Few cosmetic treatments have taken so much bad press as Botox injections. Despite how practical and safe the treatment is under a professional, many news outlets still highlight the negative impacts that could happen with untrained use. Luckily, PMN Health and Wellness utilizes experienced practitioners to administer Botox to our clients. We believe in putting your safety first. Beyond that, however, we also think that you should be informed about the positives and the negatives of Botox treatments. In this article, we’ll look at elements of the treatment you should be aware of.
Is Botox Really Harmless?
We always get asked if Botox is truly a harmless treatment. The honest answer to that is yes, when it’s administered by a professional. Botox is a popular cosmetic treatment that injects a neurotoxin into your muscles to make them contract and tighten up your face. The contractions smooth out the fine lines and leave you with smoother, flawless skin. The most common areas people use Botox for are around the eyes and the edges of the mouth. It is also typically used to treat forehead lines (also known as worry lines), and has seen widespread success in all of these applications.
Why Should I Consider Botox?
A few clients have asked us whether it’s a good idea to consider Botox, and we give them the truth about why it’s better than many of the other options on the market. Botox is one of the least invasive procedures you can find that helps you deal with these cosmetic issues. Unlike surgery, these injections have minimal downtime, not requiring you to take time off your job or to be bedded in a hospital for recovery. It’s also highly effective, with most clients mentioning how much younger and better-looking their faces look after a single treatment. However, Botox does have a limited lifespan, as the body tends to break it down. Regular treatments are necessary to ensure you retain your youthful looks.
How Long Does A Botox Treatment Last?
Botox doesn’t typically last longer than six months per treatment. The Mayo Clinic suggests that three to six months is the typical lifespan of a single Botox treatment, depending on how fast your body neutralizes and removes the toxin. If you want something that lasts a bit longer, you might consider Dermal Fillers. PMN Health and Wellness also offers this service to our clients, along with a wide variety of beauty treatments.
