Over time, our looks fade, it's a part of the natural aging process. Sometimes we don't notice aging. Sometimes we notice all of a sudden. Many people consider plastic surgery but decide that going under the knife a little too drastic. If you are feeling a little worse for wear, Botox is a great option to rejuvenate your looks without spending a fortune of undergoing invasive surgery. Botox provides a compromise that reverses the signs of aging process without a large output of expense, time or risk.

Botox is nothing new, it's a naturally occurring protein and has been used to treat muscle spasms since the 1960's. The discovery of Botox as a treatment for aging was quite by accident, patients being treated for face spasms noticed a major improvement in the appearance of their wrinkles.

Botox injections work to decrease the signs of aging by weakening, or paralyzing, selected muscles in your face. This allows the skin around them to flatten out, diminishing wrinkles. Only in severe cases does Botox stop you from being able to make particular facial expressions. If Botox brings to mind images of celebrities with that plastic doll look, know that these are very severe cases. It takes a lot of Botox to reach this stage. Most people who use Botox don't really look that different from the rest of us, just a little more younger, fresher and rejuvenated.

In Australia, Botox must be prescribed by a qualified medical doctor and administered by a trained professional. When performed by a qualified medical professional, Botox injections are completely safe. While Botox is a toxin, the miniscule amounts required are safe. Finding the right practitioner to administer Botox is integral. There are several shady operators out there, so make sure the one you chose is legitimate. Ask for referrals from friends or do your own research before hand. Botox Sydney is quite common, there are plenty of practitioners in the city area.

About three days after your Botox injections you'll start to notice the difference. At fourteen days the process peaks. Don't worry if your face seems a little too tight or pulled. A few days later the results will subside to how they looked at about ten days after the injections. Botox lasts for between three and six months, the results varying between the individual. You do need to go back for follow up appointments. In Sydney Botox practitioners are many, so you cab find one that is convenient for you so follow up appointments are easy.

Some people experience swelling or bruising from the injection and a small amount of people report feeling nauseous or light headed. These side effects are temporary and only experienced by a small number of people.

Some people love the results of Botox so much, they stick with it for life. A thirteen year study of two identical twins, one who had Botox injections over the course of the study and the other who did not, showed that not only does Botox reduce the appearance of existing wrinkles, it also stops new ones from appearing.
