23 Feb Botox Treatment – Pros and Cons
We all face wrinkles on the forehead and corners around the eye as we age. The development of wrinkles, in fact, is an early sign of aging. As dermatologists, we classify wrinkles as a dynamic that occurs on movement and static which appear on rest. Over time the dynamic wrinkles are as simple as we have. An age-old tested product that works on the mechanism of wrinkle formation. This is botulinum toxin which is popularly known as ‘Botox’. This is a protein that selectively works at the injected site to reduce of contraction of the overactive muscle. This causes the relaxation of muscles smoothes overlying skin and reduces wrinkles.
We sometimes wonder whether it’s bad or we once start will get habitual. The answer is that the wrinkles will return to the original appearance once the effect of Botox wears off. Discontinuing the Botox will not worsen your wrinkles. ‘What’s the right age to start?’ Most patients start in the ’30s when the appearance of lines starts to worry. But, some may need to start in the late ’20s as well. The procedure is simple and is performed after a topical numbing cream is applied. The product is then injected specifically into the overactive muscle. The results appear in 7-10 days and last for around 6 months. It’s important to get the procedure done with a certified dermatologist. Also, be sure of the quality of the product used as now many cheaper versions of botulinum toxins are available. Side effects with standard products are rarely known.
