Many patients who are interested in trying Botox have a lot of questions about the procedure and its effects. We’re here to answer those questions! The fact is that Botox is a safe and effective procedure for helping you look and feel more youthful! In this article, we are going to address a few frequently asked questions about Botox.
Does the Procedure Hurt?
Botox is administered via injection so you will feel a little prick as the needle punctures the skin. Some patients liken the feeling to that of getting tweezed. If you are at all worried about the pain, talk to your doctor. They may be able to use a numbing cream to ease the pain.
What’s the Difference Between Botox & Facial Fillers?
It’s a common misconception that Botox and facial fillers are one in the same. That is not the case. While facial fillers fill in wrinkles, Botox is a relaxant that reduces wrinkles by relaxing the muscles.
How Long do the Results Last?
As with any procedure, results vary from patient to patient. Results also depend heavily on the area being treated. That being said, a general range for most patients is between three and four months.
