Botox is one of the most widely known cosmetic procedures. Celebrities talk freely about their Botox injections, making this non-surgical treatment feel accessible to everyone. During a Botox treatment, a doctor injects prescription medication into the muscles of the face, reducing the appearance of lines and creases. Educate yourself about Botox and the typical misconceptions associated with non-surgical wrinkle treatment.
Why Choose Botox?
Do you have crow’s feet, laugh lines, or worry lines between your eyebrows? Wrinkles can negatively impact self-esteem, making you view yourself as tired, irritated, or aged. Botox injections allow patients to visibly smooth wrinkles without undergoing invasive surgery. A “lunchtime procedure,” Botox takes less than fifteen minutes and causes minimal discomfort. Patients usually see results within several days of the injection. The skin continues to smooth for up to 30 days, improving a patient’s appearance subtly over the course of several weeks. The effects of Botox last up to 4 months, giving patients smoother, more youthful looking skin without the commitment of a surgical facelift.
Botox: Fact vs Fiction
- If I have a Botox treatment, I won’t be able to move my face.
Botox injections decrease the muscle activity that cause frown lines. They do not affect your ability to show emotion, but they do reduce visible creases when laughing or frowning.
- Everyone will know I had Botox.
