Hello, viewers, I am Dr Chiranjiv Chhabra from skin and life clinics. Today, we talk about botox. The very famous Botox or botulinum toxin.
What is Botox?
Botox is nothing but a simple protein. It started many many years back as a medicine which was used for migraines. And per chance, it was discovered that the same medicine was easing out lines and wrinkles and making all the patients look younger. So, Botox cosmetic was born. Botil tox is used to wipe away lines and wrinkles from the face. It is a beautiful procedure. Why? Because it is short. It is effective. The results are developing in times. It is long lasting because for 4-6 times you will not see lines or wrinkles and you may not remember your age.
When it goes away it doesn’t go away completely?
It goes away very slowly so you can chop up your medicine dice at that point of time.
Is it addictive?
No it is not. You may just want to do it once say just before a special occasion and may not want to do it again. But I am sure you want to do it again because when we look younger, we feel better, we work better.
Where all can Botox be used?
Botox is a beautiful anti-ageing tool that can remove wrinkles at the forehead that is the frown lines. Those are the wrinkles around the eyes when we smile. It can be used to sculpt the jawline that makes the lower face more lifted and oval. To correct the gummy smile, that is when some people smile their lips open up to wide and their teeth show. It can be used to correct this. The folds on the neck which comes with ageing, called the neck folds are beautifully treated by botox. Botox is also used very effectively for sweaty underarms which is a very common problem in a warm/ hot country like ours.
Why do people like Botox?
Botox is safe. Yes. It is effective. The result kicks in a time. And it lasts long i.e. 4-6 months. It is an easy procedure. Within 15 minutes, you can take your botox shots and go back to work again. So nobody has to know that you have done something and you can natural, younger looking face. You can compete in your workplace and you can look beautiful at night with your friends socially and you can be happy with yourself.
