Hyderabad’s Dr. Harikiran Chekuri shares his views on Hair Botox treatment
Botox treatment is extremely useful in resolving multiple medical conditions, especially in cosmetology. For example, with ageing, hair on the head is likely to lose its fullness and elasticity, for which hair experts suggest hair Botox.
Dr Hari Kiran Chekuri of Redefine Hair Clinic, Hyderabad, explains in-depth hair Botox treatment and its recommendations. He states, ‘This treatment is called ‘Botox’ as it improves the hair and gives it a fuller and smoother look and feel. The effect is similar to when Botox is administered to the face and/or skin. Also, on botulinum toxin A (Botox) is not used in this treatment.
Further, he explains the hair Botox procedure in detail. Hair Botox treatment involves using keratin and other fillers to fill the thin or broken areas in each strand of hair. As a result, hair after Botox treatment will look fuller and more lustrous.
Treating surgeons refer to it as anti-ageing hair treatment as it can transform highly damaged hair into smooth and lustrous hair. Hair Botox is a deep hair conditioning treatment wherein 100% natural ingredients are applied to the hair. These ingredients provide vitamins, proteins, antioxidants and oils to the hair.
First, the patient’s hair is washed and dried thoroughly, lathered with a deep conditioning lotion or cream. Also, some doctors massage the hair from root to tips and wait for thirty minutes or ninety minutes. It depends upon them to rinse the lotion before using the flat iron, while some f them will leave the lotion on the hair to dry and straighten it for better results. Also, ample care should be taken to avoid the lotion contacting the skin.
After the treatment, the patient’s hair will become rejuvenated, hydrated and smooth. In addition, the hair becomes frizz-free and manageable for a longer duration. These results last for at least two to four months.
Hair treated with Botox treatment is suitable for people residing in hot and humid weather conditions or those who have used heat tools or artificial colours on their hair. It offers a shield of protection and makes them look smooth, well-treated and managed. Patients wash their hair or enjoy a swim immediately after the treatment. He proceeds to provide home care advice for patients who have taken hair Botox treatment.
However, he states that the home care of treated hair is very important. He suggests the steps of how to look after hair at home. First, he advises using a shampoo that does not contain sulfate, paraben and silicon. But the shampoo needs to be diluted with an equal quantity of water. The water activates the shampoo to work on the roots of the hair and nourish them. They can also apply a hair mask or opt for a conditioner to nurture the hair further. Also, while combing, the patients should gently remove the knots, tangles and snags and make the hair smooth and silky.
