Curious About Botox?08-08-2019 9:08 PM / Posted in News by Sericin+
Botox is a cosmetic injectable neurotoxin that is a very diluted form of Botulinum Toxin, which is found in the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. In this diluted format, it is used to relax your muscles – typically in your forehead, in between your eyebrows, and around your eyes. The idea is that if you temporarily block local nerve impulses to specific muscles within your face, you won’t make certain facial expressions, so you won’t form the wrinkles that come with them.
The results of Botulinum toxin start appearing only a few hours after treatment, with the full effect setting in at around the three day mark. These results last around four to six months. Botox is self limiting and normally lasts between 4 to 6 months and isn’t accumulative.
It’s not just for women – of all plastic surgeries, Botox is actually quite popular among men. It is one of the most common procedures that men undergo.
The best part of Botox is people saying that you look great, but they can’t put their finger as to why. When administered effectively, you’ll look like a brighter, smoother version of yourself, but not plastic. To prevent looking frozen, make sure your dermatologist or plastic surgeon tells you how many units they recommend. Everyone’s face is different and again, there is no magic number.
Botox is a very common (and highly-requested) procedure. It’s commonly used for cosmetic reasons, but it also helps alleviate a slew of other health concerns. It was first approved by the FDA in 1989 to treat blepharospasm of the eyelid, and now can treat hundreds of medical conditions, such as hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) or chronic migraines.
But if the idea of injectables freaks you out, or you’re simply unsure, there are some Botox alternatives to consider (which don’t require needles), because settling into your dermatologist’s chair for injections isn’t as easy-breezy as it sounds. Shots can be painful and cause bruising. And at $450 (or more, depending on how many areas you have injected), it’s certainly not cheap either.
However, with a little patience and dedication to a nightly skin-care regimen, you can achieve smooth, wrinkle free skin without injections.
