The Ins and Outs of Botox
Botox is one of the most commonly sought after non-surgical procedures and also one of the most commonly misunderstood procedures. Whether it is how often to get injections or where to have them done, people tend to have a wide range of answers. After reading this, you will hopefully have a more educated understanding of these things and will be able to make better-informed decisions.
Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into the muscles of the face, including the forehead, around the eyes, between the eyebrows, around the mouth, and in the neck to improve the look of wrinkles, frown lines, and neck bands achieving a smoother more relaxed and youthful appearance. When applied with a talented and experience eye, Botox can be used creatively to life the brown and open the eyes, rejuvenate the mouth and lips, and shape the contours of the face.
An unfaltering aesthetic and years of experience are key qualities to look for in your Botox injector. Dr. Shapiro and Pat Foley-Nemitz R.N. are among the most experienced and talented injectors in the Valley and are able to communicate well with patients to ensure they get their desired results. Talking with your injector to make sure they understand what you are looking for is vital as well. Bring in pictures or ideas of the look you are going for; communication is the key to successful results.
Botox injections typically last between 3-6 months depending on a variety of factors. When getting injections be sure to mention if you’ve had them before and how long it’s been. If you have any big events coming up, plan your injections for at least six weeks before to make certain that the injections have time to settle and look their best.
