What You Need to Know About Botox

You have probably heard about Botox before but do you really know what it is or how it could benefit you?

What is it?

Botox is derived from the bacterium form of Clostridium botulinum, a natural protein which has been purified. The toxins in this bacterium work to relax (freeze) the facial muscles temporarily that cause fine lines and wrinkles to appear.

Where is it Used?

Botox is commonly injected into facial muscles to diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Popular areas for Botox to be injected are:

  • Crowes feet, around the eye area.
  • Vertical wrinkles between eyebrows (glabella creases).
  • Brow wrinkles.
  • Forehead wrinkles.
  • Along the jawline to counteract a downturned lip.
  • The sweat glands in armpits.

Who Should Get it?

Anybody over the age of 18 is eligible for the procedure, but many professionals do not recommend the use of Botox for cosmetic results to younger people.

People in their late twenties, early thirties can start with more of a maintenance approach. It is all about stopping issues from arising and keeping their ageing process at bay.

The idea is to keep patients unaffected by age and looking the same.

Botox can also be used as a solution to stop excessing sweating and odours from armpits. This is a popular use amongst men and is one of the most impactful non-cosmetic results that Botox can produce.

How Long Does it Last?

Botox can take anywhere from one to ten days to kick in and start working after the injections. This result will not last forever and is only a temporary fix for fine lines and wrinkles. Your results will depend on average last for about three or four months before your body regenerates new receptors that aren’t affected by the Botox.
