Is There any Downtime with Botox®?
Botox® is a treatment that is usually carried out on the face, neck, chin, among other areas for the purpose of addressing signs of aging.
Botox® is an injectable treatment, and is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. You will usually see results from Botox® after around 72 hours after you’ve had your treatment.
It works by relaxing your muscles and ensuring that your facial muscles aren’t able to cause dynamic wrinkles or fine lines. Essentially, it helps to avoid the appearance of aging by reducing the risk of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. If you are worried about whether or not it is going to hurt, an anesthetic cream may be applied to the skin before the treatment begins.
Is There Downtime with Botox® Injections?
One of the great things about Botox® injections is that there is no downtime! The procedure itself is quick and simple, not lasting longer than around half an hour, meaning that you could even pop in and get this done in your lunch break!
As soon as it is over, you can get back to your normal life. There is no waiting around for your skin to heal, and there is no reason that you shouldn’t be able to resume everything you would normally do straight away.
Botox® Aftercare Advice
There are a few things that you should try to do if you have just had Botox® injections. Ideally, you want to gently exercise your face where you can. Don’t go too crazy, just try to keep it moving every now and then a little. There are some important things that you should refrain from if you have had Botox® though. While the injection site will heal quickly, you still need to avoid rubbing your face, as that could spread the treatment to unwanted areas. You also shouldn’t lie on the treatment area for optimal results.
You should also not do any strenuous exercise because of the heat could spread the treatment. Overall, the best course of action is to avoid the heat as well as sun exposure as much as you can.

Benefits of Botox®
The main benefit of Botox® is the ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It can help you to feel more confident in the way that you look, and all-around better about yourself.
Botox® has also been known to treat neck spasms and excessive sweating in some cases, so it may be worth looking into this if you suffer from either. It has also been speculated that Botox® may be able to help prevent chronic migraines in some people.
Am I a Candidate for Botox®?
To be a candidate for Botox® you must be at least 18 years old. You should not have this treatment if you are pregnant or nursing just to be on the safe side.
The ideal candidate for Botox® is someone who is physically healthy and has no kind of neuromuscular disease, now or in the past.
