The miracle wrinkle remover and skin firming substance, Botox has been on the cosmetic market for years. Botox is a protein substance that is derived from botulism. This substance is injected subcutaneously or just under the skin with an extremely small needle. What botulism does is to paralyze the facial muscles in the area of the wrinkles, and this will smooth out the creases and wrinkle, making the facial skin smooth and younger looking. Botox will give the recipient a clean and smooth facial skin. Over the years Botox injections have become very popular with doctors and their patients alike. The number one reason is because it is a non-invasive procedure, with no down time. Whereas, a face lift has down time and a short period of recuperation. The face is bandaged, and there is extensive bruising and tissue swelling. The surgeon may also put stitches in place for at least a week. It generally takes several weeks for the facial lift patient to see their positive outcome. Botox has almost immediate results, and even though there is some swelling it will disappear in a few days, usually taking no more than 24 hours. Botox is safe, and the solution is sterile.
Compared with cost, Botox is very cost efficient making it otherwise more affordable for those who cannot afford a facial lift. Botox is so non invasive that some women have the procedure done on their lunch hour. Botox injections will only last for three to six months; every person is different, responding differently to the procedure. According to the Botox reviews most patients are thrilled with the results that take years off the person’s appearance. The trick to obtaining successful results is to discuss with Dr. Patel your troubled areas. Dr. Patel’s approach to correction is to keep it as natural as possible without overdoing it. Researchers have found that Botox has been successful in treating conditions other then wrinkles, such as, excessive underarm perspiration, neck pain, TMJ, and migraine headaches. If the patient has certain medical conditions they should not take Botox, such as myasthenia gravis, ALS, or Lambert Eaton syndrome.
