Botulinium Beyond Wrinkles

One of the biggest misconceptions about Botulinum toxin is that it can be used only to erase wrinkles. Leading dermatologist and skin surgeon, Dr Satish Bhatia, says that one must not dismisses Botulinum as a mere skin unwrinkler. “It’s gone way beyond that,” he declares, Think of facial contouring for instance. A square jaw is usually a mixed blessing, especially amongst Asians, which is developed through excessive gum or tobacco chewing or grinding one’s teeth. A small amount of Botulinum injected into the jaw muscle can result in a well- defined, slimmer jaw line with minimal discomfort. There are other options also available for this, like a reduction osteotomy. In this difficult procedure, says Dr Bhatia, the angle of the mouth is trimmed down by cutting the bone from inside the mouth. How about neck folds or turkey necklines? You could be in your 40s, be a smoker or you may have suffered sudden weight loss. A shot of Botulinum in the sagging neck muscles makes them stretch and lighten. Other procedures to treat the aging neck A model flas are radio frequency peralles or platysmal surgery. Hyperhidrosis is a common problem which makes sufferers apprehensive of greeting or mixing freely with others. Moreover, symptoms like body odour cause a lot of embarrassment, further restricting the sufferer’s social interaction. Botulinum can provide an easy, non- surgical solution for this problem. This toxin treatment blocks the sweat glands and the effect lasts upto 14 months. There are also other methods available like ‘iontophoresis’, where you ‘stun” the sweat glands into immobility with a controlled electric current. However, Botulinum treatment is by far the easiest and most convenient treatment option. This toxin can be used very effectively to correct asymmetry of the eyebrows if injected by an expert in the right places. Hate your wide nostrils? This is a recent development in which Botulinum toxin is injected into certain nose muscles that actually reduce the width of the nostrils, resulting in a slimmer, shapelier nose. Droopy lines around the mouth angles (called ‘marionette lines’) can also be treated with this. In India, Botulinum toxin was till now available only as Botox, but now another equiva- lent product called neuronox is also widely available making the therapy more accessible, afford- able and increasing treatment options for cosmetologists as well as patients wanting to experience the benefits of Botulinum toxin treatment.

I had severe Lachen Planus for the last 1 year and I got to know about Satish Sir. Thanks to him, his treatment has been really very smooth and effective so far. The medicines prescribed by him has worked apparently and I am looking forward to cure my disease very soon. More importantly, his behaviour is really kind and he listens to us patiently.

One of the most honest dermatologists I have ever met. He does not prescribe expensive and unnecessary medications and unnecessary blood test like some other dermatologist do , we need more dermatologists like him in Mumbai
