The Benefits And Side Effects Of Wrinkle Treatments

Jun 2, 2008
Botox Injections are a quick way to painlessly get rid of crow's feet, frown lines, and brow lines on your face. Botox has become very popular in recent years, especially because it's relatively inexpensive. This treatment is often used in addition to other facial plastic surgeries to enhance the final look. Botox injections are very safe, however, there are several side effects you should be aware of.

The side effects may include numbness or tingling at the location of the injection, some swelling or bruising around the injection, an allergic reaction to the product, lack of results after treatment, temporary headache, nausea, drooping eyebrow or eyelid (this can last for 2-3 weeks, but it's temporary), and flu-like symptoms. The good news is, you can avoid a lot of these Botox side effects by seeing a specialist who knows the proper techniques for injection.

Another way to avoid some of the common Botox side effects is to refrain from rubbing the injection area for about 12 hours after the procedure has been completed. Botox side effects are less of a concern if you visit an experienced and qualified cosmetic surgeon who has carried out many Botox procedures over the years. If you do some research on surgeons in your area, you should be able to find someone who knows Botox inside and out.

Botox injections have been performed for many years to erase facial lines and wrinkles on millions of people. Most Botox side effects are mild and shouldn't be a concern - the procedure is not a risky one for most people. Most of the time minor bruising is the only problem, and this disappears quickly - use concealer makeup to cover the bruises until they go away. The reason for temporary drooping right after Botox injections is that the Botox sometimes spreads to nearby muscles.

Botox treatment costs less than you might expect - the affordable prices are a result of the ease of implementing this procedure and the number of treatments that surgeons carry out on patients. Again, Botox treatment is quite safe, but it may react with some herbal remedies, antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, as well as heart and Alzheimer drugs. If you're thinking of getting Botox, consider the possible complications before going for the treatment.

Before most treatments, you will be asked for a list of all the prescription and over-the-counter medications that you're taking or have taken recently. This is to ensure you don't suffer any adverse side effects and become ill after the injections. If you have a neuromuscular disease, you should not have a treatment.

Costs for these treatments can vary, but it 's a relatively inexpensive procedure. It doesn't take very long to receive a Botox injection, and most people don't experience any discomfort during the procedure. As the years go by, prices for injections are expected to become even more affordable for the average person.

It's important to know that people with a neuromuscular disease shouldn't take Botox - neither should pregnant women nor nursing mothers.
