Many people have Botox injections to get rid of those frown lines or crow’s feet on their face. Some have them as a preventative rather than a cure. Botox works by preventing the nerve from communicating with the muscles in your face, so if your brain tells the muscle to contract, it won’t be able to. This will prevent a wrinkle from forming to start with and thus, your face will stay looking smooth and young.
Once you have the injections, your doctor will remind you of certain things you should or should not do for a while to ensure you get the best result. This will have been discussed beforehand and you very likely will have a sheet of instructions. But it is easy to forget, especially if you feel stressed out by the procedure. In fact, it is a very simple procedure which is one reason why it is so popular, but the first time may make you feel stressed.
So here are some skin care tips to remember for after the Botox injections.
If you want to lose weight without dieting or feel you have some fatty bumps on your body that just won’t come off, CoolSculpting may be for you. You may have expected something like liposuction which uses a needle to suck out little lumps of fat. However, this procedure is much better in that it is far less invasive. In other words, there is no part of the procedure that breaks the skin open, leaving it prone to possible infection and the need to heal.
Rather, this procedure uses a process of cooling to freeze the fat cells in the treatment area. It takes about an hour to have it done and during this time there is no need for painkillers or anaesthesia of any kind, simply because the procedure is not painful and hardly even uncomfortable. You simply sit and read a book, listen to music or watch a DVD while it is being done.
Statistics show that the use of Botox Injections has increased exponentially over the last few years, making it the most popular treatment available to remove wrinkles. While it has other medical uses it is best known as a wrinkle treatment and many famous people owe their youthful looks to it. But why is it so popular? There are many reasons.
- The truth is that women have always wanted to look young and beautiful with smooth skin that is wrinkle free. Having Botox injections are one way to achieve this, as it is used to treat those wrinkles known as frown lines and crow’s feet.
Once you have had liposuction, you may look eagerly into the mirror to see the new you. However, you may feel quite disappointed when you don’t see any difference. Or maybe the treated areas look even worse than they did before. Not to worry!
The reason why you can see no visible difference is because your body has not had time to heal yet. It takes weeks before the bruising and swelling go down and in fact, it may even take months for the swelling to subside and until it does, you won’t be able to see the effects of the body sculpting performed on your body by the doctor. While many people find it difficult to wait, there is no way that this time can be avoided.
Cosmetics are most women’s best friend – especially if they are chemical free. However, some women don’t care about the chemicals, especially if they have never had any trouble with their skin, so for those women who want to get gorgeous with cosmetics, here are a few tips that you may not have heard about before.
- Mix pearly white or golden eye shadow with your foundation for a luminescent look.
- For an instant makeover, swipe your favourite lipstick over your cheeks, eyelids and lips, then blend it all over your face.
- Add blush to the cheeks before you apply foundation for a coming straight from under the skin glow.
If you or a loved one are suffering from an addiction to some substance such as drugs or alcohol, you need to seek help to recover and be able to live a normal life. Many addicts go to a drug rehab centre, which can be very effective in dealing with your problem. In residential rehab, you are taken out of your normal environment where you can easily get more drugs and instead, live at the centre for up to a month.
