Take Advantage of Botox Treatment - Read These 5 Tips

If you’ve never had Botox before, you might be wondering if it’s worth it. What the benefits of Botox treatment are? If it is painful or expensive? 

Before undergoing any medical procedure, it is important to determine if this treatment is right for you and to know what to expect. So, take a look below at these tips for getting Botox injections for the first time.


What is Botox?

Botox comes from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum which in its potent form can cause an illness called botulism. However, a purified protein is extracted from this, and this is what is injected in a Botox treatment. It is formulated for both cosmetic and medical use and has been found to offer many benefits.


Most people are aware of its cosmetic ability to relax facial muscles to soften the look or eliminate the skin of wrinkles, but there are many other benefits to Botox. These would include the treatment of migraines and chronic facial pain, symptoms of tooth grinding and clenching, TMJ pain in the jaw joint, and muscle spasms. It has also been used as a treatment for excessive sweating.


So, what five things do you need to know about getting Botox?


1. Botox Can Prevent Wrinkles

Many people are under the impression that Botox only gets rid of existing wrinkles on the face. In fact, Botox can prevent wrinkles that haven’t appeared yet.

The younger you start your Botox injections, the less likely you will produce the wrinkles associated with the repetitive movements of the muscles as you age.

2. Botox Is not Like Other Cosmetic Procedures

When you think of cosmetic procedures, you often think of surgery. One of the advantages of Botox treatment is that it is not! After a proper assessment of your individual concerns, the treatment is relatively fast. You could be out of your treatment appointment within an hour.

Some people even get Botox during their lunch breaks. Dr. Caroline Krivuzoff-Sanderson does her best to make the injections comfortable! Botox treatment cost isn’t as expensive as other cosmetic procedures either.

3. You’ll Look Better As The Days Go By

Another great thing about Botox is that it gets better as the days go by. Don’t expect to see the results as you’re walking out of your appointment. It takes up to two full weeks for the final results to show.

4. It Is For Your Skin Type?

If you’re worried that you don’t have the right skin type to get Botox, don’t. Botox works well on all skin types. Adults over the age of 18 are eligible.


5. It is Not Permanent

Unlike other more costly cosmetic procedures, Botox is not permanent. The effects will wear off between 3-4 months. Your face will not look “frozen”, and you will still be able to make facial expressions. Most patients say their facial features look more “rested” after getting the treatment.


Is Botox Treatment For You?

If you’re still wondering whether Botox treatment is for you, it’s time to ask a highly trained and skilled provider. Dr Caroline Krivuzoff-Sanderson has been offering Botox services to many happy customers.
