What is Botox?

Dermal Fillers or Botox is a drug made from a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called botulinum toxin. It is used medically to treat certain muscular conditions and cosmetically remove wrinkles by temporarily paralysing muscles.

What do dermal fillers treat?

Dermal Fillers are a great treatment for wrinkles, or lip enhancement. But it can also be used on other conditions such as lazy eye, and cervical dystonia. It is also now being used to treat excessive sweating from the hands and underarms.
Over time, the muscles we use on our face to create facial expressions, sun damage and the human ageing process can carve out grooves, lines and wrinkles in the skin which do not disappear when the muscles are relaxed. Dermal Fillers relaxes the muscles and skin appears more youthful and less wrinkled.

How does it work?

When dermal fillers are injected into the problem area, it freezes the muscle movement by blocking neuro-transmitters for a period of 4-6 months, so the treatment needs to be administered a few times a year to maintain the curative affects. Dermal fillers treatment should be undertaken by a qualified medical professional (preferably a cosmetic surgeon) as it is very important to get the right amount in the right area to avoid asymmetrical results, muscle drooping, frozen expressions and potentially dangerous consequences. Administered properly there are not many known problems associated with the treatment. If the treatment is stopped the muscles will begin to function normally and the ageing process will resume.

Are there any side-effects?

The treatment is usually purchased by the vial or patients might be charged per area injected. As far as side effects go, if the wrinkle treatment is used correctly then it is considered a safe and effective procedure and side effects are generally only minor and may not occur at all. Occasionally some light bruising or redness might occur in the area of the injection but this should subside quickly. Sometimes patients may have difficulty in swallowing, speaking and breathing because of the muscles used in performing these things may become too relaxed, this requires immediate medical attention, but is rare if your practitioner has used the correct dosage. In rare cases an allergic reaction is possible and patients should seek immediate medical attention if symptoms of and allergic reaction occur. These may include difficulty breathing, swelling and a rash. As with any drug, there are side effects that can occur and this list is not exhaustive. To find out more about dermal fillers side effects, consult your doctor or pharmacist.
However, these side effects are rare and are associated risks of any treatment or procedure, many patients have it in their lunch hour and return to work immediately afterwards! The effects on the muscles become apparent within a few hours, however the main effects will appear after about a week.

How Quickly Does it Work?

Dermal fillers are administered by diluting the powder in saline (sodium chloride) and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue. It takes 24-72 hours for dermal fillers to take effect, which reflects the time needed for the toxin to disrupt the synaptosomal process. In very rare circumstances, it may take as long as 5 days for the full effect of botulinum toxin to be observed.
