What is Botox?
Botox is an injectable product that contains the biological compound, botulinum toxin. When injected, the toxin temporarily disables the targeted muscle; thus, the wrinkling generated from its contraction is eliminated. The most common areas of injection are the forehead, brow and outer eyes and around the neck (also known as turkey neck). Extra injections around the lips can also be of benefit.
Botox Cosmetic has become a leading and popular cosmetic procedure and has received much publicity for its success. The reasons for its immense popularity are numerous. The procedure is easy to perform with little or no downtime. The procedure is effective, cost efficient and almost painless while the risks are minimal. However, Botox® Cosmetic should not be considered without any risk at all.
Botox Cosmetic is a neuromuscular toxin that inhibits the release of acetylcholine within the nerves. These nerves are located within the muscles that are injected. Without the release of acetylcholine, muscles become inactive.
The affects of Botox® last anywhere between three to five months. One will notice a difference in wrinkle reduction two to three days after injection. Almost all patients are extremely happy with their results and often return for repeated injections or to request a permanent surgical solution.
Important Things To Remember About Botox
The advantages of Botox can dramatically improve all wrinkles that are caused by overactive muscles. Men and women alike over the age of 30 can benefit from Botox. Botox helps with wrinkles that are caused by over-active muscles, however static wrinkles or very fine wrinkles are not removed by Botox® Cosmetic. These wrinkles are caused by changes within the skin itself or are due to the aging changes of the skin and underlying fat. Correcting fine wrinkles requires a thorough evaluation with a Luxxery skin professional to determine the exact cause and to diagnose the most effective treatment. Various treatments and services for fine/superficial wrinkles at Luxxery include a chemical peel procedure, laser skin resurfacing, a face lift, fat or collagen Injections, or a brow lift.
