Four Considerations Before Getting Facial Botox

Posted on September 28, 2015 by Dr Elenora Fedoneko

Botox injections relax facial muscles, as well as erase wrinkles. If you’ve never received Botox injections, here are four considerations to keep in mind before contacting your skin care professional:1. It Is a Recurring Treatment — Botox is not a permanent solution for wrinkles. On average, it can diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines for four months or so. When you visit your doctor for Botox injections in Los Angeles, you will be able to discuss how often you should come back for a treatment.

2. Deep Wrinkles May Not Disappear — It’s unrealistic to expect every last wrinkle to vanish completely when receiving Botox. Very deep ones are likely to remain. Mainly fine lines will be affected by these injections. Deeper lines, such as those found around the mouth, will best benefit from a dermal filler.

3. It Takes Time to See Results  You may notice that your face looks better in about three days, but it often takes about a week for any real change to occur.

4. Regulations Are Different from State to State — Depending on where you live, the laws may vary. In California, only licensed medical professionals may inject Botox. This includes physicians, registered nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.
