Ageing – a privilege:

Some people are very adamant on not using any interceptive methods to reverse back visible ageing, but still,Botox is number one most commonly performed procedure globally. Botox has been used safely for cosmetic and therapeutic purposes all over the world for past two decades. In this article we will tell you how the get the most out of your Botox treatment and remain gracefully old for a long time.
How does Botox work?
Botox is a potent neuro-muscular relaxant which is obtained from Clostridium botulinum. When it is injected into the specific muscles, it blocks the production of acetylcholine; a neurotransmitter which sends nerve impulses to the muscles. When acetylcholine is blocked, the nerves cannot send impulses to the injected muscles, and as a result, the muscles do not contract. Typically, Botox is used to smoothen the fine lines and wrinkles on the upper part of the face, especially crow’s feet, glabellar lines and horizontal lines on the forehead. For the middle part of the face, dermal fillers are used to fill the folds and lines. While thread lifts are very efficient for the bottom of the face and neck region.
The secret to successful Botox:
1. Choose a qualified doctor:
The difference between an excellent Botox and a terrible Botox lies in the hands of your doctor. Before fixing your appointment, make sure that the person administering the injection is a board certified doctor and has undertaken certified Botox training courses. Plus, he should also have a comprehensive knowledge of the facial anatomy. Due diligence in this step is imperative. Just because a person is offering Botox treatment doesn’t mean that he or she is qualified or experienced to do so. Anyone can take a weekend Botox training course and consider themselves expert in the treatment. Botox is generally a very safe procedure, but in the hands of an inexperienced person, one wrongly administered injection could affect the muscles which were not meant to be touched. In all the stories of “frozen look” and “droopy eye lids”, Botox is not what happened to those people. The handiwork is a result of a novice doctor. In the hands of an experienced physician, after the treatment, your face should be as natural looking and as expressive as before.
2. Discuss, discuss, discuss:
Communication is the key to a successful Botox treatment. Let your chosen doctor know what your requirements and expectations from the treatment are. What you think is good and what your doctor thinks is good are two different things. It is imperative that the doctor understands your needs before administering the injections. The vaguer you are about the results, the greater will the chance of getting unexpected results. If you don’t have an idea about the areas that should be treated, ask your doctor to advise you and make sure that you understand them. On this note, keep your expectations realistic and don’t expect unrealistic things to happen to your face with just one session.
3. Beware of the cheap deals:
Being frugal is very good in other aspects of life. But when it comes to Botox, you get what you pay for. With Botox, the cheaper the deal is, the shadier it will be. You should be aware of the spas selling you good deals because most probably, they will be cutting corners. Before administering, Botox has to be diluted with normal saline. Only trained medical professionals know the correct dilutions that will be safe and work. Non-professionals, to cut corners, may dilute the Botox heavily and as a result, you will be getting less amount of Botox in a session. The results which are possible with one session will take two to three sessions to appear. Secondly, incorrect and heavy dilution will make Botox diffuse more into the muscles, and you can end up with the frozen look due to the passage of Botox into the neighbouring muscles.
4. Take care of your skin:
Botox will only help you so much as long as you take good care of your skin. If you are thinking that you can get the Botox done and then forget about the skin care regimen, then you are in for a disappointment. Not only your Botox will last for a shorter period of time, but your skin will also look more haggled than ever. Wear sunscreen regularly, keep yourself hydrated and exercise daily to get maximum effects of Botox.
