With Botox fast becoming popular, the information you encounter must be correct, particularly if you are considering undergoing this treatment. Here, we at Rebecca Taylor Aesthetics use our expertise to ensure that you are well informed about Botox treatments.
What is Botox?
Botox is a substance that, when injected, relaxes the muscles in the treatment area. Its primary use is for diminishing lines, wrinkles and the effects of sun exposure, but it is also effective in targeting chronic migraines, as well as helping patients who suffer from excessive sweating.
MYTH #1 – “Botox is permanent”
It is commonly believed that the effects of Botox are permanent, but this is untrue. Results will last from 3 to 4 months and, after this time, your muscles will simply return to their normal state. Any Botox treatment that claims to achieve permanent results is likely extremely unsafe. If you are unsure about treatment, we always offer an initial consultation at which we will offer honest advice to ensure you make the right decision, before explaining the best treatment plan for achieving the results you want.
MYTH #2 – “Botox isn’t safe”
Botox is a very safe treatment if performed by a medical professional. Although treatment can be administered by anyone, to ensure your safety, we strongly advise that you visit a reputable clinic with qualified practitioners. Our team are highly qualified and maintains a focus on patient safety. This way we are recognised by Save Face, a national register of accredited practitioners who have been inspected against a robust set of standards to ensure safe care. Rebecca Taylor is also a registered nurse and an independent aesthetic nurse prescriber. Her in-depth knowledge ensures that as well as achieving youthful and natural-looking results, you will remain safe while doing so.
MYTH #3 – “There are major side effects”
This is also untrue. There are some minor side effects associated with undergoing Botox treatment – such as some bruising, redness or itchiness at the injection sites – but these are temporary and should subside within a short time. Other side effects may include headaches, fatigue and dizziness, but these are uncommon and will vary from person to person. Most people will usually find that they can return to work 2 to 3 days after their treatment.
