What To Expect From Botox Treatments

While many people have heard of Botox, the number of myths and misunderstandings about the product often overshadows the amazing opportunity this safe and very effective treatment for lines and wrinkles provides. Of course, Botox treatments are also used for a variety of other medical conditions including to prevent migraine headaches and even in treating conditions of the eyes.

The cosmetic use of Botox treatments has been readily available for over 20 years, and it is estimated that over 11 million procedures have been completed by licensed professionals in that time. The treatment has literally changed how people look and how they see themselves, helping to build self-confidence with a more youthful looking appearance.

Your Appointment

Your first appointment for Botox treatments is often the most difficult, especially if you are not sure what to expect. This is one of the most important reasons to work with a licensed and certified provider and to ensure you are comfortable in their professional knowledge of this treatment.

The Process

The process with Botox treatments is very simple, quick, and painless. A thin needle will be injected into the muscle just below the surface of the skin in the area around the wrinkles or fine lines.

There is very little sensation at the time of the injection or afterward. Some patients may have slight pain around the injection site with swelling that is typically very short in duration. The full effects of the treatment will not be evident for about five to seven days, at which time you will see a smoother look to the area treated and the complete removal of fine lines and wrinkles.

How it Works

Botox works by actually stopping or blocking the signals from the nerves that cause the muscles under the skin to contract to create the lines and wrinkles. When the nerves aren’t stimulating muscle contraction, the surface of the skin appears smooth.

Botox treatments, depending on the individual will last four to six months in most individuals. Some people may see a slightly longer duration of the effects. You can receive Botox injections on an ongoing and regular basis without any negative side effects, effectively halting the aging process for many patients.
