If you are new to Botox, you might worry it’s a fine line between a natural, fresh-faced look and an overdone treatment. We got you. Here’s everything you need to know about getting your first Botox injections.
What is Botox (botulinum toxin)?
Botox is a Neuromodulator, which means it alters the ability of your muscles to contract, so you won’t be able to crease the skin on your forehead, around your eyes or between your eyebrows too much. By injecting it in small doses, it not only prevents the formation of wrinkles, but also helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines, and gives you a fresh, relaxed look.
Botox is approved to treat frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines. After injecting, you’ll notice a difference within a couple of days, and results last for three to four months.
Where should I apply Botox?
Here’s a quick list of the most common Botox applications:
Upper face (forehead, crow’s feet, and 11s): Do you often raise your eyebrows at every questionable decision your friends make? Treating your upper face will give you that refreshed, youthful vibe.
Mid-face and mouth: There’s nothing more attractive than a genuine smile. Treating smile lines and the lines along the midface (near your nose) let your warm, welcoming smile shine through.
Lip flip: For a fuller upper lip appearance, this simple treatment relaxes the muscles around your lip. That way, the part of your upper lip that’s inside your mouth “flips” upward and outward for a full, luscious pout.
Gummy smile: With a little bit of Botox, a previously gummy smile is easily softened to show less gum.
What should I know before my first Botox appointment?
The biggest differentiator in getting Botox is the person delivering your treatment. Yes, these treatments are common, but you’ll want to know who’s administering your treatment and what their results look like. Spend some time researching the best Botox in Marbella (or wherever you are), looking specifically for reviews and before/after shots. Believe it or not, administering Botox is an art form, and you want to make sure you book with a medical doctor who has a skilled, subtle hand.
Here’s another tip: you can request Vit&Drip Center Botox consultation before booking any services. That way, you can get to know us before you commit to a new procedure.
Another thing that’ll help you relax before your procedure? Understanding that Botox isn’t permanent. The effects wear off completely in three to four months. While we’d love to see your face at that three month mark, it’s up to you to decide the best schedule for your desired look.
