I’ve never had a Botox treatment before and I honestly don’t know if I’m ready for it hahaha.. I don’t think I need it yet but I’m not closing my doors coz lately I’ve been trying popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatments. When I do, I’ll cross the bridge when I get there lol.
For those who are not familiar with Botox, here’s a short description:
Botulism toxins are produced by bacteria of the genus Clostridium, namely Clostridium botulinum, C. butyricum, C. baratii and C. argentinense, which are widely distributed, including in soil and dust. As well, the bacteria can be found inside homes on floors, carpet, and countertops even after cleaning. Some food products such as honey can contain amounts of the bacteria.
Botulin toxin, sold commercially under the brand name Botox, is an exceptionally potent neurotoxin that has found a variety of remarkable uses in modern medicine. It is also the most popular nonsurgical medical cosmetic treatment in the UK and USA.
In cosmetic applications, injection of botulinum toxin can be used to prevent development of wrinkles by paralyzing facial muscles. Following treatment, results are usually seen within 3–5 days; however, it can take up to 2 weeks to see full results. – taken from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Botulinum_toxin
Reasons for wanting Botox treatments?
- eye muscle disorders like twitching
- head and neck neuromuscular disorders
- excessive sweating
- chronic migraine
- teeth grinding or jaw clenching
- allergic rhinitis
- cerebral palsy muscle spasms
- bladder incontinence
- to treat nagging lines and wrinkles
- and many more..
So you see, there are other uses for botox other than for cosmetic beautification. But, how come it’s so popular as a temporary wrinkle solution? Lots of Hollywood stars are into it and have been openly discussing it. Also available in Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons in several countries and places such as Chicago. You can even get this treatment at huge discounts!
Is Botox treatment for you?
I’m scared of needles and the sight of it makes my heart pump faster. If you think you can’t handle it, then it’s definitely not for you. But, there will be some who will brave it out just to have their problems solved like stated above including a temp cosmetic wrinkle free face.
If you really need it because of disorders such as irregular twitching of the eyes, too much sweating or chronic migraine, and the only available and budget-friendly way is for you to have a Botox treatment, then maybe you can gather up your courage and go for it.
Botox isn’t for everybody. It may be less costly than having invasive surgery, there are other factors that you should consider. Do extensive research, ask friends or relatives who have undergone the treatment, ask several cosmetic dermatologists, gather more information as much as possible before deciding on getting one done.
At the end of the day, it will be your final decision. If you’re a go, you can start checking these pages for discounted Botox treatments:
