Is Botox Right For You?
Botox is a popular injectable cosmetic treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Botox works by relaxing the facial muscles, and it is commonly used to treat wrinkles and expression lines on the forehead, between the brows and around the eyes. Here are some commonly asked questions about Botox, to help you decide if it is the right cosmetic treatment for you.
How long does the treatment take?
Botox is an in-office procedure with no downtime. Total treatment time is no more than 10 to 15 minutes, depending on how many units your practitioner uses.
Is there recovery time following Botox treatment?
There is no downtime associated with Botox injections and you will be able to return to work or other activities almost immediately. Occasionally, you may experience some mild redness or bruising at the injection site, but this typically fades within a day or two. Our office will advise you of any post-treatment instructions following your appointment.
Will I see results right away?
Results from Botox injections are fully visible within 7 to 10 days from your procedure and results typically last for a period of 3 to 4 months, at which time you can have your procedure repeated.
What is a good age to consider getting Botox?
Getting cosmetic injections is a very personal decision and there really is no right or wrong age to start using Botox. Some patients in their 20s use Botox as a preventative treatment at the first sign of facial wrinkles, while others begin using Botox well into their 40s, as an alternative to more invasive surgery.
Is Botox safe?
Yes, Botox treatments are safe and FDA-approved for the treatment of facial lines and wrinkles, and a number of other health concerns, including migraine headaches.
