10 Things to Know About Botox Treatments

Posted on March 2, 2017 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

Considering Botox? These ten facts can help you understand the procedure better:

1. The procedure is quick.

We spend some time discussing your treatment goals and answering your questions. The injections themselves take only about 10 minutes.

2. Discomfort is minimal.

Most people describe the sensation as a small pinch. We use topical numbing agents to minimize any pain you might feel.

3. It won’t disrupt your routine.

In general, there is no reason you should not be able to go right back to your daily routine immediately after a Botox treatment. Some patients even get it done during their lunch hour.

4. Chances are good you’ll experience mild or no side effects.

Three out of four patients say they experience no side effects at all after getting Botox treatments. People who do experience side effects usually have some mild facial discomfort and stiffness.

5. Botox won’t break the bank.

Most people think that cosmetic procedures are expensive. However, Botox costs as little as $9 a unit. You can see great results for as little as $200 per treatment.

6. You’ll still look like you.

Botox doesn’t significantly change your appearance. It just eases frown lines to give you the smoother, younger look you used to have.

7. You’ll be joining a big club.

With 6.6 billion treatments performed in 2014 alone, Botox is the world’s most popular cosmetic treatment.

8. This quick procedure provides lasting results.

People continue to see benefits from Botox treatments for up to four months. Most people find that it’s time for another treatment after around 12-16 weeks.

9. You’ll see results quickly.

Botox results become apparent in as little as 2-4 days. The full effect can sometimes take up to two weeks.

10. You’re going to love it.

Eighty percent of people who get Botox are happy with the results.
