Should I Get Botox?

Were giving away free Botox treatments on Wednesdays through the month of June, and so were focusing on the ins and out of Botox injections on the blog. So how do you know if you should get Botox? Here are a few ways to tell that the treatment is right for you:

  • You have moderate wrinkles, probably around your eyes (crows feet), between the brows (the vertical furrows known as the 11s), and horizontally across the forehead.
  • You have realistic expectations of the procedure. Botox will soften the appearance of wrinkles and will prevent them from deepening, but results will vary based on the individual. The treatment is not permanent, so you will need to repeat the procedure probably once or twice per year.
  • You have at least six weeks before your next major event. If youre getting Botox injections so you can look your best for a wedding, reunion, or other major event, its best to do so at least six weeks before the date. Youll see your results about five days after treatment, but the extra time will give you and your doctor time to deal with any possible issues that might arise, like swelling or bruising.
  • Youre not ready for traditional plastic surgery, but still want to look younger and more rejuvenated. The procedure is an excellent alternative for clients who want to improve their appearance without major downtime. Botox injections can be done over a lunch break, and there is no major down time.

 

Always use a board certified plastic surgeon when getting Botox. There are some medical doctors who practice in other areas that offer Botox treatments, but they are not as experienced and trained in safety as an actual plastic surgeon. Using a board certified surgeon reduces your risk of complications or a botched job.
