What Is


Botulinum Toxin Type A (Botox) is a neurotoxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. It helps to temporarily get rid of the wrinkles and the fine lines that appear on the face gradually with age. Botox is an excellent choice to correct dynamic wrinkles which develop overtime on the face due to expression of various emotions like smiling (smile lines), frowning (frown lines), squinting of eyes (crow’s feet), etc. It is a simple, low downtime and risk free solution to such problems.

How Does

Botox Work?

Botox is injected in very small quantities wherever one finds wrinkles and fine lines. After injected into the specific muscle, the nerve signal to that particular muscle is blocked thus halting the formation of wrinkles in that particular area.

This muscle is thus temporarily paralyzed; relaxing it. As the formation of wrinkles is paused, it helps to restore a youthful look to the face.

Although Botox is primarily used for wrinkles and fine lines, it can also be used to treat other medical issues like lazy eye, cervical dystonia, reducing muscle spasticity, hyperhidrosis, etc.

Dr Santosh Bhatia has expertly guided various patients on administration of Botox whenever they visit the clinic for the process. He believes that one on one consultations is absolutely necessary to build up the trust and understand the desires of the patient.

The Process Of Botox?

Dr Santosh Bhatia will need to know the entirety of the medical history in order to carry out the process smoothly and without any complications. Any impending allergies must also be informed before the procedure. 

Also, the doctor will click a few pictures to analyze the difference in result after the process is complete.

As the procedure is quite simple, minimally invasive and does not require any specific tests before, it can be performed immediately after the consultation itself.

How Is

Botox Administered At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic?

  • Markings are first made wherever Botox needs to be injected.
  • The area to be treated is cleansed first. Anaesthesia is not required for Botox as it is a minimally invasive procedure.
  • The needles used for injecting Botulinum Toxin are thin and short, thus the pain is minimal.
  • Utmost care is taken to inject the toxin properly so as to avoid any damage to underlying structure and to prevent any nerve damage.
  • The amount of the injections highly depends upon the facial structure and the amount of wrinkles that need to be treated. It can take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to complete the procedure.
  • The toxin takes upto 10 days to reflect its result completely.

How Is

The Recovery Process After Botox?

Step 1

The recovery after Botox is quite comfortable. The doctor will suggest ice application on the injection site so as to mellow down the bruising and avoid swelling.

Step 2

The doctor advises against applying any pressure or massaging the injected sites as it may cause the Botox to move and negatively affect the results.

Step 3

Patients can resume their daily activities after a few hours of the procedure.

Step 4

Generally, the results of Botox are not permanent. It requires a ‘touch-up’ after 3-6 months as its effects wear off.

  • Initially, after the surgery is performed, the doctor will keep the patient under observation to keep a watch on the recovery and vitals.
  • The breasts will be covered with a medical dressing and you might be advised to wear a support bra in order to retain the new shape of the breasts.
  • Small tubes might be placed in order to drain out any excess fluid that might form after the process. The doctor will remove the drains after a few days.
  • The stitches will be removed according to the doctor’s analysis of the healing procedure.
  • Pain medications might be prescribed in order to alleviate the pain that accompanies the process. These must be taken according to the doctor’s advice in order to be comfortable throughout the recovery.

Timely follow-ups must be taken with Dr Santosh Bhatia in order to ensure the recovery and the healing process are on the right track.

Risks Associated With Botox?

  • Muscle sensation may change for sometime.
  • Temporary drooping of facial features
  • Sensitive patients may experience dry mouth, headache, nausea and slight fever.
