Celebrities Who Had Botox Injections
It’s been ten years since the U.S. Food and Drug Administration first approved Botox for use on wrinkles. Between now and April 15, 2002 a lot has happened. High-profile lawsuits, medical breakthroughs, tragedies, controversies, reality TV segments and a generation of celebrities suspended in their mid-thirties. Hollywood royalty may have been the first to jump on the wrinkle-filler trend but it was years before they actually admitted it. For years their M.O. was “Deny Deny Deny”, but as the rest of the country has caught up with the trend, stars are finally letting their guard down, if not their forehead skin.

Split face study shows Dysport better than Botox…
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, more than 2.4 million people got injectables of Botox or Dysport last year to reduce fine lines on the face.
For the past decade, Botox, which is a version of botulinum toxin type A that temporarily weakens or paralyzes muscles that cause wrinkles, has been the most popular cosmetic nonsurgical procedure.
However, a new version of the drug, called Dysport, was recently found to deliver better results in some cases.
A study conducted by scientists at the University of California San Francisco and published in the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery compared the effectiveness of the two injectables in reducing the appearance of crow’s feet, or the small wrinkles that are common around the eye area.
For the so-called “split face” study, 90 volunteers had Botox injections on one side of their face and Dysport injections on the other. After one month, 67 percent of those who received the injections said that the Dysport side of their face looked better.
“From our findings, it’s clear that there’s a better smoothing effect and clearing of lines around the eyes with Dysport,” the study’s co-author told HealthDay. “But does that also mean that Dysport is better at achieving the same thing around the mouth or forehead or neck? We really can’t make that conclusion.”
If you have this problem, Allure outlines the basics:
•make sure your doctor is registered,
•expect that you will need treatment once or twice a year,
•if you’re diagnosed with hyperhidrosis, your insurer may pay a portion of the treatment,
•you will need about 15 to 20 tiny injections for each underarm, and
•finally, don’t worry about the sweating shifting to other body parts; it doesn’t.
You can undergo this treatment with confidence. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Botox was FDA approved for underarm sweating in 2004.
Most Important Factor
Botox and Dysport are both approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and are not associated with any severe safety risks.
“The most important aspect of using these different botulinum toxins is not which one you get, but making sure that you are being injected by a reputable and respected physician who does a lot of these injections,” A professor of facial plastic surgery at Washington University in Saint Louis, told ABC News.
Experts say that the first step to ensuring positive results from cosmetic procedures such as injections of Botox or Dysport is to choose a trained, registered cosmetic doctor.
To look your BEST
Hairless smooth skin
The diode hair removal laser works extremely well on any area of the body â€” unkempt pair of eyebrows, dark sideburns, greenish hair growth in the underarm area or hair growth on the upper back. This laser causes the permanent destruction of most hair follicle and treats hundreds of follicle at a time.
Younger looking hands
Hands give your age away rather easily. Fillers with a combination of a skin tightening laser can work wonders. Superficial and deep peels done once a month are also a great option.
Some of the most common problems that plague the feet are dry, cracked skin, calluses, corns, tan, build-up of hard skin around the heels and balls of the feet, and in-grown toe nails. As a quick home remedy start by soaking your feet in warm water mixed with some sea salts and slough of the dead skin using a pumice stone. The feet have a very high rate of cell turnover so it becomes important to keep exfoliating this area regularly. Secondly massage the foot with some vaseline two-three nights a week before bedtime. Put on a pair of cotton socks and allow the moisture to seep in overnight. Whilst waxing legs, wax the foot as well â€” this removes the dryness and dullness from the upper part of the foot and the toes, as waxing too is a form of exfoliation.
