What is Botox?
Botox is a shortened form of botulinum toxin and this is a neurotoxic protein that is commonly used in the field of medicine. When this protein is introduced into the body, it is able to inhibit the release of neurotransmitters, which causes a temporary paralysis. These injections are most commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
How Botox Treatment works?
Before you decide that you want to get Botox treatment in Bangalore, it is important that you first understand how it works. These injections are most commonly administered to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, mainly on the face. When the protein in the Botox affects the muscles, it causes a temporary paralysis. When the facial muscles relax, the lines and wrinkles relax too and you have smoother and tighter skin. It is important to remember that the effects of Botox will not last forever; in the best case scenario, it should last a few months, post which the paralysis will fade away and the lines will start to return.
Benefits of Botox Treatment
Botox has been hailed as one of the most effective anti wrinkle treatments globally and has won the approvals of all the important boards, including the FDA. There are a fair few benefits of getting these injections:
This is a minimally invasive procedure, which means that apart from a few pin pricks there is nothing to worry about.
It can be considered a lunch time procedure, which means that you need no invest too much time.
You will be able to see the results in a matter of hours and they will last you a few months at the least.
Botox injections can also be used to treat other conditions such as excessive sweating, lazy eye and chronic migraines.
Botox Treatment Cost in Bangalore
It is but natural to think about how much a Botox treatment cost will be but the fact is that it is not often a flat rate. There are several factors that will influence your final billing amount.
The clinic you choose will have a large role to play in this – it would be wise though to choose a reputed and licensed clinic for the best experience.
The experience and expertise of the doctor or cosmetologist administering the injections will matter.
The number of injections you are getting is also an important consideration – the more shots, the more the bill
In case you are getting the Botox shots for any other medical conditions, it could cost you differently.
Areas Treated with Botox Injection
While most people are of the opinion that Botox is used only to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face, the fact is that Botox treatment uses exceed the same. Yes, the most popular use of Botox is to decrease the wrinkles and lines on the face – mainly around the eyes, on the forehead, around the cheek and chin, however, there are other uses too.

Preparing for Botox Treatment
If you are getting Botox treatment for wrinkles, then there is not much that you will need to do in preparation. Here are just some of the dos and don’ts that you might be suggested:
You will be asked to avoid too much exposure to direct sunlight for a few days before the injections
You might be asked to avoid smoking and drinking at least 24-48 hours prior
Your skin will be cleaned thoroughly before the injections are administered
Although these injections are virtually painless, you can ask for a numbing gel
During Botox Procedure
Now that your skin is prepped for the injections, your dermatologist might use a pen to mark the areas where the injections need to be administered. The more experienced professionals are able to do this by sight, because they are able to locate the regions visually with absolute perfection. Using micro-needles, the injections will be administered in all the demarcated areas and a cotton swab will be used to immediately clean up any blood or residual Botox. The entire procedure should not take more than 20-35 minutes.
Recovery after Botox Treatment
Provided you have gotten your Botox injection in Bangalore from a reputed and licensed clinic, you should have a reasonably easy recovery. In most cases, people are able to return to their normal routine, immediately after the injections. There could be a little redness, tenderness and swelling at the injection site, but these should subside on their own by the next day. You can use an ice pack to help with the same or you could ask for medicated cooling gels.
Possible Risks & Side Effects of Botox Treatment

You could notice a slight redness or bruising on your skin, where the injections were administered.
The skin could feel tender to touch for a while.
A little bit of crusting might also be observed, but this should fall off on its own.
In the worst case scenarios, the injections could lead to blood clots.
Why AK Clinics for Botox Treatment in Bangalore?
Even though anti-aging treatments have become extremely commonplace it is important that you choose a reputable and licensed clinic for your treatment. Botox and dermal fillers might seem simple procedures on paper but their administration has to be done properly or there could be serious side effects.
At AK clinics you will have access to extremely qualified and experienced doctors and cosmetologists
There are two ways of getting rid of wrinkles – you can either take really good care of your skin from the very beginning or you can consider derma fillers or Botox to fill in the wrinkles, as and when they start to appear. There are also several over the counter creams and lotions that can help with early wrinkles.
Just because you have wrinkles or fine lines does not automatically qualify you for Botox injections – there are some factors that will be considered first. You need to be in good health, you should not have any neuromuscular conditions, you should ideally be 18 years and above, you should not be pregnant and you should not be lactating.
In most cases, the effects of the Botox shot should last you around three to six months, because after that time, the muscles will start returning to their normal nature and wrinkles might start appearing again. At such a times, you will have to go back for repeat injections.
The injections are administered with micro-needles, which are really fine – all you will feel is a pin prick and most people speak about the procedure being virtually painless. However, if you are worried about even that pin prick, you can always ask for a numbing gel to be applied in advance.
While most people are of the opinion that Botox is meant only to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, there are actually other uses. The use of Botox injections is also done to treat excessive sweating, chronic migraines, lazy eye and also chronic neck spasms. There have also been uses of Botox to treat an overactive bladder.
Because a really fine needle is used to administer the injections, there is no real bleeding as such; however, there could be a drop or two when the needle is inserted and taken out. Apart from this, there will be no continuous bleeding, especially if the procedure has been done by someone with immense experience.
There are several reasons why you should choose a reputed clinic; first and foremost being that you will get the best Botox treatment possible. This means that you will get to have the procedure done by experienced doctors, with the highest grade Botox and of course a truly comfortable session.
In general, Botox is safe for everyone, but in case the Botox has been injected into the wrong parts of the face or if the administration has not been properly, there could be side effects. One such side effect could be your eyebrows losing hair.
When you get your first Botox injection, it will last you anywhere between 3 to 6 months, post which your muscles will start to relax again and the wrinkles will start to appear again. You will need to get your Botox shots every 5-6 months or as your doctor suggests.
Hair Botox is actually a non-chemical treatment that is meant to deep condition your hair, by coating your hair completely. The treatment is meant to nourish your hair, make it more thick and lustrous. This treatment is suggested to people who have dull or dry hair, split ends, frizzy hair or want their hair to be stronger generally.
When you choose a reputed clinic for your Botox treatment, one of the things that you can ask to be shown are before and after pictures, because they will maintain the same for every treatment they offer. At AK Clinics, you can most certainly ask to be shown before and after pictures to see how it works.
In most cases, wrinkles happen because of age – when you start to age, the collagen in the body starts to reduce and your skin starts to lose its elasticity. Other common causes include smoking excessively, repeating the same facial expressions over and over again and exposing your skin to ultraviolet rays of the sun over a long period of time.
