Botox has been used to fight wrinkles for years, and it still reigns as one of the top non-surgical cosmetic procedures. We all know it can reverse wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause you to scrunch up your skin and encourage wrinkles, but what are the other benefits that have helped to make Botox an international phenomenon?
No Need for Anesthesia
Botox is not a high maintenance treatment by any means. The needles used are small and thin, and are only injected into the areas of your face where you want to relax muscles. For most people this means around the eyes, lips, and forehead. The injections are minor enough that you can handle it without anesthesia.
It’s a Quick and Easy Procedure
Only have your lunch break or an hour while your kids are at soccer practice? Botox can be done that quickly, because it’s a simple procedure! Depending on the number of wrinkles and areas of the face you are targeting, your Botox treatment can be done in as little as 15 or 20 minutes.
Forget About Downtime
Since Botox is non-surgical and minimally-invasive, there’s no real downtime to contend with. There’s no need for your mother-in-law to stay over for two days to cook your dinners and wash your clothes, and you don’t need to take any time off work. Any slight bruising that occurs around the injection site doesn’t last long, and you can apply makeup right away!
Smoother Skin In Days
Botox doesn’t show its results within seconds or minutes, but after three to five days you will notice that wrinkles you previously thought were permanent have become far less noticeable. Eventually those wrinkles disappear, leaving you with smooth and beautiful skin. The results last about three or four months, so most people plan to receive three Botox injections per year. Each time you receive Botox, a bit less botulinum toxin is needed to have the desired impact on your face.
If you’ve never tried Botox, now is your time! You’ll be stunned by how much younger you can look after one simple injection treatment.
