What You Should Know About Botox

Botox is a brand name for a muscle relaxant made from botulism toxin. When it is injected into the skin it can relax the muscles and help get rid of wrinkles and other effects of aging.

When it is administered by a medical professional Botox is safe and effective. It is not a permanent solution but it can temporarily improve your appearance. You will have to come back for future treatments to keep the results.

You must always get botox injections from a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon because it is a powerful medicine. You should have yourself examined by a doctor before gettingbotox in Atlanta because there can be side effects. These can usually avoided by consulting a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon before the procedure.

Contrary to popular belief botox is not a poison but it can be dangerous in the long hands. You should never inject yourself with it, or use any product that claims to contain it. Instead you should seek botox in Atlanta from a cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist.

Something else to know is that improperly administered botox injections may not be effective. You could end up submitting yourself to a painful procedure and spend good money and not receive the proper results. Therefore you need to find a board certified cosmetic surgeon to administer the injections.

Make sure the botox is being administered by trained medical professionals who are under the supervision of a board certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist. Also make sure that the doctor in charge examines you before you get the injections.

It is also a good idea to ask the physician what alternatives are available. Cosmetic surgery is advancing rapidly and new more effective procedures are being developed all the time. There might be permanent solutions available that you are unaware of.

The Harley Medical Group Reports Boytox Boom

The Harley Medical Group, the UK’s largest cosmetic surgery provider, has reported an increase in professional men aged 25-30 years, having Botox across its 26 clinics, with men accounting for 20% of all Botox patients. ‘Boytox’ is increasingly being used as a preventative treatment by men who want to stay fresh-faced, despite living hectic lifestyles. Botox is now the second most popular non-surgical treatment with men At The Harley Medical Group.

Dr Nick Milojevic, Botox doctor at The Harley Medical Group, said:”Young men in the City have been spending a lot of time frowning over the last year and we’re seeing the fallout. Men coming into the clinics are telling us that they want to stay looking wrinkle-free despite their demanding lifestyles. Many of my younger patients opt for ‘Baby Botox’, a lighter variation of the treatment that uses extremely low doses of the toxin, giving a subtle and natural effect.”

Botox injections are also increasingly used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) to prevent the embarrassment of slippery handshakes, underarm sweat patches and dripping brows. Botox injections freeze sweat glands to stop perspiration in the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, underarm and chest areas.

In 2008 The Harley Medical Group also saw an overall increase of 6% year on year in Botox treatments.
