November 16 is National Botox Day!

Allergan, the makers of Botox, announced in 2019 that the third Wednesday in November would be celebrated as National Botox Day in recognition the impact of the brand on American culture. The idea is really rooted in starting a conversation with a qualified healthcare provider and embracing how we look. And we love that idea! In honor of National Botox Day, Boost Nevada is sharing everything you should know about this innovative, proven treatment for wrinkles and fine lines.

Common Questions about Botox

  • What is Botox? This cosmetic procedure delivers temporary improvement in moderate to severe crow’s feet (the lines extending outward from the side of the eye), frown lines (the “elevens” that appear vertically between the eyebrows), and horizontal forehead lines in adults.
  • Is Botox safe? Yes. Botox is FDA approved to temporarily improve the appearance of lines in the three areas mentioned above. And since dosing is key, you’ll be happy to know that Botox has been rigorously tested to pinpoint the most effective amount for frown lines, crow’s feet lines, and forehead lines.
  • Does Botox really work? Since being approved for aesthetic use, millions of people have received Botox with impressive results. Botox works by reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes the lines to appear for a smoother appearance.
  • What’s the most important thing to understand about Botox? First, remember that effects are temporary. They won’t last forever. To maintain a desired appearance, you’ll need to continue getting Botox treatments. However, it’s important to space out your treatments by at least 90 days, which means you’ll receive Botox no more than three times annually.
  • What can you expect with a Botox treatment? It’s quick and easy! Some people report that receiving a Botox injection feels like a small pinch. Results usually begin to appear with 24 to 48 hours, with the full effect apparent in 30 days.
  • Does Botox have any side effects? Like any procedure, Botox may lead to some side effects. In clinical studies, 3% of patients experienced eyelid drooping after treatment for frown lines and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling after crow’s feet line treatment. In those receiving treatment for forehead lines, 9% experienced headaches, 2% had eyelid drooping, and 2% had brow drooping. Some patients may also experience dry mouth or eyes, discomfort at the injection site, and neck pain. Overall, Botox is a safe procedure that works very well for the vast majority of patients.

One of the most important parts of Botox treatment is the provider. Experienced providers help patients achieve desirable and natural-looking results. On National Botox Day or any day, contact the experts at Boost in Reno to learn more about our skilled approach to Botox.
