More and more people are researching how to achieve healthy skin once they’ve reached a certain age or if their skin ages faster than most. The cosmetic industry has been booming due to this and it’s no surprise; Botox has been a less invasive option for those looking to restore their skin and appear younger.
As of now there have been developments of several different Botox preparations on the market, but the Allergan Botox has been one of the most preferred thus far. While you shouldn’t administer Botox injections without proper training and certification, once you’re able to do so, we’ve compiled a list of things every practitioner should know before they administer Allergan botox.
The way Botox works, which most are familiar with, is through injection of the muscles located just underneath the skin. These injections can help with relaxing muscles and decreasing the appearance of unwanted wrinkles. The face’s anatomy is actually quite complex as it includes 43 distinct muscles, not to mention the many blood vessels and nerves. You shouldn’t administer Botox if you aren’t familiar with facial anatomy and structure; otherwise you won’t achieve the ideal results.
Beyond Facial Aesthetics
There are many other uses for Allergan including chronic migraines, hyperhidrosis, muscle spasms, urinary incontinence and overactive bladder, cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, strabismus, and so many other new uses being discovered regularly. Of course, before you administer botox for these particular purposes, you will need to have an understanding of the area (body part, etc.) first.
Risks & Benefits
Allergan comes with risks like just about every kind of medical treatment so that is expected. However, a training course will teach you the benefits as well as the side effects and risks associated with Allergan. Not everyone should receive Botox injections such as those who have ever had an allergic reaction to other botulinum toxin products. A patient wanting Botox that has breathing problems will need extra monitoring after the injections.
While the side effects are typically minor and only temporary, it’s important that a patient understands them, as well as the one administering the injection. Such side effects include trouble talking, swallowing and even breathing, loss of bladder control (mostly for those receiving botox for issues with their bladder), the spread of toxin leading to blurred vision, hoarseness or generalized muscle weakness. Your training will include methods for managing any side effects or complications that may arise after an Allergan Botox injection.
