Frequently Asked Questions About Botox
Botox has been around for some time now; however, it is still a fairly new concept to many people. This may be due to the misunderstanding of it and the fact that multiple needles are going into the face. This alone can be very scary and off-putting to tons of people. While Botox may seem scary at first and quite frankly a little weird, we see so many people come back for a second appointment because of how happy they are with the results. After finding out all of the benefits, risks, how the procedure works, and seeing the results, most find themselves to be a huge fan of what they once were afraid of. At Beaute Therapies we know how frightening it can be to go into a cosmetic procedure for the first time. This is why we always set up a consultation before the treatment so you can ask any questions you may have and express any concerns; however, we can understand wanting to get some facts before even going into a consultation. This is where our frequently asked questions guide comes into play. We created this guide to get some insight into the consultation and the procedure so you can make the best and most informed decision or yourself. Our doctors are here for you, we want you to look and feel your best, but on your terms.
What Exactly is Botox?
Botox, or botulism toxin, is a compound made by bacteria that is injected into areas on the face. After injecting the compound, the compound will affect the nerves in the face making it so when you go to move a nerve it cannot move to the extent as it used to and therefore will not cause a wrinkle to form.
Where is the Botox Injected?
Botox is commonly injected in many areas of the face to give you the best results. Some of these areas include the jawline, brow furrows, crow’s feet, between the eyes, the forehead, and glabella creases. These areas tend to carry the most wrinkles; although, if one area needs a touch-up and the others don’t you can get the one done and wait to do the rest of the face. It’s also quite common to get Botox injected in areas that are not the face such as the underarms. People do this to reduce the amount they sweat and reduce body odor. This can make a huge difference for those who find that they sweat excessively and have terrible body odor as a result. Injecting the underarms has been helpful for so many people who struggle with self-esteem issues because of the amount they sweat.
How Long Does Botox Last?
It usually lasts between 3 and 4 months and will take between 1 and 10 days to fully kick in. The best part about Botox is that the more frequently you get it over time the more likely you will need to get it done in the future. If you come in every 3 to 4 months consistently for years your face will need fewer touch-ups as the nerves will have less and less function.
Who Should Get the Treatment Done?
Realistically, anyone who wants the treatment can get it done, but, you should only get it done if you feel that it can help you achieve the appearance you want, prevent wrinkles, or help with a medical condition. Botox is a great option for many people because of how temporary it is. Since it lasts only 3 to 4 months, someone could try it and decide that they don’t like how it feels or looks and never get it again without having to worry about a permanent change being made. This procedure is also great for those who have a twitching eye, chronic migraines, and sweat excessively.
