The Many Uses of Botox Health Articles | July 4 Mariners Ken Griffey Jersey , 2012
Botox is an incredibly efficient chemical that can be used to treat a variety of both cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions.
When people think of Botox, they usually associate it only with its cosmetic functions. While it is certainly an excellent cosmetic product, its uses are not limited simply to cosmetic ends. There are actually a number of non-cosmetic uses for which it is utilized as well.
How it Works
Botox is chemical that serves to limit muscle function. In most cases, it is injected under the skin in a localized area, and, as it begins to soak into the tissue Mariners Edgar Martinez Jersey , it temporarily deadens the muscle in the area surrounding the injection site. While this may sound like a negative effect, it actually serves several desirable purposes. In many cases, too much muscle activity can actually cause problems for the individual, and injections like this can be very effective in neutralizing these problems.
Most often, Botox is used for cosmetic purposes. In these cases, a doctor injects the chemical in strategic places under the skin in the face. The reason for this is that by diminishing muscle activity in the face the skin - which is attached to the facial muscles - becomes looser Mariners Felix Hernandez Jersey , and this serves to soften the appearance of wrinkles. This is an effective way of reducing the appearance of wrinkles and is less invasive than other means of doing the same thing. People receiving injections for this purpose will often have them done every three to four months or as often as is recommended by a doctor.
Aside from its cosmetic benefits, Botox is also effective at treating several muscle related conditions that are not cosmetic. The most common of these non-cosmetic conditions is a twitch or some similar involuntary muscle activity. Most often it is used to treat these involuntary muscle movements when they occur in the face since larger muscles would require more of the chemical which is safest when used in small amounts. Since it serves to diminish the ability of the muscle to contract, an injection in an area that is affected by a twitch will serve to greatly decrease the twitching that is taking place. Thus, it is an incredibly effective means of managing involuntary muscle spasms like these.
In all, Botox is an incredibly efficient chemical. It can be used to treat a variety of both cosmetic and non-cosmetic conditions. If you think you might be a good candidate to receive injections, then talk to your doctor about a possible course of treatment.

GUANGZHOU, March 20 (Xinhua) -- Police in south China's Guangdong Province have detained four suspects and launched a pursuit for three others who were allegedly involved in attacking a group of unpaid migrant workers, killing one of them, earlier this month.
After posting an online wanted notice for the three fugitives Mariners Robinson Cano Jersey , police in Yingde City confirmed on Thursday that the alleged assailants were all from the No. 15 Bureau of the China Railway Construction Corp., contractor of the Guangzhou-Lechang Expressway Construction Project. The contractor had employed the migrant workers since September 2013.
The man who was killed has been identified as Zhao Zhiming, who was among the 21 migrant workers attacked by dozens of assailants, who wielded knives and iron bars, on a street about 10 minutes' walk from the construction project office, on March 6.
Police investigation has found that the workers were dismissed by the employer without payment after the Spring Festival holiday in February. They were refused payment again at the construction site office on March 6 Mariners Ichiro Suzuki Jersey , and a short while later they were attacked by assailants who drove three vehicles to chase them down the road.
Zhao Xinbiao, uncle of the dead man, said the contractor owed his nephew 8,000 yuan (1,287 U.S. dollars) in salary. The group of migrant workers together claimed 140,000 yuan in unpaid salary.
Zhao said the workers had nothing personal against Li Yukun Authentic Gordon Beckham Jersey , the man alleged to have led the attack against the unarmed workers.
Detectives with the Yingde Bureau of Public Security confirmed that Li, a resident of Yingde City, was the material contractor for the construction project.
A deputy manager of the project, Zhao Ping, denied that the project office was involved in inciting Li and others to attack the workers. But he admitted the office was responsible for ""improper management"" of the construction project.
Delayed salary and labor abuse have been frequent occurrences in construction sites of big infrastructure projects contracted by state-owned firms like China Railway Construction Corp.
There have been dozens of reports of beatings targeting migrant workers claiming unpaid salaries nationwide in the past few years. All the cases implicated the project contractors in hiring hatchet men to use violence with the aim of intimidating the workers to give up their salaries.
