Many people are opting for Botox injections to smooth out wrinkles and reverse the ravages of pollution, the Sun, and the effects of aging.
However, there are some things you need to know about Botox before you start receiving the injections.
This is where a consultation at Laser Therapy Health & Wellness Center can help. Our trained professionals will review the benefits and risks and discuss which procedure is best for you.
Whichever way you decide to go you should be aware of the following information that will help you decide if Botox is right for you.
Botox is not permanent
Once Botox is injected into the muscles it takes approximately 10 days for the full result and will usually last 3-5 months.
While the price can vary, it is usually affordable. After that, you need to make an appointment to have the injections repeated in order to maintain the wrinkle free look.
Make sure the person doing the injecting is certified and qualified to do the procedure.
Don’t be afraid to ask to see the certification paperwork of the person who is going to be doing the injections.
Be Aware of the Side Effects
Botox may have side Effects but the proportion of people that may experience it is very low:
3% suffer Droopy eyelids
2% Muscle weakness
2% Facial pain
1% Indigestion or heartburn
1% High blood pressure
1% Eyelid swelling
But many accept this to look younger and have wrinkle free complexion.
Along with the side effects, here are some things that you should not do after your treatment.
1. Don’t sweat. This can impede the effects you’re attempting to achieve.
2. Don’t drink alcohol.
3. Don’t rub the area or massage the muscles.
4. Make sure you are not using Blood Thinner medication
5. Don’t exert yourself.
Any of the above items listed can nullify the Botox treatment.
If you don’t have any side effect and you don’t run afoul of the don’ts, your face can look up to 10 years younger in just 10 days.
Remember also that if you are 50 you can’t expect to look like you did when you were 20.
This is why it is vital that you seek a medical professional for a consult at Laser Therapy Health & Wellness Center and make sure that you have all your bases covered before starting the treatments.
If you do this, you’ll be much more likely to reach your goal of reclaiming your youth and beauty in only a few days’ time.
