HOW DOES IT WORK?
How does that help you from looking older? In the hands of an experienced aesthetic doctor, Botox can be injected into specific muscles that activate the fine lines around the forehead, eyes and mouth. They usually look the most prominent when you squint, smile or frown. By temporarily paralyzing those particular muscles, your lines won’t appear whenever you talk or when your facial expressions change.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A BOTOX TREATMENT?
It’s not a painful procedure since the doctor will only be using very fine needles, but you can experience some mild discomfort or soreness that will go away in just a few minutes.
IS THERE A LONG RECOVERY TIME?
ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS AND RISKS?
In rare cases, there can be complications like drooping eyes, crooked smiles or drooling. This is usually caused by fake Botox injections or applications by an inexperienced or unlicensed aesthetician who has no training in giving facial fillers. To avoid these risks, always get your Botox injections from credible medical professionals.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BOTOX INJECTIONS?
So for many people who want a more youthful face, Botox is a safer and more affordable way of getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles. They may also feel that Botox looks more natural. Instead of altering their face shape, they are simply “freezing” the muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles to look prominent. You still look like you – just a younger version of you!
