It is hard to miss all the talk about Botox these days. Comedians and others are often making jokes about people who can’t move their face or show emotions due to the use of Botox. While these jokes may be funny, it is a shame that the truth about how effective Botox can be at reducing many of the signs of aging and allowing people to feel better about themselves is not as easily heard.
As with many other medical procedures, when done by people who are not fully trained and experienced, Botox can be overused and end up with undesired results. When Botox in CT is done in the correct way, using as little as possible to get good results, the improved appearance of those who have had Botox treatments speak for themselves. Many people who have considered a facelift or other more invasive treatments have discovered that they no longer need any work done after having Botox injections.
Botox is most often used to reduce the lines and deep wrinkles that tend to form between the eyebrows, the lines at the side of the eyes referred to as crows feet and deep forehead wrinkles. That isn’t to say that it can’t be used in other areas, depending on the situation. A trained and experienced medical professional can easily let you know if Botox is a viable option for a concern you have about the appearance of your face.
The great thing about Botox is that it can be done quickly and have you on your way in no time. There shouldn’t be any swelling or other problems in the areas where the injections are done. It normally takes about three to five days for the muscles that cause these lines to relax. The improvements you see will last for about six months, depending on the person. While this means you will need to have more injections done twice a year to maintain the improved appearance, it also means that if for any reason you aren’t happy with the results, you just have to wait and they will go away in time. The same can’t be said for invasive surgical procedures.
