Before anyone tries the first time, they always have some common questions. Read on to find out some of those frequently asked questions.

#1 – Does Botox Hurt?

It should not hurt, especially if a topical anesthetic cream was used to numb the skin before treatment. It is an FDA-approved nonsurgical injectable cosmetic treatment. It is administered with such tiny needles that there is minimal discomfort or pain.

In the rare event that you feel pain, let your doctor know and he will make every effort to minimize your discomfort.

#2 – How to Avoid Botox Side Effects?

Post-treatment, you may experience some soreness and slight redness or swelling. The master injector at About Face Anti-Aging will guide you on steps to prevent Botox’s side effects. 

For example, using ice before and after treatment helps to minimize bruising & swelling. It is also recommended to delay treatment for two weeks before or after vaccination or dental treatment.

#3 – Is Age a Factor to Consider for Botox injections?

No! Botox cosmetic treatment can be a youth-enhancing part of your beauty plan, regardless of your age. There is no “magic age” or “right time” to start Botox cosmetic injectables. Because it has so many benefits, you can choose to get the treatment at any stage in your life. 

Schedule a meeting with one of our About Face Anti-Aging professionals to find out if you are a good candidate for treatment.

#4 – What Happens if You STOP Using Botox?

There is no harm in stopping Botox treatments. However, you will notice the return of fine lines and wrinkles. It is recommended that you follow the recommendation of your treatment provider to prevent your issues from returning. After experiencing the benefits of this treatment, it will be hard to go back to a reality without them.
