Injection for Wrinkles
Skin wrinkles usually result from aging processes. These may as well be caused by habitual facial expressions, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and some other, rare factors such as degradation of the skin as caused by Cortisol.
Whatever the reason, if you want to do away with those unsightly folds, ridges or creases on your face, perhaps you should consider BOTOX® treatment which is the preferred method of celebrities, businessmen and women alike to reduce wrinkling of the skin.
BOTOX® is a derivative of the deadly botulism toxin, and therefore, at the surface, it may not seem like such a good idea to have a deadly poison injected into your skin to make you look better. However, for quite a time now many physicians have successfully used BOTOX® for treatment of various problems ranging from easing muscle spasms to flattening wrinkles because in small quantities it is safe. People who get Botox treatment usually report that they like the results.
Today Botox is frequently used to treat wrinkles around the eyes (“crows’ feet”), and the lines on the forehead and neck.
How does BOTOX work?
BOTOX® is injected using a tiny micro-needle and a very small amount of the purified toxin into the affected area to block impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines. BOTOX® relaxes the muscles so they do not contract.
What makes the best candidate for Botox treatment?
Since Botox acts by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles, you may not be a good candidate for Botox treatment if you have a neurologic disease. Pregnancy and breastfeeding also do not go with Botox. Further, Botox cannot be used while you are on certain medications such as antibiotics and other drugs that interfere with the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles.
Except for the above, any person can choose to get a Botox treatment.
Are there any complications associated with a Botox treatment for wrinkles?
The only major complication of Botox arises when muscles in the vicinity that you didn’t want treated may be weakened temporarily. The weakness will last for the same effective period of Botox (3 to 6 months). This may present a problem such as a temporary eyelid droop. Familiar with the proper use of Botox on the part of the surgeon is, therefore, crucial to avoid this.
Doctors at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery are very much experienced and use Botox often so that they can avoid even mild and temporary side effects.
