Wrinkles? Gone with 'Botox' !

Updated on March 13, 2013

Wrinkles, before and after 'Botox' treatment.

Wrinkles can be made to disappear !

Wrinkles are lines which appear on the face when you frown, talk or even smile. They can be quite disfiguring and annoying. Doctors have now discovered a unique way of treating them using ' Botox'. Botox is a short name for Botulinum toxin extracted from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. Botox treatment for wrinkles involves injecting very small amounts of the purified toxin into the wrinkle lines. After 2 or 3 days the muscles that cause wrinkles lose their ability to contract and your wrinkles are not seen anymore! However the effect gradually decreases and the muscles return to normal after about six months. The wrinkles may then gradually reappear. Therefore the treatment needs to be repeated every six months. The downside to this wonder therapy is that the treatment is costly and your insurance wont pay for it since it comes under ' Cosmetic ' therapy.

      I read this post and thought it was good. I am just one of those people that has a difficult time accepting the fact that I am getting older. My body is aging and the evidence everywhere. I can definitely see it happening with my skin. And noticeable new wrinkles showing up on my face. I recently started to learn about all the different options for facial wrinkles.
