Non Surgical Facelifts and Antiwrinkle Treatments

Non Surgical Facelifts Solutions

Wrinkles happen as we age. If you can't afford plastic surgery, there are short term wrinkle solutions you can use. The best part is that there are very few risks so you just have to consult with you dermatologist. Let's talk about each one in alphabetical order.

First is Botox which has been around for over 10 years. This is a protein toxin produced by the clostridium botulinum bacteria that is injected in small amounts into the body helping the muscles relax and make the lines disappear. It is effective in treating crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, frown lines and laugh lines despite the fact that some studies show it causes new wrinkles to appear. It is good for 3 to 6 months and can be repeated.

Similar to Botox is collagen which has been used for over 25 years. It is used primarily as a tissue filler to soften lines around the mouth, to help augment lips, correct early degrees of muscle loss and erase acne scars. The injection is good for only 3 to 4 months. Before you can be injected with this protein, doctors will have to do some skin tests first to make sure you are not allergic.

There is a treatment called autologous fat transfer. Here, fat is removed from one part of the body and then it is used to fill the gaps caused by the wrinkles. Usually, fat is extracted from the buttocks, stomach or thighs. Since the patient's fat is being used, there is no chance of allergic reactions taking place.

Another soft tissue filler is Restylane that is considered to be an injectable cosmetic treatment. This comes from hyaluronic acid which has proven to be very successful in Canada and Europe. Basically, this is a gel that is a basic component of the human skin. Unlike other procedures that fill in the gaps caused by wrinkles, this lets the skin cells "float" making it very suitable for large folds of skin often seen in the mouth and cheeks. This is effective for about 6 to 9 months with low incidence of allergic reactions.

Then there is also Hylaform which is an alternative to collagen and those who want to use it do not have to undergo an allergy test. Just like the rest, this has to be injected into the skin at regular intervals in order to treat wrinkles.

The procedures mentioned are not covered by insurance and do not have any health benefits. The only thing it can do is hide away those wrinkles for a few months and when they start to appear again, you have to go back to your dermatologist for the next treatment.

Apart from the short term wrinkle solutions, there are also home made treatments which you can use to treat and prevent pimples. Most of these use simple things you can buy at the grocery and you may have to mix some of them. You should clean your face first so the pores will open and it can be absorbed by the skin, left to dry before it is rinsed.

So are short term wrinkle solutions the way to go? If you want to avoid the pain that is often endured with other costly treatments and the long recovery time, then the answer is yes.

Botox for Migraines!

Poison The Pain – Botox For Migraines

Botox can make you look better. Did you know it could also make you feel better? Moreover, we are not just talking about self-esteem here. Migraineurs looking to smooth out some wrinkles in their foreheads discovered a happy side effect of the cosmetic treatment—fewer migraines.

Botox, botulinum toxin type A, is a neurotoxin most famous for its use in smoothing wrinkles. The FDA originally approved it in 1989 as a treatment for eye muscle disorders, and the cosmetic use came later.

Botox is thought to work by weakening or paralyzing the muscles by stopping or slowing the release of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACh). ACh transmit the signal from nerve to nerve to cause muscle contraction. When ACh production is inhibited muscles relax, including those that cause wrinkles.

Acetylcholine is also a neuromodulator. This means it affects how other neurotransmitters function. ACh alternately excites and sedates nerve endings, and it is this ability to suppress excitability that may help migraine patients. One theory on migraine causes is based on the idea of a cascade of nerve excitement in the brain that agitates the arteries in the brain. This in turn stimulates nerve sensitivity, which further inflames the artery, in a vicious circle.

Botulinum toxin is the same agent produced by spoiled food that causes botulism. When used medically, the toxin is injected straight into the muscles and not absorbed into the bloodstream. The dose of toxin required to cause botulism is significantly larger than used in medical applications.

Like most prophylactic migraine treatments, Botox injections may take several weeks to become effective. Depending on the study, Botox has proven effective at reducing migraines for 60-90% of study participants. Injections should be given at least three months apart and the effects should last ten to thirteen weeks. Botox is not currently FDA approved as a migraine treatment.
