If you’re considering Botox but aren’t really sure how it works, we’re here to answer your questions. Here are some of our most asked questions about Botox.
What Exactly Is Botox?
Botox is a prescription medication used to reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows, known as glabellar lines. It is also effective for treating laugh lines, crow’s feet, and other wrinkles. It is given by injection only. Because it is a prescription medication and knowledge of proper placement of injections is required for optimal results, it can only be prescribed by an actual medical doctor.
Who Is A Good Candidate For Treatment?
We recommend Botox as a suitable treatment for anyone between the ages of 18 and 65 years old with no underlying conditions or allergies that would prohibit the use of this medication.
What Is The Recovery Time?
The great thing about Botox is that there is no downtime involved. Treatment is quick and minimally invasive, requiring only a few tiny injections into the muscles. If you are looking for great results without having to go in for surgery or having to keep your face covered for days, Botox could be the choice for you.
Does It Hurt?
One of the most asked questions we get about all of our services is “does this treatment hurt?” You will be happy to hear that the needles used for Botox injections are extremely small. You may feel some slight discomfort but it should be minimal. We do everything we can to minimize discomfort for our clients.
Is It Permanent?
Botox is not a permanent solution. For most patients, it lasts 3 to 4 months. Of course, every person’s body is different and results will vary from individual to individual. For some, it may last up to 6 months even.
