What is the generic Botox?
The generic Botox OnabotulinotoxinA is nothing more than the substance made up of the bacteria that cause botulism. The aforementioned pathology is in fact a serious food poisoning caused by toxins that the bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces naturally. The microorganism responsible for this intoxication penetrates the body through food, or spores are ingested accidentally or even from an open wound, but even those who undergo botulinum toxin injections may risk having this disease by overdose, incorrect dilution or wrong injection point. If untreated, botulism can lead to fatal consequences as it causes respiratory paralysis and asphyxiation. Symptoms are often similar to those of gastroenteritis, so if you use generic Botox, as well as branded Botox, it is good to be alert and catch the signs of infection.
For which treatments is it useful?
Botulinum toxin applications are innumerable from a medical and cosmetic point of view, as it has the function of blocking nerve activity in the muscles. Botox is also used in adults to treat cervical dystonia: this is severe spasms in the neck muscles or muscle stiffness in the elbows, wrists, fingers, ankles or toes. Botulinum toxin is used to treat specific neurological disorders, such as equine foot and spasticity in patients with walking pediatric cerebral palsy (two years and older); the disability of the wrist and hand causes spasticity of the upper limb associated with stroke in the ankle and disability of the foot of adults due to the spasticity of the lower limbs associated with stroke in adults symptomatic relief of blepharospasm, spasm and idiopathic cervical dystonia (spasmodic torticollis), headache in adults with chronic migraine (headache on at least 15 days a month of which at least 8 days are with migraine). Even those with bladder disorders can benefit from Botox, for example in the case of overactive bladder, urinary incontinence, anxiety and frequency of neurogenic hyperactivity with urinary incontinence due to multiple sclerosis or sub cervical lesions of the spinal cord, with or without trauma just a few sessions with a doctor experienced in botulinum toxin to solve the problem temporarily.
Difference between generic and branded
In fact, both in the case of generic Botox, and in the branded botox, the doctor will calibrate the amount of product to be used and above all how many injections cycles his patient will undergo. But why choose a generic product instead of the most famous ones and with the certainty that they have passed each test? The reason is very simple, practically generic Botox has the same active ingredient as botox signed and at the same time it offers greater privacy in case you do not want to let people know what type of product you have purchased. For example if you go to the pharmacy and request a well-known antipyretic drug and compare it with the equivalent one, at the same dosage, you will not notice any differences other than that of the unit cost. The methods of use, contraindications and side effects will be the same, as will dosages. For this reason, generic Botox is sought above all for the treatment of skin disorders of an aesthetic and non-aesthetic nature: think of the problem of sweating the armpits and hands when the various topical treatments have absolutely no effect; the aesthetic improvement of vertical lines, the so-called glabellar lines, or crow's feet or wrinkles present on the lips or forehead cause skin aging. Flattening facial lines has a noticeable psychological impact on the person, as you see improved in appearance and appreciated more than before.
The various dosages will be different according to the depth of wrinkles to be treated and neurological, urinary and other pathologies. Surely botulinum injections will be very well tolerated by those who cannot afford surgery or a facelift, with all the problems that result such as anaesthesia, convalescence and above all post-operation pains and scars. In the case of injections, you should not make efforts or lie down for the first 4 hours of the intervention such as doing sports, at least for the first 90 minutes. It can happen that you feel a slight discomfort at the point where the needle has penetrated, which will be normal within a few hours. The advantage is precisely to return to normal life very quickly.
What if it doesn't work?
It may happen that the treatment chosen to treat a certain pathology by Botox did not work, in which case evaluate whether the product has abnormalities at the time of preparation and dilution, to increase the injectable dose not exceeding the recommended one or to review the timing of interruption between cycles. If the problem persists, it is good to reconsider the general diagnostic framework, discontinue treatment with neurotoxin and evaluate other options.
