BOTOX® is a procedure that involves injecting a purified protein solution into the facial muscles to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. This is one of the safest and most effective cosmetic procedures in America and beyond. While it might be common to many, here are some interesting facts you might not have known about this treatment.
It takes time for the results to be seen
While patients like to see results immediately after any cosmetic procedure, it might take up to seven days for the full BOTOX® effects to be seen. However, each patient reacts differently to this kind of treatment. Some people notice changes earlier than others do, but you can expect to see initial results within days.
The treatment is not permanent
Once you have a BOTOX® treatment, the results can last between four to six months. Continuous treatments can improve your skin condition with time. The best thing about this treatment is that it does not take much time out of your schedule. Each treatment only takes minutes, which is convenient and time-saving.
It can be used to prevent wrinkles
Many of our patients have used this treatment to prevent the formation of dynamic wrinkles in the first place. A lot of these patients are younger than you might think. For example, many people in their late twenties are starting to get BOTOX® treatment in order to stave off common signs of aging.
BOTOX® is the most sought-after cosmetic procedure in the US
Since its approval by the FDA in 2002, BOTOX® has continued to gain popularity in the US. Millions of these procedures are performed each year, which shows how safe and effective the treatment is.
