Anti-Ageing Injections (Botox)
Are you noticing a few more wrinkles and lines when you look in the mirror? If so, you might be considering Botox injections as a way to fight the signs of ageing. You are not alone; Botox injections are used by millions of people worldwide and are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments.
How does Botox work?
Frowning, which results in lines and wrinkles, is caused by muscles contracting. A Botox injection reduces this contraction. It is a misconception that Botox “freezes” the face; it limits movement which, in turn, relaxes and smoothes facial wrinkles.
The treatment is relatively simple and straightforward. A micro-thin needle is used to inject small quantities of Botox into the muscle or skin. From one individual to another will impact the number of injections will vary depending on the size of the area normally the face being treated, the severity of the lines, etc. You may feel some discomfort during the procedure, but most people cope with this easily.
After the procedure
Typically you will be able to continue your normal activities immediately after your treatment. However, do not go straight to the gym, or take a hot bath, as this could cause you to sweat out the Botox. Also, do not massage or rub the treated area for 24 hours.
Do not expect to see a change to your appearance instantly. It can take 5 to 10 days for the injections to take effect. To maintain your wrinkle-free appearance it is advisable, initially, to have treatments every 3 to 4 months. After a time the muscles will be “re-trained”, and the injections will only be required every 6 to 12 months.
In the past cosmetic treatments were seen to be solely for women. This is not the case anymore; many men are also discovering the benefits of Botox injections . For many people anti-ageing treatment isn’t about vanity, it’s about building confidence. Feeling good about the way you look, invariably means feeling better about yourself, and this applies to both men and women.
Botox injections are simple and quick-you could have the treatment during your lunch break- and can make real changes to the way you look and feel.
