Botox and other treatments “manage” the exterior without addressing the inside of the body. We don’t consciously think about it, but the ravages of our lifestyle gets reflected first on the insides and then on the outsides. When the body gets affected inside, it first sends warning signals. Pain, discomfort, fever are examples of these signals. These signals are symptoms of a larger problem and the body is drawing our attention to the same. Think of an ankle which hurts mildly at the beginning of a game you are playing and as the game proceeds, the pain is becoming increasingly obvious and if you continue to ignore it, you will be carried out in a stretcher with a torn ligament or broken ankle. In trying to accommodate the pain you were experiencing, you put additional weight on the other leg, and changed your stance increasing the strain of the body on parts that previously had not been exposed to such strain. Those body parts are now experiencing some discomfort. All discomfort results eventually in pain and then eventually the failure of some part or organ. The results of this torture shows on your face, and push it along for years and it permanently etches itself on your face. So what is the Botox going to do for you.
Botox will temporarily (say for a year or two) provide additional cushioning inside the face, so that your skin in once again taut and tight. It has done a cosmetic change on your face, but the inside continues to scream for attention.
“Hey boss, I broke my ankle and you want to know how?” says the voice on the phone and Kojak replies.
