Fine lines and wrinkles are inevitable and can be a real hassle, but Santé MD is here to help!
While certain topical creams can be used to help prevent those pesky wrinkles, the results may take months to appear and still may not give you the look that you want. Botox is a great alternative to this and will give you the results you want in a matter of days. To help you decide if Botox is right for you, we have answered some frequently asked questions.
What is Botox used for?
Botox is commonly used to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet on the face by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Once injected, the muscles in the treated area will relax, resulting in a significant reduction of the appearance of wrinkles, even when smiling or frowning. Botox can also be used to soften the jawline and chin, smooth the neck, give you a more sculpted look, and treat migraines and excessive sweating.
Is Botox Safe?
Botox is an FDA-approved, non-surgical cosmetic treatment used by millions worldwide each year, making it the most popular treatment of its kind. It is also the most studied and researched injectable treatment and has been approved for use in 96 countries, so there is no need to worry.
Does Botox hurt?
The pain one may feel from a Botox injectable equates to no more than a pinch. Your aesthetician will use ice or a topical numbing cream to ensure that little to no pain is felt during the procedure. The treatment is quick and easy, typically lasting no more than 10 minutes, so you will be able to get in, out, and go about your day as normal after completion.
When will I see the results of Botox?
Botox gives you real, noticeable results 24 to 48 hours after the injectable is administered – full results become more evident after two weeks. The effects of Botox will last for 3 to 4 months, so it is important to come in for maintenance injectables at the end of each 3 to 4 month period to preserve a smooth, rejuvenated look.
