Hold Back The Hands Of Time With Botox Injections
Getting older is something that is unstoppable – yet many of us fear the physical signs of ageing that especially appear on our face. Although maturity does come with its own set of benefits, such as a stronger sense of self, that doesn’t mean you have to accept the negative points of growing older. Lines and wrinkles are something many struggle with eventually and they can be a real source of self-consciousness for many. However it doesn’t have to be this way: with the help of Botox injections you can prevent that formation of these lines and wrinkles before they become an issue.
Taking the right steps
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables on the market. Botox is a form of muscle relaxing injection and has long been the staple of most cosmetic institutes. Botox injections are an effective non-surgical solution to the signs of ageing and work by ‘freezing’ the facial muscles in which they are injected into. This is an effective defense against lines and wrinkles as it is due to a combination of overuse of the facial muscles and a decline in collagen that cause wrinkles. Many of us overuse our facial muscles on a daily basis without realising it; while this isn’t an issue in our youth as the high levels of collagen present within our skin provides the skin with the firmness needed to spring back from the strain the facial muscles put on our skin, as we enter our late 20’s our bodies collagen production begins to slow down. Our skin can’t cope with the creasing caused by the facial muscle and wrinkles start to form. Botox injections are an effective defense against this as they allow patients to prevent the damage the facial muscles can cause to the skin by temporarily freezing the facial muscles.
A Popular choice
Botox injections have become a hugely popular form of non-surgical anti-ageing treatment due to the many benefits the treatment provides. For example, Botox injections give patients a quick and convenient solution to their ageing skin. With an average procedure time of just 30 minutes and no recovery time needed Botox injection treatment can provide those with busy lifestyles with an answer to their ageing skin that can be fitted into their schedule without too much hassle or impact on their routine. In addition to this Botox injections also allow patients a more flexible approach to anti-ageing treatment compared to surgical procedure. Not only does Botox injection treatment allow patients to choose to stop or carry on with top-up treatments as they please but it also allows patients more input into the results they receive.
Although the are many benefits to Botox injections it also very important to factor in the risks and potential side-effects of a treatment too. Although non-surgical anti-ageing treatments such as Botox do come with dramatically lower risks then many of their surgical counterparts that doesn’t mean they are risk free, the risks involved with Botox injections include possible bleeding, swelling and bruising at the sight of injection, the risk of infection and the risk of facial muscle and nerve damage.
“Botox injections can be a great way to hold back the hands of time for those who do not wish to undergo surgery. The wonderful thing about Botox injections is that they not only provide patients with immediate improvement to the look of already present lines and wrinkles, but offer patients with prevention against further signs of ageing from developing. As a result this can be a great option for slightly younger patients as they can enforce a barrier against lines and wrinkles before they appear. They say prevention is better than a cure; it’s certainly true when it comes to the signs of ageing.”
