While Botox does not involve an invasive surgical procedure, it’s nevertheless important that you take your time and do your research prior to receiving injections. Not only do you want to make sure that the treatment is right for you, you also want to ensure that you’ve chosen the right provider for the job.
Before committing to Botox treatments, consider the provider, whether or not he or she is board certified, what his or her specialty is, and how long he or she has been using Botox in practice. Also consider whether or not it’s right for you and if it is the right choice to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
What is Botox?
Botox treatments can help reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles on the face. These are wrinkles that are associated with facial expression, such as frown lines and crow’s feet. These creases occur as we frown, squint and make other repeated facial movements. Botox is injected into the muscle responsible, relaxing the muscle and smoothing out the wrinkle. Botox can make your face look smoother, more youthful and more approachable.
Botox is a simple, quick procedure that involves no downtime. Performed in the office setting, treatment takes under an hour and involves little pain. Results last three to four months on average and the treatment can be repeated as needed to maintain the desired look.
Your Botox Provider
You may see Botox advertised at a variety of unusual places, such as hair salons, nail spas and even on billboards. While low prices can be enticing, your health and the quality of your treatment are paramount. A qualified plastic surgeon or dermatologist is the best choice for Botox injections. When selecting a plastic surgeon, be sure to consider whether or not they are board certified, how long they have been in practice, what their specialty is, and what past patients are saying about them. It’s also important to meet with the surgeon beforehand for a consultation to ensure that you are comfortable with the doctor and that he or she understands your goals and desires before moving forward.
