Botox is a substance that is made from botulinum toxin, a compound that helps to freeze muscle contractions. When injected under the surface of the skin, Botox can fill in deep wrinkles on the brow line, crow’s feet, and “11” lines that appear on the insides of the eyebrows.
Botox is one of the most widely used cosmetic treatments, as it offers fast and effective results without complications or side effects. Most people, regardless of their skin type, tolerate Botox well and experience long-lasting results.
First, you meet with your provider to discuss your treatment plan and your aesthetic goals.
When it’s time for your treatment, they may numb the targeted area with ice or a numbing cream. Then, they administer the Botox solution with a fine needle, just underneath the surface of the skin. The entire process only takes about 10 minutes.
While you might feel a slight tingling, pinching, or pricking sensation with Botox treatment, it’s not painful. Since there is no downtime or recovery associated with the procedure, you can return to your normal activities right away. Your skin might be sensitive to the touch for a few hours after the injections.
The advantage of Botox is that results are noticeable almost immediately. You’ll tend to see full results after about 24-48 hours for moderate or severe frown lines.
New patients are sometimes concerned that Botox will make them look like they’ve had “work” done, but the treatment only serves to enhance your natural beauty. When administered by a trained professional, Botox doesn’t affect your ability to smile, frown, laugh, or make other facial expressions.
The effects of Botox treatment generally last up to four months.
If you’re considering your first cosmetic enhancement or you’re wary about trying laser therapies or surgery, Botox may be a good option. It can deliver quick, dramatic results that improve the appearance of your skin without recovery time or potential complications.
