Botox has been around for many years, but it's only now becoming more popular. Botox can be used to reduce wrinkles and lines on your face. It helps with the appearance of crow’s feet, frown lines, and forehead furrows. You may be wondering how much botox you should use or what type of plan is best for you. We've got all the information you need right here.
There are a few things you should consider when creating your botox plan.
The first is how often you want to get injections. Most people start with once every three months, but it's up to you how often you want to get them done. The frequency matters because it will determine how much you'll need and the size of your injections.
You may also want to think about the areas of your face that you want treated. Crow’s feet and frown lines are the most common areas, but some people also like to use Botox for the forehead or around the mouth. Other areas can include the chin and the neck.
Once you've decided what you want, it's time to find a doctor. Not all doctors offer Botox treatments, so you'll need to do some research. You can ask your friends or family for recommendations or look online. Don't just go with the first doctor you find, though. Make sure to read reviews and compare prices before making a decision.
When you're ready for your appointment, make sure to tell the doctor which areas you want treated and how often you'd like to get injections done. The doctor will then create a plan that's tailored specifically for you.
The next thing you'll need to decide is what type of Botox you want. There are two types: Dysport and Botox Cosmetic. They both work well, but they have different durations. Dysport lasts for about four months, while Botox Cosmetic lasts for about six months. You'll also want to consider the price. Dysport is a little bit cheaper than Botox Cosmetic.
Finally, it's important to think about aftercare. Your doctor can help you with this, and advise you on how to best care for yourself after your treatment. This will help ensure it lasts longer and you get the most out of your Botox treatments. However, some of the key tips for Botox aftercare are:
- Don't rub your face: this can disrupt the injection.
- Don't exercise: this can cause your blood to flow faster and affect toxin absorption.
- Apply ice packs on treated areas for a few minutes at a time, but no more than 20 minutes.
- You should also keep in mind that Botox isn’t permanent, so you will have to continue getting treatments.
- Keep away from heat and humidity, such as hot tubs or saunas.
- Wash your hands before touching the treated area of your face.
