Appearance of fine lines around the face is a part of normal aging process. But most people do not like them because they not only reveal their age but also look aesthetically unpleasant. People have been trying various treatment options since ages to hide fine lines and wrinkles from the face and around the neck. They do succeed in finding some effective natural remedies to eliminate facial wrinkles, but they all need time and patience to take effect.
If you are looking for a quick fix then Botox is probably the most appropriate treatment option for you. These injections instantly clear away fine lines and wrinkles from your face and keep them from reappearing for at least 3 to four months. If you are not familiar with the term Botox; it is a naturally occurring neurotoxin produced by a microbe called Clostridium Botulinum. A highly diluted form of this toxin is used to treat various cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions. The most common use of Botox in Aesthetic Medicine is elimination of facial wrinkles. Nevertheless, doctors also use it to plump up sagging hog jowls and add fullness to the lips.
This treatment takes effect in less than 20 minutes, though maximum effect can be seen 7 to 10 days after getting the injection, when slight swelling and bruising at the injection site subsides. These injections offer the safest solution to unwanted forehead lines and do not have any downtime associated with them. Most patients get Botox shots during the lunch break hour and return right back to work. However, your doctor may ask you not to wear makeup or go out in direct sunlight for a couple of hours after getting the treatment.
