You might be wondering exactly what it is, what it does and how it works. Well, worry not for you are just about to find out. Read on and discover the secrets of the Botox treatment. Ready? Let us get into it.
What is Botox?
Botox treatment is the use of a medicinal substance (botox), injected into the skin to curb muscle movement and growth. This will ensure that you do not develop wrinkles, and if you already do, it keeps them from blowing out of proportion. This treatment has been used for a while now and is quickly gaining popularity all over the world, being used by the old and the young alike. You might have been keeping tabs with some celebrities who just never seem to grow a day older and you are wondering what their secret is. When asked, most say it is eating healthy and working out. When that may be true, their faces are blatantly going against the laws of nature. I will let you in on a secret, most of them use botox treatment; now you know.
The use of Botox spans beyond wrinkle removal to other medical purposes as well for instance inhibiting excessive sweating.
What Makes Botox Tick?
Botox works in a very simple way, by blocking signals from the brain and nerves from getting to certain muscles. By so doing, the muscles tend to relax and voila! Bye-bye wrinkles and facial lines. The procedure is just the simple injection of botox to your skin, easy right?
Does Botox hurt? I know, not most of us are fans of needles, and for good reason too. However, you need not worry; it only has a slight stinging sensation, that’s all. A few shots and your face is good as new.
After the procedure is done, how long will botox take to work? You may wonder. The effects of botox are usually noticed 2-3 days after the procedure. However, for some people, it may take slightly longer, so do not worry if after three days you have not noticed some improvement. The full-fledged botox results, which we are all after, come after about a week.
For first time users, it may take a little bit longer for the effects to manifest since the muscles have not been relaxed before. After a treatment, you should always go back to get checked by our professionals to monitor the progress.
How Long Does Botox Last?
The effects of botox last anywhere between 3-6 months. For some, it may be longer, especially for repeat users. For new users whose muscles have not been relaxed before, the effects may wear off faster than regulars. So do not worry if the results fade off earlier than expected after your first treatment.
Is Botox Safe?
You might be wary of the treatment because you might have heard somewhere in the past that it is poisonous and dangerous for you. Well, they could not be further from the truth. So, is Botox safe for me? You may ask. The safe use of botox all boils down to the careful procedure of treatment in terms of the purity and the amount of the dosage. At MiracleFace MedSpa, our priority is your well-being, so you don’t have to worry whether it is safe for you since you are in the safest hands.
More so, botox does not have any medical side effects, so that should not be a bother to you. A slight headache after the procedure is the worst that it can get. This disappears soon after you take some painkillers or after a rest. There can be some cosmetic side-effects such as drooping eyelids and the frozen forehead if not properly administered that is why you should always get a professional to do it.
