So many women and even some men dislike the signs of aging such as wrinkles and sagging that show in their faces, that they seek Botox Melbourne treatment. Such treatment usually takes care of wrinkles around the outer corners of the eyes – or crows’ feet as they are often called – vertical lines above the top lip and many other wrinkle sites on the face.
Some people think that a Botox injection is a filler, but it is not. There are dermal fillers that are injected into facial areas to remove wrinkles, but Botox is not one of them. Rather, this substance works to paralyse the muscles of the face so that they cannot sag and produce wrinkles. Don’t be shocked; the muscle paralysis is so minute that you will not get a frozen face look. The effects of the injections are not permanent either, so you can expect to need more treatment in about six months.
In a way this is a good thing because if the results were not what you wanted or expected you might consider trying something else such as microdermabrasion – under the advice and guidance of your skin care professional, of course. However, most people must be quite satisfied with it or it would not have topped the popularity list.
Other facial treatments to remove wrinkles include such procedures as microdermabrasion, filler injections and face lift surgery. It is always wise to go for the least invasive procedure first. That is why injections are so popular. Not all face and skin types are suited to all treatment types. Some people have really thin skin while others have lots more facial muscle.
Tests have shown that those with a smaller muscle mass in their faces have the best results than others, but that is not to say others should not try the Botox treatment. There is still an 80% success rate for them, so it is well worth pursuing. Dermal filler injections, laser skin rejuvenation, fat transfer and facial peels are other options for those whose facial wrinkles are caused by sun damage or aging. It is possible that they will work even better than Botox and they will certainly help to reduce problems such as spider veins.
Even though complications are rare, no matter what treatment you decide on make sure it is done by a qualified and experienced medical doctor for the best results.
