A German philosopher couldn’t say it any better when he remarked, “Change alone is eternal, perpetual, immortal.” This is true even with facial skin. As you progress in age your skin changes – often in a not flattering manner. Various little monsters such as wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet start to make their appearances and compromise your face’s youthful look. The nice thing, however, is that you can improve these compromising facial changes by using cosmetic remedies like botox injections. You don’t have to let your looks suffer.
Aging is the primary factor that causes wrinkles and other facial skin maladies. As you grow older, the skin gradually diminishes its elastic property – eventually making the skin loose and producing lines and wrinkles. Other factors that hasten the occurrence of these conditions on the face include sunlight, free radicals, hormonal changes, excessive muscle use and gravity. These factors can start to have their effects felt as early as the age of 20.
In terms of wrinkles, there are two main options to remedy them: the surgical and non-surgical method. The surgical method, predominantly represented by face lift, is seen as an efficient solution to facial skin maladies. The main drawback is that surgery is generally invasive making it a host of potential risks and side-effects. Surgery is also more expensive and cosmetic surgery is typically not covered by insurance.
On the other hand, non-surgical remedies are usually cheaper and they can be administered right at the clinic in a few minutes or hours. Non-surgeries are also less prone to risks and complications. For these reasons, non-surgical methods to remedy wrinkles and the likes are becoming more and more popular. And on top of the list of these non-surgical solutions is the effective anti-wrinkle treatment called botox.
Botox is actually just one of the commercial brand names of a protein called botulinum toxin. In cosmetic medicine, this protein is utilized to fix wrinkles, facial creases and moderate to severe brow furrow.
The procedure applies a small amount of diluted botulinum toxin to a selected area, enabling a controlled weakening of the muscles. The protein is normally injected to weaken fine muscles around the forehead and eyes. By selecting the proper muscles to be weakened, the surgeon can slowly eliminate the deep wrinkles without disturbing the normal functioning of muscles. The effect of non-surgical remedies, which begin to appear a few days after application, can last for about 4 to 6 months. Smoothing out of wrinkles and creases through the use of non-surgical treatments is really possible if done by a competent cosmetic surgeon.
