Cosmetic Botox: To Seek a Professional or an at Home Party?

 

    Wrinkles are more complicated than you may think. There are those that are transient, occurring when you raise your eyebrows or frown at your spouse. As soon as you relax they disappear. But over time, when the skin is moved and pleated repeatedly by muscle activity, those wrinkles become more permanent.

    Botox is remarkably safe and effective at relaxing facial muscles and preventing active wrinkles. You should also know that Botox helps prevent permanent wrinkles from getting started in the first place. If your skin is not put in a position to wrinkle to begin with, it stays smooth and young looking. Permanent furrows are not allowed to get started and facial skin retains its youthful appearance.

 

Is Botox for Men or Women?

 

    Younger looking skin is a positive for men and women personally and professionally. And Botox is a part of that effort in addition to cleansing and moisturizing with the right skin care products. The effects of this very short and surprisingly easy procedure last up to 3 months.

 

But a friend is having a Botox party at her house? Should I go?

 

    Believe it or not, it's not as simple as just putting a needle in your face. The muscles of the forehead, for example, are paper thin and it is imperitive that you hit the muscle correctly. Those around your eyebrow have different end points for each person. It is always preferred to have a professional with a background in facial plastics administer the drug.
