Just how much do you know about Botox?

Just how much do you know about Botox?

9 February 2016

Botox has become one of the most popular Anti-Ageing treatments, delivering instant results with minimal downtime. But just how much do you really know about this Line & Wrinkle treatment? Let’s take a look.

  • It doesn’t give you a frozen face

Many people wrongly assume that if you get Botox, you’ll be unable to express any emotions. The treatment is designed to relax facial muscles, rather than freeze them, which helps to smooth the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

  • You should always see a specialist

Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s safe to administer Botox yourself – it should only be done by a fully-trained specialist who will ensure the correct amount is administered to give you a natural look.

  • It can be used for prevention

There’s no ideal age for people to start having Botox. Although the average age of patients is mid-thirties, it’s now becoming increasingly common for people in their twenties to request the treatment.

  • It can be used to treat wrinkles all around the face

Many people assume Botox is just for treating wrinkles around the eye and forehead area but in actual fact, it can be administered in any part of the face, as well as on the neck.

  • It might not always be in needle form

Currently, Botox is administered via a needle but there are already trials in place for a topical form of the treatment – which may be of interest to those afraid of needles.

  • It’s virtually pain-free

One of the good things about this Anti-Ageing treatment is that you won’t feel much pain – plus there’s really no downtime afterwards either so you’re free to resume your daily activities.
