I remembered hearing about Botox treatment and at that time I thought that only celebrities or those whose career depended on their appearance go for this type of treatment. As we all know, celebrities have to maintain their looks and they will go through all means to be able to stay young and beautiful to be in great demand.
Let me share what I have learned about Botox from what I have read from this website called Medical Departures. It says that Botox when injected into the muscles, it paralyses the muscles rather than poisons the muscles. The relaxing effect on the muscles makes people look much younger and Botox has been successfully used in the treatment of medical conditions e.g. migraines, muscle spasms, squints and excessive sweating.
What got me reading about Botox all of a sudden? It all started when I met an aunt at a large family gathering at my great uncle’s birthday celebration. She is in her mid-sixties but she didn’t look one little bit her age. In fact, I would say that she looks more like in her forties. There is not a wrinkle on her face. I have not seen her for more than twenty years and yet she still look exactly the same as when I last saw her.
It was almost towards the end of the celebration when we were all enjoying the birthday cake, the secret was unveiled. Her youthful look has been maintained by a treatment called dermal filler treatment. Since she travels abroad regularly for her holidays, she takes advantage of her oversea trips to have the treatment done at the same time.
What is dermal filler treatment? Dermal filler treatment helps to replace fat and collagen loss in our skin, which happens to us all as we age. This loss in volume causes the skin to sag, and to form lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers can help to improve lines and wrinkles and helps give the face a youthful look. And to cut the story short, this was how I was led to Medical Departures and started reading about Botox and Dermal Filler treatment.
