Botox Results are Terrific, but is It Safe?

You may have heard that a treatment of Botox provides incredible results. It’s true. You may have also wondered if there’s a catch: Can a product really have such a positively dramatic impact and still be safe to use? The short answer is yes, Botox is safe; it’s even been approved by the FDA. But if the short answer doesn’t convince you, and you would like to know more about Botox as a product, the possible side-effects, etc., here’s why a Botox treatment, provided by the medical experts at Central Wellness, is both safe and effective.
Botox is a brand name, it’s not a procedure. But because the name has become synonymous with success in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, the name of the brand has evolved into the name of the treatment. And the reason the treatment is successful at diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, crow’s feet at the edges of the eyes, is because it blocks the nerve endings and allows the muscles in the face to relax. When the muscles in the face relax, the lines and wrinkles are much less pronounced. The myth that tends to circulate about how Botox is capable of diminishing lines and wrinkles is that Botox numbs the face; but, Botox doesn’t numb the face, that’s a misconception.
There are a few possible side-effects from Botox but they are minor. It’s possible that there will be slight redness or swelling at the injection site, but it’s minor and temporary. In fact, most people go back to their busy lives immediately following a treatment, so there’s no required downtime.
Hopefully this has cleared up some of the misconceptions surrounding Botox. Fine lines and wrinkles are a natural sign of aging; but, it’s possible that most people would agree that lines and wrinkles do have a negative impact on our appearance.
