Botox, is it really safe?
Petit Plastic Surgery is a top trending non-invasive surgical method consisting of Botox and fillers. With comparatively short procedure times and recovery period than other invasive surgeries, it is much more compelling to clients. As a result, many foreigners on short trips to Korea receive these treatments for its simplistic reasons, and as such, the wary question of safety and effectiveness should be made clear.
Let's talk about the safety and effects of Botox in today's blog.
When you’re hesitant about the thought of scalpel incisions yet distressed about your complexion, the first thing that comes into mind is Botox & fillers. It seems as though a lot of people are very much misinformed or have raw knowledge on Botox and fillers. One of the many questions we get from our clients is “isn’t Botox just an injection?”
So, let’s discuss what Botox is exactly and how and where it is administered, shall we?
‘Botox’ is not a surgical “method”, it is the name of the product that contains neurotoxins made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum called ‘botulinum toxin type A’. Originally, Botox was used to treat spasm and consequently discovered that it smoothened wrinkles in the area. When Botox is injected, it temporarily blocks the nerves that contract the targeted muscles which softens the appearance of wrinkles. The name Botox has since then been referred to the treatment method, a type of petit plastic surgery.
Botox, where is ti normally administered?
Botox and fillers have slightly different areas where they can be administered. Usually the forehead, frown line, areas around the eye, and perioral regions near the mouth are areas that Botox is used on. And by diminishing the muscular activity around the jaw, square jawlines can be chiseled down. Furthermore, the size of upper trapezius, outer and inner thigh, calf, and back muscles can be diminished, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) and body odor can also be controlled.
Although this type of procedure is non-invasive, surely there must be a health and safety risk associated with the injection of Botox?
Due to the short procedure times and recovery period, a large number of clients flock to plastic surgeries, and those surgeries advertise marked down prices of Botox to naïve clients. It is important to know that if the prices seem unreasonably low, then you have to start to feel suspicious about the products they use, since a lot of those clinics use fake or expired products. For the sake of your safety, we do not recommend you to get the procedure done by anyone but a specialist doctor, and recommend you to check the batch number and expire date, and the right product to be opened in front of you.
Finally, the full effects of Botox can vary between different body parts and muscles. For instance, you will be able to see results within 1-2 weeks for 3 months for facial muscles and jawline, whereas larger muscle groups will take 3-8 weeks to see any results and can last up to 3-6 months.
Botox is comparatively simple and quick compared to invasive incisional surgeries. As long as you do your research on the products and follow precautionary measures as mentioned above, you’ll feel much safer and satisfied with the effects of Botox.
