Before Using Botox, Consider These Facts First

Regardless of the advantages, nervousness relating to Botox continues to be obvious and primarily stems from it’s origin. Botox (Botulinum Toxin) is a neurotoxin protein produced from the Clostridium  Botulinum bacterium and that is known as one of the most poison naturally occurring substances around, which in significant amounts could lead to food poisoning and further risks. The good news is small diluted  doses of the toxin enables a safe controlled weakening of the muscles used for cosmetic purposes today. The procedure is practiced daily on lots of individuals globally and is only regarded as risky  if you are allergic, pregnant or suffer from a neurological disease. However, prior to planning a Botox treatment it is still recommended to speak with a doctor to discuss whether are you a good candidate for  the procedure. Special attention should also be taken in choosing an appropriately competent specialist in your area.

how-to-remove-moles-from-faceTo truly know how Botox works, stop and think back to when you were a kid. Your parents probably told you at one point when you were making  weird faces that if that you were not careful, your face would freeze that way. Now think of your face years ago when it was smoother, younger and without most of the deep dramatic wrinkles. By essentially  freezing many of the muscles on the face, it is able to work to eliminate the wrinkles because the muscles cannot contract and move to create the wrinkle lines.

Botox injections give good results because Botox it is a neuro-toxin that paralyses the muscles it is injected into, e.g. zones close to the eyes and forehead , and freezing the movement in those areas. Because Botox treatments are not long-term and function by just temporarily paralyzing muscles, repeat Botox treatments are needed. When Botox shots or Botox creams are being used, there could be some puffiness and numbness close to the area that was treated, however this is quite regular and the effects are rather  brief.

Botox has attracting hordes of females despite the potential risks and side-effects reported. Should anyone really be worried about Botox? To  understand in details you have to know a bit more regarding Botox: – the study and research of the Botox started off during 1820 when Dr. Justinus Kerner, a doctor from Germany wished to uncover the reason for demise of  individuals who died from food poisoning. The doctor uncovered that botulism was the main food poisoning factor behind it. Gradually the study carried on and it was discovered that botulinum toxin has several associated  strains among which F, E, B and A, and these 4 can be the cause of death of human beings. As luck would have it, there are couple of Botox side effects and despite the fact that a neuro-toxin is used to create the  anti-aging effect, it is still a safe procedure

For individuals who suffer with acne, scarring, Botox injections are used to help reduce the effects or to help soften old skin. Truth be told there are not many celebrities that have not had a Botox injection to make themselves look more youthful. Typically, guys commonly choose less-invasive surgeries such as Botox treatments, collagen injections, chemical peels and microdermabrasion for instance. Botox itself is not a permanent solution and does require repeated injections in order to maintain the effects. However, immediately after the treatment, you can normally start to feel a  difference and the full effects are visible around 2 weeks later. As the Botox starts to wear off the muscles, the muscles at the site of injection will normally begin to regain function, which will cause the  wrinkles to reappear. While many older individuals are uncomfortable with wrinkles and lines, some people decide at this point that Botox is not for them and do not repeat the process.

Skin surface peels are another Botox alternative wherein chemicals utilized, such as dermabrasion, trichloracetic acid,  laser peels, and strong phenol peels, that peels the outer dermis of your skin. This kind of treatment is also reliable though this is an expensive option. Aside from this, recovery and healing after surgery/peels may take a long time. Scarring or having an uneven skin colors may be another consequence you have to suffer after operation/peels.

It is essential to keep in mind that not all plastic surgeons can do the procedure efficiently. Not all plastic surgeons who inject Botox are sufficiently skilled to provide you maximum results with minimal risks of side effects. The higher costs of board certified cosmetic surgeons or dermatologists  make their expertise and experience well worth it.

There have been known unwanted side effects to Botox treatments ; among them flu-like symptoms, pain and redness at the injected areas, and sometimes drooping muscle(s)  at the injected site. Despite FDA approval, Botox injections are now labeled with a black box carrying a warning of potential life threatening complications if the toxin runs further than the injection site. The 2 most serious bad effects that are documented till date are allergic implications and paralysis of muscles.  In rare cases it’s been observed that the toxins in Botox have triggered allergies which caused users to die. Some individuals were even hospitalized for many days. Hence consider the potential bad effects of Botox before you proceed.

Whether you go to the doctor’s office to get Botox, or have a medical specialist come to your home, the procedure will be basically the same.

The period of the effect of the Botox depends on the type of Botox being applied as well as the quantity used, however in days it is possible  to notice a marked improvement that is able to last roughly half a year. So if it is a young-looking appearance that you are after, this may be the time to book or save up for your next Botox treatment!.
