Are You Ready For Botox?


A lot people are now considering Botox as a beauty enhancement procedure. They say that it is because of reasons, mainly:

  1. Economy
  2. Convenience
  3. Effectiveness

Treatment Basis

Botox has been around for more than 15 years with almost 11 million documented people who have undergone the procedure. It is the most trusted procedure for treating the following problems:

  1. Wrinkles
  2. Excessive sweating
  3. Chronic migraine

But how does one know when it is okay to undergo the procedure? Undergoing the procedures requires preparation just like any other.

Treatment Preparation

Preparation would most generally include the following:

  1. Knowing the facts about the treatment
  2. Looking for the qualified person to do the job
  3. Being ready for the results

First thing to do is to gather all the necessary information about the procedure, and get the common things that you need to know such as:

  1. What it is about?
  2. What is to be used during the procedure?
  3. Are there any side effects?
  4. How is it done?

Explanation for Treated Areas

Botox is a protein-based substance injected into affected areas using very fine needles. This substance, when injected into the area, would cause the muscles to relax and achieve a younger, smoother skin. This procedure is most popular for reducing the fine facial lines caused by the natural aging process, along with reducing wrinkles. For the usual treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, Botox is injected to common areas such as:

  1. Forehead
  2. Glabella
  3. Crow’s feet or the area outside the eyes

This procedure has been proven to be effective in fighting the signs of aging, giving more and more people a younger natural look which is not always reported in other aesthetic surgical procedures like facelift.

The procedure is also done on an outpatient basis because it only lasts a couple of minutes, and the recovery period can be very quick considering that it is a non-surgical procedure. Very mild discomfort has been attested by patients who have had a Botox procedure and the results may last for 4 months and sometimes even longer.

This procedure can be used to treat excessive sweating as well. Botox is injected to sweat prone areas, specifically:

  1. Armpit
  2. Hands
  3. Feet

The result of this treatment has been reported to last for 6 months. Patients have reported significant improvement after going through this procedure to solve their problems on sweating.
Securing that you have the right person to perform the procedure for you is another thing to prepare for.

Although the procedure may appear very simple, it cannot just be done by anybody. The physician or nurse should be trained and experienced in administering the treatment. Remember, that training and skills are not the only things to look for in a practitioner; he or she should also be certified and licensed to perform the treatment. This is to ensure the safety of the patient and that they can and will be accountable. The best way to begin your search is through the internet where there is a long list of certified and licensed physicians and nurses.

Finally, prepare yourself for the result. There is no going back after the syringe has been injected into your face. Be aware of what you only need and what you want to achieve. Do not set very high expectations. Remember that to achieve optimum results, you have to be prepared:

  1. Mentally
  2. Physically
  3. Financially
