Botox FAQs

Even though Botox is one of the most popular procedures in medical spas across the United States, many people still wonder exactly what happens during the procedure and how the effects will look on their face. If you are one of the many curious people who are interested in learning more about Botox, keep reading! You can contact Prince Frederick’s premier medical spa for your appointment: Rejuvenation Medi-Spa!

Can Botox prevent wrinkles?

It sure can! Botox is made from highly purified toxins that are used to temporarily hide horizontal forehead lines, any frown lines you may have, and crow’s feet. These wrinkles are formed over years of these facial muscles contracting and relaxing each day, so Botox slows these muscles to prevent further wrinkles. Botox is also great when you’re looking to lift the corners of your mouth and lighten any smoker’s lines around the mouth you may have.

Will Botox make me look like I’m frozen?

Well, it can, but only if too much is applied. You won’t feel any numbness, as Botox does not interact with the nerves in your face that cause sensation. As long as your medical spa injects Botox properly, it can lift your brow to give you a sincere and engaging appearance. It’s only when too much is injected in the horizontal lines of your forehead that you will look frozen. That’s why it is essential to seek out a medical spa you can trust!

Does Botox hurt?

It is an injection, so you can expect to feel a pricking sensation as the needle enters the skin. Some patients find that between the eyebrows is the most painful spot. The good news is, this procedure is quick, and some doctors offer topical anesthesia a few minutes before the procedure to ease any pain their patients may feel.

Are there any side effects to getting Botox?

Just as every drug you take over the counter has possible side effects, Botox is no exception. However, the good news is that these side effects tend to be quite mild and last for a short period of time. In one to five percent of cases, there may be mild droopiness of the eyelid or eyebrow. However, these symptoms disappear within two weeks. You may also have some slight bruising, which is entirely normal.

Is Botox expensive?

The price of Botox varies based on which medical spa you choose to perform the procedure, as well as how much you are getting done. The toxins in Botox come to the doctor’s office dehydrated, and they must be reconstituted in order to be used. However, keep in mind that you get what you pay for. Less does not always mean it’s going to be a better treatment. For more information about Rejuvenation Medi-Spa’s prices, feel free to contact us.

What’s the perfect age to start using Botox?

You do not need to get Botox treatments until you have wrinkles or other fine lines that you would like to hide. However, whenever those appear for you, you are welcome to come in and get a Botox treatment. There is no issue with long term use, so you can feel confident getting these treatments for as long as you would like.

How long will my Botox treatment last?

Botox results can vary from person to person, but you can expect your results to last for three and a half to four months. After that, just contact our medical spa again to get your next appointment scheduled!

Will my friends know that I got Botox?

That depends on how well they know you! A good Botox procedure will leave you looking more cheerful and even a little younger. However, too much Botox will leave your face looking stagnant while laughing, and it can possibly lead to a smooth and shiny forehead.
