Everything You Need to Know About Botox in Essex

Wondering where to get Botox in Essex? Before you go running off to the nearest salon, make sure you stop and learn everything you can about Botox. Here are the benefits and potential side effects:
Botox is the purified form of Botulinum A Toxin. Although it has been deemed safe for medical use for 20 years, it was only approved for cosmetic use by the US FDA seven years ago. By working on the nerves under the injected area, Botox prevents muscle contractions – the same ones that cause wrinkles. It has been proven to be effective in treating dynamic wrinkles – or those wrinkles that only appear when you move. More recently, it has also been found to also be effective in preventing wrinkles, although it has to be done 2 to 4 times a year to maximize benefits.
The benefits of Botox vary from person to person. To some, looking young may just provide a boost of confidence. To others, especially those whose careers are dependent on their looks – and they’re not all actresses and models – it’s a way for them to keep their jobs. In modern society, there is a certain pressure to look young. Botox and other treatments make this possible.
You should also be aware of the potential side effects, before getting Botox in Essex. Botox can cause migraines. Also, bruising and pain may occur on the site of the injection. In less than 1% of the cases, it has been found that eyebrows and eyelids returned to their natural position after a few months.
Here are some tips to help you in your Botox experience:
To prevent much bruising, stay away from Aspirin and Ibuprofen a couple of weeks before the treatment. These thin the blood and increase bleeding, which in turn causes bruises.
Also, make sure you get the treatment from experienced professionals. Dermatologists are your best bet. Some cosmetic dentists also offer this treatment. These medical and dental professionals can provide the sterile environment and sufficient skill that your treatment requires. Avoid getting your Botox injections from salons that cannot vouch for the skill and training of their staff.
Getting Botox in Essex may just be what you need to look and feel young. Just the same, it would be wise to know your options and consider the pros and cons of each. This way, you would be making an informed choice and not be just following a fad.


Botulinum Toxin Treatment – After Care Instructions.

Sunday, July 11th, 2010

You should frown repeatedly for about one hour immediately following the treatment. This will help the treatment to be more effective by increasing the uptake by the targeted muscle groups.

Do not rub the treated areas, stay upright for at least 4 hours and try to avoid sleeping on your face for the first night.

You can gently apply light makeup after the treatment but use a light dabbing motion instead of rubbing or spreading motion for the first day.

Do not have any facial treatments for 7 days after treatment as they may cause ‘ tracking’ of the Botox/Vistabel/Dysport/Azzalure to neighbouring areas.

Side effects of this treatment are rare. Occasionally, temporary drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow may occur, which usually lasts for a few weeks and if longer. will resolve when the effects of the toxin wear off.
