Botox for sweating in men is one of the newer forms of cosmetic surgery, which is practiced in today’s society. Cosmetic botox is relatively new compared to other facial cosmetic surgeries such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, chin surgery, nasal reconstruction and lip enhancement. Unlike these procedures, botox is minimally invasive and non surgical. Cosmetic botox is a relatively short procedure with no recovery time. More and more people are turning to botox because it has quick results, which last a decent amount of time. So what is botox and why has it become the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure preformed by plastic surgeons?
Typically, nerve cells release chemicals which cause the muscles to tighten, leading to frown lines and wrinkles but Botox blocks these chemical signals causing a slight weakening of the muscles contraction and a smoothing of the skin’s appearance. Contrary to popular belief, skilfully applied Botox does not paralyze the facial muscles completely; it just relaxes and reduces their response which reduces any severe facial lines.
A course of Botox injections is an incredibly safe procedure, with minimal side effects. You may experience slight bruising and tightness after the treatment but this subsides leaving you with beautiful line free skin. There are, however, some groups of people who should not use Botox. These include pregnant and breastfeeding women and anyone suffering from a disease that affects the nerves or muscles. Certain medicines can react with Botox and you should consult your doctor if you are taking antibiotics before you undergo any Botox treatment.
These treatments are usually done in the office of a plastic surgeon, physician or a Doctor of Osteopathy. In some cases they may be done in an aesthetics clinic. If you choose to have your treatment done at one of these facilities, make sure the person who is administering the Botox has his or her Botox certification and is working under the supervision of a physician. If you want to be totally safe, have your Botox treatments done by plastic surgeon. He or she will be much more experienced in working with your facial muscles than a physician’s assistant or nurse practitioner who was certified after several days of training.
If you are a physician and are interested in Botox certification but unsure where to go for training – or where to send your people – you might contact your state medical association and ask for recommendations. You could contact the American Society of Plastic Surgeons for information or you could try your state medical school.
Until a few years ago getting Botox certified was difficult to achieve. While Botox certification is now widely available, you need to make sure you choose the right program to learn the skills needed to deliver exceptional treatment. There are online certification courses available, but research them to ensure you get the information and hands-on experience you need to safely perform this kind of medical treatment.
