A common misconception is that you will look “fake” if you use Botox. The fact is: that cannot be further from the truth. Botox (Botulinum toxin) is a neurotoxin peptide that is used in tiny safe doses as a treatment to relax overused muscles of expression and thus soften wrinkles such as laugh lines or frown lines.
Nowadays, there are many places that offer this treatment. Be selective who you choose to administer this treatment as you would want a well qualified and skilled MD as your injector.
As with works of art, anyone can buy paint and start painting. However, the outcome will depend on the artist’s skill and talent, and levels of these attributes will vary widely dependent on the artist..
Similarly, aesthetic treatments are a form of art. Anyone can technically be trained to inject, but results will vary.
Now, the Botox treatment itself is not painful, as it is done with such a small needle that you might only experience mild pin prick sensation. There is no downtime that you would need to spend in recovery, and you can easily have it done during your lunch break!
Additionally, Botox actually helps prevent the formation of wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that wrinkle the skin, thus preventing the wrinkles from forming in the first place.
As for treating the well established wrinkles: the deeper and the more established the wrinkles are, the more Botox they will require for treatment, and the longer it will take your skin to remodel and eventually smooth out.
People of all ages and genders use Botox. It is becoming a common trend in young adults and more people do it than you would think.
