Botox blocks nerve impulses, which helps the muscles in the injected area relax. The results of Botox can be seen within a few days. The results of Botox can last up to four months. Unlike many other procedures, you will be able to get results from Botox without even looking like you had work done.
Not only is Botox non-invasive, but it is also less expensive than many other cosmetic procedures. Furthermore, Botox is an extremely safe treatment. The chances of experiencing serious complications from Botox are low. Minor side effects may include things such as redness and swelling in the treatment area, which usually goes away within 24 to 48 hours.
There is no special preparation needed for Botox. However, if you are taking any type of medication, then you will need to let your doctor know this before you get treatment. If you take a blood-thinner, then your doctor may recommend that you stop using it until after your procedure.
Botox is an in-office procedure that can be completed in just 10 minutes. You can leave the office after your treatment has been completed.
