Today not only women, but even men are conscious of their looks, especially as they age. Sometime back, men would jus scoff at ladies seeing the females going to any lengths to maintain their beauty. As we know, this is the metrosexual era where men are not lagging behind in the field of grooming and physical appearance, in fact they too are extremely cautious of their physical appearance. So, men and women are embracing the Botox treatment as they get older.

Botox is a kind of toxin which is injected into the skin which paralyzes the facial muscles which is the cause of wrinkle formation. Once it is injected, the muscles can no longer be used, however one gets smoother and lifted skin. So if you are considering to give yourself a dose or two of botox, think twice before taking the final decision. We would ask you to read a few pros and cons of Botox mentioned below.

If you have eye wrinkles caused by frowning and usage of facial muscles, botox can help you out. Botox helps in fixing up the crow’s lines which are formed around the eye area. And this helps in giving your face a well-rested and rejuvenated appearance. Also it will add a lot of brightness to your face instantly.

Once the muscles which are responsible for causing wrinkles have been paralysed, you can look more happy and less upset. As you look happier, more people would want to be your friends and chat up with you. If your facial features expresses boredom then possibly not many people would dare to talk to you and they would be staying away from you.

Though wrinkles conveys the message to the whole world, that you have gained in a lot of wisdom and experiences throughout the years, but those are the signs of ageing, which no one can ignore. And in this case, Botox injections will erase those signs of ageing and give you a younger look. But then you must also be able to pull off the youthful appearance too.

Cons of Botox –

When we age, not only wrinkles and fine lines start surfacing on the skin, but we need to deal with other signs of ageing too like spots, blemishes, pigmentation and also dryer skin. Botox fixes wrinkles only, it cannot treat the other skin problems.

Botox is a toxin, which means a poison. The natural state of it is highly toxic or poisonous, and the full name of botox is clostridium botulinum toxin type A. However, the botox used to be injected on the skin is the purified and sterile form of the natural state of the substance. So, just prepare your mind for it, if you are comfortable, go ahead.

Generally botox users get addicted towards the procedure and may go overboard. And in the end the result can be ghastly, since extra dosage of botox can make you look like an expressionless person.

In this fast-evolving era, where taboos are becoming fashion and trends, it is upto you to decide what you want to do and what you don’t want to do. And when it comes to botox injections, it is more of a personal choice. Decide for yourself before you take any decision whether to go for it or not.

    The cosmetic effect of BTX-A on wrinkles was originally documented by a plastic surgeon from Sacramento, California, Dr. Richard Clark, and published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 1989. Canadian husband and wife ophthalmologist and dermatologist physicians, JD and JA Carruthers, were the first to publish a study on BTX-A for the treatment of glabellar frown lines in 1992. Similar effects had reportedly been observed by a number of independent groups (Brin, and the Columbia University group). After formal trials, on April 12, 2002, the FDA announced regulatory approval of botulinum toxin type A (Botox Cosmetic) to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). Subsequently, cosmetic use of botulinum toxin type A has become widespread, with many celebrities viewing it as less intrusive and/or artificial than other types of plastic surgery. The results of cosmetic procedures vary, but can last up to eight months. The US Food and Drug Administration approved an alternative product-safety testing method in response to increasing public concern that LD50 testing was required for each batch sold in the market.
