5 things you should know before getting Botox

If you are searching for a safe and effective method of creating a younger, more revitalized appearance, Botox injections might be the perfect solution for you. Botox is one of the most popular ways to boost your confidence and rejuvenate your facial complexion.

Some of the things Botox can be successfully used for include:

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, particularly on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the eyebrows.
  • Lifting of the eyebrows, creating a more alert and youthful appearance.
  • Improvement of the appearance of vertical “lipstick” lines around the mouth.
  • Reducing of the appearance of “gummy” smile by reducing the amount of gum tissue that shows when smiling.

At Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville, we want you to make an informed decision. It is important you know what Botox is, how it works, and what to expect.

Here are 5 things you should know before getting Botox:

1. Botox is a type of neurotoxin

Botox is a type of neurotoxin that is made from a bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. When injected into the face, it temporarily paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles and fine lines.

2. Botox is FDA approved for cosmetic use

Botox has been FDA approved for the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles and fine lines on the face since 2002. It is considered a safe treatment when performed by a qualified and licensed healthcare professional such as a doctor or nurse practitioner, who is trained and experienced in administering the treatment.

3. Botox is not a permanent solution

Botox is a temporary solution for wrinkles and fine lines. The effects typically last 3-6 months before the muscles start to regain their movement and wrinkles may re-appear.

4. Botox is not just for wrinkles on the forehead

Botox can be used to treat wrinkles and fine lines on various areas of the face, including the forehead, between the brows, around the eyes, and on the lips.

5. It’s important to have realistic expectations

Botox can help reduce wrinkles and fine lines, but it’s important to have realistic expectations about the results. It’s important to understand that Botox can only improve wrinkles and fine lines, it cannot eliminate them entirely.

In conclusion, Botox has been used safely for many years, and are an extremely popular choice for both women and men who desire fewer wrinkles and want to retain a more youthful, and softer look even into their later years.
