Botox 101: The Beginner’s Guide to Botox

We all know someone who’s had Botox and come back looking like they just spent a month in a spa drinking collagen. Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments out there, offering an incredible and immediate solution to fine lines and wrinkles. It’s now spoken of and treated as commonly as a trip to the dentist.

If you’re considering Botox to treat fine lines and wrinkles, we know you have lots of questions. Consider us your Botox gurus! Welcome to Botox 101. Here are 5 commonly asked questions about Botox.

What is Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved neurotoxin that temporarily prevents communication between your nerves and your muscle, relaxing the muscle tension that causes wrinkles. It’s a simple process that takes a few minutes and will have your friends and family asking what you are doing to look so great.

How often do I need to get Botox?

It is important to note that while the effects fade, you will only need to go in three to four times a year to maintain it. If you want to make your face look smoother, younger, and wrinkle-free, a little Botox can go a long way.

Who should use Botox?

Healthy aging is not just for 40+ women anymore. Medical spas around the US report an uptick in appointments from younger women and men. Men commonly ask for Botox on the glabella (between the eyebrows) and the forehead, while younger women are looking to prevent future deep lines.

Should I be picky about my injector?

Yes! Only trust medical professionals and avoid Botox parties in someone’s home. I’m sure you’ve seen “Botox gone wrong” photos and you don’t want to be the subject of one. Ooh La La is a top 1% Allergan Injector and Dr. Kristen Jacobs travels the country training injectors on the medical artistry of Botox. Only trust the best with your face!
