Anti Aging

Have you ever noticed how some people never age? But that doesn't seem to be me, is it you? Beauty and age is an oxymoron for me. But Botox works wonders for reducing fine lines and rejuvenating the face, for your anti aging needs. The effects are only temporary, but the injections can be done rather quickly, right in your doctor's office, and it's a pretty simple and straight forward procedure.

After Treatment

For the first 2 to 3 hours after treatment, you should take it easy and try not to rub the treated area. After that you can continue you on with your regular routine.

It can take up to 3 to 4 days before you will actually notice any difference from the Botox. Results can last 3 to 4 months. After that time, you will start to see the wrinkles return.


The most common side effects are:

• Headache

• Bruising

• Flu-like symptoms

• Drooping eyelid

• Nausea

Other side effects include temporary facial pain, redness at the injection site, reduced blinking and weakness in the muscles of the face. In extreme cases, this muscle weakness can limit your facial expression on occasions; a sore may develop on the white of the eye (corneal ulceration).

The risks of repeated Botox injections are not known. However, Botox injections are more convenient and less painful than other procedures for reducing wrinkles and providing your face with a more youthful appearance.

If you are interested in Botox you should contact a cosmetic surgeon in your area. Whether it's Botox or another cosmetic procedure that you want to have done, there is a cosmetic surgeon in your area who can assist you today.
