Most Popular Allergan Botox Training

The field of cosmetic surgery is expanding to include new technology and non-invasive procedures. Botox treatments can smooth out lines and reverse the signs of aging. The new procedures are good options for people who want to retain the natural look and opt for subtle changes over time.

Several types of botulinum toxin preparations are being developed and marketed under different brand names. Allergan botox is among the most favored applications. In order to use this particular product, there is required training and certification for healthcare professionals before being licensed to administer it. Here are just a few things to know before considering to administer botox.

Facial Anatomy and Muscle Structure

Allergan Botox reduces the appearance of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles in that area of the face. The muscle structure of the face is complex with over 43 muscles in the face alone, and there are nerves and blood vessels to consider when using injectable products. Having knowledge of the facial structure and muscle placement is crucial for accurate administration and to get the best results.

Other Uses for Botox

Besides being an aesthetic application for wrinkles, Botox has been used for many other applications such as:

● Excessive sweating
● Overactive bladder or incontinence
● Muscle spasms in the hands
● Muscle spasms in the neck
● Weak eye muscles
● Uncontrollable blinking
● Chronic migraines of 15 or more days out of the month

For Botox administration outside of wrinkle reduction, you should have an advanced understanding of the facial structure and muscle composition. Anatomy of the muscle structure should be taught as well since Botox and similar applications are being approved for new uses making them even more versatile.

Benefits, Risks, and Contraindications

Patients should tell their doctor of any medications they are taking, before requesting Botox treatments as additional precautions may be necessary. Medical treatment of any type carries some risks, and Allergan also has the potential for some side effects.

Botox is considered safe for most patients, but not for all patients. People who have had an allergic reaction to Botox in the past should avoid this type of treatment. Patients with breathing conditions can receive botox but will require extended monitoring after the procedure.

Side effects are often temporary and may include swelling or redness but it should go away within a short time. Allergan Botox is considered to be safe, but does have some risks of side effects including:

● Problems speaking, swallowing or even breathing
● Generalized muscle weakness, blurred or double vision, loss of voice
● Bleeding behind the eye muscles
● Inability to empty the bladder, especially in those who receive botox for bladder issues

The training program doesn’t stop at just explaining the risks. It should discuss complications and how to best manage treatment application to minimize the risk and ensure the best possible outcome for the patient.
