If you are around 40 and just started noticing those streaks of lines, wrinkles on the forehead, at corners of the eyes and on the cheek bones – get your Botox done, right now.

Botox injections are muscle relaxers made from botulinum toxin type A, neurotoxin protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. This temporarily paralyses muscles around the injected area and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Several studies prove that Botox is a simple, safe and effective cosmetic treatment for reducing wrinkles, lines on the face. However, if you are planning to go for the treatment, this is all you should know.

It Won’t Wipe Out Wrinkles:

Botox injections do not wipe out or erase wrinkles permanently. It is in fact more preventive than being helpful in restoring the youthfulness of your skin. The active ingredient in botox keeps facial muscles ‘intact’ preventing it from getting deeper lines and wrinkles.

It’s Not Permanent:

A botox treatment will not cure your wrinkle worries forever. The effects of Botox stay for around 3 to 4 months and for people with expressive face, it may stay on for even lesser period.

It’s Not Very Hurtful:

And if you thought, Botox injections are very painful, it’s not. The prick may be a little more intense than the regular injections and the painful sensation may last for more than half an hour. Doctors suggest applying icepack on the treated area.

It Feels Good:

Once Botox starts working, you may find yourself beautiful and prettier sans those wrinkles. According to studies, people who had Botox treatments feel very positive, confident about their looks.

Not Only Celebs:

Botox treatments are not only for Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities. It is becoming quite popular in India and dermatologists are recommending it for those under 30 as a preventive measure to avoid wrinkles, lines on the face.
