Botox is a great way to treat cosmetic issues. It can help smooth facial lines and help prevents wrinkles from forming on your face. A lot of patients who wants to have smooth and ageless face would like to try this treatment.
But despite the advertisement of its benefits and advantages, consumers should also be educated about the treatment fully so they can manage their expectations and know the upsides and the downsides of this facial treatment. Here are some major truth bombs you need to know before undergoing Botox in Dubai:
- It is not totally painless
Although most cosmetic clinics advertise Botox as a painless cosmetic treatment and procedure, you need to remember that there are needles involved. If your pain tolerance is low, you might feel a slight pinch once the needle goes through your skin. Not to worry though, there are numbing creams and pain-relievers available for patients who are sensitive to pain. You just need to ask your skin specialist on what pain-reducing method would be best for you.
- The result is not instant
One of the misconceptions of most patients about Botox treatment is that it would yield instant results right after the treatment. But the truth is, it is not. The results would typically become apparent seven days after the treatment and the result would last for 3-4 months. But it would also vary on certain factors like the depth of your wrinkles and pronounced lines. It would be best to ask your dermatologist or skin specialist on how long would the treatment last and when you can see the full outcome of the treatment.
- Be prepared for physical limitations
Botox is known as one of the less invasive cosmetic procedures since you don’t have to go under the knife to see the results. You can typically move right after the treatment. However, skin experts advise to limit your movements and refrain from doing serious physical activities. This could compromise your treatment and will cause the Botox to migrate to different parts of the face. It can result in drooping and paralyzed facial muscles.
- Less is always more
Some patients think that putting more Botox in the face would answer all their facial cosmetic concerns. But skin and cosmetic experts always use a minimal amount of Botox to achieve the natural look on your face. Going overboard with this treatment can cause unnatural looking face and facial drooping.
