It is convenient to know all the secrets behind botox since it is one of the most demanded aesthetic treatments among women to look young. Botulinum toxin treatment (popularly known as Botox) is one of the most demanded aesthetic treatments in the world. However, the abusive use of Botox might be a problem and many celebrities have regretted and promised that they won´t ever use it again.
It is a protein called Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox. It is used in many areas of medicine, but in aesthetics, it is used to block nerve impulses that relaxes the muscles. This results in a reduction in muscle contraction, in other words, it reduces expression lines and wrinkles and makes them disappear. When this muscle tension becomes diminished, the result is a smoother, more vibrant skin tone.
Usually, people go to an aesthetic centre to use botox when they have wrinkles or expression lines, but you can go anytime after 30 years old.
The process of receiving injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® is fast and painless. Dr. Parker may use a light topical anaesthetic to ensure your comfort during treatment. Next, tiny amounts of the drug are injected into the areas you wish to treat. Within a few days of treatment, you will begin noticing that wrinkles and fine lines have softened, giving you a rested, refreshed appearance. You will see the full effect of the product in about 14 days. You can expect the effects of botulinum toxin to last three to four months. After that time, most patients decide to undergo additional treatments to continue enjoying the reduced signs of ageing.
If you have noticed permanent lines and wrinkles in your face that make you feel self-conscious, but you do not wish to undergo invasive surgery, you may be an excellent candidate for either BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport®.
