Passion and feelings and friendliness in writing was trained out of me for 12 years as I have a strict science background. Creativity, passion and feelings aren’t supposed to be a part of science (and that’s a good thing). But some of us come out of school and want to speak to the public and we then need to write interesting and engaging pieces.. Whew, It’s not easy!! This article has a lot of the key pointers that I’m still working on today (Even after 9 years of blogging). It’s always good to read them again… Not to mention it’s a lovely, engaging post..fun to read and everything!
Modern syringes and pen needles are intended for a single use, but many people use them for several shots. Today’s needles are very fine, and if you were to look at one under a microscope after even a single injection, you’d be surprised by how much damage it sustains. Injecting through clothing (which, contrary to medical myth, is perfectly harmless) dulls needles even more quickly. When you use a dull needle, you raise your risk of small, tearing injuries to the tissue, which in turn raises your risk of scarring. It’s also possible for small needle fragments to break off and be left behind in your skin. And of course, you’ll also be much more likely to experience bruising at the injection site if you’re using a dull needle.
Small amounts of dilute Botox can help diminish the fine wrinkles under the eye in select patients. It works best in younger patients that have good lid support and in carefully selected older patients that have favorable orbital anatomy. The main risk of lower eyelid treatment is that it can cause weakening of the muscles that support the lower eyelid. As a result, patients may experience "rounding" of the lower lid, which can make the eye look tired and aged. Unfortunately, not all Botox providers have the education required to be able to determine the ideal candidate for this treatment. I do agree with the advice of your your dermatologist. Botox will not correct eye wrinkles caused by upward movement of the cheeks when smiling. However, you may benefit from treatment with a traditional or fractionated-CO2 laser if your wrinkles are caused by significant inelasticity of the eyelid skin
