Frustrated? Chances are, everyone else can tell. The tone of your voice helps people know when they’re on your last nerve, but so do those little wrinkles in your forehead. If you’ve suddenly found those little wrinkles aren’t going away, you’re not alone. We’re all getting older, but we want to age just a little more gracefully. That’s not too much to ask, right?
Keep reading to learn the basics about Botox and how these little injections can help minimize those pesky wrinkles!
Botox helps treat wrinkles by gently freezing selected muscles that cause them in the first place. Technically, Botox blocks the signals from nerves to prevent muscles that cause wrinkles from contracting. If the muscle doesn’t contract, the wrinkle doesn’t form!
Picking Your Provider
As with anything concerning your beautiful face, we recommend that you take your time and do your research before jumping in to Botox. Just because someone is offering a special sale, it doesn’t mean they’re the right provider for you.
When calling providers, know the basics of what you’re looking for. If you’re new to Botox and just want to test the waters, don’t let anyone talk you into doing more. Botox takes months to fade away, so having a good idea of what you want will keep you happier in the long run.
Ask potential providers for progress photos of their patients. Botox before and after photos can help you visualize how your results will look, and can prevent you from going to a provider who might not give you the best results. Get a feeling for how important Botox is to their practice. The more a provider gives Botox injections, the more familiar they will be with getting great results for you!
Immediately after your Botox, you might experience slight swelling or bruising, which is completely normal. Understand that it will take a few days to see results, and that it may take up to five days to see the best results from your Botox.
