Advantages and Disadvantages of Botox Treatment

Nov 30th 2015 at 3:55 AM

Signs of ageing like wrinkles and lines cannot be avoided, but there are ways to keep them from showing or to minimize their appearance. Botox treatment is one of the proven ways to restore your youth by minimizing the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Likewise, it is a good way to restore a smooth appearance to the skin, too, so you can look fresher and younger. Botox, which is short for 'botulinum toxin', is a pure protein derived from a micro-organism (like many of the drugs used today). Approximately over three million botox injections are administered by trained and certified physicians every year around the world.

Botox is known for causing an almost immediate and noticeable improvement to appearance of wrinkles, making it among the most successful non-surgical cosmetic treatments today. Many people who have tried it are satisfied with the results, and as long as the injection is administered by a qualified physician, it is completely effective and safe. Botox targets the nerve signals to reduce their intensity and prevent facial muscles from contracting. As a result, lines and wrinkles overlying the muscles are unable to appear.

It takes only a short time to recover after a botox injection. Small bumps could be felt where the injections were administered in about one to two hours, but everything should be all right afterwards. Some patients may experience bruising, which may take around two weeks to fade. Results are almost noticeable in a week, but the results will be more obvious in two weeks. Botox should make your skin tighter to make you look fresh and young.

The effect of Botox injections typically last from four to five months, but to maintain the look, you need to arrange another session two to three times in your first year of use, then twice a year on your second year. The injection only hurts a bit, and at times, it may not hurt at all due to the tiny needles used to administer the botox. Dermatologists apply numbing cream before the injection, too, so during the process you will be completely pain-free, especially if you have minimal tolerance for pain.

Botox treatment may sound like the holy grail of anti-ageing treatments, but some people are allergic to it. Hence, it is important to check with a certified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon prior to having any botox injections. In case you are allergic to botox, the doctor can recommend other anti-wrinkle treatments that are safer and effective, too.
