Beauty Injections 2: Paralyzing Agents

These types of substances literally paralyze your muscle; therefore, expression lines and some wrinkles cannot form. The best places for administration of these types of agents are the forehead, the lines between the eyes above the nose, around the eyes, and around the mouth. Continue below




So if you have frown lines or other expression lines, Botox and similar agents can solve these problems. Botox is the only paralyzing agent approved by the FDA at the time of the publication of this article (2005), but there are other options outside the USA.   

What is Botox?
Botox has been there for a long time. It is a toxin that has been used for years for medicinal purposes. It was accidentally discovered in Canada to treat wrinkles and expression lines. Small doses of Botox are introduced into targeted areas, therefore, preventing the muscle from contracting, and thus, reducing wrinkle appearance.    

This is the first treatment we have available and still the best known and most widely used to paralyze the muscle and make our skin look tight in some areas. Although it is considered safe, there are not studies of the long-term effects of Botox. 

What does Botox do for you?
It will make some wrinkles and expression lines disappear with one shot. Botox has a temporary effect. The treatment needs to be repeated every 3 to 4 months. There is no down time when you Botox. The full effect of Botox shots will take place a couple of days after the application and can take even a week.

Some people say that Botox works so well that they get "hooked" after the first application. Almost all Hollywood actresses are reportedly using Botox. Even young people in theirs 20s now use Botox, particularly if they need to look perfect. That is why in cities like Los Angeles and New York, use of Botox is widespread.

Botox works best in the forehead, around the eyes, and around the mouth, but it is used in many other places too.

The cost varies by the region in which it is applied and the cost ranges from $250 to $600 per treated area. 

It is also used to treat excessive sweating in the armpits.
