Must-know facts about Botox before you agree to get injected on the face
The use of Botulinum toxin or Botox has greatly increased in the last two decades functionally more so in cosmetic treatments.
Cosmetic clinics largely use Botox, dermatologists, trained, and some untrained practitioners also. It is considered a magic drug to reduce unwanted frowning lines, wrinkles for cosmetic purposes. Importantly, the result of Botox is not very immediate as people think; it may take two to three days for the real effect of injectable medicine to set in.
Take an informed call
- Botox does not remove the lines of imperfections or ageing wisdom from your face. It is not a treatment to straighten out the unwanted lines from the face.
- It is more preventative than restorative, as the experts suggest. Its active ingredient “freezes” facial muscles to keep you from contracting them in ways that deepen lines and wrinkles.
- The average duration for Botox for glabella the lines between the brows, forehead, and lateral crows’ feet could be approximately three to four months.
- Some factors fade out the effect of Botox faster. Exercise, too much sweating, and if one is very expressive using facial muscles, the treatment may not last long. It is certainly not painless as advertised.
- Many people believe that Botox is only appropriate for someone over 30 or 40 plus age group, but some physicians think that treating the skin when it is younger and smoother will improve the effects of the injections. Having Botox injections in your 20’s is possible even if lines haven’t begun to set in. Botox truly has the best effects when used as a preventative measure to wrinkles.
- Botox & Dermal Fillers are not the same as confusing many times. Usage of both is meant for antiaging and reduction of fine lines or wrinkles. Botox relaxes the muscles that create wrinkles. Dermal Fillers restores and adds volume to facial tissue, making you youthful.
- Getting Botox injected is an expensive beauty treatment, especially since it does not have a long-term impact. Psychologists say that people get addicted to the ‘best look’ image they like to see of themselves. And this starts the visits to the cosmetic clinics, which requires a decent amount of money. To induce injectable medicine in the skin multiple times to get a radiant glow on the face may not always be a good idea. Time to ponder.
