Through this blog post, we want to ensure that there are no surprises and you know what to expect from Botox. Read on to find out what Botox treatment is, who is eligible for Botox, and what to expect from Botox for the very first time.

What Is A Neurotoxin Treatment?

Neurotoxins, such as Botox, Jeuveau, Dysport, and Xeomin are becoming more popular so you may have found yourself wondering, “How does a neruotoxin work?” Neurotoxin treatment is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines on various parts of the body. Other uses of neurotoxins include: treatment for neck spasms, excessive sweating, overactive bladder, or even a lazy eye.

Neurotoxins work by weakening the muscles in the face that cause laugh lines, creases, crow’s feet, and wrinkles. The treatment allows the skin to look refreshed, youthful, and more refined. If the procedure is performed successfully by a qualified professional, neurotoxins do not give an unnatural appearance once the procedure is complete.

Who Is Eligible For Botox/Neurotoxin?

Non-invasive Body Contouring Treatment

Most people generally consider getting neurotoxin treatment when they start to notice signs of early aging (i.e. the appearance of laugh lines on the sides of the mouth or wrinkles around the eyes). However, neurotoxins can also be used as a preventive treatment during a person’s late 20s or early 30s.

Moreover, neurotoxin treatments are not just for women. Approximately 9% of men also tend to get neurotoxin treatments to look younger.

Make sure that you make an appointment for a consultation before proceeding with the treatment. Your doctor will guide you better on whether you should consider a neurotoxin or not.

What To Expect From Botox and other Neurotoxins

Neurotoxins are quick, safe, and very effective when used by the right qualified professional. Here is what you should expect with the treatment:

Before the Treatment

At the time of the consultation, your doctor might ask you to share details about your medical history and overall health. You will have to be completely transparent if you want the best results. You should also discuss in detail the areas of the face where you want the neurotoxin injected.

During Treatment

Keep the following information in mind to understand how the procedure works:

  • The treatment takes 20 minutes to half an hour.
  • The specialist will identify and mark the areas on the face that require treatment, and a mild cleaning solution will be applied.
  • The target areas will be numbed using ice or a numbing agent.
  • A thin micro needle is inserted into the target areas to inject Botox directly into the facial muscles.
  • Icing and pressure will be applied to the treated areas to prevent swelling and discomfort.
