One of the most common questions that potential patients of a cosmetic procedure ask tends to be “Is the procedure safe?” Safety for our patients is our highest priority at the Skin & Vein Center. Even with procedures that are easy to administer and have a proven track record for customers, safety should still be handled with care. Botox® is one such procedure and is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the industry. Here is how the safety of Botox® Injections is treated at the Skin & Vein Center:
Botox® has been around for years in the cosmetic industry and continues to be one of the most popular treatment options to reduce the signs of aging. Botox® works by injecting a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin to relax the muscles around the areas you want to be treated. This causes the disappearance of fine wrinkles, crow’s feet, and frown lines to reduce. Since Botox® has been around for so long, it has gone through continuous tests to be approved by the Food and Drug Administration. This approval ensures that Botox® continues to be a safe and effective treatment for its patients.
Unlike other cosmetic procedures that target the signs of aging, Botox® injections are fast in both treatment and recovery length. Botox® treatments involve extremely small injections that can be completed in as little as five minutes. Patients can immediately return back to their busy schedules with no surgical incisions needed.
All cosmetic procedures have the potential to cause uncommon side effects in patients. With Botox® injections, side effects may include a slight tenderness around the treated area and a mild headache. The headache can easily be treated with store-bought pain relievers. You have little need to worry about potential side effects from Botox®.
Since Botox® uses extremely small injections, our patients feel little to no pain during the procedure. Those who are more sensitive may feel the injection more than most of our patients.
