Botox is a commonly know product to help people combat unwanted wrinkles that form around the forehead, eyes and mouth, however, botox treatment does have some side effects. So, if youâ€™re thinking of going for an anti aging Botox treatment, then you should be aware of the effectiveness that the treatment has for you, and what you should expect from the course of treatment. If you are serious in smoothing down the frown lines and youâ€™re not comfortable with any type of plastic surgery, then anti aging Botox treatment is considered a quick and cheaper alternative for the reduction and fight against wrinkles.
Botulinum toxin type A, or Botox as it is more commonly known is one of the most purified forms of toxin on the market, and could even result in you contracting food poisoning (botulism) if you have huge quantities of it, but, when you are having anti aging Botox treatments the amounts used are small in dose and are injected into specific muscles. Botox works by blocking certain signals to muscles that tell them to contract and so create a wrinkle impression. When these muscles canâ€™t actually contract, then the skin relaxes and appears much more smoother and has fewer wrinkles.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have approved the process of Anti aging Botox treatment as a process and solution for medium to heavy frown lines between the eyebrows as being acceptable to be used. Further, anti aging Botox treatment has also been found to be useful in the use of treating crowâ€™s foot, however, not all types and variants of wrinkles can be used by utilising this product.
Moreover, all facial wrinkles can not be treated the same and go under a treatment of using the anti aging Botox process, as some wrinkles (those which have a high sun exposure) can be quite worrying. Wrinkle marks around the mouth would be minimally affected by a botox injection, as the mouth is needed to move continually for talking, eating and drinking. There are also other factors such as a personâ€™s skin thickness, skin type and the amount of wrinkling in their skin as to whether an injection of Botox into their skin would be effective enough to significantly reduce the wrinkles in the skin.
Botox is injected into a specifically selected muscle within your face by a Doctors, and only the correct amount and smallest amount of muscles are injected so that your faceâ€™s natural expressions are preserved and look natural, because of this the number of injections that a single person receives really does depend on these factors that change from person to person.
Recognised Side Effects
Anti aging Botox treatment is generally considered safe as long as it is administered by a qualified physician. Although, there have been some people with complications and side effects in a small number of people, with the majority of people not minding the small amount of discomfort. Some common side effects that have been reported have been a pain sensation around the injected area, some redness, headaches, nausea, and flu-like symptoms. Botox treatment should only be accepted is it is administered under an experienced and qualified physician, otherwise there could be potential dangers and even an element to land you in hospital.
