Botox injections involve the application of a chemical into target areas of your face to treat facial lines and wrinkles and improve facial aesthetics. This is one of the most frequently employed anti-aging treatments that have gained popularity among socialites, celebrities, and eminent personalities.
Botox injections must be applied in small doses to treat facial concerns. It can be employed for the treatment of several other health concerns such as cervical dystonia, uncontrolled blinking, severe sweating, and misaligned eyes. This chemical works to weaken the target face muscles or block nerve reactions.
The benefits of Botox are limited only to a cosmetic treatment that gives your face a younger and revitalized look. You seem to be suffering from wrinkles and fine lines and must have tried numerous anti-aging products, but to no success. This is when you can resort to Botox, a toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium botulinum.
This is the same toxin that causes a deadly form of food poisoning and hence, doctors must be highly trained and certified to be able to administer this.
Botox is primarily used to treat wrinkles that result from constant muscle movement. We constantly use or flex our muscles causing them to contract and expand resulting in the appearance of facial lines.
Constant facial expressions around the eye are common as a result of blinking and eye movements and hence, our facial muscles around this area are more active and prone to wrinkles and fine lines.
Botox falls under the category of an anti-aging treatment wherein dermal fillers are also commonly employed. However, these do differ in their application and composition despite delivering similar results. Dermal fillers are used for filling in wrinkles and other fine lines.
