BOTOX MAKES YOU LOOK “FROZEN”
Botox is a neurotoxin which means Botox temporarily relaxes your muscles by attaching itself to nerve endings and preventing muscle contractions. It is important to have Botox administered by a specialist because over-Botoxing can relax the face too much and create unwanted results.
BOTOX IS NOT PAINFUL
Although, it is important to consider a person’s threshold for pain the majority of patients only feel mild discomfort. People often refrain from the procedure because of an assumption that Botox is painful. If that is the only factor holding someone back then they can rest assured it will only feel like a pinch.
BOTOX BUILDS UP IN THE BODY OVERTIME
Botox blocks the receptors between the nerve endings and the muscles. This blockade is what prevents muscle movement. In about 3-6 months depending on the client’s metabolism, activity level, and depending on the area being treated the body will create new receptors and the muscles will regain their usual ability to move.
BOTOX IS NOT ONLY FOR BEAUTY
While Botox is mostly associated with smoothing out wrinkles there are actually many other uses for the injection. Botox can lift eyebrows, soften the jawline and fill in chin dimples. In addition, most people associate Botox with beauty, as a result, they overlook the medical benefits of Botox. Since Botox blocks nerve signals and relaxes muscles it can be used to stop excessive sweating, lessen TMJ symptoms, stop eye twitching, and aid in bladder dysfunction.
BOTOX IS IMMEDIATE
Oftentimes clients panic when they don’t see immediate results the morning after they receive a Botox treatment. While the results of Botox are gratifying they are not instantaneous because the body needs time to react to the Botox that was injected. A difference can be seen in about 3-5 days, while full results will only appear in 7-14 days.
BOTOX MINIMIZES NEW WRINKLES
It is best not to wait until wrinkles form to start Botox treatments. Waiting for deeper wrinkles and fine lines may actually make it more difficult to smooth the skin out. Preventative Botox is much more practical as it will keep new wrinkles from forming by relaxing wrinkle-causing muscle activity.
