Botox is a form of cosmetic injection and an effective treatment option that can help people look and feel more confident in their own skin. It is an injection made from a purified botulinum toxin type A and it can be used to numb the nerves in areas of your face, resulting in the reduction of wrinkles, fine lines and other similar signs of ageing. In this article, we will look at what Botox is, how it works, who is a suitable candidate for it, the potential side effects and more – helping you to make an informed decision about whether it is the right procedure for you. Dr. Faizan Kalekhan of Kanhangad Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics will give you a full consultation and explain all the details.
Botox is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face that are caused by aging, sun damage, and loss of facial volume. This can restore your youthful and vibrant look. Additionally, Botox is often used to treat medical conditions such as excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis). During a Botox consultation with Dr. Faizan Kalekhan, they will discuss with you the areas that will benefit from a Botox injection and provide a tailored plan. It is recommended to book regular Botox appointment sessions every 4-6 months to maintain your desired results and keep up on regular touch-ups.
Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on the face. This can leave the face looking smoother and more youthful in appearance. The procedure involves the injection of a purified botulinum toxin type A into areas where wrinkles are present. This blocks the nerve signal that is responsible for the contraction of the facial muscles, resulting in relaxation of the muscles. This then softens the wrinkles on the face and can create a firmer, smoother complexion. The results of Botox can often last anywhere between 3 and 6 months. The effects of Botox have been deemed safe but it is possible to experience some side effects, which will be discussed below.
To be a suitable candidate for a Botox injection, you must be in overall good health and not suffer from any facial skin conditions. Additionally, if you have any allergies to drugs, including Botox, then you will not be suitable for this treatment. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is not advisable to undergo a Botox injection, as it is not yet known whether it is safe for the baby. Dr. Faizan Kalekhan of Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics Kanhangad is an experienced consultant who will be able to properly assess and determine your suitability for the procedure and provide you with tailored advice.
Botox can be used to treat a variety of areas of the face. It can be used for wrinkles and lines on the forehead, frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes and wrinkles around the mouth. This means that Botox injections can be a suitable way to reduce aging signs around the top-half of the face. It is not suitable for treating wrinkles around the neck area. A cosmetic surgeon such as Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics’s Dr. Faizan Kalekhan in Kanhangad can give you an accurate indication of which areas of your face would benefit from a Botox injection during your initial consultation.
The procedure begins with a consultation with Dr. Faizan Kalekhan, who will make a thorough assessment of the area of the face that you would like to be treated by Botox injections. During this consultation, they will discuss with you the areas of your face that can benefit from the injection and the risks and side effects that are associated with the treatment. Once you have consented, the procedure is then carried out. The injections usually take a few minutes and no anesthesia is usually required. You may experience some discomfort during the injection process, depending on the areas being treated. Immediately after the injection, there is often some slight redness, swelling or bruising. This usually goes away after a few hours and you can return to your normal activities.
The results of Botox can take up to 5-7 days to become visible and can last between 3-5 months, although this may vary depending on your particular case. However, with regular treatments every 4-6 months, you can potentially enjoy the results for a longer period of time. The results of Botox should be gradual and natural, and patients should not expect to look as if they have had extensive work done on their face. Some results may not even be perceptible by others, but will still visibly improve the look and feel of the face.
Although Botox injections are considered to be generally safe, there is the potential to experience some side effects from treatment. These include: mild bruising, swelling, tenderness or pain at the injection site, redness, headache, nausea, double vision, eyelid swelling and drooping, and muscle weakness. These effects should resolve within a few hours to days and are usually not serious. However, in rare cases, it is possible to experience an infection or allergic reaction from the Botox injection. This is why it is important to choose an experienced and qualified medical professional such as Dr. Faizan Kalekhan of Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics Kanhangad for your procedure.
The effects of Botox usually last between 3-5 months, depending on your individual case and lifestyle. After this period of time, the Botox will naturally wear off and the wrinkles and lines will start to return. It is recommended to have regular Botox appointments every 4-6 months to maintain results. Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics Kanhangad’s Dr. Faizan Kalekhan can provide personalized advice for you during your consultation.
After your appointment, there is generally no downtime or recovery period required. This means that you can return to your daily activities right away, although you should try to take it easy and avoid strenuous activity where possible. After the injection, you may experience swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. As mentioned above, this should resolve within a few days. If you have any questions about the Botox procedure, then Dr. Faizan Kalekhan of Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics Kanhangad will be able to provide advice.
Botox can be combined with other cosmetic procedures such as dermal fillers, in order to create a more comprehensive and effective treatment.

Dr. Faizan Kalekhan of Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics Kanhangad, will be able to discuss with you which other cosmetic procedures may be suitable for you and how they can be combined with Botox in order to achieve optimal results.
