When Should I Start Getting Botox?

It doesn’t matter if you’re 30, 40 or 50; the best time to start getting Botox is as soon as you start to see wrinkles. Facial injections can be used not only as a quick fix but also as a preventative measure, regardless of your age. Once you have deep wrinkles, Botox will soften them, but it cannot eliminate them. For the best chance of success, the optimum time to begin is when the lines in your face are just beginning to form.

If you don’t like what you see when you look in the mirror, Botox can help you. Factors such as the sun and weather can wreak havoc on the skin, and more and more patients in their late twenties and early thirties already have significant wrinkling between the eyebrows, on the forehead, and around the eyes. Botox is a great wrinkle eraser and a proven and safe medication, blocking muscle contractions, and hence reducing skin creases in the skin. Botox is highly effective on horizontal forehead lines, vertical lines between brows, and “squint lines” around the outer part of the eye.

People are becoming more and more aware of their aesthetics, and thus turning to Botox treatments as a way to boost self-confidence. Now could be the perfect time to consider training in Botox so that you too can carry out Botox injections on clients.

Botox Could Put An End To Summer Sniffles

The world’s most famous wrinkle-buster has been used to treat a plethora of medical conditions from incontinence to migraines, but a new study taking place in Australia will trial the use of Botox as a cure for hay fever after initial tests looked promising. Scientists hope that applying Botox gel to the nose of a sufferer will help to relieve the symptoms of hay fever, such as a runny nose, itchy eyes and sneezing, for up to 3 months.

How it works: Botulinum Toxin will treat hay fever symptoms by affecting the nerve endings in the nose, by blocking some of the chemicals released by nerve endings when they react to the allergen, which trigger the symptoms. The Botox molecule has been re-engineered for this purpose, enabling it to penetrate through the lining of the nose as well as through the skin. The methodology is similar to the use of Botox for treatment of cerebral palsy and muscle spasms following strokes.

British scientists have recently announced that a new vaccine for hay fever is being developed, however it requires a course of injections over the course of several months, and immunologists now believe that injecting closer to the skin’s surface is far more effective than an intravenous vaccine. Botox itself is a purified type of nerve poison that affects the muscles, produced by a bacteria that causes a muscle paralysis disease.

To treat clients with Botox, you will need to undertake a Botox Training Course from a reputable aesthetic training academy, such as Dr Hennessy.

South Korean Girls Queuing Up To Look More Western

South Korea has recently overtaken Brazil as the plastic surgery capital of the world, now having the highest number of surgeries performed per capita. South Korean women are now so immersed in a western celebrity culture that a new procedure, aimed at creating the Caucasian crease many Asian women don’t naturally have, and known as ‘double eyelid surgery’, has become as common as a trip to the dentist.

The popular procedure involves cutting the outer end of the eyes to allow them to become wider and rounder, something plastic surgeons say boosts confidence. Another common choice is to raise the nose and inject fact into the forehead and chin, creating the appearance of a Caucasian facial structure.

Eyelid surgery has become so entrenched in South Korean culture that before and after advertisements with often graphic pictures are everywhere. But at this year’s Seoul Fashion Week, many of the fashionistas were starting to distance themselves from K-pop plastic surgery culture, in fact, there were many make-up artists and models talking about reversing the procedure, favouring a more natural look. Keep ahead with the latest trends by enrolling in aesthetics courses at an aesthetics training academy.
