The Guide to Your First Botox Ever
It probably won’t come as any surprise to you that the number of people using Botox is on a rise. You may have read online that it’s all very simple and straightforward, but still have a few unanswered questions. Ideally you will want to hear reviews from people who have actually had the procedure carried out rather than just the cosmetic surgeon selling their services. This guide will answer those questions and help you to make an informed decision on how you can use this treatment safely before you go in for your first ever Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox is a liquid made from two chemicals that is injected under the skin that act as Anti-Wrinkle Treatments to improve the appearance of:
- Top Lip Lines
- The Centre of The Chin
- Vertical Lines Between Eyes
- Crow’s Feet
- Horizontal Forehead Lines
- Bunny Lines on The Side of The Nose
- Down-Turned Corners of The Mouth
- Turkey Neck
How Long Does Botox Last?
Botox lasts 3 to 4 months and can last longer if you continue having repeat treatments. After your first treatment, it will take 2 to 3 days to see the effect and then up to 2 weeks to see the full effect.
How Much Will It Cost?
Price varies depending on the chosen treatment and chosen professional.
Does It Hurt
The 10-minute simple Botox treatment for wrinkle relaxers is the least painful treatment as it’s given via a small needle. The micro needles mean that you barely feel a thing. If you choose one of the other treatments, there may be a bit of discomfort.
Who Shouldn’t Have Botox
Pregnant woman, nursing mothers and patients with neuromuscular diseases should not be given Botox. If you have allergies, you should also think carefully about Botox and discuss it with a professional and medical practitioner before making a decision.
Are There Any Side Effects
There are reports of side effects ranging from bruising, drooping eyelids or eyebrows to headaches and flu-like symptoms. These are mainly seen when very large amounts of Botox have been applied. There are also reports of allergic reactions, which are reasonably rare, but still something to be aware of before going in for your first Botox.
What Can Go Wrong
Sometimes Botox can go wrong. This most commonly happens when people try a dangerous D.I.Y kit that shouldn’t have been available to the public in the first place, or when Botox is given by someone who doesn’t know what they are doing (non-professional novices). This also happens when a patient insists on having something despite expert knowledge telling them it’s not a good idea. If you choose an expert who is experienced, then you will be able to avoid problems.
