The older we get the more clearer the aging process shows. Among the manifold signs of aging are laugh lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet and even marionette lines (the fine lines sloping downwards from our chin) all of which have the rather unfortunate tendency of materialising on our face and thereby make us look older than we actually are.
This is where Botox therapy comes in. Basically this form of skin therapy is a unique method to rid yourself of the many tells tale signs of aging which include frown lines as well as the many fine lines that appear around our eyes with the passage of time. Eliminating these lines either completely or even partially would go a long way in making your face look a whole lot younger.
How it works?
Botox skin and face treatment essentially works by acting to numb the areas that are under treatment (such as portions of the face that may be prone to wrinkles or sagging) for a period of around 16 to 24 weeks (Approx) effectively removing many big and small lines on the different parts of the face that are usually responsible for making you looking considerably older and more aged than your actual age.
Non surgical procedure
This treatment is both minimally invasive as well as a non surgical procedure that lifts the face so that it seems that time has stopped and in fact the clock has gone in reverse. Changes can be seen within less then 72 hours of treatment.
Another point of differentiation between conventional facelift treatment and Botox is that there is no need for prolonged post operation stay at the hospital, at least where the latter is concerned. Moreover, Botox treatment is also markedly less costly when compared to conventional face lift surgery.
With Botox, once it is injected directly into the muscle tissue of the area of the body; that is to be treated, (though either a single injection or multiple ones over the course of treatment) it commences numbing that particular spot so that the wrinkles drop off. It usually takes approximately 2 to 3 days for any visible effects to be seen, but in some rare cases it may take up to a full week before you start get compliments for your new and younger look.
One of the chief indications of aging of the face is ‘drooping brows.’ These occur as a natural part of the aging process. I.e. your once arched brows may start sloping or drooping over a period that may starch for decades. Botox treatment also stops the brows from sloping so that they go back to the way they were when you were younger than you are now. This is why more and more people are now opting for this treatment to reverse the signs of the aging process.
Note: Botox usage is not advisable for either pregnant or lactating women.
