Let’s Discuss your Botox Questions
- Posted on: Dec 15 2017
With the promise of diminished wrinkles and facial creases, it’s no wonder Botox remains one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around. If you want to get rid of those pesky lines and wrinkles around your eyes, chin, forehead, or lips, Botox is an excellent option for you. Let’s address your questions about Botox.
How does Botox work?
Using a fine needle, Botox is injected into the muscle to block the signals sent by nerves that tell it to contract. The result is a more refined, full, and smooth appearance. Botox is commonly used to reduce forehead lines, frown lines, crow’s feet, and lines around the chin, mouth, and neck. A Botox procedure is so quick it can be done during a break from your work day!
What are the potential side effects of Botox?
Bruising is quite common but varies from patient to patient. In rare situations, some patients experience a headache for 24-48 hours while others develop a temporary drooping eyelid.
How long does a Botox treatment last?
If you are new to Botox, your injection will last about 3-4 months. As you get more injections overtime, your muscles will become accustomed to being relaxed and remain in that state for longer periods of time.
How do I prepare for Botox?
As with any cosmetic treatment, there are certain risks involved. The following precautions can help reduce those risks:
- Do not take aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before your treatment.
- Avoid alcohol one week before your treatment.
Am I a good candidate for Botox?
Botox is an excellent treatment for nearly everyone. But if you are breastfeeding, pregnant, or have a neurological disease you should not get Botox injections.
Does my insurance cover Botox?
Health insurance companies do not cover cosmetic procedures. This includes Botox. Be sure to call your insurance company to ask about your personalized coverage and what it includes.
