Wrinkles Be Gone! Have You Tried the World’s Most Popular Wrinkle Treatment?

Almost everyone has heard of, know someone who’s tried or tried Botox themselves. The results are undeniable when applied properly which likely explains the growing popularity of this outpatient cosmetic surgery treatment. In a relatively short period of time (the past 15 or 20 years) Botox has gone from a little known procedure to one almost as common as teeth whitening. This brief article will take a look at Botox, how it works and whether or not it may be something you want to consider adding to your anti-aging arsenal.

The primary application for the use of Botox is the minimization of wrinkles. Minimization is the more appropriate term to use here since the wrinkles don’t actually go away, they only disappear temporarily. Botox is injected directly into the treatment area and works by causing the nerve endings to numb. Once they are numb, the muscles that they control no longer contract so in effect, they become paralyzed. Once they are paralyzed, they are unable to cause the wrinkles. Since so many people show the effects of aging in their faces, a vast majority of Botox treatments are given in the forehead, around the eyes, in the neck and in some cases, the lips.

In addition to its use as a cosmetic enhancer, Botox also has some very legitimate therapeutic benefits as well. Almost any medical condition that is caused by repeated muscle spasms or uncontrollable twitching can be helped by Botox to a certain extent. However, as wonderful and effective as Botox treatments may be, they are not permanent and must be reapplied about every 6 months or so for maximum effectiveness.

Although Botox has been approved for use by the FDA, it is like any other medication in that it can have side effects. If you are considering using it, you should be aware that symptoms such as nausea, headaches, and bruising or soreness at the injection site have are quite common. Most of the time, these symptoms are quite mild however which is one of the reasons that Botox has become so widely accepted.

We hope that this brief review of Botox it uses and explanation of side effects has been helpful to you. Remember that, as with any procedure, there is the potential for side effects so if you are considering using Botox, please do your research carefully.
