatment. Remember that every best product should be accompanied by the best procedure. That is the reason why it is important to have treatments performed by the right practitioner. Our clinic is composed of trained and qualified nurses and surgeons.

These physicians got their advanced training to specialize in the Botox treatment. There are a lot of people claiming to be experts in the Botox procedure. In fact, some are not certified medical practitioners. Do not risk your health by engaging with cheap services. Remember that it is not always the best way to rely on cheap products and cheap services.

Another thing we guarantee to our customers is that we use the appropriate Botox dilution. We use the standard measurement of saline solution needed for the Botox. You should know that a set of 100 unit vial of Botox needs 2.5cc of Saline. The Botox will not be as effective as it should be if you will use too diluted solution. It is because it will cause faster diffusion by which will affect nearby muscles. It will lead to lesser precision.

You don’t have to worry about the top-ups you need right after your treatment.
