Why Botox is so Useful
by Health Blogger Brooklyn Monaghue
Over the past several years Botox has gone from a treatment reserved for the rich and famous to an anti-aging ritual that people anywhere can enjoy. In 2010 over 5 million people enjoyed the benefits of Botox injections. This treatment is safe and will quickly smooth away fine lines and deep wrinkles. After just one treatment skin looks healthier and younger.
Botox injections are administered into lines and wrinkles on the face. Before the procedure a numbing cream is usually applied to the face to lessen any pain that might be caused by the needle. The needle used to insert the serum is very thin and most patients feel very little pain during the treatment. After the procedure, it’s common for the skin to be somewhat sore and bruised, but any pain or discolouration should disappear within a couple of days. You can usually return to normal activities, including work, the next day. Full results from the treatment will be visible within 2 weeks.
Botox can be used to treat all types of wrinkles that appear on the skin. From small Crow’s Feet to deep creases around the mouth cause by smoking; this skin treatment can soften all types of lines in the skin. It can even lift the corners of the mouth that might sag as the skin ages.
The length of time the results from Botox injections will last varies from patient to patient; the average length of time is between 3 and 4 months. Many patients notice that even after the injections fully wear off, their wrinkles look softer. This is because the serum trains the muscles to relax so they are often less severe than before. As soon as the results wear off it is safe to return to your doctor and get more injections. There are no bad side effects associated with regular or long-term use of this treatment, so you don’t need to worry about skin or nerve damage if you get regular injections. Even if you start getting injections in your twenties it will not harm your skin.
When you visit a reputable Botox provider, like Skin Vitality, your skill will look younger, healthier and will regain the youthful glow that is often lost with aging. Your friends will not notice that you had a treatment done and you will just look fresher and younger. The results are more subtle and softer than more dramatic or invasive surgical procedures, so you won’t be left answering questions about why you look different. You will just look like a younger version of yourself.
