Botox is a non-surgical treatment that in the form of botulism is injected into the facial muscles. It paralyses or weakens the muscles that form wrinkles. The result is a remarkable difference in softening and in fact virtually eliminating deep wrinkles between your brows, creases in your forehead and crow’s feet around your eyes. Botox injections should only be performed by a trained professional in a sterile setting. The results of the injections usually last for about 120 days, after which they will need to be touched up or the face will begin to take upon its previous sagged form.
More and more women and men are turning to Botox injections to reduce the signs of aging, and to rid themselves of unsightly facial wrinkles. Botox, regarded by some as the ultimate fountain of youth has been used for wrinkle treatment since the early 1990′s and no serious side effects have been documented. However it doesn’t mean that the treatment is right for everyone! Read below to know if you are the right candidate for the treatment:
Could it be that Botox weakens emotions as well as facial muscles? It just may, according to researchers at Barnard College. The new findings appear in the journal Emotion.
The researchers concluded that while a person under the influence of Botox can respond normally to an emotional event — such as a sad scene in a movie — they animate, or move their facial muscles, less. Less movement means less feedback to the brain, which could influence their emotional experience.
The bottom line? There may be something to the facial feedback hypothesis, but more research is needed.
While Botox has become a household name for its cosmetic usage, recent medical advances show that Botox has powerful medical benefits as well for certain conditions. One of the latest discoveries is that Botox injections can help cure hyperhidrosis, an embarrassing condition that causes people to sweat in excess.
This condition is problematic for anyone who suffers from it. It can interfere with everyday life, making it hard to feel confident going out in public. For some people, especially those who work in sales, television, or any other interpersonal position, the condition can actually be detrimental, since the sweating is so excessive that it often soaks through clothes and leave a foul order. Many people afflicted with the condition have found that little helps, until Botox.
Botox injections can stifle sweating much the same way they can boost skin for a smoother complexion. When targeted against wrinkles, the lines are lifted. When aimed at sources of excessive sweat, it can block the nerve signals that trigger sweat, therefore reducing the amount of sweat produced. The procedure is relatively safe and effective, with results lasting anywhere between six to twelve months.
For those who suffer from embarrassing sweat, Botox injections can provide that coveted cure, even if only a temporary one with a hefty price tag. Yet, the benefit of being comfortable in the world again may just be worth the cost.
In order to stay young and beautiful, people are willing to have a try and aren’t afraid to pay for it either. The treatment should be conducted in controlled environment with sterile equipment as well as with precautionary equipment on hand just in case there is an emergency. The best idea here is that obviously then, if you are the right candidate for Botox Injections and the cost is right for you, you may consider having it done.
