Botox Before and After

We’ve all seen Botox before and after pictures. This non-surgical injectable procedure is one of the most popular for treating facial wrinkle – probably because benefits of Botox are seen within a few days.

Depending on the amount injected the depth of muscle and the depth of the wrinkles, Results become apparent usually within 1-5 days and can last several months.

The benefits of Botox include smoother skin and a reduction of twitches due to neurological conditions.

Lasting for several months, these positive effects treat conditions that are more serious than wrinkles including chromic back and neck pain.

Knowing that, however, you should also know some background into this popular anti-aging treatment.

Originally used on people with crossed eyes caused by muscular contractions, Botox is a non-surgical procedure in wrinkle reduction used since 2002. So how does Botox work?

How Does Botox Work?

Created from Botulinum toxin A, which is one of the toxins produced by the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, Botox works by causing paralysis of the muscles of the face. The bacterium is also one of the causes of food poisoning.

Found in poorly cooked or prepared food, as well as in food products that have begun to spoil, the first serious attempts to understand it took place in Germany in the late 1800’s.

The effects of the bacteria when ingested are paralysis of multiple muscle groups throughout the body.

When examined in depth, the toxins that cause this paralysis were isolated and refined, eventually becoming part of accepted medical pharmacology during the 1980s.

When you go for a Botox treatment your doctor performs a set of injections into key muscles around the eyes, forehead and mouth. The resulting relaxation gives the skin a smoother appearance.

In other treatments, the drug relaxes uncontrolled spasms in respiratory conditions, eases blepharospasm (eye twitching) and several other conditions that require suppression of nervous activity prevents muscle contractions.

There are risks you should know about. Side effects of using Botox are usually mild for most people including:

  • redness
  • bruising
  • irritation at the injection site

Most people just treat the area with ice packs, the same way you would any other bruise.

Because some people’s immune systems will react to the presence of Botox as an infection, there are cases where flu like fevers and chills occur. In the worst scenarios – and very rare situations - patients develop respiratory problems, difficulty swallowing and muscle weakness or loss of control.

You should know I've tried a few serums that help reduce the look of those crinkly lines under the eyes. Some even helped reduce the look of puffy or saggy under eye skin.

It is a topical application and is only temporary, but I put it on everyday like I would my makeup and moisturizer.
