Botox: Ten Things You Need To Know Before Applying
1 – Botox such aas jawline botox (โบ ท็ อก กราม which is the term in Thai) acts on the muscles of the face, relaxing muscle groups. Throughout life, the repeated contraction of these muscles creates expression marks on the face.
2 – Botox does not work miracles: expression marks on the face, once formed, are more difficult to disappear. However, Botox can soften them, and with continuous applications, they can even become imperceptible.
3 – Therefore, it is essential to prevent expression marks, subtly applying Botox at 30 and 40 years of age.
4 – To smooth furrows, deeper wrinkles, and loss of facial volume (with age, sun exposure, genetic factors, smoking, marked weight loss, etc.), Botox is not indicated. The right procedure is with fillers in these situations, especially those based on hyaluronic acid.
5 – The result of the Botox application appears in a few days, with the definitive effect in 14 days. The duration of the result remains, on average, for 6 months.
Nothing is more important than performing the safe procedure than you want, so these tips will show you how the pre, during, and post-process can be even better; continue reading:
6 – There are several brands of botulinum toxin on the market. Choose the most consecrated and safe: your face does not deserve savings in this choice.
7 – Artificial results – “blunt face,” an expressionless face – and even complications (temporary facial paralysis, eyelid droop, among others) are the result of exaggerated applications, lack of knowledge of the technique, and facial anatomy; in short, poorly performed or poorly indicated application.
8 – Anesthetic ointments, microfine needles (even thinner than insulin ones), and perfection in the technique allow a very comfortable application and minimal discomfort.
9 – Botox has no contraindication, with the exception of cases of hypersensitivity to the substance, which is extremely rare and impossible to diagnose before application. And in a remote situation of hypersensitivity, it does not result in any sequel to the patient.
10 – It is not just any application of botulinum toxin that will give you a great result. The ideal professional is a plastic surgeon and dermatologist knowledgeable about anatomy and the correct technique for the best, natural, light result. Well applied Botox is that: everyone will notice the improvement, but no one will be able to say why.
