Botox is my favorite treatment. I have been receiving injections for over 10 years now and have never had a problem. It still surprises me how botox is one of the most misunderstood beauty procedures. The media portrays Botox as a substance used to get plump lips or doll-like cheeks. This is a common misrepresentation of the chemical as a different product is used for "filling" lips and cheeks. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better in adults. So you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines. It’s a quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
It is injected straight into the muscle to suppress its movement. Botox, therefore, is excellent to relax muscles where it is needed; helps to balance the differences in a face, such as by lowering a raised eyebrow. In addition, Botox also helps treat unintentional blinks, migraines, sweating, unnatural positions of the head and neck and even misaligned eyes.
Always be sure to go to an experienced injector.
