Botox makes the world go ‘round, or so it feels in our office. Botox is a very popular anti-aging treatment that helps minimize “movement wrinkles” and may even help prevent the formation of new movement wrinkles with extended use.

So many of us are exposed to a new level of beauty through Instagram bloggers, who are able to market and sell to us through a feed of picture-perfect images including exotic travels, adorable puppies, and models whose beauty is a little more attainable than six-feet-tall runway models of yesterday. It’s no surprise that many of us are looking to tweak our image just a little bit, to feel better about ourselves. Those lines we didn’t know would become permanently etched on our faces do not have to be permanent anymore! If you’re interested in Botox for the first time, keep reading to learn all about this game-changing anti-aging procedure.

Will people notice I’ve had Botox?

Though we’re not shy about it, we understand that some people are less inclined to talk about their Botox. If you’re looking for a subtle change, make sure to do your research. Don’t get Botox from someone who doesn’t have the background or expertise to do a great job. If Botox is injected in the wrong place, you may experience noticeable side-effects.

How long does it last?

Expect your Botox to take effect around three or four days after your session. Your maximum benefits will appear around two weeks after your appointment (so plan ahead if you’re getting Botox to look fabulous at an event). Botox generally lasts between four to six months, though certain factors can affect this timeline. For example, very active people with faster metabolisms might find their Botox wearing off sooner.

How much does it cost?

Providers might charge by the session, or by the unit. Do your research, but don’t go with the cheapest provider just to save some money. Go with the best provider, who offers the best results. Saving a couple pennies won’t matter to you if your Botox is injected incorrectly.
