How do celebrities keep their youthful looks?

Botox is a brand name toxin produced by the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. There are other brand names of botulinum , such as Xeomin & Disport. Scientist have discovered a way to use botulinum to our advantage. Small diluted amounts can be directly injected into specific muscles causing “controlled” weakening of the muscle.

The FDA approved such usage in the 1980’s upon the discovery that Botox could stop ailments like uncontrolled blinking and lazy eye. Doctors have also been using Botox for years to successfully treat wrinkles and facial creases. In addition to, moderate to severe frown lines between the eye brows – called glabellar lines. However Botox can be used for other areas of the face as well.

Botox blocks signals from nerves to the muscles. The injected muscle can no longer contract, which causes muscles to relax and soften. It is also a great preventive treatment to avoid creation of new lines.

As a result, it is most often used on the forehead lines, crows feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.

Getting Botox takes only a few minutes and no anesthesia is required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into the specific muscles with only minor discomfort.

It generally takes three to seven days to fully take effect. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications should be stopped two weeks before treatment as well in order to reduce bruising.

Look for services that offer best results, versus best pricing. Check that you are using a reputable expert for your Botox treatment.

We do not recommend shopping for your Botox based on price alone. Why? Because in the end, you are really paying for the experience, expertise, artistry, and judgment. The results you want, that give you a natural, relaxed, youthful, non injected appearance; is what you pay for at Elements.
