Botox – Fact or Fiction?

Botox, seen by some as a magic potion that makes age seem like nothing but a number and enjoyed by celebrities such as Kylie Minogue, Kim Cattrall, Vanessa Williams and many big Bollywood actors, is one of the most talked-about and misunderstood cosmetic treatments. Until recently, the B word has been used in hushed tones, adding to the layers of mystery and myth that surround it. But let’s try to clear up some of the most common Botox myths.

Myth number 1: Botox isn’t for men.

Actually male customers constitute nearly 10% of all Botox treatments and the numbers continue to grow. Simon Cowell, Gordon Ramsay and Grey’s Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey are just a few of the male celebrities who have advocated the use of Botox to delay the signs of aging.

Myth number 2: Botox is only used cosmetically.

In fact Botox has many medical uses in addition to the smoothing of wrinkles. Botox has also been approved for use in conditions such as neck pain, eyelid spasms, crossed eyes and severe underarm sweating.

Myth number 3: Anyone can perform a Botox treatment.

Quite the opposite, in fact, Botox must only be administered by experienced dermatologists, plastic surgeons or other aesthetic-specialty physicians with Medical Aesthetics Training, in appropriate medical settings that provide Aesthetics.

Top Cosmetic Surgery Success Stories

There has never been a better time to get into Cosmetic Training, with the recent influx of celebrity cash into cosmetic surgery. Celebrities are often in the news for improving on their already enviable figures with nips and tucks, but surgery is becoming more common for other reasons too, for example in helping lift the bust line after childbirth or breastfeeding, or the effects of aging. Breast lifts are also becoming more common due to the intense back and neck pain that a heavy chest can cause.

Breast enlargement surgeries often stir up the most controversy, but breast reductions, when done well, often go unreported. However, with a little research, it is easy to dig up a few examples of celebrities willing to go under the knife who don’t think bigger is better. US Reality TV star Bethenny Frankel wanted a breast lift but was convinced by her surgeon to go for an augmentation. However she opted to have her implants removed several years later, unhappy with her large breasts, and finally got the lift she always wanted. Now her smaller chest compliments her delicate frame perfectly.

Sylvester Stallone’s ex Brigitte Nielsen took televised plastic surgery to new extremes, allowing a live TV audience all access to the former actress getting liposculpture, a facelift, new veneers, and facial botox injections. Nielsen wanted to go against the grain of Hollywood by removing the shroud of secrecy surrounding cosmetic procedures.

Hollywood’s Stars Speak Out in Favour of Dermal Fillers

Wondering how certain celebrities seem to be cheating the aging process? Why actresses such as Jennifer Aniston and Halle Berry don’t seem to be aging quite as quickly as you?

Many Hollywood stars appear as flawless today as ten years ago, with even 72-year-old Jane Fonda looking younger than women half her age. Admittedly, these stars have been blessed with some pretty good genes, while personal stylists and airbrushing are essential, but their everlasting youth can also be attributed to dermal fillers such as Restylane, Botox, and Juvederm which minimize tell-tale signs of aging. Signing up to act as a model on a Dermal Filler Training Course can help you to perfect the skill needed to take years off a face.

Experts on cosmetic surgery believe that nearly all top Hollywood celebrities are using dermal fillers to achieve their flawless look, as advancements in high-definition technology mean that the cameras can pick up every wrinkle, crease, and blemish. With Dermal Fillers Training you will be able to help to rid and prevent unwanted facial lines to maintain a youthful look in front of the new high definition cameras.

While some celebrities refuse to admit using fillers, in the same way as previous generations declined to admit undergoing cosmetic surgical procedures, others are open and proud of the methods they are employing to maintain their youthful looks and vibrancy. Stare such as Vanessa Williams, Simon Cowell, Lisa Rinna, Kylie Minogue and Virginia Madsen, all in their forties, have spoken openly about the benefits of fillers, whilst rumours continue to circulate around those who refuse to admit or deny using the treatment, such as Kim Catrall, Nicole Kidman and Cindy Crawford.

Botox Treatments Can Enhance Your First Impression Ratings, Scientists Confirm

Demand for Botox Training across the North West and wider UK is on the rise as researchers confirm that the popular cosmetic treatment positively enhances first impression judgments – like those made at a first date or job interview – affecting ratings of attractiveness, athleticism, and dating success. This new research was presented at the Annual Meeting of the AAO-HNSF (American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation) in Chicago, Illinois.

Our first impressions of a person we meet for the first time are significantly influenced by their facial appearance, and, say scientists, enhanced by cosmetic surgery. A variety of first impression scales were used in order to determine whether or not the use of botulinum toxin A would contribute to a person receiving higher first impression ratings. Participants in the study were treated with botulinum toxin A, and photographed before and after the treatment. Members of the public were then asked to rate the person in each photograph against a number of indicators for success.

Subjects received significantly higher first impression scores in their post-treatment photos, in the categories of attractiveness, athleticism, and dating success. However, no positive correlation was found between botulinum toxin A injection and increased ratings for relationship success, financial or social skills.
