Here at Rice Family Vision in Duncan, OK, we often receive many questions about Botox. Our optometry team is trained to provide Botox cosmetic treatments if you have thought about the procedure. Below are common questions that we receive about Botox.
Which Areas Can Be Treated with Botox?
The skin on the face is fragile and delicate. For this reason, Botox may be used in optometry for the forehead and crow's feet.
What Can I Expect from a Botox Treatment?
Botox treatments are quick and painless. You are not required to get anesthesia, and there is little recovery time. You can usually return to work or your regular activities immediately after Botox treatment.
Is Botox Painful?
Many patients report no pain during the procedure. There may be minimal discomfort during the injection and a mild numbing sensation afterward. However, most patients do not describe it as painful.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
Each patient's results may vary slightly. However, most notice a significant change in three to five days. It takes time to see a considerable change using any aesthetics.
How Long Does Botox Last?
Botox treatments generally may last between three and five months from the initial injections. Over time, the body metabolizes Botox, and lines or wrinkles could reappear. Periodic maintenance every three to four months is recommended for the best aesthetics.
When Should I Get Botox?
There is not a right or wrong age to start receiving Botox. However, we will provide professional consultation to know if Botox is right for you.
Is Botox Safe?
The FDA approves Botox to reverse lines and wrinkles. However, Botox is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Also, if you suffer from neurological conditions, it is not advised.
Does Botox Have Side Effects?
Botox could have minor side effects such as swelling, redness, and tenderness. You can contact our office if you have any concerning side effects. We are here to address any issues that you have.
