Have you been considering Botox? If so, you’re not alone. The use of Botox is on the rise, as more and more people are recognizing it’s a safe and simple procedure for obtaining a youthful appearance. Botox is easy to get too—you can have it done right here at Macabi Dental Associates.
Why Do People Choose to Get Botox?
As we age, wrinkles begin to form. Typically, they start around the eyes when crow’s feet begin to set in. But, of course, there are also those dreaded forehead wrinkles and the infamous “11” which develops between the eyebrows. People often choose Botox to prevent wrinkles from forming or deepening in those areas.
However, Botox isn’t just used to treat wrinkles. It’s also shown to be effective at eliminating migraines, minimizing excessive sweat, and preventing muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
What Can I Expect after Getting Botox?
You can resume normal activities immediately after getting Botox. However, you’ll want to avoid rubbing the treated area—doing so can cause the Botox to migrate to other parts of your face.
Once you’ve received Botox, you may not notice a difference right away. The injectable typically takes 3-7 days to see results. Occasionally, it can take as long as two weeks. Results last for about three months, but in some cases, can last for up to six months. During that time, the muscles injected with Botox will not contract, preventing wrinkles from forming or deepening.
