Botox treatments ‘still popular’


The economic crisis has not stopped people having Botox treatments.

The economic downturn has done little to diminish people’s appetite for Botox treatments, it has been argued.

Dr Martin Braun of the Vancouver Laser and Skin Care Centre told News 1130 that the “lipstick effect” has meant that people have put greater stock in making themselves look beautiful at a time when their finances have been hit hard.

First coined in the Great Depression of the 1930s, the phrase would still appear apt today, he noted.

“Generally with these facial injectables, you’ll take five to 15 years off someone’s face, which they feel is well in a competitive marketplace is good because we glorify youth,” Dr Braun commented.

Elsewhere, Harry Heiti recently wrote in a blog post for Official Spin that people wishing to look youthful without the pain and cost of cosmetic surgery have been advised that Botox injections could be the best solution.

Botox ‘should be used sparingly’


Brits warned on over-use of Botox.

While many people view Botox as a quick fix in the fight against ageing, Brits have been warned there could be social drawbacks to its use.

Shami Thomas, PR manager at Transform, said that many people can go too far when having these treatments carried out and it should not be the aim of men or women who have Botox injections to have frozen features.

“The majority of women we see having Botox don’t want or have their entire face frozen. It’s just certain areas that they want treated. That does not mean that they cannot show any facial expressions whatsoever,” she commented.

According to the Sunday Times, however, women who use Botox are unable to display the full range of emotions because of the paralysing nature of the treatment.

Indeed, a recent study carried out by David Havas, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, recently showed that Botox users struggle to frown, look angry or sad and may even be unable to show empathy.

Botox ‘has a range of uses’


The uses for Botox continue to expand.

Botox injections could have a range of treatment possibilities to improve the health of people suffering a range of conditions, it has been revealed.

The Washington Post reported the injections can be used to help reduce the pain associated with migraines, as well as helping to reduce the effects of an overactive bladder or profuse sweating.

Indeed, back pain can also be eased through the treatment, as can oesophageal spasms and hand tremors.

Elsewhere, the Montgomery Courier recently reported US veterans could soon benefit from Botox treatments to help ease the suffering of those with debilitating limb spasticity.

Dr Stephanie Sneed, director of the Polytrauma/Traumatic Brain Injury Programme, commented: “The purpose of the procedure is to assist patients in facilitating their rehabilitation goals and to reduce the pain caused by intense spasms.”

She added that the treatment can help sufferers reduce the intensity of spasms, as the botulinium toxin numbs areas where it is injected.
