Botox is considered to be the most popular non-invasive face lift treatment around the world. In 2002, it has been approved by the FDA. The treatment is beneficial in terms of reducing the signs of aging and is mostly availed by women aged between 40 and 59 years of age. The Botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, is also called the youth drug . It is basically a natural occurring protein that is used to treat visible aging lines and creases.

Small amounts of the drug need to be injected into the facial muscles, and it is capable of making you look younger and even providing a natural appearance. The course of Botox injections is considered to be a safe procedure with minimal side effects including tightness and slight bruising.

Before availing this procedure, you need to follow certain tips so that you can avoid a bad Botox experience. The tips are:

[1] First, you must find a good doctor or injector and be aware of the latest news. Botox is considered to be an art form and the injections need to be personalized depending on your facial anatomy and muscles. You should avail these injections from dermatologists or surgeons instead of profit centers or medi-spas that have inexperienced staff. Wrong injection procedures can cause facial disfigurements.


[2] While choosing a surgeon, his or her qualifications and training experience must be checked. Another important factor is the complication rate. A certain number of complication rates are involved with these procedures; doctors that say there has been no complication are certainly lying. The track record of the doctor and their validation, ongoing monitoring requirements, and recommendations from family and friends must also be taken into consideration.

[3] The other thing you need to worry about is the injection dosage. Less dosage will provide minimal results and excess dosage can lead to disfigurement of face, intense headaches and inability to control facial muscles temporarily.

[4] Those wanting to go to clinics offering a low price for Botox need to be careful about the staff and should not opt unless they know the injector and the facilities personally.

[5] You should also make sure that you are being injected with original Botox, which is manufactured by Allergan. The best way to identify if it the original is by looking for the hologram, expiration date and lot number on the box. The drug is usually available in a glass bottle that has a purple top. The illegal toxin used by some suppliers can be life-threatening and can even paralyze people if injected in wrong places.

[6] When diluted injections of Botox are administered to an individual, the individual is likely to develop Botox immunity . Therefore, you should only visit certified surgeons and use original products from trusted suppliers.

[7] Before taking Botox injections, you must avoid taking Vitamin E, Ibuprofen and certain herbs 4 weeks prior due to causing excess bruising. To ensure minimal bruising, you should ice the area before or after the injections and use other remedies like Arnica.

There are certain things that might happen after Botox injections have been administered that can be termed as bad experiences. Such features include spock brows, that can be corrected by giving the injection in the right place. Can cause drooping eyelids that occur due to injecting Botox too close to the eyelids and frozen expressions due to inability to close the mouth including drooping of one side of the face are results of excessive Botox and you should immediately seek medical advice if you have difficulty in swallowing and experience hoarse voice.

If you are availing Botox for the first-time, it is advisable that you apply a small amount first and trust the judgment of your injector. Sometimes, it takes 7 days to see any result of the injection and usually stays for a period of 3 to 6 months. This treatment is unmatched for making you look years younger and also is helpful in treating some other symptoms like excessive sweating, severe headaches and migraines, painful feet and much more.
