One time, when we went to a mall, we passed by in a dermatological clinic. She asked me then how much would it take for her to have body make-over. I answered her sarcastically, ‘why don’t you just ask the lady in the information desk and not me?‘ After she asked the lady, she then asked me, “you are a doctor ‘gay, could you please tell me how such medications work?”
Thence, I started my sermon. But before that, she emphasized that she wanted to have her tiny (unnoticeable) fine lines gone. Well, my friend just wanted to try botox injection.
Actually, botox injection (Botulinium toxin) is a medical treatment for frown lines to reduce the contraction temporarily of the aged facial muscles. Anybody can have it except for some exemptions like those pregnant and those who are prohibited by their medical doctors to do such for some complications. This is the reason also that before doing or having botox injection, it is advised to consult your medical doctors. Well, after injection, 4 to 7 days, there will already be visible improvement in the fine lines. However, effects could only last for 4 months, but off course results still vary from one another and after a period of time, the lines would still reappear.
There are a lot of possible side effects of botox injection like headache, nausea, there would be eyelid droop (although usually temporary), flu-like symptoms, muscle weakness, facial pain, redness of the injected area of the face and a lot more. And the most cautioned thing if planning to have botox injection is if you have have an (previous) infection where botox will be injected, (in any cases) allergic to any of the ingredients, pregnant or (even just) thinking you might be pregnant and most especially if you have a neurological disorder (for instance, Myasthenia Gravis).
So, think first before having botox injection.
