What Is Botox?

The name Botox is actually the name of the brand that creates Botox injectable liquids. The liquid is produced from Clostridium botulinum, an organism found in the natural environment where it is largely inactive and non-toxic.

Dr Siddharth Sakhiya, Board-certified Plastic, Cosmetic and Hair Transplant Surgeon, elaborates that Botox is a neurotoxin, which when used in the right quantity can relax facial muscles.

Essentially Botox stops the signal sent by the brain to the muscles, which means the muscles don’t move. The temporary pause in the movement of the muscles leads to a pause in the creation of wrinkles.

When Botox stops the muscles from developing wrinkles it makes the appearance of the face younger and smoother. Patients at Celebre Aesthetics, Surat who get Botox treatments often say that their skin even grows softer post-treatment.

It is important to note that Botox is an ideal treatment for dynamic wrinkles and not static wrinkles. At Celebre Aesthetics, Surat, Dr Siddharth Sakhiya always explain the difference between static and dynamic wrinkles to patients before the treatment.

Dynamic wrinkles are those formed by facial movements, such as squinting (think crow’s feet), smiling (think smile lines) and furrowing of the brow (think forehead wrinkles and frown lines). Botox is a quick, safe and effective solution for these wrinkles.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Botox?

Botox treatments are minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed at Celebre Aesthetics, Surat by expert Cosmetic Surgeon Dr Siddharth Sakhiya. The following are the list of requirements to be an ideal candidate for Botox at our clinic:

  1. An individual who has noticed dynamic wrinkles (which become visible on facial movements) forming on their face and wishes to treat them.
  2. An adult who is physically fit or in overall good health condition.
  3. An individual who has realistic expectations from the procedure.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not an ideal candidate for this procedure. Also, a person with a medical history of neurological conditions is not allowed to get a Botox treatment.

Please note, that your face at the time of the procedure needs to be free from any infection. In case you have a skin infection, Dr Sakhiya will ask you to postpone the treatment until you are free from the infection.

Additionally, this is a gender-neutral procedure and hence the same protocol will be followed for a male or female patient.

What To Expect At The Consultation With Dr Siddharth Sakhiya?

Dr Siddharth Sakhiya’s one-on-one consultations are deep, detailed discussions where he asks the patient about their expectations, desires, goals, understands their medical history and explains the procedure and risks to them.

You will be asked to show the problem areas (in your opinion) on your face – for example: fine lines near the eyes, smile/frown lines etc. Pictures of your face will be taken from multiple angles as part of your case history.

Our consultations also involve noting down your medical history and any allergies that might affect the cosmetic procedure. We end the consultation only after the patient and Dr Siddharth Sakhiya are on the same page and there are no doubts in the mind of the patient.

What To Expect Before The Procedure?

Dr Siddharth Sakhiya will need to know the entirety of the medical history in order to carry out the process smoothly and without any complications. Any impending allergies must also be informed before the procedure. Also, the doctor will click a few pictures to analyze the difference in the result after the process is complete. As the procedure is quite simple, minimally invasive and does not require any specific tests before, it can be performed immediately after the consultation itself.

How Is Botox Administered At Celebre Aesthetics?

Botulinum toxin is administered by diluting the powder in saline and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue. The procedure is virtually painless and comfortable. Dr Siddharth Sakhiya, the Board-certified Plastic, Cosmetic and Hair Transplant Surgeon of Celebre Aesthetics performs this procedure extremely carefully ensuring patient safety and great results.

Following are the steps of the Botox Procedure:

  1. Dr Sakhiya first marks the sites wherever Botox needs to be injected.
  2. The area to be treated is cleaned properly.
  3. No anaesthesia is required for Botox as it is a minimally invasive procedure.
  4. The needles used for injecting Botulinum Toxin are thin and short, thus the pain is minimal.
  5. Utmost care is taken to inject the toxin gradually and accurately so as to avoid any damage to the underlying structure and to prevent any nerve damage.
  6. The amount of the injections depends upon the facial structure and the number of wrinkles that are being treated. It can take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to complete the procedure.
  7. The toxin takes up to 10 days to reflect the final result in its entirety.

What Is The Recovery Process Of Botox?

First off, Dr Siddharth Sakhiya will recommend icing the treatment area after the procedure. This will stop swelling and any pain you may experience.

You must avoid rubbing, massaging, or applying any pressure to the treated area. These actions can cause the Botox to spread to other areas of the body. This can negatively affect your results.

Apart from this, there are no other precautions that need to be taken. The patient can resume their normal activities within hours of the treatment.

An important point that patients should be aware of is that Botox is not permanently effective. It is only temporary and if the patient wishes to have an anti-ageing effect, he/she will have to undergo this treatment in recurring cycles.

What Are The Risks Associated With Botox Treatment?

As with every medical procedure, there are certain risks associated with botox treatments too. Please note that the risks are low and rarely observed in patients. Nevertheless, Dr Siddharth Sakhiya is of the opinion that as a patient, you need to be aware of the risks and safety issues that may arise due to this procedure.

Some of the possible risks due to botox injections are:

  • Minor bruising or discomfort may occur but should improve within a few days.

  • swelling or drooping in the eyelid area

  • tiredness

  • headache

  • neck pain

  • double vision

  • dry eyes

  • allergic reactions, such as rash, itching, or asthma symptoms

  • Migration and paralysis of an unwanted muscle – In rare cases, Botox may migrate from the forehead, which is the site of the injection and may paralyse a muscle that helps in lifting the eyelid. This may lead to a temporary drooping of the eyelid. This is not permanent. The eyes recover completely within a span of 2 months. Similarly, if Botox is injected too close to the lip depressors when treating the muscles near the lops, then the lip muscles may remain drooping for some time.

If you are wondering whether or not you are an ideal candidate for Botox treatment we invite you for a consultation with Dr Siddharth Sakhiya of Celebre Aesthetics in Surat, where he will provide you with his expert guidance and clear all your doubts!
