Botox Treatment in Vasundhara - Twachaaclinic
Botox

BOTOX has been the most miraculous discovery in field of anti-ageing. It is a non-surgical, doctor-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth out moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet and a lined neck amongst other areas. It is an FDA approved treatment.

When injected by an expert dermatologist, BOTOX ensures the results are as natural looking as possible. The treatment involves no downtime and depending on the size of the area treated, results become visible in 3-7 days and results last for 4-6 months or longer.

How does botox work?
Botulinum Toxin is a natural, purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles & creates a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance It involves injecting small amounts of Botox into the facial or neck muscles responsible for movement associated with wrinkling. The injection relaxes the muscle, thus reducing the associated lines and wrinkles.

How long do results last?
The effects of Botox can last up to 4-6 months.

How often should you get botox after your first injection? How many times can you have botox?
As soon as your wrinkles return, you can have Botox again. There is no defined limit to the number of injections one can have.

How safe are wrinkle-relaxing injections?
Botox is very safe when injected by experienced physicians.

Is there a rebound effect when Botox wears off and one does not go for repeat injections?
No, the muscle activity should return to its original state when the Botox wears OFF.

Is botox painful?
Botox, itself, is not painful. The pain is associated with the needlestick. The smaller the needle, the better it is tolerated. When a volume of fluid is injected under the skin, it temporarily stimulates some of the nerve fibers. Everyone’s threshold for these occurrences differs from person to person.

How many botox treatments are needed before you see results?
When injected appropriately, the results will be seen after the first treatment. Botox takes two to four days before the muscle weakening effect takes place. The maximum effect occurs at about 10 to 14 days.

What is the healing period and aftercare?
There is typically no “healing period and aftercare. We, at twachaa,suggests that the areas of injection should not be rubbed or manipulated for a few hours after the injections.

Is it true that the more I have Botox, the less I need to use it?
Muscles that are not used tend to atrophy and weaken over time. Muscles that have been continually injected with Botox may actually fall into this category and produce a similar effect. This might result in using less Botox.

Which areas of the face can you get botox? And can it be used on the body?
The most common areas of the face that are injected with Botox are the frown lines between the eyebrows, the forehead wrinkles and the crow’s feet. It can be injected into any muscle in the face.

What else would you recommend instead of botox for a deep line between my eyebrows that makes me look very tired and unhappy,and also lines around my mouth?
Lines that are not helped by Botox can frequently be filled with dermal fillers. These substances are injected under the wrinkle to alleviate the line and smooth the surface. Their effects, depending on which filler is used, can last six to eight months and longer.

Will I have a frozen appearance after botox? I fear I won’t be able to move my forhead.
It all depends on where and how much Botox is injected. There are those persons who want their foreheads “frozen.” Your desired Botox effects should be discussed with your doctor prior to the injections. The “where and how much” can be individualized to your wishes.

What are the risks and complications of botox?
The main risks and complications of Botox are associated with weakening a muscle that was not intended to be injected. This can include a myriad of symptoms depending on which muscle was inadvertently.

Is botox toxic?
When used appropriately, Botox should not have a toxic effect on your general health, even after several treatments. The amount required to effectively reduce the wrinkles on your forehead is far below any toxic level of the drug.

Glaucoma Treatment In Ghatkopar, Mumbai From Glaucoma Specialist - Dr. Jatin Ashar
Glaucoma Treatment In Ghatkopar
Glaucoma is Cluster of eye diseases, resulting in optic nerve damage. Main function of optic nerve is to carry images from the retina, which is the specialized light sensing tissue, to the brain for interpretation so we can visualize it. In many cases, we do not know exactly what causes glaucoma. However, increased eye pressure is the most common risk factor for developing the disease. The pressure comes when the clear fluid in the eye, called the aqueous humor, does not drain properly.

This fluid normally helps to nourish the eye, and flows in and out of the eye through a mesh-like channel. In people with high eye pressure, the fluid does not drain properly and pressure builds up in the eye.

Due to this eye pressure delicate nerve fibers of the optic nerve are damaged. Once these nerve fibers are damaged, blind spots develop in the field of vision. It’s a permanent loss, once nerve damage and visual loss occur. Most people don't notice these blind areas until much of the optic nerve damage has already occurred. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the world, especially in older people.

What are symptoms of Glaucoma?
Open-angle glaucoma is asymptomatic. It develops slowly and sometimes without noticeable sight loss for many years. Most people who have open-angle glaucoma feel fine because the initial loss of vision is of side or peripheral vision, and the visual acuity or sharpness of vision is maintained.

As open-angle glaucoma has few warning signs or symptoms before damage has occurred, it is recommended to see a doctor for regular eye examinations. In open-angle glaucoma, the angles in your eye are normal, but the eye’s drainage canals become clogged over time, causing an increase in internal eye pressure and subsequent damage to the optic nerve.

In Angle-closure glaucoma (also called narrow angle glaucoma) the angle is closed, causing increased eye pressure, which leads to optic nerve damage, and possible vision loss. There is an acute attack of angle closure leading to noticeable symptoms and damage occurs quickly. If you experience any of these symptoms, seek immediate care from an ophthalmologist.

Hazy or blurred vision
The appearance of rainbow-colored circles around bright lights
Severe eye and head pain
Sudden vision loss
Nausea or vomiting (accompanying severe eye pain)
Congenital glaucoma is glaucoma occurring in children, whether from birth or at a very early age. This usually happens from a physical defect in the eye that doesn’t allow it to function normally, but it can also come from some other medical issue.

Pigmentary glaucoma, or pigment dispersion, blocks the drain of your eye with tiny granules of the eye’s pigment, or the iris, after circulating through the fluid at the front of your eye.

Secondary glaucoma – Glaucoma with associated conditions like tumor, diabetes, an advanced cataract, or inflammation.
