As we mature, wrinkle lines may start to appear around the forehead, creating frown lines between the brows which can make us look overly serious or angry. These signs of ageing can easily be treated with injections of botox. This is a quick cosmetic treatment, where the results begin to show after a few days and gradually improve within two weeks.
Botox injections will temporarily weaken the muscles that help to create your facial expressions, and lessening this muscle activity will not only soften the fine lines and wrinkles, but it will also affect the expressions you use on your face. It’s a temporary treatment lasting around 4 months and will need regular top-up injections to keep up the results.
The benefits of botox:
- The speed – Botox gets administered by the practitioner, usually in around 10-20 minutes and the results might be noticeable immediately after the treatment, but it will take a couple of days to settle down and improve.
- Minimally invasive – Botox injections are less invasive than other anti-ageing treatments such as face or brow lifts.
- The price – For many clients the cost of botox is more attractive than other cosmetic or plastic surgery treatments which might cost a lot more.
- Minimal side effects – Like any cosmetic or medical procedure, there are side effects associated with botox; such as redness, itching or bruising, but these occur very occasionally and are temporary.
Botox is an ideal treatment for those who want subtle, non-surgical, anti-ageing treatments. A topical aesthetic gets applied to the skin to make sure the procedure is as comfortable as possible. Botox is then administered into the specific targeted areas, reducing lines and the halting further wrinkles from beginning.
So, where should you get your botox?
With any injectable cosmetic treatment, it’s advisable that you get your procedure done by health care professionals, such as doctors, dentists or nurses, who have been correctly trained and use reputable and safe products. Before going for any treatment, you should do your research and check out the place where you’re having your botox procedure, whether that’s checking it out online, on Internet forums or by word of mouth.
The results of botox should look subtle, and a fully trained practitioner will carefully administer, technically precise injections to give you a fresh and healthy appearance, and not a startled and expressionless look. This results in a naturally smooth and healthy face, free from wrinkles. The effects after a botox treatment are not completely immediate, it starts to work within days, with the greatest effect seen around two weeks later.
