Things to Know Before Getting Botox
Everyone ages. It is inevitable. The good news is, however, you don’t have to look like you have been aging! If you are reading this post, it’s likely that you have already heard all about Botox and perhaps spoken to someone who received Botox treatment and fell in love with the results. It’s no wonder why millions of people go in each and every year to soften their wrinkles and feel like their youthful selves again. While this is a simple procedure with very little risk, we know there still seems to be quite a bit of mystery surrounding Botox treatments. Read on to learn the top things you should know before you come in for your first treatment at Become MedSpa!
Choose the right provider.
Make sure to choose someplace reputable and with trained professionals who understand Botox specifically. Some people have decided to just offer Botox without having a full understanding of it, which can often lead to the needle being either too shallow or too deep. It’s also common for the injection site to be incorrect, which can lead to negative side effects and poor results. In order to choose the right place, read the reviews and contact them ahead of time. At Become MedSpa, each of our professionals is trained to give you the best possible Botox results, so contact us to learn more.
Do your research ahead of time.
Learn what the possible side effects are before deciding on this procedure, and always consult a doctor first. Researching the professional who will be administering the Botox is also a wise decision so you can feel both confident and prepared.
Know how you are being charged.
There is nothing wrong with calling ahead to find out the price of your procedure. The average Botox treatment is around $550. We recommend not going anywhere simply because they have the lowest prices. The old adage, “You get what you pay for” is just as applicable when it comes to Botox as it is anyplace else in life.
Know what to expect during the procedure.
What does it feel like to get Botox? Obviously it feels different for everyone, but as long as you are going to a reputable place, the procedure should be fast and easy. Your practitioner will make a few injections to your treatment areas, and then you will be on your way in no time! Some people report feeling nothing more than a prick.
Know what to expect after the procedure.
Most people report feeling very little pain during the procedure. However, you may feel some slight swelling, redness, or bruising at the site of the procedure. This reaction is usually similar to how you feel after getting a shot from your doctor. Some people experience this for a few hours while others feel totally normal by time they leave the spa. The response depends on your body!
Make sure you know what results to expect.
When you receive a successful and well done procedure, the Botox should make you look more youthful! However, the results do take a few days to really show. Many patients see results in about three to four days, and these results continue to improve for about two weeks when they reach their peak. The effects will wear off after about four months, so it’s important to schedule your next appointment to keep the look you would like.
Understand what goes into getting rid of Botox.
Should you have some sort of complication or reaction to Botox, you need to wait it out. We guarantee that it will wear out, but this process takes time and patience.
Botox can change your wrinkles.
Yes, Botox is known for battling wrinkles, but it can also cause some muscles to relax in ways they had not before. Your Botox administrator will discuss possible results with you, but feel free to do your research ahead of time to have a clearer understanding of what may happen.
Botox can be preventative.
Many people have youthful skin, but Botox may still be a good option. Starting Botox treatments before wrinkles appear can limit their development and lower the number of treatments needed in the future. Don’t hesitate to consider Botox even if you have no wrinkles.
It can treat other conditions.
Botox isn’t just for wrinkles. It can help treat muscle spasms, heavy sweating, and even migraines. Scientists who study Botox and its effects are finding new uses still, so consider the various benefits!
Botox can train your muscles.
If you are worried about keeping up with treatment in just a few months time, the good news is repeated treatment pays off. Consistent and successful Botox injections can actually help your muscles begin to relax. It is the overuse of our facial muscles that causes wrinkles to form, so this relaxes state can make your Botox results last longer.
