As you get older, you may notice progressing signs of ageing; some which you might welcome, and others perhaps not so much. Once over the age of 25, these signs can start to appear and take a toll on your confidence. If you are in this situation, then the word Botox might be familiar, either instilling thoughts of dread or desire. Here are some questions you might want to ask yourself before deciding whether it’s time to get Botox.
Are You Ready Financially?
It’s important to note that Botox, or botulinum toxin to use its scientific name, is an investment and can cost you around $500 for just the skin around your forehead! Don’t be fooled into any bargains. Anything that sounds too good to be true probably is, so avoid practices that offer bargain fillers, as these might be watered down versions of the botulinum toxin or could have also been stored at incorrect temperatures.
If you want to get the most from your money, then make sure you don’t start before you actually notice any visible lines or wrinkles, otherwise you could be tricking yourself into needing the cosmetic procedure for the rest of your life! Very costly indeed.
Do You Notice Deep Set Wrinkles?
If after analyzing your face you discover that your skin no longer bounces back after pulling an expression, then this could be a sign of static rhytids. These are the wrinkles which are so deep that when you relax your face, the lines are still visible. Depending on the severity of your wrinkles, Botox might not eliminate these lines; however, it can help to greatly reduce their appearance, helping you feel younger again. This works by reducing the contraction of facial muscles in these treated areas and can be performed by a cosmetic professional such as the medical doctors, assistant physicians and nurse practitioners at Dermani Medspa.
Can You Cope with Needles?
There is no denying that Botox isn’t exactly a walk in the park. Depending on which part of the body you are targeting, injections of the botulinum toxin drug can be made into the skin around your eyes, forehead, mouth, chin and neck to cause temporary muscle paralysis. Sound slightly terrifying? If yes, then this procedure might not be for you and perhaps you are better off looking into natural remedies that have a less dramatic effect on appearance but are much less invasive.
If you have answered yes to all of the questions above, then it might be time to book your Botox consultation and get started on your path to feeling full of confidence again. Just remember to avoid scam deals and do your research before deciding on a particular practice. It could be the difference between changing your life for the better and being the worst decision of your life, so take the search seriously and look forward to a younger looking you.
