The beginning of a new year inspires us to make resolutions to look better and feel better. That might include adding Botox Cosmetic injections to your skincare regimen. Botox is one of the easiest and most effective treatments for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your beautiful face. Botox will almost immediately make you look and feel younger, more rested, and flawless when administered by a qualified practitioner. Before making an appointment with Flawless Laser Center, get to know Botox Cosmetic.
How Does Botox Cosmetic Work?
Botox, or short for botulinum toxin, blocks certain signals from the nerves that cause the muscles to contract. It acts as a shield between the brain and the muscle, keeping them relaxed. Botox treatments are popular for treating the lines, folds, wrinkles on the forehead, the #11 lines, crows feet around the eyes, smile lines around the mouth, and eyebrow drooping. Botox is also used for various non-cosmetic medical conditions, including treating migraine headaches, bladder dysfunction, excessive sweating, Bells Palsy, and eye twitching.
What to Expect with Botox Cosmetic Treatments
Botox has grown to be one of the most common and popular treatments for wrinkles and fine lines, and more. Injections usually take approximately 15 minutes with little or no recovery. Your team may suggest that exercising, lifting, and other physical activities are put on hold 24 hours. One thing to realize is that Botox treatments are not permanent, and you will need to consult with the expert team at Flawless Laser Center. They are qualified and experts in administering Botox injections properly and will provide the best treatment to ensure the longest-lasting results. They will work one on one with you to create a customized treatment program. After the injection, the effects usually appear within a few hours, and the full results typically appear within a week. Botox injections will last approximately three to four months but will vary from person to person. The first treatment might last less than the second and third ones. You’ll see that over time, as your body gets used to not using its muscles as much, the Botox treatments may last longer. The Flawless Laser Center team may also suggest additional treatments for deeper lines that Botox may not be effective in treating. If you decide not to continue with treatments, your muscles will begin to work again, and your lines and wrinkles will return.
Are Botox Cosmetic Injections Safe?
Botox Cosmetic is the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the entire world! It is estimated that six million Botox injections are performed safely and effectively each year. Botox treatments are safe when performed by a qualified team like the experts at Flawless Laser Center. It is not recommended to have Botox Cosmetic injections administered by someone without the proper qualifications. Proper procedures must be followed to get a positive, balanced outcome. There are some side effects associated with Botox, including minimal and mild flu-like symptoms, fatigue, headache, injection site bruising, dry mouth, rashes, swelling, temporary drooping of eyebrows, and eyelids. In extremely rare cases, some people experience blurred vision and trouble breathing.
