5 Things to Know Before Getting Botox

Posted by Grain Creative on

When people hear “Botox,” they think of their frozen, overdone great aunts that everyone avoids at family functions because no one can read her facial expressions.

However, the best Botox treatments are the ones you don’t notice. 

One of the most common statements we hear in office is when a woman says, “I didn’t tell my husband I had Botox injections. He complimented me the other day and told me how rested I look. He has no idea.”

 

So, What is Botox?

Botox is a protein that modifies muscle movement (aka neuromodulator), which, when injected into a muscle, inhibits the muscle from moving. Botox injections are incredibly safe. 


Is there downtime and does it hurt?

We ask our patients to not sweat or have any sort of facial massage 24 hours post-treatment. It’s a pretty painless procedure.

 

How often do I need it?

Most patients are treated every 90 days. Some can space their treatments out a little more. 

 

Aren’t there different types of it?

There are four popular forms of neuromodulators on the market, however, we use Botox and Dysport because we love the results.

 

How much is it?

$13/unit.
