Botox Relaxes Muscles to Ease Away Fine Lines
Botox is a very common treatment these days. However, if you are considering getting a Botox treatment for the first time, you may still have some doubts in your mind. Getting to know more about the procedure and how the injection actually works is the best way to put those fears to rest.
Botox Cosmetic is an injection given at the sites where there are fine lines. The bacterium Clostridium botulinum produces a neurotoxin called botulinum, and when this neurotoxin is diluted to the right proportion, it can be used safely in the form of Botox injections.
Botox is an FDA-approved treatment that has been rigorously tested. The product relaxes the muscles by blocking the nerve signals that cause the muscles to contract. As they relax, the skin above them relaxes, resulting in smooth, youthful, wrinkle-free skin.
Ideal Botox Candidates
Most people are good candidates for Botox. You should not wait for your wrinkles to get prominent before you get Botox. Instead, when they are still light, you can get Botox to precisely erase those fine lines without leaving a trace. This can act as a way to prevent the wrinkles in that region from getting severe and can stop them from reappearing as well. In some cases, dermal filler injections may be a better choice for treatment of severe wrinkles.
Wrinkles on several areas of the face can be addressed with Botox, most commonly those that occur in the upper third of the face. Make sure that you do your homework to understand the treatment. To ensure that you experience quality results from the treatment without negative side effects, it’s best to pick an expert physician injector to perform the treatment.
Benefits of Botox
• Botox is a non-surgical method of wrinkle reduction, so you do not have to worry about scars. This also means that you don’t have any real down time other than avoiding facial massage or exercise in the first few hours after treatment, so you’ll be able to go right back to your normal everyday schedule. Many busy professionals even get their treatments done during lunch breaks.
• Botox is known to be precise, so when there are minor flaws that need to be corrected, it’s often a better choice than most other treatments.
• Botox injections are also known to have preventive effects. When you start regularly taking them, in the long run you may notice a visible improvement in the texture and elasticity of your skin. You will also notice a reduction in the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles on your face.
• Besides reducing wrinkles, Botox can create a natural lift to certain areas of the face, especially the brows. The overall results of the treatment look natural when performed correctly. If you start noticing the results wearing off, you can always head back to get another treatment.
