It’s safe to say, Botox cosmetic is thriving. Approximately, 7 million Americans get Botox each year. It is so popular because of how quick and easy the treatment is. The results are said to be “amazingly addictive” because of how fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away. The goal is always to look like a better version of yourself and natural results are what you will see when treated at Rejuv.
So what exactly is Botox and when should I start getting treated? In case you didn’t already know, Botox is also known as Botulinum toxin, a neurotoxic protein produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum and related species. After it is injected, it works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity. This is why frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look smoother. Someone in their 20’s could highly benefit from starting the treatment early on because of how Botox can “train” a person’s face to not fall into a habit of creating pre-mature wrinkles. Regardless, the sooner you begin Botox treatments the better, especially to prevent wrinkles from deepening or becoming more apparent.
How many units will I receive? Everyone is different so unit amounts can vary. Take a look at the graphic here for a breakdown of average unit amounts per treatment area.
How long does it last? Botox lasts 3-4 months on average.
Does it hurt? Botox is injected into the skin but there is no severe pain associated with the treatment. A small pin prick would be most accurate to describe the feeling, but it is very minimal and completed quickly.
