Is botox safe? And if you stop getting botox will ur skin get more wrinkly?

Botox is proven safe: Botox (botulinum toxin) has a proven track record for safety. It works by preventing the muscle movement which creates wrinkles. If you stop using botox, it will stop working. Therefore, then the wrinkle creation process will continue. If you use Botox regularly, you can reduce wrinkle formation. There is no "rebound" or "bounce back" if you try Botox and then stop using it. ...Read more

Do lip injections cause your lips to sag and wrinkle if you stop getting them done?

Do lip injections cause your lips to sag and wrinkle if you stop getting them done?

Not exactly.: Your lips do sag and wrinkle as you age; that's a basic reality. Injecting fillers will conceal at least some of that sagging and wrinkling, temporarily. If you stop getting the filler, and you're no longer concealing the sagging and wrinkling, your lips will look saggy and wrinkly - not because of the injections, but because you're no longer concealing the normal aging process. ...Read more

What's is in Botox and could it cause side effects? Should I get Botox at age21 to prevent wrinkles? And does Botox wear-off,and if so, how long after

Yes!: Botox can be given at your age- its botulism toxin that paralyzes the muscle temporarily. Side affects can be flu like symptoms. We tell patients depending on your metabolism rate 6 weeks to 6 months, but usually it last three months. It won't prevent wrinkles but will slow down the deep wrinkle process if gotten on a regular basis ...Read more

Int. in getting rhinoplasty. Is it true now you may hv to get two surgeries to see best result? And it's harder if you have thicker skin on nose?

Int. in getting rhinoplasty. Is it true now you may hv to get two surgeries to see best result? And it's harder if you have thicker skin on nose?

Thick nasal skin: Having thicker skin on the nose is a blessing in the long-run, but can make for a slower recovery because of greater swelling. An appropriate facial analysis during the pre-operative planning period should result in a plan that does NOT typically require more than a single surgery. There are countless techniques available to help thick skinned noses get great results. ...Read more

Can surgery get rid of my facial wrinkles? I have used creams and botox to make my facial wrinkles less noticeable, but i still look older than my age. What kind of plastic surgery is best for reducing wrinkles?

Get to an expert!: One are the advantages of having your Botox and fillers done by a plastic surgeon is that you can be evaluated for other noninvasive or invasive procedures while assessing your response to Botox and fillers. Multiple minor procedures can be combined to give a good effect. However, the key is having someone who knows your goals, how aggressive you want to be, and of course, your budget! good luck. ...Read more

I : I wish i could tell you there are effective treatments for stretch marks, but honestly the ones on the market are not very effective. I have heard good things about mederma, it's worth a try in all reality time is the best thing for stretch marks. Over time they fade and become less noticeable. You can prevent further stretch marks by not losing or gaining weight too fast. If any doctors here on avvo know of any effective treatments please feel free to comment on this post! good luck. ...Read more
