Why Botox Continues to Have Such a High Satisfaction Rate

Doctors have known about Botox since the 1970s. In 2002, the FDA approved it for cosmetic procedures. Since then, it has become an increasingly popular option for men and women who want to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The team at IYA Medical, in Scottsdale, Arizona, recently shared some of the reasons they think men and women like Botox so much.

Botox gives you a younger look

Botox works by disrupting the signals between your brain and your muscles. When Dr. Armstrong gives you a Botox injection near your eyebrow, the chemical prevents the muscle from flexing. Instead, the muscle stays relaxed. As a result, you get smoother skin in that area.

Depending on your goals, your provider may give you several Botox injections. Unfortunately, a single injection won’t smooth all of your facial muscles. Getting a shot in your eyebrow won’t eliminate lines around your mouth.

By getting a few injections, though, you can eliminate or reduce the appearance of wrinkles all over your face.

Botox offers quick results

Botox injections reduce the signs of lines and wrinkles very quickly. After an injection, you can expect to see the full results in 7-14 days. Many of our patients see partial results in 2-3 days.

Speediness matters to a lot of patients, because they want to look their best when they attend special events, such as weddings and school reunions. You won’t find another option that improves your looks so dramatically within a week.

Botox reduces wrinkles for up to six months

Most Botox injections will last at least three months. Many patients report that their injections reduce lines and wrinkles for up to six months. That’s half a year from one session.

The long-term results make Botox popular among many patients. They don’t want to come to the office every month for injections. Once or twice a year, however, isn’t an inconvenience.

Botox doesn’t require any downtime

Some cosmetic procedures force you to spend time away from work and other obligations. Busy men and women don’t like being told that they have to spend a day inside with the shades drawn, let alone a week in bed.

Botox appeals to so many people because the injections don’t require any downtime. You can get your injections during your lunch break and go right back to work without any worries. 

Very few people have side effects

Most people never experience problems with Botox injections. Those who do usually get headaches for a day or two. Other side effects can include redness or bruising at the injection site, flu-like symptoms, and temporary facial weakness.

You can avoid facial weakness by leaving the injection site alone for at least 12 hours. If you touch it too much, you could spread the Botox to other areas. When that happens, parts of your face can droop. Still, the effects usually go away within a day or two.

As long as you choose a good doctor and take care of yourself, Botox is very safe.
