Botox, the advantages and disadvantages?

Increasingly, and in our "ordinary" women opt for botox treatment Wrinkle 

Botox injections have become a part of the lives of local celebrities, and we should not talk to hardly have hollywudske icons that are not "botoksira" or at least not repeatedly tried to rejuvenate your appearance.But Botox has become increasingly common and more popular among us, "ordinary" mere (and here is the so-called Botox parties are held), and many women rush to cosmetic surgeons to try the treatment. While treatment can have real benefits, not only for beauty but also health, it's always good to know the positive and negative sides before making a decision.

If we should hit that beauty and rejuvenation in the last few years on the rise, we would definitely opt for smoothing wrinkles botox. Well, after all, recently opened in downtown Zagreb specialized center which offers lower facial aesthetic surgery (botox treatments or filler lip) and where after about fifteen minutes, you can get "refurbished". No matter how confusing it was, thousands of people will gladly pay that somebody in the face inject venom that can paralyze facial muscles to six months.

About Botox

Botox, or botulinum toxin A is a substance synthesized from the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, which can cause severe food poisoning and untreated can cause death. This toxin is purified and injected into facial muscles, causing temporary muscle paralysis by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses and creating a smooth skin surface. Paralysis lasts 3 - 6 months, then the muscle back to its original state and thus fight back. However, if the procedure is carried out regularly, the younger persons (under 40 years) can result in the permanent disappearance of wrinkles because the skin is renewed on a smooth background and time alone in the dermis wrinkles disappear.

The positive side

Because of the relatively non-invasive and painless treatment that takes only a few tens of minutes - Botox is many men and women are often better and easier option than plastic surgery facelift. But besides giving a youthful appearance and smoothing wrinkles (wrinkles between the eyebrows, around the eyes, lips, on the forehead, neck) Botox is also used to obtain fuller lips look. In addition to medicine has been used for more than 2 decades. Botox injections are used for pain in the neck, back and head, for blepharospasm, or strabismus ophthalmopathy and various neurological conditions for which there is a contraction (eg cerebral palsy) and Parkinson's disease. It also helps with migraines and excessive sweating in, and explore the possibilities and its further use.

The negative side

Botox treatments are not cheap - 300 to several thousand (often a figure of the several thousand) depending on the affected area, and only takes a few months after which the skin returns to its original state. And there are other possible consequences caused by improper application and dosage. There may be a severe allergic reaction or muscle paralysis (frozen face), falling eyelids, eyebrows, eye muscle ... And if injected in the neck or in the lower part of the face, it is possible to numb the muscles that allow you to speak and swallow, which can be life threatening. Lethal dose was calculated at about 3000 U (units) for a weight of 70 kg, which is about 50 - 100 times more than the doses used for cosmetic purposes. The maximum recommended dose that is used for severe spastic state, 400 U.

So as with other drugs - and Botox can be a good or a bad thing, just a matter of who is going to apply it, how much, and for what. In the hands of a responsible doctor he can not only help you look better, but also help with a range of problems already listed. And whatever anyone says, it is clear that its use will not decrease, but proven, year after year the number of people who will be treated, until they find a new elixir of youth, happy to hop on an occasional injections to maintain a youthful appearance.
