Benefits and Side Effects
Botox is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set — “dynamic” wrinkles that appear while you’re moving your face, such as when you frown. “If you don’t move the muscle too much, you won’t form the wrinkle,” says Columbia University dermatologist Monica Halem, MD. She considers Botox preventive.
If you’re breastfeeding, pregnant, or plan to become pregnant, the FDA recommends that you talk to your doctor before starting Botox, Dysport, or Xeomin. Side effects are possible: headaches, bruising, pain at the site of injection, and, in fewer than 1% of cases, drooping eyelids or eyebrows that return to their natural position within a few months.
What you need to Knew Before Botox
When getting Botox, your first inclination might be to contact a medical professional , but you may also see other providers, or even spas, offering the treatment. While Botox injections are relatively simple, the treatment still needs to be done by a trained and experienced medical professional. If the injections are too deep, too low, or in the wrong spot, you could have negative side effects, like a droopy eyelid.
What’s it like to get Botox?
The process of getting Botox should be quick and simple. The practitioner will make a few injections in your treatment areas, and you will be on your way.
Pain, swelling, and bruising.
There may be some initial mild redness, swelling, or bruising, which should resolve quickly. The reaction is similar to getting a shot.
What results should you expect?
When done correctly, in injection amount and technique, Botox should give you a more youthful look. Typically, the results take a few days before they start to show.
Most patients will see the results of their Botox injection begin to appear after three or four days and continue to improve until about two weeks, when the results are at their maximum
What are the possible side effects?
Most patients don’t have issues beyond minor redness, bruising, or swelling.
How long does it last?
How long Botox lasts will be different for everyone. It also depends on the areas treated, and how many units were injected. On average, most Botox treatments last between two and six months.
Botox may change more than a few wrinkles.
Botox is known for battling wrinkles, but it could also have some impacts you didn’t expect or desire.
Is it preventative?
Although you may not have wrinkles yet, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider Botox. Starting treatment before wrinkles start forming can limit their development and reduce the treatments needed later.
It’s not only for wrinkles.
Botox can be beneficial for many other issues, including treating muscle spasms, heavy sweating, and migraines.
Does Botox train your muscles?
With continued and consistent Botox treatments, you could see an increase in longevity. That’s because repeated use can cause a gradual relaxing of the muscles. The less active they are, the less they work to create wrinkles.
