Nobody wants to feel self-conscious or unattractive when out in public.

There is no reason to feel afraid of bumping into an old schoolmate or friend if you are getting Botox treatments.

What is Botox?

As you age, your skin can start to do several things that you don’t want it to do. For example, it can start to sage in certain spots, and it can get thin and dry. Over time, all of the actions you make with your face, such as facial expressions, will cause these changes. Plus, your skin no longer is able to “bounce” back when it is stretched out of place by your facial muscles. Botox helps as it is injected under the surface of the skin to numb your serves at the site. This will block the signals those nerves are sending to the brain so that the facial muscles relax, which in turn relaxes your skin. Botox can help with:

  • Sagging and hollow cheeks
  • Smoothing of wrinkles
  • Filling out thinning lips
  • Wrinkle prevention in the future

What Side Effects Can I Expect After a Botox Treatment?

One of the best things about Botox is that there are very few side effects. You can expect there to be some discomfort when the injection is taking place, and some bruising or swelling after the fact. A Botox needle is very tiny, so the “wound” that is left behind is barely noticeable. Unlike with a surgery that requires weeks of healing, Botox allows you to go right back to work, school, or whatever else you have planned for the day. If you do find that you have pain or discomfort around the site, it should go away after applying ice.

Am I A Good Candidate For Botox?

It’s always best to consult a doctor or a professional to discuss whether Botox is the right option for you. It is an appropriate treatment for most people. In some cases, such as those who are smokers or are in very poor physical condition, the doctor may recommend another treatment.
