How Botox works
Botox is administered by diluting the powder in saline and injecting directly into neuromuscular tissue. Around 12-20 injections are given in the vertical lines between the eyebrows and the crow’s feet wrinkles around the patient’s eyes. The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes.
The jab of Botox works by blocking the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, the chemical messenger that tells muscles to contract. Over time, the nerves gradually rebuild the ability to release the chemical messenger and the muscles eventually regain their ability to function. The effects of botulinum toxin injections last for between two and six months.
It is also sometimes injected into the neck, the jaw and the armpits to treat excessive sweating.
What can go wrong?
Despite its increasing popularity, there have been a rising number of instances where a Botox treatment has gone wrong, leaving the patient in significant distress.
In most cases, the injections work perfectly well and the desired outcome is achieved for the cosmetic surgery patient. However, when a treatment goes wrong, serious difficulties can ensue for the victim.
Indications of negligent Botox injections can be severe and include:
- Facial disfigurement
- Difficulty breathing
- Difficulty eating
