8+ Things You Should Know About Botox

Have you been considering Botox? If you’ve been thinking about Botox, you may have some questions. Here are some Botox facts!

What you need to know about Botox

1. Botox works by blocking signals between the nerves and the muscles, which keeps muscles from contracting and relaxes and smooths out wrinkles.

2. It is a neurotoxin, which sounds like a bad thing to inject into your body. However, it is very safe when it is used correctly, has been used in cosmetic procedures for decades, and has been used successfully with millions of patients.

3. It is used to reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth, frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. However, it has medical uses, too. It is used to treat neck spasms, lazy eye, chronic migraines, and overactive bladder.

4. The procedure to get Botox is noninvasive, nonsurgical, and quick. It is done in the doctor’s office and there is no downtime afterwards, although you should avoid strenuous activity such as a trip to the gym.

5. Most patients say that there is very little pain – just a bit of a pinch. You may be bruised a bit afterward, but this will fade within a few days.

6. The effects of Botox can last as long as 6 months, although it may take a couple of weeks to really see these effects. After your Botox has worn off, it is safe to get more injections.

7. Botox can be combined with other procedures, depending on the results you would like to see. Your doctor can help you decide which other procedures are right for you.

8. Botox is a great way to reduce wrinkles and get younger, smoother-looking skin if you have tried at-home creams with no results, but you aren’t quite ready yet for a surgical procedure such as a face lift.
