Does Botox Have Longer Lasting Anti-Aging Effects Than We Thought?

Botox Injections

Botox injections are a cosmetic form of treatment that has come to be associated with lip plumping, breast augmentation and wrinkle reduction procedures. However, it has recently come to light that this substance may in fact be able to affect the overall structure of the skin in a positive – and even anti-aging – way as well.

Increasing Skin Pliability

A recent study found that, when used long-term, Botox injections have the ability to increase skin pliability and flexibility. One of the study’s authors, Dr. James Bonaparte from the University of Ottawa in Canada, stated the following in this regard, “Apart from just seeing the paralysis in the muscles that are treated, we are also seeing changes in the skin that are indicative of possible changes in fibroblasts.” These findings have suggested that Botox may not only have direct anti-aging effects on the skin; it may make the substance useful for scar treatments as well.

A Few Reasons Why Botox Is So Popular

Botox Treatments

Since it received the stamp of approval from the FDA two decades ago, popularity levels of Botox injections and treatments have soared tremendously, with more than 6 million treatments being performed in the United States each year alone. There are a few good reasons why this form of cosmetic surgery has become even more popular than ever over the past few years.

It’s a Non-Invasive Form of Surgery

Unlike many other forms of cosmetic surgery, Botox injections are classified as being non-invasive, which means that they are normally also virtually pain-free. Patients also experience minimal discomfort these injections because of the fact that extremely thin needles are used to administer them. Treatment times are normally also short in that they last no longer than 15 to 20 minutes and patients are normally able to resume their regular daily routines almost immediately afterwards as well.

How to Get Rid of those Awful Black Circles Under your Eyes

Blepharoplasty

When it comes to overall appearances, most people state that they are beyond embarrassed about their dark under eye circles. However, this need not be the case anymore, as there are different ways in which this unsightly trait can be addressed.

Common Causes of Under Eye Circles

Before any type of treatment can be recommended for dark circles under the eyes, it is important to know what may be causing them in the first place. Some of the most common causes include seasonal allergies, age and genetic factors. If you are unfortunate enough to have thin or fair skin, it will be far more noticeable when the blood pools beneath the skin under your eyes – this happens when the capillaries that are present there leak or stretch from eye strain or lack of sleep. Other factors that can cause this condition include smoking, dehydration, caffeine and alcohol consumption, a lack of sleep and possible dietary deficiencies.

Why Society’s Apprehension to FFS Shouldn’t Slow Anyone Down from Pursuing

Society & FFS

Most of the world tends to only associate cosmetic surgery with breast lifts, Botox injections and liposuction treatments. However, facial feminization surgery (FFS) is equally important in that it is considered essential for anyone who will be undergoing reassignment surgery at any point in the future.

What is FFS?

Most individuals who are transgender will at some stage want to soften the appearance of some or even all of their facial features. This can be done by having facial feminization surgery performed, which consists of a few different forms of surgery that have been specifically devised for this purpose. FFS can involve shaving and contouring procedures such as mandible shaving, chin shaving, tracheal and jaw shaving, brow lift procedures and scalp advancement surgery. Each patient is able to decide which of the procedures will be best for him – depending on the end result that he would like to achieve.
