Cosmetic industry also handles some cases of surgery but this is specifically for cosmetic purposes and one of the products that are usually used especially in the treatment of wrinkles on the face is the botulinum toxin type A which is commercially known as Botox. The original concentration of Botox immediately after extraction from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria is harmful, and therefore before it is injected under the skin for cosmetic treatment purposes, it should be diluted to the safe level first.
Botulinum toxin type A is used during the cosmetic treatment to get rid of the frown lines and some instances the creases by simply injecting the muscles of the face with small quantities of this chemical. The nervous system also produces some chemicals through the nerve cells, and these chemicals act in a way that causes the development of frown lines on the face because of the tightening of the facial muscles, and therefore the Botox helps to avert this situation by weakening and loosening up these muscles causing the skin to have a smooth appearance all over again.
Other benefits of the use of Botox include the removal of crows feet that are usually seen around an individual’s eyes, creases surrounding the mouth as well as blocking the formation of wrinkles on the forehead, and during application of the Botox on the face so that these functions can be facilitated, an individual can give their natural facial expressions without any struggles because this procedure makes one feel so much relaxed. Botox treatment is known because it has been in use for quite some time now and therefore it is safe for individuals who qualify for it exempting the pregnant women or those breastfeeding, and when the individual performing it is a professional.
The small injection of Botox that is given is usually not painful and therefore one need not be given an anesthesia, and also the procedure is very quick. Despite the minor headaches that might be experienced by an individual who goes through the procedure, the recovery period is very short, and this depends on how an individual will take precaution with regards to following the instructions given by the specialist.
The most common side effect that is known to arise after the procedure involve the slight headache that does not last for a long time, as well as the mild bruising that may occur. At the point one decides to undergo the procedure, they should do some research so that they can get an appropriate surgeon to take them through the procedure.
