Botox is one of the quickest, easiest & least invasive procedures to have done to your face. So what is it actually? Botox stands for Botulinum Toxins, which are toxins derived from C botulinum bacteria, found in natural environments like lakes or forests. In small doses these toxins are harmless, however in larger quantities they are pretty deadly… 

How does it work?

Botox is given through tiny injections, usually after a topical numbing cream has been applied to the area of the skin. The substance released into the skin temporarily paralyzes the muscles in the face; ultimately by stopping the muscle cells from contracting, the toxins enable the targeted muscles to be more mobile. Botox usually lasts anywhere between 3-11 months, and costs anywhere between 10-600 dollars, depending on what you're getting done. The procedure normally takes 24-72 hours, to settle and create an impact, although some doctors believe botox can set in upto 2 weeks later. After the process you are not allowed to touch your face, or lie down for 4 hours, this ensures the toxins spreads how it is supposed to.

As long as you’re healthy you can get botox, whereas once the desired age to get the treatment was around 40 or 50 when signs of aging are apparent, now people have started getting it in their early twenties, as a preventative measure. While it definitely makes you look younger, there could be some undesirable side effects. Dry eyes, headaches and bruising around the site, just to name a few. Others include, double vision, urinary problems, arrhythmia and even myocardial infarction. 

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look younger, afterall age is just a number, so you do you. However before taking the plunge, speak with your doctor, every person is different, and may react accordingly! If you do choose to do it, we hope you enjoy every second of being young, beautiful and botoxed!
