Advancing technology and medical procedures have introduced new and better types of cosmetic surgery. Techniques have expanded to take care of the requirements of aging men and women. Not happy with the way you look right now, then you have available different surgeries to help you find the right benefits for you. But you need to know what is currently available to make a decision for having cosmetic surgery. One such treatment out of all the possibilities is known as Botox. Though Botox does not offer permanent cosmetic surgery, it does provide a possible solution for anyone dealing with an aging and wrinkling face.
Botox is a method to remove wrinkles commonly found in the face and neck area. It has become increasingly popular over the past decade in the cosmetic surgery field. Botox is a natural protein that is produced by a bacterium. Botox can remove wrinkles, strain lines, and other problems with the skin.
Botox can also efficiently treat all areas of the face. It started being used for lines above the forehead that moved either vertically or horizontally. It was also used to remove crow’s feet that normally appear on the sides of the eyes. Now, Botox has also been shown to help remove lines around the lip area, chin, and neck. Botox treatments can be given to all of these areas on the same visit which is a huge benefit and time saver.
Botox also helps relieve contracting muscles in the face and neck area. It is injected in small quantities into the area where the wrinkles are to be removed. The injection is painless and you can see the results in about three days. However, it is a temporary solution and commonly begins to disappear after about four months. So you would need to get your face retreated with Botox approximately every four months. This can be done as many times as you want to with your doctor’s approval however.
Botox, even though effective, is not a substitute for other more permanent cosmetic surgeries. Because it is a temporary solution and it does not permanently alter the face, it is often considered a separate cosmetic surgery. It also does not affect anything other than the wrinkles on the face. Bags and drooping eyelids need something different and that requires a separate surgery.
Botox is a new and growing treatment for anyone who wishes to improve lines that are on their face. Using Botox, you are able to change the wrinkles that appear on your lips, neck, eyes, or forehead area. If you are thinking about using Botox, it is wise to first learn about the procedure and the possible side affects. Understanding how Botox works is an important step in making up your mind if it is a cosmetic surgery procedure that will be worthwhile for you.
If you are just searching for a quick fix before a special event, or family pictures are taken, then Botox might possibly be a consideration for you.
