Going in for your first dermal filler treatment can be a bit overwhelming. Some people have a real diversion to needles and the though of needles going into your face can pose some serious fears for some people. On top of that there are many misconceptions about Botox that this articel makes sure to put to rest. One being that Botox makes your face numb and incapable of forming facial expressions. This is just simply untrue.
As you get older, your skin gets drier and less elastic. Wrinkles can
form around your eyes (also known as ‘crow’s feet’), on your forehead
and on the edges of your lips. If these lines are making you frown when
you look in the mirror, perhaps it’s time to do something about it.
Botox may be the answer.
“Botox is an injection that can relax
muscles and reduce laugh lines creating smoother radiant skin,” says
Heidi Efinger, Nurse Practitioner at Central Wellness in Billings,
Botox is clinically proven to decrease the appearance of
moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles in over 11 million women
and men. If you’ve never had a Botox treatment before, here are five
things you should know before your first visit:
1. Botox is safe.
It’s an FDA-approved cosmetic treatment for the area between your eyes
(your scowl), and crow’s feet. Botox has been used for therapeutic
reasons since 1980 and has been proven safe.
should be certified. Botox is a medical procedure that takes
approximately 20 minutes and should be done by a certified medical
professional. “You should know who is injecting you and choose a
certified professional who has had Botox experience,” says Efinger.
