Botox: wrinkle treatment for all ages
Wrinkles are a normal sign of ageing, but with the increased available of BOTOX, many women are opting for this non-surgical treatment more than ever. BOTOX® is the commercial trade name for Botulinum Toxin Type A an anti-wrinkle treatment which smooth’s lines for men and women. The procedure involves a series of injections and the results last for a few months, after which the treatment can be ‘topped up’.
The treatment is a natural purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum Bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause lines to form over time. It works by temporarily reducing the contractions of those muscles that can cause permanent lines to create a smoothed, rejuvenated appearance. When injected into a muscle, it temporarily blocks the chemical signals that make the muscle contract. Only minute quantities of BOTOX are injected and only the injected muscle will be affected.
BOTOX is popular for all ages and is being used by men and women from 18-65. This treatment is extremely quick and effective, which has seem many surgeries offering ‘lunchtime treatments’. It is important to take BOTOX slowly; too many treatments may lead to what many people state as an addiction to the procedure.
