The Misconceptions and Reality of Botox!

If you were to ask most people about the term “Botox” or “Botox injection”, most would probably associate it with some kind of expensive facial treatment that makes the older celebrities and movie stars look like balloons lol. Well, that may have been true at some point in the past, but the modern reality of the Botox injection and the entire beauty industry has changed drastically. It’s not just about making celebrities camera worthy and photogenic anymore. It’s about so much more!  

The Misconceptions and Reality of Botox!

Most beauty treatments which would have been considered too expensive or too difficult to perform a few years ago are now accessible by many individuals all over the world. And Botox is one of the most popular treatments among these. It’s become highly widespread and is considered to be one of the safest procedures to treating and enhancing your skin.

How and where can Botox work?

Botox is a special compound which causes a special effect in your body when injected. There are muscles in your face and many other places on the body, which are under constant pressure and strain as they’re working subconsciously, and so you don’t really notice all of it. Imagine yourself sipping coffee with your friend at your local coffee shop, and in that moment your facial muscle are constantly moving. Who would have thought? lol

Botox injections prevent this from happening. By calming down the muscles in the face, they keep them from becoming overly-stretched and strained, which in turn reduces the tension in the muscles, letting them relax. With this relaxation you will also notice wrinkles and other skin damage fading and smoothing out.

There have also been other known methods of using the Botox injection, such as treating joint pains and even migraines. And while research about them is still inconclusive, only time will tell what other amazing qualities the Botox compound holds secret.

More About the Procedure

Botox was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) over a decade ago. So, right off the bat, please forget any worries you had about Botox’s safety. In fact, the most common side-effects are a little swelling and a little itchiness, quite minor and very easy to handle, even with household materials.

The procedure itself involves a series of injections performed by a specialist. Depending on what part of the face you choose to smooth out, the specialist will apply one to several injections in the area. During the procedure, you will feel absolutely nothing, not even a sting. So, if you’re afraid of even the smallest of pains, don’t be, as the procedure is pretty much painless.

Start Looking Around

So now, all you really need to do is look around. Try to find something in your area. While the Botox injection in New York City may be available in a wide variety of clinics, only a few of them may offer the services you require. 

But keep in mind, you have all the resources for research available at your fingertips. Just look through some of their websites, read their customer reviews and take a look at their before and after photos to see for yourself what’s right for you.

What to Look Out For

While Botox is one of the safest treatments you can find, keep in mind, there are still something you need to work out before going into it. First and foremost, consult your doctor. Chances are, there won’t be anything medically you should look out for before going in for a procedure, however, it’s always better to be on the safe side.

Another thing to look out for is the downtime. While it only lasts no more than one week, there are still some things you are prohibited from doing such as drinking alcohol. It may seem hard lol, but do try to avoid drinking for the first day or two just to be on the safe side.

You should also avoid any extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, during the downtime. And other than these two, just make sure not to scratch the area, no matter how much it itches. 

If you’ve ever considered getting the Botox injection at any point in your life and haven’t yet, why not now? It’s not only easy to find, but thanks to the advancements in technology, it’s now one of the most and well performing treatments in the industry. Not only that, but you’ll be able to fit it into your budget quite easily and the minor side-effects and low maintenance downtime means you’ll be spending less time and money on taking care of yourself post-treatment and more time doing what you love.
