Botox is a non-surgical, beauty treatment for fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It may also be used for non-cosmetic problems like migraines, excessive underarm perspiration, muscle spasms, and depression.
There is no recovery time required following Botox treatment. The treatment takes only a few minutes and causes very little pain. You can resume your daily activities immediately after a Botox treatment.
Botox injections are often applied to the frown lines (between eyebrows), to crow’s-feet (the lines that fan out from the corners of the eyes) and on the forehead furrows (the horizontal lines that form when you raise your eyebrows).
Your facial skin will not sag if you stop using Botox. If the Botox begins to wear off, your facial muscles will simply return to the way they were before the treatment.
The discomfort felt with Botox injections is insignificant, since a very small needle is used for the injection the pain is minimal. The option to numb the area with either an aesthetic cream or a cold pack so that you do not feel any pain, is also available.
Botox treatments take about 10 minutes. The physician uses a very fine needle to inject Botox directly into the targeted facial muscles. There is no down time after treatment. You should be able to return to your normal activities immediately.
Pain is usually minimal with Botox treatment. Some patients feel discomfort from the injection of botox that is administered into the painful muscles.
Yes. Botox can be used with a facelift. However, it is not meant to be a replacement for the desired results of a facelift.
