In this day and age, it might seem as though everyone but you are getting Botox! It’s become more mainstream, so people tend to talk about it more! The decision to get Botox isn’t to be taken lightly. You know the aesthetic benefits are great, but we know you have other questions on your mind. Here are some things to take into account before your appointment!
Research your doctor! There are many providers who can inject but haven’t been properly trained. A psychiatrist, a dentist, and even an untrained nurse are all legally able to inject Botox in Colorado. Go to someone who does it regularly and often! It’s your face!
The Cost. Sure, Groupon might be running a 50% off sale for Botox with a spa down the road. But is your appearance really something you want to get on sale? Sometimes paying a little more is better in order to work with someone who has extensive education & experience. The cost of Botox is based on units. Your injector will be able to tell you how many units you need when they see you, so you can calculate the cost prior to your treatment.
Understand the Side Effects. Know before you go and plan around special events! Common side effects include bruising and swelling. If you’re attending your best friend’s wedding tonight, you might want to wait until tomorrow to get your injections.
Plan Ahead. Getting injected two days before an event isn’t going to erase those crow’s feet in time! Botox can take up to 7 days to fully kick in. Plan ahead!
Think Long Term. Botox can shave years off your appearance by smoothing out wrinkles & getting rid of frown lines. But, it can be expensive! But think about this: getting your Botox regularly now, can actually save you money later! When your muscles can’t crease your skin over time, those wrinkles don’t set in and become deeper every year. It’s actually preventative! Treat those lines now, and have less to treat in the future!
