What You Need to Know About BOTOX

If someone says they’re going to get a cosmetic treatment done, BOTOX® injections may not be the first treatment to cross your mind. It seems like having a few injections wouldn’t count as a full procedure, but there’s a lot about this treatment that people don’t know. Curious to learn more? Below is everything you need to know about BOTOX® to make an informed decision if you’re interested in having a treatment done on yourself.
What BOTOX® Is
BOTOX® is a common injection that’s been around for decades. It’s purified protein solution, which is used to treat certain muscular disorders. It’s more commonly known for being used to relax facial muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Pros and Cons to Consider
Like everything, BOTOX® has pros and cons that everyone should think about before going in for treatment. Many people enjoy that it’s a temporary fix to wherever it’s injected, so if you don’t like the results, they aren’t permanent. It’s also a quick procedure and has little to no health risks.
As for the cons list, if you’re using antibiotics, you won’t be able to receive any BOTOX® treatment. It also can’t be done at home, so you’ll always have to go to a professional to get it done. Professionals, like those at Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery, will always guarantee the best work and amazing results. It also may not be covered by insurance.
What Treatment Is Like
When you go in for BOTOX® treatment, you’ll sit down and get a series of mini injections. They’ll be enough to feel a tiny pinch, but there won’t be any pain. Afterwards, you may be advised to not wear makeup and lie down for a bit, but you can drive yourself home and continue with whatever you have planned for the day.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Always talk to your doctor if you’re concerned that a medical treatment isn’t right for you. They’ll be able to advise what’s best for your care, but BOTOX® may be the best way to receive help if you have hyperhidrosis or other issues like migraines.
