Wrinkles and fine line are inevitable with age, but fortunately, their treatment options are also increasingly plentiful. There are countless OTC products, as well as longer-lasting options such as Botulinum Toxin and dermal fillers. These anti-aging treatments work to boost our self-confidence.
Botulinum toxin, typically referred to as Botox, is a muscle relaxer made from bacteria. It is also a non-invasive injection that eliminates or minimises creases, fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet near the eye areas, forehead lines, and thick bands present in the neck. It has been used as a treatment for decades and is sometimes also utilised in treating migraines.
Botox is also useful for treating neurological disorders that lead to muscle weakness, among other medical issues. The toxin fundamentally impedes the nerve impulses that contract the muscles. Hence, it momentarily numbs the muscles that lead to wrinkles. At the same time, it gives the skin a more rejuvenated and smoother appearance.
There is no real recovery time with this treatment. However, keep in mind that you might experience slight swelling, and bruising right after the procedure, due to the piercing of the needle. There are no long-term side effects, however, meaning that you can carry on with your regular activities right away. Botox lasts from 3 to 6 months before you require the next session.
If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to conceive, it is vital that you consult with your doctor before getting a Botox treatment.
