Looking younger is the end result of Botox treatments. This is evident when the wrinkles are reduced around common problem areas such as the forehead and eyes. Thrive Skin + Wellness recommends Botox as a viable solution to those patients who desire to rejuvenate their appearance.

The unpainful truth about Botox

A Botox treatment consists of using a very fine needle to inject a small amount of specific purified protein into small muscles of the face. Botox is more commonly used on the horizontal lines on the forehead and in the glabellar muscle to erase frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. The effects of Botox can be seen almost immediately; usually within 48 hour and the results can last up to four months.

During a Botox injection, most people have reported only a mild discomfort from the tiny needle; like a slight pinch. The number of injections required varies from patient to patient. If multiple injections are required, multiple pinches are felt, but should only last for a few seconds. The unpainful truth is that most people tolerate Botox injections well.

Best time to get a Botox treatment

Botox can be used as a preventative treatment. Why wait until fine lines aren’t so fine anymore before starting the treatment? The longer you wait to begin the treatment, the more pronounced the lines become on your skin.

Many people have considered having a Botox treatment, but procrastinate due to misconceptions. One such falsehood is that Botox will freeze your face. That’s only true if you had the treatment performed by the wrong professional. Properly injected, it should be impossible for a non-medical person to tell you had a Botox treatment. So, it’s important to have a well-trained, experienced medical professional perform your Botox injections.
