- Botox relaxes facial muscles which are responsible for new wrinkles. It is superior to all other volumizing treatments for vertical frown lines between eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines and crow's feet forming around your eyes. It can also be used to treat lines around your mouth, along your nose, and on your neck. Botox does not cause allergic reactions so no testing is required prior to the injections.
- The good news is, that needles used for botox injections are thinner than a hair and recovery does not involve gradually resuming normal activities. You can go out the same evening, looking a bit younger than in the morning!
- Risk and complications
- Every surgery carries some risk. In order to minimise any possible risk of complications, you must provide the surgeon with all details relating to your health, especially if you smoke, are on medication or have undergone a surgery in or around the area which is to be operated upon. You can minimise the risk significantly by choosing a well-qualified and experienced plastic surgeon and by strictly following their advice before and after the surgery. Although currently all plastic surgery procedures are very safe, your surgeon will discuss any possible, although unlikely, complications in connection with your treatment.
