Why should you think about trying Botox? Botox can treat a variety of different signs of aging such as wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Botox is a type of botulinum toxin that paralyzes your facial muscles so wrinkles don’t form. This toxin prevents the release of the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, that causes your facial muscles to contract and cause wrinkles. The procedure only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete and there is no recovery time needed. Unfortunately the effects of Botox are only temporary and lasts a couple of months. The treatment can be done again without any negative side effects, each time improving the appearance of your wrinkles.
Botox treatments have grown increasingly popular and have become the gold standard for wrinkle removal. Many celebrities have chosen Botox because it is much less invasive than some of the other cosmetic treatments and surgical procedures out there. It is also important to know about some of the risks of Botox, such as temporary bruising. There are also some rare cases where some patients suffered from headaches, drooping eyelids, reduced blinking, and muscle weakens.
Besides cosmetic procedures, Botox has also been used for a variety of other different medical treatments. These treatments include various kinds of muscle stiffness and contraction problems, severe underarm sweating, eyelid twitching, improper alignment of the eyes, and eye muscle disorders.
