Being anti-Botox can be really easy when you are young, but once you start getting up there, you will start seeing why people are actively seeking to get Botox. I’m a staunch believer that you should do whatever you want to do with your body as long as it makes you happy and you know what that entails in the future. Contrary to popular belief, Botox is safe and has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration since 2002. Getting Botox can help with your self-image, and if that is the case, then go ahead and get that Botox shot. But for people out there who are still undecided about Botox, let’s learn some of the things you should know before getting Botox!
It is not excruciating pain, but if you hate prickles and pain, then this might not be for you. But then again, it takes time and pain to look beautiful. When you get to your Botox appointment, you will be informed that the procedure might cause some discomfort and that there will be needles involved. The injection is a bit akin to a mosquito bite and is not that painful, but if you are afraid of needles, then it is a big no-no. After the Botox has been injected, an ice pack will be placed on your face to help alleviate the pain and numbness, and some people say that the needle pain could last for up to a couple of hours.
Botox is temporary
Botox may seem like a magical thing that has miraculous effects, and yes, it does make you look younger. However, these effects aren’t definite. Some people believe that getting Botox is a one-time thing, and once you get it, it is set for life, but this is completely untrue because Botox is temporary and even more temporary than you might think. The average duration for a Botox shot between the lines between your brows, also known as the glabella, lateral crows’ feet, and forehead, usually lasts about 3 to 4 months. There are also other factors that may affect this and make the Botox fade faster. It is important for you to know that if you are a very expressive person and exercise a lot, then the Botox might last closer to three months.
It doesn’t erase wrinkles.
Botox is a treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, but Botox is for preventative use and not restorative; that is, they will help in the prevention of wrinkles and fine lines but can’t turn back time. The active ingredients in the Botox will freeze the facial muscle, which will keep you from contracting said muscles which then will prevent the formation of future wrinkles, and this will also prevent fine lines from deepening. Therefore this is why it is better to get Botox in your twenties rather than your forties or fifties because it will work better to prevent the formation of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox isn’t just for celebrities.
This is no longer the early 2000s, and getting Botox is not only for the rich but is fairly affordable nowadays. For a while, Botox has been glorified as something that only A-list celebrities could get, but with the evolution of technology and medicine, Botox is now affordable to the masses. One unit of Botox can cost around 10 to 15 dollars, and the average treatment for your forehead needs anywhere from 8 to 20 units and can cost you anywhere from $200 to $300. More people than you might be aware of might have gotten Botox injected into their forehead, and it is a completely natural thing to do to fight against the aging process and time. Botox is certainly not cheap, but it is more affordable now than it has been 15 to 20 years ago but is far cheaper than real plastic surgery or injectable like fillers.
