Just because something is popular, it doesn’t mean it’s right for you. However, when it comes to the question of safety, you can rest assured with BOTOX® Cosmetic. This injectable is one of the most widely-used aesthetic treatments on the market – and for a good reason. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been around since the early 2000s and has since built a solid reputation for being safe and transformative.
If you’ve been considering whether or not this injectable is right for you, you’re in luck! We offer BOTOX® Cosmetic right here at Stay Beautiful Medspa. What’s more, we’ve put together a list of four facts that should make your decision much easier. Read on and get in touch to learn more about this amazing treatment today!
1. Despite its Name, BOTOX® Cosmetic is Not Toxic
For those who don’t know, BOTOX® Cosmetic is made of a substance called botulinum toxin. This substance is used to block nerve signals that cause muscles to contract. According to the World Health Organization, BOTOX® Cosmetic employs a unique toxin purification and manufacturing process, making it safe for aesthetic treatments.
These injections are absolutely not something you should do at home, but here at Stay Beautiful Medspa, we administer our treatments in a controlled medical setting. Each session is tailored to your specific needs, and while some side effects are possible, they are typically mild and can be addressed here at our office.
2. Injections Are No Big Deal
Injections only take about 10 minutes to perform, depending on your specific needs. While some injection site redness can be seen after the process, it is typically minor and resolves on its own within 15 minutes.
3. BOTOX® Cosmetic Is Thoroughly Researched
BOTOX® Cosmetic has had a solid 20-year run since its FDA approval in 2002. During that time, it has been extensively tested and studied in independent clinical trials. One study conducted by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery tested over 8,000 people and discovered that the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic for facial enhancement, has a proven track record when it comes to both efficacy and safety.
Boasting an impressive history, BOTOX® Cosmetic stands as a great option for those who want to reduce wrinkles without opting for a more invasive and often more expensive treatment.
4. BOTOX® Cosmetic Requires No Downtime
Finally, many people are reluctant to dive into aesthetic treatments for fear of missing out on social gatherings or having to take time off from work. The great thing about this injectable is that it doesn’t require downtime after treatment.
As mentioned, injections can often be done in as little as 10 minutes – meaning you can stop by for a session during your lunch break!
