4 Things About Botox

Wrinkles are an inevitable part of the aging process. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. This is where Botox comes in. Botox is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting botulinum toxin into the skin to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. While it may seem like a scary procedure, Botox is actually quite safe and effective. In fact, many women report that Botox has helped them look younger and more refreshed. If you’re considering getting Botox, here are some things to keep in mind: 

1) Make sure you choose a qualified doctor who has experience with this procedure. 

2) Expect some minor swelling and bruising after the injection. 

3) The effects of Botox take time to take effect so be patient.

4) You have to return every few months for additional treatments to make the effects last.

1- Let’s talk about choosing a qualified doctor and practice.  Many places offer wrinkle reducers like Botox these days but if you choose an inexperienced or unlicensed person to deliver your treatment you risk many things.  You can have droopy eye, droopy mouth, and possible cause permanent damage to your nerves.  Victory Wellness is a REAL MEDSPA with a REAL DOCTOR, not some friend working out of their living room.  

2- You are getting Botox njections and Victory always tries to minimize the impact of any procedure. That being said you can experience minor bruising or bleeding at the injection site.  This is very normal, ask the doctor if you need help with this or bruise easily.

3- Botox treatment takes time, sometimes a few days to a week for it to fully impact your look.  Once you get your Botox injections, make sure you follow the doctors instructions to get the most from your treatment.

4- Botox gives you great results and it can last a few months but remember it is an on-going treatment plan to keep these results.  Plan on seeing the doctor every few months for new injections to keep your look fresh.
