BotoxIt has become a known fact that people want to look younger than they really are for as long as they can. Luckily, there are many skin care products and treatments that can help take away the harsh effects of time on your skin. Cleared by the FDA in 2002, Botox is a safe and effective treatment that will help you achieve a younger appearance, by reducing wrinkles and fine lines. Keep reading to find out why Botox is so popular.

Why Is Botox So Great?

When Botox (botulinum toxin) is injected, it averts muscles from tightening by temporarily immobilizing them, which makes wrinkles less obvious. This safe, quick and painless procedure has been FDA approved for years and continues to be the single most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States among both men and women.

During The Treatment

During the Botox procedure, you will experience a painless and quick treatment. However, the routinely steps that your particular doctor goes through may be different than any other doctor’s office. Typically, no anesthesia is necessary, but your doctor may choose to use numbing or anesthetic cream on the area you are being treated on. Minimal discomfort should be expected, but it is only a brief feeling.

What To Do Before The Treatment

Set up a free consultation with one of our skincare experts to determine whether Botox is right for you. Make sure you’re ready to answer your doctor’s questions in full; such as, are you taking any muscle relaxants, allergy medications or sleeping aids that have ingredients that could interfere with the healing process. Once your treatment has been scheduled, you can prepare by halting all over the counter medications that thin your blood (i.e. Aspirin and Alleve) as they can make you bruise more easily during the recovery period. We also recommend for you to eliminate fish oils and foods high in Vitamin E, as they are also detrimental to the recovery process. Include anti-inflammatory foods to your diet before and after your Botox procedure to help reduce bruising.
