Say Goodbye to Unwanted Wrinkles with Botox Injections
Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of getting older, but that doesn’t mean we welcome them. There is no permanent solution to ageing, but you can still improve the condition of your skin. Getting older doesn’t necessarily mean you have to look older, and a number of cosmetic treatments now provide the solution to turning back the hands of time for that little bit longer. One of the most popular cosmetic anti-ageing treatments on the market is Botox.
Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic injectable that’s hugely popular world-wide and used by people who want to prevent the signs of ageing within the skin. Botox essentially freezes the facial muscles, which is an effective solution to ageing skin – it is a combination of overuse of the facial muscles and a decline in collagen levels that causes lines and wrinkles to form in the first place. We all overuse our facial muscles on a daily basis to perform various tasks, which forces the skin to contort in order to adapt. This is less of an issue in our youth, because the high levels of collagen in the body allow the skin to bounce back with ease. However as we enter our late twenties, collagen production begins to slow down and as a result many of us find our skin can’t bounce back as well, and wrinkles are formed.
Botox allows patients to improve the look of visible signs of ageing, whilst also protecting against the formation of further lines and wrinkles. Botox provides instant results, as well as a preventative measure against the signs of ageing in the long-term. It’s also a great alternative to lengthy surgical anti-ageing procedures – the treatment can be performed in just 30 minutes. You you could even have it as a lunch time treatment and return back to your working day almost immediately.
Although Botox has a host of positives, the treatment still has some risks that patients should be aware of. Risks associated with Botox use include bruising, swelling and bleeding at the site of injection, as well as the chance of infection and possible damage to the facial muscles and nerves. These risks are unlikely (although the likelihood varies from patient to patient – Dr. Thevendra will be able to assess your suitability for Botox during your consultation) but should be considered nonetheless.
Resident Cosmetic Doctor at Apsaras Cosmetic Practice, Dr. S. Thevendra, said:
“Botox is well-known and well-practiced, and very often the results speak for themselves. Botox provides patients with skin rejuvenation that can rival even the results of a surgical procedure, and it’s convenient, low-risk and time-effective. My main advice to prospective Botox patients is to do your research and scope out an experienced cosmetic professional.”
