Botox is an incredibly popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment with a RealSelf Worth It Rating in the high 90s. It’s no wonder that millions of people in the United States get Botox every year to fight wrinkles as it is affordable and effective.
Although it’s a well-known and fairly simple treatment, there are some things about Botox you may not know. We relied on the expertise of RealSelf doctors and members to compile this list of 14 things to know before your first Botox treatment.
1. Everyone offers Botox. How do you pick a provider?
When getting Botox, your first inclination might be to contact a plastic surgeon or dermatologist, but you may also see other providers, or even spas, offering the treatment. While Botox injections are relatively simple, the treatment still needs to be done by a trained and experienced medical professional. If the injections are too deep, too low, or in the wrong spot, you could have negative side effects, like a droopy eyelid.
2. Pain, swelling, and bruising.
Many patients report minimal pain. There may be some initial mild redness, swelling, or bruising, which should resolve quickly. The reaction is similar to getting a shot at your general practitioner.
“I had swelling around the injection sites for five minutes, it was totally gone by the time I left the clinic,” member Krystalgem said in a RealSelf Review.
3. What results should you expect?
When done correctly, in injection amount and technique, Botox should give you a more youthful look. Typically, the results take a few days before they start to show.
4. What are the possible side effects?
If injected correctly, most patients don’t have issues beyond minor redness, bruising, or swelling. If injected incorrectly, the Botox can spread too far and impact muscles it wasn’t intended to. That can cause effects like a droopy eyelid.
5. How long does it last?
How long Botox lasts will be different for everyone. It also depends on the areas treated, and how many units were injected. On average, most Botox treatments last between two and six months.
6. Botox may change more than a few wrinkles.
Botox is known for battling wrinkles, but it could also have some impacts you didn’t expect or desire.
7. Is it preventative?
Although you may not have wrinkles yet, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider Botox. Starting treatment before wrinkles start forming can limit their development and reduce the treatments needed later.
8. Does Botox train your muscles?
With continued and consistent Botox treatments, you could see an increase in longevity. That’s because repeated use can cause a gradual relaxing of the muscles. The less active they are, the less they work to create wrinkles.
