July 23, 2016|Tabitha Shiflett
Although, Botox is the one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the U.S., many still have their doubts. Let us help you make the decision – here’s a list of questions you’ve probably wondered, but were too afraid to ask.
Is Botox painful?
Like most injections, Botox can be uncomfortable, especially between the eyebrows. Most doctors offer a topical anesthesia 10 minutes prior to injection to numb the area.
Does Botox really prevent wrinkles?
Botox, and its competitors like Xeomin and Dysport, are highly purified toxins that can temporarily reduce or erase vertical frowns, horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s-feet.
What’s the ideal age to start thinking about Botox?
If you don’t have any wrinkles to hide, then Botox probably isn’t something you should be looking into.
Will my friends notice?
Yes, and no. A quality Botox treatment will leave you looking more cheerful, fresher, and sometimes younger. Poorly executed Botox treatments leave a smooth and shiny finish on the forehead.
What about looking frozen? And Feeling numb?
Botox shouldn’t affect your nerves or make you feel numb. When used correctly, Botox can lift the brow to give a sincere and appealing look.
Are there side effects?
Unfortunately, every drug has side effects. Luckily, only one in five percent of Botox patients will experience a mild droopiness of the eyebrow or eyelid, which usually goes away within two weeks.
How long does it last?
If done correctly, Botox typically lasts anywhere from three to four months.
What should be expected the day following my procedure?
Botox results begin to show within a few days and develop gradually over the course of two weeks.
