Inhibition of excessive bladder activity

How do Botox injections work?
Botox injections prevent excessive nerve signals and muscle contraction temporarily. This reduces the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows.

If the patient is concerned about pain or discomfort, local anesthesia or ice can numb the treatment area.
During the procedure, the doctor will use a thin needle to administer 3-5 botulinum-type injections where he will inject the target area between the eyebrows. The patient will usually need three injections on the side of each eye to soften the crow’s feet. The entire procedure takes about 10 minutes.

Minor bruising or discomfort may occur, but it should improve within a few days. Other side effects may include:
- swelling in the eyelid area
- Feeling tired
- Neck pain
- Dry eyes

What happens after Botox?
Avoid rubbing, massage or exerting any pressure on the treated area. These procedures can cause Botox to spread to other areas of the body and can adversely affect the results of the operation. When injecting between the eyebrows, do not lie down or bend for three to four hours. Doing so may cause Botox to fall below the orbital edge, leading to drooping eyelids.
Botox therapy does not need a break after that because this procedure is very simple as those who have undergone Botox treatment can exercise their daily life normally.
It is important to understand possible improvements and realistic expectations. Noticeable results can be expected within 1-2 days after treatment. The full effect of Botox usually lasts up to four months. It can also help prevent the return of fine lines by relaxing muscles. Additional Botox injections can also be given to maintain the quality of the results.
