These days nobody seems to have grey hair or wrinkles, only a few decades ago our grandparents had to accept all of the transformations involved in ageing. Growing old gracefully was what was expected and the older generation even seemed to buy clothes designed specifically for the middle aged. Advances in beauty treatment such as Botox and hair dye means that you have a fighting chance of being able to look younger for longer. The disgraceful bit comes in when determining if the clothes you are wearing are appropriate, however if you plan to grow old disgracefully the more outlandish the better.
How Does Botox Banish Wrinkles?
First of all wrinkles are caused by the contraction of muscles Botox simple blocks the messages between nerves and muscles causing the muscle to relax. People mainly have Botox treatment on their foreheads, crows feet and frown lines. Botox is also used to relieve back pain and headaches due to its relaxing effect on the muscles. Botox is derived from the bacteria botulism, which is a form of food poisoning and one of the worst side effects is paralysis. Scientists realised that in very small diluted doses Botox could be used to treat wrinkles and its impact on the beauty industry has been phenomenal.
How Old Do You Have To Be To Have Botox?
There is no legal limit but doctors advise waiting until after you are thirty to have the procedure. Botox is a temporary solution to smoothing wrinkles and the procedure will have to be repeated every few months, depending on how quickly it is absorbed into the system. If you believe that Botox is the solution to your wrinkles then you will need to make sure that you can afford to keep going for treatment or you will be back to square one feeling disappointed that you are no longer wrinkle free.
