Botox Beauties Of The 21st Century

For thousands of years, people have always admired beauty, and woman strive to achieve eternal youth. Look back to Cleopatra bathing in gallons of goat milk. What a skin treatment that was! Through the ages, women have applied to their skin all sorts of creams, lotions and potions composed of weird and wonderful things like plants, bark, even insects and venom. In today's modern society there is now a quick fix women (and men) can opt for in the quest for beauty and that is Botox.

Botox is the trade name for Boltulinum Toxin Type A, which is a deadly poison. However it has become widely used as a cosmetic treatment for wrinkles and it works by actually paralyzing the tiny muscles which cause wrinkles. This has the effect of making the skin above the muscles fall flat and appear smooth. It's like taking a scrumpled up cloth, wetting it and then smoothing it out. All the wrinkles and folds disappear.

Five to ten years ago, Botox treatment was restricted to the very wealthy, with a typical course costing several thousand dollars. But nowadays since the drug is for more widely available, the price has come down to a few hundred dollars. This means almost anyone can make an appointment at their local clinic, book a session and stick the cost on their credit card. A quick Google search will reveal hundreds of places you can obtain treatment in a city near you.

The effects of Botox injection wear off after a few months, so it is necessary to have repeat treatment if you want to maintain the youthful looks. Having botox can become addictive. Imagine looking in the miror and seeing yourself looking ten years younger, only to see your new beauty and youth fade over a few months as the effects wear off. You need to get your next 'fix' of botox to maintain your wrinkle free complexion, and so that has given birth to the Botox Junkie. Women (and some men) obsessed with maintaining youthful looks, sometime into their 60's and 70's.

You can look after your skin using many natural remedies. In fact drinking plenty of water is one of the best things you can do. Eat healthy and stop smoking, and you will have beautiful skin well into your later years. You don't have to become a botox junkie. Remember, one shot and you could be hooked.
