Wrinkles can result on a person’s face due to several reasons, and these reasons are not only restricted to biological factors such as cellular changes or lack of production of collagen. Sometimes wrinkles can occur because of frowning continuously, and this happens because the skin is forced to fold. This folding of skin and muscles beneath it may also cause wrinkles.
In such problematic situations, Botox is a good solution because it works beneath the surface of the skins and directly interacts with the muscles that are causing lines on the faces. With the help of Botox we can successfully stop the release of acetyl-choline, which is basically a substance that helps in eliminating wrinkles.
Why Botox ?
While choosing for any kind of treatment, a common question that usually emerges is, “Why this treatment?” The answer to the choice of Botox is quite simple. Botox has become quite popular over the past few years because it is being chosen by those people who want to achieve a younger looking skin. People who reach their 30s are the ones who usually go for this option in the middle-ages when the wrinkles start to appear on the face.
Botox is also a popular choice for those people who face problems of excessive sweating. Botox can be successfully injected in the sweat glands to reduce or stop sweating to deal with such problems. Moreover, Botox is also used to deal with migraines. People who usually have migraines will find relief if Botox is injected into the muscles of the neck or forehead.
The Botox procedure
The Botox and Fillers treatment are considered as a safe treatment that follows a very simple method. Once the doctor has identified areas that need to be targeted for injections, the process can be followed. The entire treatment procedure should not take more than half an hour, but it depends on the number of areas that are being targeted with injections.
Most people are also worried about the pain that might be experienced in this process. However, the pain inflicted from this procedure is minimal and there is no such requirement of anesthesia.
Recovery (After treatment)
While most treatments put the patients on bed rest, Botox, on the other hand has a very short recovery time. Apart from recovery, you will also be able to see positive results in just a matter of days. Side effects of this treatment are also very minimal, and our statistics show that around 1 to 3% of the patients suffer from swelling, headache or tiredness.
As evident from the name, this treatment basically aims at injecting those products in the patient that help in rejuvenating the skin and as a result of this treatment a patient will be able to eliminate the wrinkles on the skin. Some of the products that are usually injected are collagen and hyaluronic acid.
Facial fillers can be of different types. Some will deal with wrinkles, while others will target the lip line. In any case, fillers are usually considered to be a temporary solution to skin disorders. In order to have a healthy skin the patients are advised to use this treatment continuously with breaks in between that might last from months to a year.
The procedure does not last more than half an hour, just like Botox, but some of the side effects of using this treatment are bruising, swelling and redness. The average recovery time of this procedure is usually a day.
