Have you ever considered botox but felt unsure of what botox is and what it can do for you? Many people have an idea what botox is, but most don’t exactly know what it is and how it works. Botox is an injection of a chemical that temporarily prevents a muscle from moving by blocking the chemical signals to that muscle. This sounds serious but it’s not a very strong chemical and one of its more common use is to relax the muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. The injection is also made so precisely that it only affects the area where it is injected.
Botox injections are a simple process. A trained doctor will use a thin needle and inject it directly into the skin or muscle. You’re not likely to even feel it but multiple injections may be necessary depending on how big of an area needs to be treated. You’ll likely notice its effects one to three days after the injection and the effects can last up to months after the injection. If you want to maintain the effect though, you’ll have to have regular follow-ups.
There are also few risks related to botox injections as long as the procedure is done by an experienced doctor. Some risks include pain, headaches, flu-like symptoms, droopy eyelids, crooked smiles, drooling, eye dryness, or excessive tears. There are more serious side effects but those and these side effects are again unlikely as long as you’re being worked on by an experienced doctor.
Botox cosmetic is one of the most common usages of botox. Wrinkles are a problem we all face in life eventually and botox is an effective treatment for wrinkles.
