Botox® is a well-known product used mainly to eliminate facial wrinkling. Even though these treatments are now conventional, there are facts about them that are not well known. Here are some facts about Botox® that you probably did not know.
1. Botox® is put to better use when used before fine lines appear
You can use Botox® as a preventative measure against the formation of fine lines. When used before, the treated muscles learn to relax and remain so. Furthermore, the treated patient learns how not to make specific expressions that discourage wrinkling and the formation of fine lines. This helps the skin stay relaxed, and as such, you will require fewer of these treatments in the future or of a lesser dosage.
2. Botox® will not “freeze” your face
The injectable has gotten a bad reputation for making your face look frozen. In reality, this only happens when it is improperly administered. When receiving this treatment from a professional, the injection will limit movement of the muscles, not impair the movement completely.
3. Men also go for Botox® treatments
This injectable is not exclusively for women, and many men, even younger ones in their thirties, are going for Botox® treatments. Men who go for these treatments feel wrinkling on specific areas of their faces alters their expressions in ways they don’t like. These remodelings may make them look angry all the time, or older. One principal reason men opt for this treatment is that they want to socialize more. Botox® works well for men as it does ladies. It softens up their look and makes them look more easy going and friendly.
4. If you stop using Botox®, your wrinkles will not get worse
Botox® treatments are not permanent, and while you continue to get them, wrinkling does not worsen in the treated areas. However, should you feel you do not want to get more treatments, you should not be worried about your wrinkles looking worse than they did when you commenced the injections. This injectable is a naturally derived product, and it does not have any such adverse effects.
