Is There Such A Thing As A Botox Reversal?

Since the FDA approved its use for non-surgical cosmetic anti-aging wrinkle correction in the USA, over 11 million patients have benefited from the proven results of Botox. Results are noticeable almost immediately and recovery time is pretty much non-existent. There are no post-surgical complications to fix and you can go back to work or home commitments immediately.

Botox dermal injections use a purified protein form of the botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze small muscles in the face. It has been used successfully to treat crow’s feet and wrinkles, enlarged prostates, excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), migraine headaches, and muscle spasms. Considered very safe, the side effect profile of botulinum toxin used for cosmetic purposes is very minimal. Occasionally, temporary side effects may appear with a week of treatment and subside within days. These may include headache, redness or rash at the injection site, facial muscle drooping, flu-like symptoms, respiratory infections, or itching and numbness.

In very rare circumstances, patients may be unhappy with the outcome of their treatment and desire reversal. This is often due to practitioner inexperience or incorrect choice of location for the injection. Treatment results vary depending on the experience of the practitioner delivering the injection and site of administration. Be sure to consult an experienced specialist or doctor in your area if you are considering this type of anti-aging cosmetic treatment. They will be able to thoroughly review your desires and expectations, while informing you of the realistic results that can be achieved with your current skin condition and genetic makeup.

It is important to do as much research as possible before the procedure because there is no antidote or reversal for Botox. The botulinum toxin works on the acetylcholine neurotransmitter at neuromuscular junctions and temporarily paralyzes them. The paralysis wears off as the body clears the toxin and refreshes acetylcholine stores. However, this can take months and full remission may only occur 6 months after the injection. As such, it is important to determine if Botox is right for you and fits with your anti-aging needs.

Millions of patients and their doctors have chosen Botox for their cosmetic enhancement needs. Whether you think the frown lines between your eyebrows make you look unapproachable or are worried that your forehead creases are unnecessarily aging your face, consult a specialist in your area to see if this dermal injection is right for you.
