What to Know Before Receiving the BOTOX Procedure

peels and facials

The BOTOX procedure has become an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment over the years. Using the neurotoxin botulinum toxin, the medicine is injected into the muscle to be treated. It subsequently paralyzes the muscle, which stops the wrinkling process and smooths out lines that already exist.

Length of Treatment and Results

The treatment process is often referred to as a “lunchtime routine,” because it takes just 10 minutes with zero recovery time. Patients start seeing results in four days or less. The effects of BOTOX last between three and six months, so if you wish to no longer receive treatment, the effects will disappear and your skin will return to its normal growth cycle.

Safe for Use

BOTOX is the only FDA-approved method of temporarily treating crow’s feet, wrinkles, and other fine lines. In fact, it is the preferred method used in 78 countries.

For a Wide-Range of Patients

One misconception about BOTOX is that it is only for older women. Men can also seek benefits from BOTOX due to its age-refining abilities. Specialists also recommend patients as young as their 20s receive treatment as a method of starting the anti-aging process early.

ANU Special

ANU Medical Spa prides itself on offering monthly specials to its patients to thank them for their loyalty. During the month of August, patients can receive the BOTOX procedure at $11 a unit as opposed to the standard $15.

Warnings for Tentative Patients

If you are considering BOTOX, please make sure you are going to an official office. Distributors of the BOTOX procedure should be licensed medical professionals. Serious side effects most often occur when the treatment is administered by someone without proper training. Be wary of those who offer BOTOX at heavily discounted prices, because they may not be legitimate sources.
