Botox is taken from a toxin that causes food poisoning. This sterilized,
injectable form of the toxin does on a small scale what the unsterilized toxin
did on large scale: it paralyzes muscles just under the skin preventing them from
contracting. The skin lying on top of these paralyzed muscles then smoothes out
and usually within a week the wrinkles that were there are gone.
For the best safety, a patient should neither sleep nor consume alcohol for several
hours prior to treatment and the injections should be done by a qualified, board
certified doctor under sterile conditions with sterile equipment as well as with
precautionary equipment on hand just in case there is an emergency.
Preparation for Botox Injection:
Stop supplements or pills such as aspirin, Motrin, Advil, Vioxx, vitamin E,
quinine or fish oil two weeks before the procedure can affect bleeding or bruising.
Dr. Fredric Barr, a West Palm Beach plastic surgeon, president of the Palm
Beach County Plastic Surgery Society, says people undergoing Botox should
prepare the same way they would for surgery.
