It is not surprising that people have strong feelings when it comes to Botox – on both sides of the aisle. Before you let the naysayers keep you from the benefits that Botox has to offer, you owe it to yourself to learn about some of the surprising benefits and how you can avoid the potential side effects that they tend to make into a bigger issue than they really are.
First of all, yes, Botox isn’t cheap and the beneficial effects don’t last forever, but that hasn’t stopped people – roughly 3 million Botox treatments every year, in fact. It seems that you cannot put a price on great-looking skin and enhanced confidence. Many contribute quite a bit of their career success to their Botox treatments, as they are able to continue appearing youthful, vibrant, and self-assured, which gives them a competitive edge.
Another amazing benefit is that Botox softens existing wrinkles, preventing them from deepening, and keeps other wrinkles from forming. That is good news for anyone that is seeking a veritable fountain-of-youth experience.
As for the side effects, yes, there are a few to consider. However, there are ways to avoid many of them, and others affect a very small, almost miniscule, percentage of Botox cases and are not permanent. For example, in rare cases (less than 1%), there can be a bit of drooping in the eyelid or eyebrow area, but it will return to normal. Another potential side effect is bruising, but this can be avoided by not taking any aspirin or ibuprofen for 2 weeks prior to your Botox treatment. You can also avoid side effects by working with an experienced Botox specialist and discussing a light treatment to enjoy benefits while maintaining a natural appearance.
