What is Hair Botox? The idea behind this anti-hair loss treatment is that it slows down the growth of your hair. It does this by temporarily paralyzing your follicles, causing them to die off, but allow hair to grow again when you resume your normal activities. Sounds good right?
If you ask people about their experiences with this kind of treatment, they will almost all give you similar accounts of using it to stop or even reverse hair loss. Many people find relief from this treatment that they have become more likely to share with others, but how do you know if it works? You need to be cautious because there are a lot of frauds out there and they can deceive you into thinking the treatment is effective.
Since it is generally used to stop hair loss and to reverse the process, one may think this product will be effective. But what you may not know is that there are several side effects associated with it. These side effects could be severe and some may cause death.
First of all there are the side effects associated with being injected with this substance. Even though you may feel totally fine after having had the injection for several days, it could take up to two weeks for your body to fully recover from it. One example of these side effects is an allergic reaction.
This reaction is considered a serious health issue. It is usually associated with respiratory failure and will often be fatal. This should not be taken lightly because you may end up in a hospital bed with tubes coming out of your nostrils and in some cases even be put on a respirator.
Another side effect is that there could be permanent damage to the nerves in your scalp. It is common for those who are prescribed botox to use heat to promote hair growth in the area affected by the treatment. This might work on a short term basis, but it could also cause permanent damage to the nerves in your scalp.
And there is still another side effect that you may not be aware of but that is causing a great deal of concern among hair loss sufferers. It is called the aqueous plugging and occurs when the solution is left too long in your skin. This will actually make your hair fall out faster because you will have no hair.
These are just a few of the issues with this hair loss treatment. There are hundreds of side effects you could experience and one of the most common is an allergic reaction.
