Botox And Fillers - Get Younger Looking Skin!

The aging process is a natural phenomenon and can be treated with the help of anti-aging treatments that include botox, fillers and other such methods. All the treatments are safe and use the minimum invasive technology to treat the skin. If you're thinking about one or more of these treatments, do read this article to get and in depth idea about what do you need to know before you even set foot in a cosmetic surgeon or doctor's office? 


Botulinum toxin (BTX) is a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. Botulinum toxin types A and B are used in medicine to treat various muscle spasms and diseases characterized by overactive muscle. The commercial form is marketed under the brand name Botox. Botulinum toxin is administered by diluting the powder in saline (sodium chloride) and injecting it directly into neuromuscular tissue. It takes 24-72 hours for botulinum toxin to take effect, which reflects the time needed for the toxin to disrupt the synaptosomal process. 

When injected, Botox relaxes muscles, preventing skin from creasing and causing wrinkles. It's effective for "expression lines", such as frown and surprise lines on the forehead and crow's feet around the eyes, and "turkey neck" – lines on the throat. The wrinkles will get smoother in a couple of days after availing the Botox. Botox injections give natural results that lasts generally 6 months to 1 year. Although, the treatment will show immediate results full visible results will be noticed only after a week or two. Botox is the most hassle free and safe anti-aging treatment that not only smoothes the wrinkles but also softens the creases formed on the skin. 


Fillers offer a temporary solution and a firm, wrinkle free skin and also diminish scars.There protein fibres called collagen and elastin in the deeper layers of skin which are responsible for offering you a smooth and soft skin. With age, this protein tends to lose its elasticity and leaves out fine lines and scars on the face. The fillers Restylane and Juvederm are clinically proven to smooth and erase these lines formed on the skin. Apart from smoothing or tightening skin, injectable filler also aims to change the facial profile to a more youthful one. The injection of filler materials under the skin can fill in deep folds, such as nasolabial folds also called "bracket lines", running from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth, create fuller lips and pad out hollow cheeks and eyes. Hyaluronic acid fillers which are most widely used last UpTo 18months. Fat transfers - where your own body fat is extracted from another body part, processed and injected into your face, can sometimes last several years too. 

Stay away from the wrinkles and fine lines and experience a youthful skin with the anti-aging Botox and fillers! In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello dear Warm welcome to I have evaluated your query for your father in law thoroughly.* Any dialysis decision depends upon the severity of the symptoms. As there are no other detrimental symptoms, I do not recommend for fistula at present, keep medications, dietary precautions, regular consultation with urologist.* Once fistula is fixed, he has to undergo minimum once a week dialysis without failure. Hope this clears your query. Wishing him fine recovery. Welcome for any further assistance. Regards take care.

Mild scaling of teeth by good dentist. Don't repeat much. Then use Dashansanskar tooth chooran. Once a day use sod bi carb, NaCl and lemon combo rubbing on teeth. Do not use this rubbing for long time.
