How are you all? I hope you guys are enjoying my articles. I am super excited for the festive season as Ganpati Bappa will arrive in a few days. Well, today I would be debunking some of the most common myths related to Botox. Generally, Botox is used to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralysing facial muscles. Most of the celebrities have gone through Botox treatments so that they look younger and fresher.
1. What is Botox actually?
Botox is actually a drug which, when injected, blocks the signals your nerves send to your muscles, telling them to contract. This drug causes temporary paralyzation which helps to remove wrinkles. You would be totally satisfied after the treatment.
2. Does Botox contain chemicals?
Many people freak out due to the chemicals present in Botox shots. But, in reality, the amount of chemicals is very low in a Botox shot. It is actually measured in nanograms (just imagine how small the chemical is!). Apart from this, it actually contains traces of a toxin derived from bacteria called Clostridium Botulinum. Don’t worry, girls. It has been tested by various experts.
3. Which parts of my face can be treated?
Well, this is the most popular question that people ask. Botox is generally used around your mouth so that it helps avoid a gloomy smile. It can also be used to lift your nose and treat the surrounding area. Well, many people get this treatment even on their forehead to remove the lines and wrinkles.
4. Are there any consequences of Botox?
Before I answer this question, I would request you all to find an expert for Botox. One of the biggest consequences of Botox is that it leads to droopy eyelids. Generally, this is caused when the expert injects too close to the muscle that connects your eyelids. Over injecting or injecting too low on the forehead can also cause brows to droop and create a heavy look.
5. How long does it last?
A Botox treatment generally lasts 3-4 months. However, if you are taking a heavy dose, you can be benefited with long-term benefits.
6. Does it work immediately?
Nothing happens overnight, not even the Botox theory. Many people think that they can get their nose lifted in just one day. Even though you can go through the procedure in just one day, it takes around 3-4 days for the effects to kick in. You need to visit your expert all these days or until you get the desired results.
7. What if there is any mistake?
Many people say that mistakes that happen during a Botox procedure can be treated easily. Yes, it can be treated but until and unless you wait for the second surgery. Any mistakes cannot be rubbed off immediately and you will need to wait for at least 4 months to get it corrected.
8. Does Botox hurt a lot?
One of the biggest myths related to Botox is that it pains like hell. It does pain, but paining like hell is not the appropriate answer to this. Have you ever tried bikini wax? Botox pain is just like that; think you are getting waxed for longer hours.
9. How much does it cost?
The price completely depends on your expert and the area to be treated. If you are going for the forehead, the cost would be different than your cheeks. So, research and choose the expert who fits your budget.
10. Botox for the offer?
We, women, are always attracted towards the word OFFER. We love it and make sure we take all the advantage of an offer. But avoid taking up such schemes in an offer because it directly deals with your facial skin. Never take any risk with your body and skin. Just make sure you are dealing with a trustworthy expert.
