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.

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.

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.

Natural and Botox are words rarely appearing in the same sentence. No one wants to look like they’ve had work done. You want a doctor/artist who sees your face as a canvas, and injects the drug accordingly to improve – not distort – the artwork. Your friends should not assume that your rested, happy look is a result of Botox injections.

The Food and Drug Administration recently warned the public and medical professionals about counterfeit Botox. An unlicensed company sold the product, which may have found its way to medical clinics across the country, the FDA noted.
The counterfeit Botox poses dangers and should not be administered, the FDA warned. The agency noted that it could not confirm that manufacturing and handling of the product followed national safety standards.
Similarities to legitimate Botox
FDA-approved injectable Botox, which is manufactured by Allergan, displays “OnabotulinumtoxinA” as its active ingredient on the vial. On counterfeit versions, the vial instead may show “Botulinum Toxin Type A” as the active ingredient. In addition, the lot number may be missing on the counterfeit vial, and the outer carton may not list entries for lot number, manufacturer and expiration. Counterfeit Botox bottles also do not include the Allergan hologram.
Consumers who did not achieve the desired effects from Botox injections should not assume that the product they received was counterfeit. Various factors can influence the effectiveness of Botox treatment, including the level of experience of the individual providing the treatment.
Patients should also avoid ordering Botox on the Internet. Consumers who order Botox on the Internet, cannot be sure that they are receiving a legitimate and thoroughly tested product.
Seek Botox treatments from a licensed professional
In order to avoid counterfeit Botox patients should receive Botox injections only from licensed professionals such as board-certified physicians.
