If you’re dreaming of smoother, softer skin, you may want to consider Botox injections. The most popular non-surgical procedure globally, it eliminates forehead frown lines,crow’s feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck through the injection of a purified protein filler to give your skin a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Botox injections are suitable for adult women and men who have wrinkles and blemishes around their eyes, forehead and neck areas. To have this procedure, you must be in good health, not pregnant or nursing, and without a history of neuromuscular disorders.
In preparing for Botox injections, you may be asked to:
- Get lab testing or a medical evaluation.
- Discuss any medical conditions or treatments.
- Examine or measure you face.
This procedure takes less than one hour and no hospital stay is generally required. The Botulin toxin (Botox) is injected using a small needle to minimize any discomfort or stinging. It blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, while giving the skin a smoother appearance for several months.
Since the procedure is non-surgical, no recovery time is needed. You’ll be able to return to work or other activities immediately following the procedure.
Botox injections are very safe and side effects are extremely rare, though they may include headaches, nausea and bruising or numbness around the injection site.
Most people love the younger, unwrinkled skin, which will become fully apparent within one week of the procedure. The rejuvenating effects of Botox injections typically last around three to six months, so the procedure should be repeated periodically to retain your youthful, smooth skin.
