Botox treatments are extremely popular and more and more people are considering it because of the visible results it provides. It is administered as an injectable and is used primarily for the purpose of rejuvenating one’s skin and reducing facial wrinkles. Botox is a purified protein that is extracted from botulinum toxin and can be used as a cosmetic treatment for anyone that is between 18 to 65 years of age.

Low doses are injected under the patient’s skin to relax their facial muscles and to block the signals being sent to those muscles to prevent them from contracting and forming wrinkles. The doses are based on your needs and the right amount will not affect your ability to make normal facial expressions. High doses can negatively impact the function of your facial muscles, which is why Botox treatments should only be done by certified professionals who know how to administer the right doses.

There are a number of benefits associated with this treatment, including the fact that it takes very little time to do and can be performed within minutes. The treatment can be done quickly and a lot of patients even go through with it during their lunch break. An initial consultation will be required to determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for the treatment, and if so, you will be able to proceed with the treatment and the appropriate dosage. You can also discuss the exact location you would like the treatment to target so that the skincare specialist is aware of your concerns and expectations.

Anesthesia is not required for these treatments, although you can request a topical numbing agent to reduce your level of discomfort if need be. Most patients do not feel that the treatments are painful and find it to be tolerable. You can be in and out of your appointment in fifteen minutes and can resume your regular activities immediately after and this is a huge bonus. There is no recovery period or downtime associated with the procedure and medical leave will not be required. Another bonus is that the effects of the treatment will be noticeable within a few days of receiving the injections and you will see an improved appearance and the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. The effects generally last up to six months and you can complete another treatment at this time. A tiny syringe will be used during the treatment to administer the Botox into the targeted muscles and this tool will increase precision for better results.
