Should I Get Botox?

Should I Get Botox?

Botox® is all the rage due to its ability to diminish the look of lines and wrinkles, particularly around your eyes and on your forehead. Approved for use in at least 98 countries and supported by hundreds of peer-reviewed studies, it’s the go-to treatment for men and women bothered by the signs of aging.

At Nation's Best Family Health Care in Panama City, Florida, Roman Nation, MD provides expertly placed Botox injections. Here’s why you just might want to take advantage of her aesthetic services and join the millions who’ve experienced the beautiful benefits of Botox.

Botox is effective

Botox was the first drug of its kind to be approved to reduce the appearance of horizontal forehead lines, worry lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes. Botox is made from a purified neurotoxin that neutralizes nerve activity to the muscles that contract when you smile, frown, or wince.

These expression lines cause wrinkles to etch into your skin. When the movement is reduced with Botox applications, so are your wrinkles.

Botox is well-researched

More than 528 peer-reviewed articles and studies support the use of Botox for cosmetic purposes. This makes it the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind. It’s proven safe and effective.

Botox looks natural

Botox eases expression lines, but it doesn’t make you look like you’ve had serious work done. Dr. Nation applies just the right amount to smooth your complexion but not enough to make you look frozen and artificial.

Botox is quick

Botox treatments take about 10 minutes. The effects start to show up in 24-48 hours, with full results noticeable after seven days. The effects of Botox last up to four months, too. After that, you can have additional treatments to maintain your look.

Botox requires no downtime

Following a Botox treatment, you can go back to all of your regular activities — there’s no downtime necessary. Schedule Botox injections during your lunch hour, and go right back to work afterward. There are no side effects, either, so no one will even know you had the injections.

Botox treatments are nearly pain-free

You feel a prick with each Botox injection, but the needles used are incredibly fine so the discomfort is minimal. Most people tolerate Botox treatments well, without the need for any topical anesthetics.

Botox treatments have minimal side effects

You don’t even notice you had the injections done until the positive effects start to set in. Even if you experience mild bruising or redness at the injections sites, you can easily cover them with makeup until they fade — usually within a few hours or days.

Botox can prevent future wrinkles

Regular Botox treatments get you better and better results. Each subsequent treatment leads to effects that last longer than the previous one. Botox can prevent wrinkles from getting worse and, when started early, may even prevent wrinkles from developing in the first place.

Botox is unique

Botox is deemed “non-interchangeable” by the US Food and Drug Administration, meaning that no other product can match its safety and effectiveness. Botox has a unique manufacturing process that guarantees its potency.
