What will happen during my Botox procedure?
So you have decided that Botox is the best way to treat your bothersome crow’s feet or forehead wrinkles and lines. Now you would like to know a bit more about what will happen during your Botox procedure. Here is a brief overview of what you can expect during your treatment:
- Firstly your doctor will mark the areas to be treated carefully and then thoroughly clean them. They may also apply a topical anesthetic to the area at the same time.
- Next, they will carefully inject the Botox into the treatment area. You may require more than one injection for each treatment area.
- Your doctor may then apply pressure and/or ice to reduce swelling.
Very small needles are used to inject Botox, therefore there will be little or no discomfort from the injections. The injections themselves will only take a few seconds to administer.
How long do Botox injections last?
A common question from patients looking to get Botox treatment is ‘How long does Botox last?’ Well, it is important to realise that the effects of Botox are temporary and, therefore, you will need to have repeated treatments in order to maintain your amazing results long-term.
Typically Botox results last for between 3 and 6 months, after which time your fine lines and wrinkles will start to slowly appear again. The following factors can affect how quickly your Botox effects will last for:
- How deep your wrinkles are
- Your age
- Your skin’s elasticity
- The area being treated
Having Botox administered by an experienced doctor will help to maximise the length of time that your results will last. This is because a highly qualified professional will know exactly how much Botox to inject and where exactly to administer it in order to optimise the results that you achieve.
Is Botox safe to use?
Despite knowing how effective Botox can be at banishing those stubborn fine lines and wrinkles, you may be still on the fence about whether or not to go ahead with the treatment. One of the main concerns that patients have when considering Botox is whether or not it is safe?
Botox injections are the most common cosmetic treatment performed in the United States. The FDA-approved treatment has been shown by countless studies to be incredibly safe for both short-term and long-term use. The side effects associated with Botox treatment are minor and short-lived. These adverse effects include localised swelling, bruising and redness, as well as some systemic effects such as headaches, nausea, upset stomachs or flu-like symptoms.
