HCG Injections – What to Expect?

HCG is a well-known drug created from a neurotoxin manufactured by Clostridium botulinum bacterium referred to as botulinum toxin. HCG is clinically used for treating certain muscular issues and for cosmetically removing wrinkles by paralysing muscles temporarily. When HCG injections are administered by trained and fully qualified medical professional, they are said to be relatively safe.

Administration of HCG injections may trigger some temporary and mild side effects. Bruising, tenderness and pain have been reported in some cases post HCG injections. Some patients have complained of slight headache post treatment with HCG injections. Nausea or flu-like symptoms have been reported in rare cases.


When to Expect Results?

HCG starts to work usually, in the initial 24 to 48 hours post treatment. Usually results are visible within three to say ten days or may be sooner after the injection is administered. But HCG may take about a fortnight to reach its maximum effect.

The effect of HCG is said to last for three to four months in most patients. The muscle activity eventually becomes normal with the passing of time. Moreover, other areas tend to resume normal activity sometime sooner or later. It all depends on the amount of the drug injected.
