In the course of all the reading I do every day, I come across things that sometimes get me thinking, like this information about botox san diego from Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics.
The information talks about Botox, which is a procedure I've always had some questions about: injecting a face with toxins? Needles? Toxins? Seemed weird to me.
But the site says that some 3.3 million Botox procedures were done in 2005 alone, and that the FDA has approved Botox as a cosmetic treatment; in fact, it says it's the ONLY such treatment the FDA has approved, and the side effects seem minimal and not very worrisome to me.
So that seems okay to me, and the site says it can smooth out frown lines, even severe ones, on a temporary basis, with repeats every couple of months. It does that, it turns out -- the site says -- by reducing muscle activity, so all those millions (?) of muscles in your face aren't always working so hard to frown and push your brows down and make you otherwise look like you disapprove of the things around you.
Which is something I may need, what with the sheer amount of frowning I have to do these days. Mr Bunches ALONE generates about 23 man-hours of frowning per day, and let's not even get into Mr F and the way he eats Pringles.
It does go to show, though, that you shouldn't really judge any procedures until you at least get a little information about them. And if you'd like more info about the Botox treatments, click that link up above.
