Botox is one of the most beloved cosmetic treatments in the U.S. Just last year a record breaking 7 million botulinum toxin treatments were performed. Men and women love their results and the simplicity of this minimally invasive treatment. If you’re new to Botox, come see what all the hype is about. Discover Botox for yourself! We think you’ll love it just as much as we do.
Here are five things to expect after your first Botox treatment:
Return to Life Immediately
Botox is one of the quickest cosmetic treatments we offer. Start to finish, Botox takes less than 30 minutes. Many patients come in for treatment on their lunch break and go back to work right after, often with time left over to grab a sandwich. You can return to work and all regular activities immediately, with no downtime. Just avoid exercise until the day after treatment.
Common Side Effects After Botox
Side effects are minimal after Botox. You may experience some slight bruising in the treatment area. This can be covered with makeup and is usually very minor. Any side effects typically fade in a day or two.
Botox results take around 4 days to appear. Once you see your results, enjoy them for up to 3-4 months. The area treated and your body’s response to Botox will determine how long your treatment results last. We can maintain your look with regularly scheduled Botox treatments.
Many first-time Botox patients worry that they’ll look frozen or fake after Botox. With a skilled injector, no one needs to know you’ve had treatment. Your results will be subtle and natural looking. You’ll still be able to make normal facial expressions. Look refreshed and rejuvenated, not frozen or overdone.
Botox is a wrinkle treatment, but it isn’t for every wrinkle. Botox works on wrinkles that are caused by muscle movement. Every time you smile, laugh, frown, or squint, your facial muscles contract. These contractions lead to permanent furrows and wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. As you age, these lines become visible at all times, not just when you’re making an expression.
Botox relaxes the muscles that cause these wrinkles. This treatment prevents these wrinkles from becoming worse and allows the skin to smooth out, erasing wrinkles that have already developed. If you have wrinkles that Botox won’t treat, we can explore other options like dermal fillers.
