Botox comes from a neurotoxin named as Botulinum. It is a purified form of proteins which is derived from a bacterium. This toxin has been put to use for treating a number of conditions after comprehensive research and study. Botox is capable of relaxing facial muscles to remove the appearance of wrinkles and lines from the face which has gained it much popularity. It can also be used to treat a condition like excessive sweating, medically known as hyperhidrosis.
When to Start?
Botox is one of the most effective treatment options for lines and wrinkles. If you feel the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows, or horizontal lines on the forehead, or wrinkles around the eyes, its time you talk to your doctor about getting a botox. Such lines and wrinkles can make you look tired, grumpy and older than your age.
If you feel that a wrinkle or lines are starting to appear, you can get a botox to prevent the appearance of wrinkles or lines because it paralyzes the movement of the hyperactive muscles. Your doctor will guide you better about the right time for botox. However, if you are pregnant, doctors recommend delaying the treatment to be on the safer side.
What to Expect?
The botox treatment aims to remove the appearance of lines and wrinkles by relaxing the facial muscles. Botox can take up to two days to cause disruption in the facial expressions, final results can take up to a week to be noticeable.
The results of the botox treatment are natural looking as your doctor doesn’t focus on one line only but overall facial appearance. It has no downtime but you will experience some short-term side effects. You may feel that treatment area is swollen, bruised and red which is because of the needle. These effects will subside after some hours or you can put on makeup to hide them. Other than this, you can go back to work or daily routine right after the process is completed.
The results of botox are amazing but temporary. The effects will disappear in 4 to 6 months.
