Crow’s feet, frown lines and any kind of wrinkle is the last thing you want to see on your face when you look in the mirror. Those unavoidable signs of ageing can creep up on you sooner than you’d like and before you know it, you feel as though you’re staring at your parent rather than yourself.
It can feel like a depressing situation to be in, so the idea of having a facelift, botox or anti-wrinkle injections to give your face a refresh may have crossed your mind. Botox is the quick and effective way to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The fact that you can have it done during a lunch break with no recovery time is appealing to many people, rather than opting for a full-blown facelift.
It may be a simple procedure, but there are still some questions you need to ask yourself before you jump in. Here are some questions to consider.
Am I willing to do proper research to find a reputable practitioner who will administer the treatment safely?
If you go to the first person who says they offer this alternative procedure to a face lift, you could be doing yourself more harm than good. Check up on their credentials, look or ask for testimonials and find out how long they’ve been in business. Do this with a few before you decide to settle on one.
Am I happy and able to keep topping up every few months?
Unlike a face lift, getting Botox treatments doesn’t last very long. You’ll probably find that you need to have injections every 3-4 months. Once you’ve had the procedure for the first time and providing you’ve had good results, it can be difficult watching the lines reemerge. If you’re unable to get more treatments, you might find yourself feeling worse than ever about your face.
Do I accept there still may be risks?
Just because it’s a simple procedure, that doesn’t mean it doesn’t come with any risks. Some possible aftereffects include nausea, a headache, facial pain or weakness that lasts a short while. Exceptional cases could include breathing problems.
If you’ve read through and answered with a definitive ‘yes’ to the above questions, you’re ready to enjoy the benefits of having Botox injections. Contact us today for more information.
