Botox Derby – The Truth about Botox

Botox has been around for decades and is still one of the most effective methods of diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Over time, lots of myths have arisen, causing people to be scared of the treatment or believe that it’s not for them. If that sounds like you, let us put your mind at rest by debunking some of the most common Botox myths.

1. Botox is unsafe

This one is absolutely not true. Botox has a long, safe history that includes years of research and testing to ensure it is completely safe for the human body. As long as you are attending a reputable clinic with highly trained professionals, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.

2. Botox leaves you with a frozen expression

When people think of Botox, the first thing that often comes to mind is a frozen, expressionless face. Nobody wants to not be able to show their feelings, which is why a lot of people are put off. However, when these anti-wrinkle injections are carried out correctly, it carefully targets specific muscles to reduce expression lines. Your practitioner will be able to find the correct balance so there’s still movement in your face.

3. Botox is permanent

The results of Botox are not permanent, so you will need to keep it up with regular treatments. Results usually last 3-6 months, but this can vary from person to person. After this time, your muscle movement will return, bringing those expression lines along with it. This is great if you’re a little nervous, as it allows you to see how you get on and potentially tweak the next round if necessary.

4. Botox builds up in the body

As the treatment is not permanent, the Botox will not build up in your body. The results will begin to wear off and if you don’t go back for a top-up, eventually the muscles and lines will just go back to their pre-treatment level.

5. Botox is just for wrinkles

Although Botox is amazing as a wrinkle removing injection, it can actually be used for so much more than that. It can work to lift the eyebrows, soften the jawline and raise drooping skin at the corners of the mouth. Medically, it can even be used to treat migraines and excessive sweating.

As soon as you’ve had your very first Botox injections, you might be panicking that nothing looks different but that’s totally normal. The first time botox is injected, it takes time to act. It’s possible that it may take 2-8 days to start seeing a difference. But two weeks after your appointment, you’ll see the full effects of your Botox treatment however, timings vary between individuals.

The number 1 question is always, does Botox hurt? Everyone experiences pain differently however Botox needles are extremely small so don’t usually hurt other than a small scratch. Of course, a skilled and experienced practitioner is a must, as we’ll know exactly where to inject, using just the right technique. Some areas will prove more sensitive than others or you may notice the after-effects more if it’s an area you use a lot such as around the mouth or for bunny lines (around the eyes)

You may get some redness, bruising or swelling or even a headache immediately after your treatment, you may notice small red bumps. These will resolve in around 20-30 minutes. Bruising is always a possibility. If you bruise, this will be very minimal and should resolve after a couple of days. You can reduce your risk of bruising by avoiding ibuprofen, aspirin and any over the counter supplement not prescribed by a doctor before your treatment.

You may develop a Headache after your Botox treatment. If this happens, you can take a painkiller such as paracetamol as per your regular dose. You must avoid using aspirin, ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory medication as these cause your blood to thin and can worsen any bruising.

Botox Injections Aftercare – Derby Nurses Standing By

Do get in touch if you are worried about any after effects, but do call us if you’d like a quick chat.

Try not to touch or massage your face even if you have a headache, Botox is an expertly injected protein, and massaging it can cause manipulation of the protein and cause it to spread into unwanted areas.
You should avoid exercise for 4 hours as strenuous movement may run the risk of causing the Botox to shift out of the position your practitioner has carefully injected it into.

As mentioned, it can take up to 2 weeks for anti-wrinkle injections (Botox) to take full effect.
Once your Botox takes effect, your muscle movement will be restricted. To gain back your youthful appearance, Botox will stop your muscles from moving when you frown or are surprised. Once your first time Botox treatment is done, you’ll find that the results last between 3-4 months.
