Is Botox® Safe?
Botox® is a relatively safe procedure for most people. However, if you are pregnant or have egg allergies, please talk to your Radiant Complexions skin care expert to decide if Botox® is right for you.
What To Expect After Botox® Treatment
For the first 2 to 3 hours after treatment, take it easy and do not rub the treated area. After that, you can return to your regular activities. It can take 3 to 4 days before you notice an effect from the Botox and the full effect may take up to 1 week. Some individuals might have some slight bruising around the injection site for a day or two that can easily be concealed with makeup.
How Long Does Botox® Last?
With steady use Botox® can last up to 4 to 6 months before you will begin to see the wrinkles return. In the beginning you can expect up to three months of improvement. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles will begin to reappear and need to be treated again. To see continued results, schedule additional follow up Botox® treatments from your Radiant Complexions skin care specialist. Your fine lines and wrinkles may appear less severe with time after multiple treatments because the muscles are being trained to relax.
Does Botox® Have Other Uses?
The same Botox® that is so useful for wrinkles can also solve the problem of excessive sweating. The FDA has approved the use of Botox® for excessive underarm sweating (axillary hyperhidrosis). With Botox® injections, patients can be free of excessive sweating for up to seven months.
