A renowned plastic surgeon has that 80 percent of Bollywood celebrities go for botox or plastic surgery to enhance their appearance, ease the wrinkles and fine lines and look young as ever. Mostly, Bollywood actresses go for botox that explain their youthful facial appearance even in their late 30, 40s and even 50s. Of course, a good diet and fitness does pay but Botox is still the order of the day for most Bollywood actresses.
Botox® is injected underneath skin in order to even out fine lines and facial wrinkles. Botox numbs the facial muscles, leading to a smooth, facial appearance. Plastic surgery is invasive, Botox is not, which explains its popularity. The downtime is also minimal. The scars go away in just 24 hours and the swelling subsides in a couple of days. Botox is cheaper but the effect is temporary and can last for 6 months, after which you have to go for another Botox shot.
Botox® and their ilk are also called as injectables or ‘neurotoxins’ or ‘neuromodulators’. They are used to address aging signs in areas like the lines on the forehead, the crows’ feet under the eyes and the wrinkling near the eyebrows, the area around the lips and the sides of the nose. Since these neuromodulators reduce muscle contraction, they put a stop over the deepening of lines, albeit temporarily.
Compared to injectables like Botox, fillers accentuate the volume of tissue below the folds and the skin lines. These are often administered to the lower part of the face, applied on the line that moves from the nose to the mouth. Fillers are used to accentuate the cheekbones, the area below the eyes and the lips. The basic difference between Botox and fillers is that while fillers are used on the lines of the face that are ‘at rest’, the latter works on the area that is wearied by overuse. The effect from fillers last for 4 months to a year and can depend on the intensity of the create, the area injected and the filler type used.
Botox and fillers can accentuate thin lips and make them fuller. They can reduce shallow contours, reduce facial fine lines and wrinkles. But they cannot change the elements of your face, like, for instance, give you a face lift.
The plastic surgeon or the cosmetologist takes a call on whether a Botox or filler is the best alternative. Compared to Botox and fillers, plastic surgery is a cosmetic, invasive procedure where the patient goes under anesthesia for a youthful look. In this, excess facial skin may be removed and tissues may be tightened to give a firmer appearance. Swelling and scaring can be expected after the surgery. The recovery time is about 2 weeks.
