You’ve probably heard of many Hollywood celebrities, both men and women, getting Botox injections for wrinkles. They seem to be the miracle cure, judging by the porcelain smooth skin you so often see on television and in the movies.
It seems as if everyone is trying them, and since these injections seem to have such good results, what’s wrong with trying them? What’s the latest news on getting Botox injections for wrinkles?
Since everything in the world has a risk, it is safe to say that getting Botox injections for wrinkles done definitely has risks. Botox originated from a certain type of poison that was utilized during wars on many occasions. Botox is able to get rid of wrinkles by paralyzing muscles, which then makes them basically impossible to move.
Today, the Botox injections for wrinkles are definitely not as potent, and the poison does not paralyze the muscles as much. Botox only paralyzes the muscles located under the skin where it is injected. This makes it so that lines and creases in the skin cannot form. Botox injections are not given in areas around the eyes and or any other place on the face because it could make facial expressions seem very unnatural.
However there are many words of warning that one should consider before running out and putting themselves under the needle. Especially lately have there been warnings about Botox injections for wrinkles, as it seems some have suffered severe side effects from these and there have even been some deaths linked to this treatment.
This could be explained because Botox injections for wrinkles only used to be allowed to be given by a licensed physician or dermatologist; however, today, aestheticians that work in beauty salons have begun to give Botox injections. Many of these aestheticians do not have the experience of knowing how to correctly inject the substance, especially into skin that isnt as firm as some peoples.
Sadly, some of these people were even unlicensed and highly uneducated on how to properly give Botox injections for wrinkles. These people treated this procedure as if it was something simple and easy that anyone can do.
A few years back, people have even held Botox parties. These Botox parties would be held in a private home were these injections were given out like party gifts and glasses of wine. This is very unsafe.
It would seem unwise to have a lethal poison injected into your system by anyone, much less by someone that was not very educated or capable of doing this. Botox injections for wrinkles are not just another salon treatment and are not as simple as a facial or massage.
Botox injections for wrinkles are very serious treatments that should and need to be taken seriously. No one but a licensed physician or dermatologist (like Dr. Brian Evans MD) should be carrying out the procedure. It is also important to consider the side effects and costs of Botox injections. While some of the procedures are highly effective and successful, not all of them are, and the risks may outweigh the good.
Understanding these risks is very important before getting Botox injections for wrinkles. Speak to a professional before you decide to go along with the procedures. If you choose to get Botox injections for wrinkles, make sure that the person administering them is licensed, experienced, professional, and educated.
