Botox injections: a new way to lose weight

Botox is one of the main chemical used to give you a wrinkle free, evenly toned skin. For those of you, who are aware of this and only this purpose of this chemical, must read this article, as scientists have recently discovered a new way of utilizing Botox and adding to its benefits. They have found that when Botox is injected in your stomach, you actually do not feel hungry very often and this aids in the reduction of your weight. Known as the Endoscopic Gastric Botox, in Dubai, it is becoming one of the most popular non-surgical weight loss procedure. Let us take a look at a few things that should be known before undertaking this procedure.

Endoscopic Gastric Botox

What it is and how does it work?

In the procedure of Endoscopic Gastric Botox in Dubai, Botox (botulinum toxin that is used to smooth facial wrinkles) is injected inside your stomach by a gastroenterologist using an endoscope. The endoscope carrying the Botox is guided to your stomach through the mouth. The chemical relaxes the stomach muscles and blocks the nerve (the vagus nerve to be exact) that controls your hunger. Eventually, you feel full quickly and satiated for a longer time. And because the food consumption reduces after the procedure, you lose quite enough of weight.  

How long does it take to be done and recover?

The procedure happens to be performed on an outpatient basis. Since the entire procedure is endoscopically performed, it takes around 15 to 20 minutes to be completed. You can go home after taking the Endoscopic Gastric Botox in a Dubai clinic and go home immediately after it. The further benefit of this treatment is that you can resume your daily activities the very next day of the treatment. This is a quick procedure for weight loss and you can see weight loss results within 10 days or a week.

Is it safe?

The Botox injection is a great option for all those who want to lose 10 to 30 pounds. Although once injected, its effect lasts for three to six months, but the procedure can be repeated if needed. It is safe and can only possibly cause a mild sore throat as an effect of endoscopy.
