Cost –Although the cost of Botox injections vary depending on what issues you wish to correct, Botox most often costs significantly less than most other procedures
Surgery Time – the usually takes only 10-15 minutes for most people and requires little or no anesthesia
Recovery Time – Botox treatments have no recovery time, as opposed to surgery in which healing time can take 1 to 2 weeks.
Minimal Side Effects – While some people experience minor bruising or swelling for a few days, if Botox is administered in a clinical environment, by a trained professional, there should be no serious side effects
Temporary – The effects of Botox will begin to wear off after a few months if it doesn’t actually give you the look you are hoping for.
After-Effects – After Botox wears off, most people still see a significant reduction in the visibility of wrinkles
A few standard practices before and after injections can maximize results, such as applying ice to the targeted area to reduce swelling and pain. The injection procedure takes roughly 10 minutes and patients can immediately return to their regular activities. However, care should be taken not to touch the face as rubbing the injected area can cause bruising. Botox should not be used while pregnant or breastfeeding.
There are a few negative side effects that may result if too much Botox is used or if it is not applied by a certified professional; however, the benefits outweigh the risks. This product benefits those who desire to see a crease free, smooth complexion without more invasive surgical procedures.
