The Truth About Botox
When deciding to undergo a cosmetic procedure such as Botox or other dermal fillers, the more information one has on the treatment, the better. At our Warren, MI-area Med Spa, we strive to provide all of our patients with the most information possible regarding Botox and any other procedures during their consultation.
In the meantime, in this article, we dispel some common misconceptions and myths about Botox, and uncover why it is the most popular injectable facial filler in the world.
Botox Will NOT Give You a Frozen Expression
When injected by an experienced doctor or nurse, in the correct dose, into the correct treatment area, Botox will never cause a patient’s face to appear “frozen.” And patients should never experience any numbness or loss of sensation. The expert team at our Warren, MI area med spa are trained to precisely administer the correct dose of Botox – based on the size of the patient’s muscles, location of treatment and the degree and depth of the wrinkles and lines.
However, it is important to only get facial fillers like Botox in a facility staffed by licensed medical professionals, such as our Warren, MI area med spa. Getting Botox at a salon or other locations – where the staff lacks medical procedure experience – can indeed produce unsightly, frozen results.
Botox Injections are NOT Painful
At our Warren, MI area med spa, topical anesthetic is applied to every patient at least ten minutes prior to receiving a Botox injection. Patients also have the option of anesthetizing their treatment area with ice.
While Botox is not an inherently painful procedure, patients may experience a slight stinging sensation upon the initial injection. This is particularly true when administering Botox to sensitive areas, such as the area between the eyebrows. Nonetheless, our Botox patients universally agree that the incredible results of the procedure are completely worth any temporary discomfort.
When Injected Properly there are NOT Side Effects With Botox
In the care of the licensed professionals at our Warren, MI med spa, Botox patients can rest assured they are at the lowest possible risk of any possible complications from their procedure. Since Botox is still an injection, patients are subject to some negligible, temporary side effects such as minor bruising or redness, but any such side effects can easily be covered with concealer.
Botox CAN Prevent Future Wrinkles from Forming
Botox is a safe and effective way for adults of any age to treat facial wrinkles. And when treated in time, Botox is also capable of preventing fine lines from developing into deeper wrinkles. By preventing constant contractions of the facial muscles with Botox, the development of fine lines and wrinkles can be slowed down or stopped entirely. Botox is so effective, that many of our patients at our Warren, MI area med spa have been getting Botox injections for over 20 years without ever experiencing any long-term side effects.
No One Will Be Able to Tell You Got Botox
The expert team at our Warren, MI area med spa have been trained to administer Botox to our patients in a way that maintains the natural appearance of their facial expressions. And since Botox results gradually become visible over the course of two weeks, no one will be able to tell you’ve had “work done,” you will simply appear more youthful and refreshed!
Botox Results Improve Over Time
Botox patients often come to our Warren, MI area med spa hoping to look younger for events like class reunions or an upcoming wedding. Since final results from Botox generally don’t become visible until about two weeks after the procedure, we advise scheduling appointments accordingly. That way, in the weeks leading up to the big event, bruising will have time to diminish, and full results from the Botox procedure will have adequate time to develop – so you can stun everybody with your youthful appearance at your big event!
