There are two schools of thought when it comes to Botox. On one side are those who are cautious and maybe even a little confused. On the other, are millions of people who swear by the treatment. Is it right for you? We’ll explain everything you need to know and let you decide for yourself.
What does Botox do?
The highly purified toxin temporarily erases or reduces frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines, among a long laundry list of other uses.
Will Botox make me look frozen or cartoonish?
When administered correctly, Botox has amazing effects, restoring youth to your facial features. It’s only when too much is injected in the wrong spots that the frozen look appears. As with any surgical procedure, it’s important to be treated by an experienced professional. Luckily, we are.
Does Botox have side effects?
The possible side effects are extremely limited and short-lived. 1-5% of cases can have mild droopiness in the eyelids, which usually goes away within a few weeks. Some patients experience slight bruising.
Does Botox hurt?
Botox is no more or less painful than other similar injections. Some professionals offer topical anesthesia or use ice to numb the area for your comfort.
How long does Botox Last?
Results will vary from patient to patient, but you can typically expect a range of three and a half to four months.
