Many times when people think about botox they think about an “old” person or a “frozen” face. However, this is all a stereotype. Botox is for everyone! Botox is a medication that is FDA approved for the treatment of “dynamic” wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are the lines we create whenever we “react”, for example when we raise our eyebrows, squint, or make an angry face.
Prevention is key! You can stop wrinkles from forming if you act quick! For example, if you begin getting botox in your mid 20’s then you will not develop deep “static” wrinkles later in life. Static wrinkles are the lines we see on our skin whenever our skin is at rest.
Botox is FDA approved to last up to 4 months. Retreatment is needed about every 3-4 months. If you stay on top of your regular botox treatments then eventually you will need a lesser dose of botox because your muscles will develop memory and stop reacting as much.
Many worry about the safety of botox. Botox is safe when given in the recommended doses to treat fine lines & wrinkles. It could become unsafe if given in large quantities. Just as Tylenol is safe when taken as directed, but if you were to take an entire bottle of Tylenol that would be harmful.
After being treated with botox you should not plan any vigorous activity for 24 hours. It is also recommended that you remain upright for 4 hours post injections. It takes about 5 to 7 days for botox to work to its entirety however, many notice its benefits right away.
Botox can do wonders for your skin and overall appearance! It is a quick procedure with minimal discomfort that can make you feel like a million bucks!
