Botox for Migraines – 5 Things To Consider

Botox Injections help migraines – But are you really a candidate ?

Botox is now available on the NHS and has been widely publicized as the miracle cure for migraines.  For sufferers this is the dream scenario, as the headache of a migraine is so intense it can render an active middle-aged person completely home bound.  Allergan  the makers of Botox  have said  injecting  specific points around the head and the back of the neck can reduce the severity of the migraine by at least 50 percent’. Before you decide this is for you, consider these 5 important points:

1. Do you have an injection phobia?

If you do then this may not be the prescription for you. The treatment requires injecting in specific  points.  Up to 31 injection sites are injected.  The procedure takes up to 20 minutes of non-stop injecting.  The results are not immediate and can take up to 7 days before any relief is noted.

2. Your condition must be chronic

16 days in a month to more specific with episodes lasting up to four hours.  This is classed as chronic. If you experience the occasional migraine, then botox is not deemed necessary.

3. Botox Injections are not the first course of treatment for migraines

You must have tried two other medications prior to botox and had poor results.  Each medication will have been prescribed for two months. If you have shown no signs of improvement will you be considered as a patient.

4. You need three sessions for real results

Some may see improvements after one session however three is more realistic. The treatments are spaced up to three months apart so you will be under supervision for up to a year,  injecting the specific points every three months.

5. Side effects

Side effects are possible:

  • Pain at the injecting points
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Headaches – yes headaches!
  • Stomach upset
  • Neck pain

PIP Breast Implant founder Jean-Claude Mas released from custody

PIP BREAST IMPLANTS BEING PRESCRIBED TO A WOMAN

With over 13,000 French women alone and thousands around the world having undergone cosmetic surgery to remove the rupture prone PIP breast implants, it comes as a surprise to many that PIP founder Jean-Claude Mas is released from custody. Having spent the last eight months behind bars, he is now due for trial later in the year.

PIP BREAST IMPLANTS FOUNDER JEAN-CLAUDE MAS

French government scientists found that Mr Mas’ implants contained the chemicals baysilone, silopren and rhodorsil – normally used as fuel additives or in the manufacture of industrial rubber tubing. He has reportedly confessed to illegally obtaining the low-cost gel but denies that the PIP implants posed a threat to health. Studies showed that the sub-standard silicone used posed no serious long-term threats to health, but the PIP products were up to twice as likely to burst as other implants.

Worldwide it has been reported that over 400,000 women have PIP implants and in the UK 40, 000 women alone have PIP breast implants. The company was placed into liquidation when the true nature of the business was disclosed.  In December 2011, the government advised women to have the implants removed, “even without clinical signs of a deterioration of the implant,” saying they presented an unusually high rupture risk and that the leaked silicone could cause irritation.

Mr Mas is due to go on trial in April 2013. This will be a major worldwide trail which involves up to 180 lawyers as 4,600 complaints come forward.

How many cosmetic procedures has Joan Rivers had? Get ready for a shock!

SO HOW MUCH COSMETIC SURGERY HAS JOAN RIVERS HAD?

Joan Rivers has revealed the number of procedures she has undergone. It’s a shocking 739.  Her attitude to cosmetic surgery is quite relaxed as she states “Every weekend I just go in and I do something new. I get a 10th one free. It’s a little like coffee you just keep going,” Rivers reportedly quipped.

With her 80th birthday approaching, Joan answers her critics in ture Joan style. She told The Huffington Post, “I don’t give a damn what people think. If you don’t like my opinion, too bad. That’s the only good thing about age.”

Melissa, Joan’s daughter and co-star on “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?”, is none too happy with how often her mother goes under the knife but has little say in the matter once Joan’s made her decision.

Joan Rivers is a force of nature – and one of the hardest-working celebrities in the world – comedian, best-selling author, Tony-nominated actress, playwright, screenwriter, motion picture director, columnist, lecturer, syndicated radio host, Emmy Award-winning television talk-show host, jewelry designer, red-carpet fashion laureate, businesswoman, and, most important to her, a mother and a grandmother.

With a CV like that you sure need to keep up appearances. 739 could easily be a guiness record for the number of procedures on one single woman.

Face-Slapping. The Thai Cosmetic Treatment to Erase Wrinkles

Looking for an instant fix for those wrinkles? How about a slap in the face? It may seem rather extreme however, a San Francisco husband and wife duo would disagree.  A Thai cosmetic technique known as face-slapping “helps with wrinkles, makes your face slimmer and makes your pores smaller,” according to Mawin Sombuntham, who co-owns Tata Massage in San Francisco.

The crazy thing is people pay up to $350 for this wacky wrinkle treatment. The owner’s husband claims his wife can slap any ageing face back into shape.

Tata at the face-slapping salon she and her husband own in San Francisco.

Dr Nirdosh states ‘this might not be as crazy as you think as the force of the slap awakens  facial muscles that have been dormant for years by dilating the blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the area.  This creates mini skin cell tremors that instigate recovery to stimulate collagen production.

Tata will return to Thailand this year to learn butt-punching.

“It’s ancient Thai wisdom,” Sombuntham said. “It firms and shapes the butt.”

Sleeping for Beauty

Sleeping for beauty requires more than just restful sleep

 

Sleep well last night? A youthful face requires more than just a good night sleep. Sleep on your back – it prevents wrinkles from forming on the face. Whilst your face is scrunched up against the pillow, areas prone to fine lines and deep wrinkles will set in.
