All About Botox

Ever-growing demand for facial aesthetic treatments has precipitated the continual growth of the industry and the variety of available Botox preparations for rejuvenating healthy skin. Of the many Botox preparations on the market today, Allergan Botox is a popular option.

There are a few things medical professionals must be familiar with before being licensed to administer Allergan Botox. Here’s what you need to know.

Aesthetics and facial anatomy

There are 43 distinct muscles in the human face. The small size of these muscles, plus the blood vessels and nerves woven through, make the face a very complex anatomical structure. Thus, undertaking any procedures with Botox requires a solid understanding of the intricacy of facial anatomy.

Contraindications and risks / benefits

Like all medical treatments, procedures with Allergan can carry certain risks. Foremost among risk factors are allergies to botulinum toxin or related products; if a patient reports such an allergy, Allergan Botox is not for them. There are also some muscle and nerve conditions which preclude the effective and safe injection of Botox. Though patients who report problems with breathing can receive Botox treatments, any issue with respiration requires that patients be monitored for a longer period after a procedure.

Any good training course, like the ones on offer at Dentox, will go over contraindications in detail. Always ensure that patients are provided the opportunity to report any and all medical conditions as well as medications currently in use. Of particular importance, of course, is any history of surgery on the face; in which case, precautions and additional monitoring are prudent.

Allergan is safe to use, but training courses will go over all confirmed (but rare) risks such as: issues with bladder control, problems swallowing, breathing and talking and generalized muscle weakness and vision distortions caused by the over-spreading of the Botox. Procedures involving the eye muscles can also cause bleeding behind the eye and have negative effects on the cornea.

The identification and management of these potential and severe problems needs to be covered in-depth in any training course. The Dentox courses are good because they don’t only remind participants of the more commonly expected side-effects such as redness or swelling at injection sites.

Other Uses for Allergan Botox

Allergan can be used to treat other conditions, such as: (1) muscle spasms (especially in the neck and hands), (2) Blepharospasm – uncontrolled blinking, (3) Urinary incontinence, (4) Hyperhidrosis, (5) Strabismus – lack of coordination of the eye muscles, and (6) Chronic migraines.

A good training program will be led by a professional with current knowledge of effective applications of Botox. New uses of the product are discovered regularly through medical research, and each use necessitates a good understanding of the associated anatomy.

Legal

Always inform yourself of the regulations and guidelines for Botox injections in your state. You need to know the necessary conditions for specific procedures, as well as who may legally administer Botox. These rules vary by state.

The potential uses of Allergan are relatively broad (compared to other Botox products) and will require that medical professionals have an especially comprehensive knowledge of their state’s associated regulations.
