Considering Botox?

The people who have doubts about Botox often have concerns about injecting a poison INTO THEIR FACE.

They worry about looking frozen and the expense. So to put your mind at ease, I put this post together. I hope it answers all your questions and concerns!

When you're considering Botox, think about the following:

Botox has an excellent safety record

Botulinum toxin type A/B injections (including Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) are the most common cosmetic procedure performed worldwide with nearly 3 million injections per year.

Botox is an extract of Clostridium botulinum, a bacteria found in soil which causes paralysis in humans. This extract works beautifully to cause long lasting paralysis of the muscles that cause wrinkles without causing botulism. The effects, that can be so deadly in botulism, are desirable in Botox Cosmetic.

When Botox Cosmetic is injected into the muscles around the eyes, those muscles are temporarily paralyzed and cannot contract for about 4 months. This causes the wrinkles around the eyes to go away for the length of the paralysis.

Recent studies have shown that Botox Cosmetic injections increased elasticity and pliability of the skin, although after four months, the skin had gone back to its previous state.

Still thinking twice about being injected with a toxin?

Today we use many medications that come from toxins.

Aspirin is made from willow bark. It is used daily by many to prevent and minimize the risk of heart attack, but if used in large amounts, can cause fatal bleeding.

Saffron is one of the most expensive spices in the world. It comes from the crocus, a beautiful spring flower bulb, but when taken in excess is a poison.

Nitroglycerin used in dynamite is the same nitroglycerin that relieves chest pain in heart patients - the difference lies in the dilution.

So you see, although it is derived from a toxin, when used properly with recommended dosing, Botox is extremely safe. The small amounts of Botox that are injected into the muscles of the face have a very low risk of complications. The most common risks are usually temporary and include bruising and swelling around the injection site. 

In 1 - 5% of cases, there can be a droop to the eyelid or brow, which usually goes away within two weeks.
