Botox Anti-Aging Treatment
What Is Botox And What Can It Be Used To Treat?
Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into the facial muscles. It is used to treat moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. Work by preventing nerve impulses from reaching the injected muscles. The effects are only temporary. This treatment has been approved for people who are between the ages of 18 and 65.
Botox was first approved by the Food And Drug Administration for cosmetic use back in 2002. Many people choose to get this treatment because it is minimally-invasive and does not require a lengthy recovery time. It is also a lot less expensive than many other cosmetic treatments.
How Long Does Botox Last And Are There Any Side Effects?
For most patients, the results will last around four months. However, it is important to note that the amount of time that your results last will vary. Even though the results of Botox are not permanent, you may notice that the fines and wrinkles do not come back as severe. Botox is a safe treatment, and most people do not develop any serious side effects after getting it. Infection, bruising and redness in the injection site are some of the most commonly reported side effects. These side effects usually go away within three days.
Double vision, pain, eyelid swelling, flu-like symptoms, headache and dizziness are far less common, but they are more serious. If these side effects become persistent, then you will need to see a doctor as soon as possible.There is also a chance that you will have an allergic reaction to the Botox. Dizziness, asthma symptoms and itchy welts are some of the possible signs of an allergic reaction. You will need to see a physician right away if you have an allergic reaction. These side effects are not very common and most patients react normally.
