For a long time, I was one of those who wondered why on earth women would choose to have Botox treatments, when in effect they are permitting poisons to be inserted under their skin. I recently had my opinion changed however, when my mother had the treatment done, and she looks amazing!
In her early 50s, I never thought of my mother as being old, or showing age in her face, but now that she has had the treatment I can definitely see a remarkable improvement. She says that she felt as if her face was not her own, and that while she felt young and vital in herself; what she saw in the mirror did not reflect that. After considering surgery, she decided that this was far too drastic a step to take, and so chose to try a central London wrinkle treatment clinic instead. She is more than happy with the results, and I can see why; she really does look several years younger and her complexion is smooth and clear.
The effects of the Botox can last for anything between six weeks and eight months; according to the individual, and so my mum can then decide whether she wants to repeat the treatment or not. For this reason I believe she made the right choice, as facelifts and other cosmetic surgeries are non-reversible and so if she was not pleased with the results there would be nothing she could do about it, except perhaps undergo even more surgery. The Botox treatment can be repeated as many times as necessary, or not at all if she changes her mind, although I really think she will go for it to gain as it has made such an amazing difference to her; not only physically but mentally as well, as it is obvious that she feels much happier now in her own skin and the additional confidence literally shines out of her.
