Over the last decade, there has been a huge rise in the media exhibiting and endorsing celebrities who have had various forms of nips and tucks, surgeries and procedures. One form of treatment which has gained increased popularity is Botox. Seen as the magic elixir of youth, Botox treatment is a widely sought after specialist treatment.
Botox has actually been around for many years and has multiple uses for both cosmetic and medical purposes. Botox being a non invasive, temporary form of treatment with very little downtime and recovery period has become part of many peoples’ beauty regimes.
In the western world where being youthful and beautiful is constantly chased due to the media consistently bombarding us with images of ‘perfection’, Botox is not just a treatment sought by the ‘rich and famous’ but this prescription only medicine, which can only being administered by a medical professional has made its way from celebrities to the everyday woman and man.
Celebrities, professionals and the everyday yummy mummy have all added the bi-yearly visit to the doctor for their Botox injection to their calendar.
Botox is injected into certain muscles in the face to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles giving the person a fresher and smoother appearance. It can help alleviate that tired, stressed looked when injected around certain muscles around the eye, erasing the signs of constant frowning and giving that open doe-eyed look that some women have lost through age. Botox can also help tighten the jawline and improve a ‘turkey-neck’ when injected which can be good alternative for the individual who cannot yet afford the surgical approach to treatment.
Along with its well publicised cosmetic benefit, Botox is also sought out by individuals who suffer from embarrassing excessive sweating. Botox was FDA approved for excessive underarm sweating known as axillary hyperhidrosis in 2004 and when used in this manner can help restore peoples’ self confidence in otherwise embarrassing social situations.
So is Botox just for celebrities? Perhaps once upon a time, but now Botox is for everybody and it’s here to stay. For Botox in Essex and London visit the clinic of Dr Anita Dhunna.
