Staring in the mirror and wishing for a healthy and youthful looking skin is something that everybody desires for it. When our reflection in the mirror no longer shows the healthy, smooth, wrinkle-free skin that we used to have our mind races with ideas how to turn back the clock and get back a healthy, pigment free and tighter skin.
Over time, skin begins to show the effects of aging. Factors like sun, gravity and hormones can speed up the aging process. The collagen found in the skin begins to break down and result in fine lines around the eyes and lips, deeper lines and grooves in the brow, and much more. Overtime, the face loses that youthful and vibrant appearance.
Different factors such as smoking, sun exposure and tanning, genes, sleep habits, a diet high in sugar and refined carbohydrates, alcohol and caffeine intake, environment, and stress can cause premature aging. While it is hard to completely escape the ageing process, there are ways to slow it down.
Cosmetic fillers and Botox may have been mentioned in advertisements, blogs, and celebrity gossip magazines, or you may have heard about it from friends. However, there are many misconceptions about Botox and filler treatments and how they are used.
Botox acts as a temporary solution by interrupting the nerve impulse to the muscles and paralyses them, which in turn prevents the skin from “wrinkling” over it. But in other side, it produces a ‘Frozen or unnatural’ looking and in the long-term applications, it leads to a permanent paralysis and muscle atrophy. This is the point that the dermal fillers will be added to the treatments to fill up the atrophic areas and plump it. Dermal fillers work differently, plumping up the tissues so that lines and wrinkles diminish or disappear with the artificial chemicals.
Beside of short lifetime and being temporary, Potential Botox side effects include pain at the injection site, infection, inflammation, swelling, redness, bleeding, and bruising. Some of these symptoms may indicate an allergic reaction; other allergy symptoms are itching, wheezing, asthma, a rash, red welts, dizziness, and faintness. Botox and fillers cannot last more than 4-6 months. You must repeat the injections back-to-back and the skin gets inflamed with the fibrotic attachments. At this point, your face looks like a balloon, filled up with many chemical substances with an unnatural and unhealthy appearance.
