Everything You Were Afraid To Ask About Botox!
We believe that the more information that is available about Botox and facial fillers, to our patients, the easier it is for them to decide whether Botox treatments will give them the results they desire. At our Birmingham, MI Med Spa we can answer all of your Botox questions in a consultation, to help you determine if Botox injections are right for you!
In the meantime, here are answers to some commonly asked Botox questions, that help reveal why Botox is the world’s most popular, non-invasive injectable.
Will Botox “Freeze” My Face and Leave Me Numb?
An experienced Botox doctor or nurse will use the proper Botox dosage, injected into the correct muscles to deliver a flawless, natural look that does not appear “frozen”. Since Botox targets the muscles and not the nerves, you won’t feel numb or lose sensation. A skilled professional will correctly administer the injections by judging the size of the muscles and account for the correct dosage.
Remember, someone with less cosmetic procedure experience or training (such as a salon, a mall location or even a dentist!) can inadvertently cause an unattractive, unwanted, frozen result. Therefore, it’s important to alway select a professionally trained doctor or nurse to perform the Botox injections.
Is Botox Painful?
At the Birmingham, MI Med Spa, we offer a topical anesthesia used ten minutes before facial fillers or Botox injections. The specific area can also be numbed with ice.
Since Botox is an injection, the patient may feel a slight sting, especially in sensitive areas like between the eyebrows. Absolutely all of our Botox patients say the temporary discomfort is well worth the months of being wrinkle free.
Are There Side Effects With Botox?
Choosing a skilled, trained medical professional to administer the Botox treatment will ensure there are no to very minimal side effects from the Botox injections. As with all “shots” or injections, some minor, temporary side effects such as redness or bruising can occasionally occur. Concealer can be used to cover any short-term bruising.
Mild drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow has occurred in about one percent of patients in the US,. But going to a certified, Botox medical professional can reduce the occurrence of this complication or any other side effects.
Is There A Wrong Age To Get Botox?
Adults of any age can safely get Botox to correct facial wrinkles. Addressing fine lines and wrinkles with Botox treatments can prevent them from progressing to deeper wrinkles. Preventing constant muscle contractions in the face can prevent and slow down the formation of lines and wrinkles on the face. Many loyal Botox clients have been receiving treatments regularly for over 20 years without any long term side effects.
Can People Tell I’ve Had Botox?
When a skilled doctor or nurse administers the Botox injections, your facial expressions will still look natural – but simply more youthful! Additionally, no one will be able to tell you had a Botox treatment since the results will gradually develop over two weeks. Your friends will probably notice that you look younger and more well rested, though.
When Should I Get Botox Before a Big Event?
Everyone wants to look their best for that upcoming wedding or their class reunion! Since the full effect of Botox treatments gradually occur over a two week period, it’s best to get the treatment at least two to three weeks before a big event. These few weeks, prior to the event, will allow for any short-term bruising to go away, and the full benefit of Botox to develop. You’ll arrive at that big event looking your best!
