Botox Cosmetic Injection

Botox cosmetic injection can be used to treat numerous issues that include eye deviation, eyelid spasm and facial spasms. As you age, wrinkles and furrows tend to appear on your face which can be a result of sun exposure and sagging, loose skin. Botox treatments can help to enhance your facial features and alleviate these issues.

Botox cosmetic injection can relax the muscle regions where there is excessive tension. For that reason, it can be used to care for facial lines brought on by the muscle action of the skin. Botox works best on the deep creases found between the eyebrows, the crows feet wrinkles, and forehead lines.

Most people who have had Botox cosmetic injection, stat that the procedure hurts some, but it's temporary and then they don't feel anything, right after an injection, you may experience some mild swelling that usually dissipates in 4-24 hours.

Side effects of Botox cosmetic injections are unusual. Rarely, short-term drooping of the eyebrow or eyelid may take place. This can last up to a few weeks. Occasionally, numbness may develop in the treated area.

For most people, they notice immediate results after the first session and these results can last from 2 to 4 months. Most cosmetic surgeons recommend that you have Botox injections every three months. That way, trouble muscle areas steadily shrivel and disappear, allowing the wrinkles they cause to fade away.

If you are pregnant and/or a nursing mother, the manufacturer recommends that you do not participate in Botox treatments.

Botox cosmetic injection is a popular non-surgical procedure that for the short term can soften moderate to severe frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. In addition, Botox cosmetic injections can block the nerve impulses, momentarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles providing your skin with a softer, more refreshed appearance. There is little to no downtime following a Botox treatment. Makeup may be applied directly afterwards.
