It is generally accepted that the older you get the wiser you get. Life experience teaches many lessons and sometimes they have to be learnt the hard way. Unfortunately, the aging process also brings wrinkles, age spots and a variety of other age related battle scars. The good news is that you can do something about these wrinkles. There is now a range of anti-aging treatments available. Each one has specific benefits and research is essential in order to pick the correct treatment for your skin.
This is a well-established treatment and is excellent at providing a smoother appearance to your skin. It is injected and works by relaxing facial muscles to ensure wrinkles fade or disappear. It’s very common to have Botox injected into the forehead to remove frown lines. A huge advantage of this treatment is the lack of scars. There is simply a small injection point which heals almost instantly. The procedure is quick and simple and avoids the hassle of being operated on with a scalpel.
It may also be interesting to note that the main protein ingredient in Botox has been used in a variety of treatments for medical conditions. It is also possible that this protein may spread to other parts of the body when administering Botox. This will result in symptoms very similar to Botulism poisoning.
This is a much less known version of Botox. Botox is a brand and not a treatment. Dysport does exactly the same job. The effects of injecting with Dysport show much more quickly on the face than with Botox. Research also suggests that it is better at reducing lines around the eyes (often known as crow’s feet). It arrived on the market just a few years after Botox and restricts muscle activity in much the same way as Botox. There have been known to be side effects but these are usually minimal and do not last for long. Potential effects are irritation of the throat or nose, swelling of the eyelids, sickness, inflammation of the skin and skin irritation.
Botox and Dysport are extremely common treatments for reducing wrinkles. Most cosmetic surgery London clinics have these substances. A third category comes into place and it is called Xeomin. This drug targets the frown lines found between the eyebrows. It is exceptionally good at treating moderate or severe frown lines and has been approved by the FDA for such use. Instead of relaxing muscles, this drug restricts the activity in the nerve endings at the muscles in between the eyebrows.
The result is smoother skin and a lack of visible wrinkles. Xeomin does not need to be refrigerated as it has no additives. This also means there is little chance of a reaction from the patient’s immune system because there is nothing there for the immune system to see as an invasion. Those who have had the treatment report visible effects within a week of the drug being administered. Its effects can last up to six months.
The right solution
Which treatment is best for you depends on which part of your skin concerns you the most. It is impossible to guide anyone to a single solution. Everyone expects different results and each body will react differently to the treatment. It is essential to take advice from a medical professional who specializes in this type of cosmetic surgery before agreeing to any treatment. The results of any of these treatments are truly remarkable and testify to the fact that it is possible to look years younger. It is also possible for surgery to go wrong so you should always work with a professional practice and experienced, well-qualified doctors. A recommendation via friends is the best way to be sure you have found a good practice.
How far are you willing to go to look 10 years younger? Botox can help you reach all your goals with almost no pain. The treatments are now safer than ever, and they’re performed with the latest technology. There’s nothing to be worried about. However, considering this is cosmetic surgery we’re talking about, you shouldn’t exaggerate with the Botox. You want to look younger and more beautiful, not artificial and unrecognizable.
