Botox for Plumper Lips?

Posted on January 9th, 2017

plump lips botoxEvery woman likes to look her best and many follow the latest trends slavishly in order to ensure they look younger and more beautiful that nature made them. To this end, many people want to plump up their lips and think that Botox could be used for this purpose because both the treatment and the results are quick. But in fact, this product is not used for plumping the lips, even though it may have that effect.

What happens is that tiny wrinkles form from the top of the top lip and go up in a vertical line. It is these wrinkles, called smoker’s wrinkles that Botox is used to treat. When it is injected into the wrinkle right close to the lip line, it has the secondary effect of plumping up the lips. While many women like this effect, you have to remember that Botox numbs the muscles under the skin, so if too much is injected you may not be able to smile or control drooling.

botox resultsMany women are delighted with the result of Botox injections on their wrinkles. The best part is that it works almost immediately, although in some cases the full effects are not seen for a few days.

10 Top Tips for Men Choosing Botox

Posted on October 23rd, 2015

When thinking about Botox injections, we usually assume that it is women who have it to reduce their wrinkles. However, men can also have this treatment to ensure those wrinkles don’t become a problem – and to look younger.  In fact, men’s faces tend to wrinkle more than women’s because their skin is thicker and they rarely use skin lotions on their face except for some aftershave. Add to this the fact that more men spend more time outdoors in harsh, sunny conditions due to their work or play, they tend to have more wrinkles.

This is not necessarily a bad thing, since wrinkles are just a normal part of aging, but for men who are in the public eye a lot, it can be embarrassing, especially if they are still young. Having Botox can alleviate the problem to a great extent, even if it doesn’t get rid of those deeper lines. It can still soften them out so they are not as visible.

Botox Treatment Costs

Posted on July 17th, 2012

Asking how much a botox treatment cost will get the same type of answer you would get from a carpet cleaner or a hairdresser about their services. They will all tell you a version of, “it depends”, and it really does depend on a lot of different factors. Botox treatments change with the neighborhood literally, the price can change with the geographical location.

You cannot find a celebrity 25 and older that has not tried it. It is easy and effective and for most to them cost is not a consideration, they will pay what it costs to stay younger looking as long as possible. And besides botox is much less invasive and costly than plastic surgery.

The reasons that the costs vary so much is simply because every person’s needs are different. If you only need forehead shots why pay for crows feet and laugh lines and vice versa. Clinics and so called specialists often advertise on a “cost per area” basis. Doctors have said that for the best prices look for providers that charge on a “cost per unit basis”.

Why Is Botox Treatment Better Than Using Wrinkle Creams?

Posted on July 17th, 2012

p61The very thing that makes botox different is also the reason no wrinkle cream can compare with its results. Wrinkles do not start on the surface but beneath it. Creams, dermal abrasions and other topical treatments cannot hope to have much of an effect on things that are happening beneath the dermis.

Wrinkles start below the surface in the muscles. This is much farther than any surface treatment can penetrate. Yes, well moisturized skin has less visible wrinkles but that is only a pacifying move. As soon as the skin dries the wrinkles will reappear. The truth is there is not one cream on the market that works as good as or better than or just like botox.
