Botox works by blocking the signal from your nerves to your muscles – effectively paralyzing the muscle around the injection site. This muscular paralysis is what makes Botox so effective at treating so many ailments. If you experience excess sweating, Botox can paralyze the sweat glands; and in 2010 the FDA approved Botox for treating chronic migraines.
In treating migraines, your provider at Cherry Hills Midwifery, Obstetrics, and Gynecology injects the Botox into nerve endings where it blocks the chemicals involved in pain transmission. And, of course, the most well-known use for Botox is reducing the appearance of wrinkles, which it does by paralyzing the wrinkle-causing muscle, making it no longer able to contract as forcefully.
Botox can be used to treat a number of ailments and conditions, including:
Botox takes just minutes to administer, and there is virtually no downtime. Afterward, your technician advises you on how to get the best results from your procedure with recommendations such as not to lie down for four hours and to steer clear of facials for a couple of days.
You may start to see results within 48 hours but it can take up to a week, and you can expect first-time results to last for between three and six months. Regular Botox users find that the longer you continue treatment, the longer you can go between appointments.
