Hide Wrinkles And Creases With Botox

No matter the level of care and caution you apply on your skin, signs of ageing will catch up with you eventually. Every day, we smile, frown, laugh and even sneeze. These repeated daily facial expressions can make a face to grin and cause fine lines, wrinkles to develop around the eyes and foreheads. This development makes you look angry, confused and tired even when you are not. Stress also result from it the fast growth of these wrinkles when it becomes excessive. These wrinkles and creases will eventually make you look tired and older than you are actually.

Fortunately, a combination of several cosmetics and injections you can safely use to treat and reverse these adverse effects of ageing. It will make you regain your lost youthful vigour in no time. Botox is a top grade selling FDA approved product and the first of its kind in the history of skin care. It works by inhibiting the contraction of these muscles that result in wrinkles and creases. Thereby producing a softer, smoother and younger looking appearance.

Which Areas Can Be Treated With Botox?

Botox is usually used to weaken the facial muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines to appear on the face. Especially crow’s feet and glabella. They are the “11 lines” between your brows individually. Botox is also commonly used to relax the neck and thigh bands. But you should consult a medical practitioner to advise you on the best choice that suits your skin type and has the most minimal possible side effects if any.

How Does Botox Work?

Botox is administered on the skin using a small fine needle to inject the specific site that needs enhancement. The most active ingredient in Botox is known as Botulinum toxin. This toxin is released to prevent the impulse of the nerves from reaching the muscles. So your muscles will be relaxed and create minor wrinkles and creases alongside. You can enjoy this effect for several months before you will need another treatment.

What Is Botox Treatment Like?

Botox is an in-office treatment that doesn’t last longer than 15minutes to administer. Although slight discomfort characterises the process at the injection site. But it will only last for a few seconds. And it fades off a few moments after the treatment. This allows you to continue with your normal daily activities before the treatment.

Botox is unique due to its zero downtime in the procedure involved. Its effect is so calm that people will hardly know the secret of your sudden refreshed look and appearance.

Are There Any Alternative To Botox?

If you want to consider alternatives, consider Xeomin because it is similar to Botox and it has no additives. It is useful in treating wrinkles and fine lines just like Botox. However, if you want to restore the lost volume in your face, you may consider dermal fillers as an option. Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Radiesse are dermal filler treatment used to pump the lips, reverse the effects of ageing and enhance shallow contours. Juvederm results can stay up to 12 months while Radiesse can last up to 2years.

If you like to consider Botox or any of the alternatives suggested above, you should seek proper guidance from a medical practitioner.
