Botox: The Wrinkle Treatment that Works Wonders It has been ten years since the US FDA has approved the use of Botox for aesthetic purposes. Over the years, more and more people have been trying out this treatment to look more presentable and youthful. Because of this, it is easy to say that Botox is the most sought-after wrinkle treatment of the last decade. Many worries are due to the countless horror stories that circulate. Horror stories about the pain, damage and general unpleasantness of this fairly straightforward practise. Are these worries real? The real question here is what went wrong in the horror stories? The simple answer to this, sadly, is that the people in the horror stories had their extensions applied by inexperienced and badly trained(if at all) stylists. If you are one of those people seeking for the best beauty treatments that can combat the aging process and make you 10-20 years younger, you may be frustrated. Sure, there are nourishing creams, essences, masks and serums that promise to make your skin better but aging is inevitable. Once your lines start appearing on your forehead, eye areas and mouth, it would be extra difficult to eliminate them. You may go to a beauty salon or spa to be professionally treated but it still wouldnâ€™t be enough. That is when Botox comes in the equation. Botox is a toxin from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. It is an injection which is given in relatively small doses to paralyze some muscles on your face to prevent them from showing off those lines and wrinkles. In some cases, Botox also takes care of the pain felt on your face, as well as sagging and drooping of certain areas such as the eyebrows and the jaw line. It leaves your skin looking and feeling tighter. When done by a professional and an expert in anti-aging, Botox will make you ageless just after a few sessions. On the other hand, some people tend to overdo the process of getting a Botox injection. This usually results in puffiness and tightness in the wrong places, making them look much older than they actually are. So if you are thinking about getting a Botox in the future, it is important to nourish and take care of your skin first. Hydrate yourself. Stop smoking. Avoid factors that can dry out your skin. Invest on a topical wrinkle treatment. Then if youâ€™re ready to undergo the Botox wrinkle treatment, be sure to target the key areas such as temples, front of the ears, forehead and the chin to look naturally and gracefully younger.
