I don’t know about other people but I read everything I can about moisturizers that will keep my skin youthful looking and with less wrinkles. I often ask myself, “Would I consider getting Botox treatments to reduce wrinkles?” I’ve done some research about Botox and I wanted to pass this information along to women/men who may be planning to try the Botox injections to improve the looks of wrinkles.
I’ve asked myself repeatedly, “Would I be willing to have the anti-aging treatment, a preparation of botulinum toxin, which is injected into my bodies system. What type of health issues might I risk? Could it possibly cause a disfiguring of my face or the areas of my body where it is injected?” Many questions flood my mind and I’m at odds about the situation that could give me a more youthful look.
Doctors have been using Botox treatments for several years now and I’m sure they’re experienced at strategically injecting Botox into different areas of the body to achieve the most natural-looking results.
Research indicates that the extent of muscle relaxation depends on the amount of Botox that is injected into a desired area. Doctors believe that it is more real and attractive looking for a person to have some natural movements in the areas injected to prevent a “fake” and “artificial” look.
I read an artical in Dailyglow.Com that Botox has some competition and that Dysport is another formulation of botulium toxin on the market as well as Xeomin which is another rendition that has recently been approved by the FDA. These added competitors allow a person to discuss the best type of injection for their skin type.
I’ve talked to some people who have had Botox treatments for several years and they’ve told me, “It doesn’t hurt because they ask their doctor to use a numbing cream. They have also indicated they’ve had “no” bad results from using the Botox treatments and they’re pleased with the outcome.”
Some women have extremely soft skin and they begin to show the signs of wrinkling at an early age while others do not see too much wrinkling until well into their fifties. I’ve been lucky as a senior because I have few wrinkles which I attribute to me taking excellent care of my skin throughout the years. Moisturizers are a daily part of my everyday life and it has been for many years. I’ve stayed out of the sun as much as possible and I use a sun-screen to prevent any damage.
I’m a firm believer that women should do what it takes to keep themselves looking attractive and youthful because it offers them more self-confidence and feelings of self-worth when they’re looking their best. Women are living longer and looking greater and I’m a believer that by taking care of one’s self adds to a woman’s self-esteem and looks.
Botox is not filler, it relaxes the muscle contractions causing the wrinkles in certain areas. According to Dr. Wu of the NY Dermatology Group, hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are, “Fillers to plump lips, fill in acne scars, and fill up sagging wrinkles such as the ones going from the nose to the corners of the mouth.”
The cost for having a Botox treatment varies because it depends on the amount of Botox that is being injected; costs can range from $250 to $500 for common treated areas such as frown lines between the eyebrows. Prices differ in different parts of the U.S., according to Dailyglow.Com.
A Botox treatment will last approximately four months, while this depends on the area a person lives in and how long a person’s body metabolizes the treat.
I have decided I will use Botox treatments after I’ve discussed it
