The Botox Basics

What Is Botox?

More and more people are turning to Botox earlier in life. Botox used to be used in your late 40s and on. Today, people are doing preventative botox and there isn’t a negative stigma around botox. Botox is one of the most common cosmetic procedures done in the United States.

It’s important to have any botox injection done by a healthcare professional who is licensed and certified to do them. Both men and women can get a botox treatment.

How does Botox work?

Botox is made from a neuron from a bacteria called lostridium botulinum. The bacteria blocks the nerve in your face (or wherever you get botox) that works with the muscles. It’s a quick and almost painless procedure that’s done in minutes. People say that botox injections have a similar feeling to being snapped by a rubber band.

How fast can you see results?

Sometimes you can see the results of your botox immediately. Most people see their results in 5-7 days. You will start to see less lines and wrinkles. Botox doesn’t last forever, it’s recommended that you get treatment again in about 3-4 months. Like any medical treatment, the results and frequency is different for every patient.

How long does a Botox treatment take?

Botox is a very quick procedure, it takes about 10 minutes. One of the biggest side effects is redness at the injection site, which doesn’t last long.
