What Does It Feel Like to Get Botox?
If you haven’t had Botox before then you may be wondering what it will actually feel like. How will it feel when you get the injections? What will your face feel like after you get Botox? Keep reading to find out the answers to these common questions about Botox.
Is Botox Painful?
hurt. Many people feel anxious about injections, but you probably won’t feel much at all when you’re getting Botox. We use very fine needles to inject the Botox and it won’t be injected very far into your body. If you’re getting Botox in a very delicate area then we can also use a numbing cream to ensure that the treatment is as painless as possible.
Will I Be Able to Feel My Face?
Most of the horror stories about Botox are based on the early treatments that were available 10 or 20 years ago. At that time, people often overused Botox, which could result in a very stiff or frozen face. The lines were gone, but people were left with very unnatural appearances that made it hard for them to express themselves.
Botox has come a long way since then. If you’re getting your Botox treatment at a reputable clinic like Dermadoc then it will be administered by someone who knows exactly what they are doing. The minimum amount of Botox will be injected into carefully selected areas to achieve a very specific effect. We can use Botox to target specific lines or to give a subtle lift right where it is needed. The effects can be so subtle that no one will know that you’ve had Botox. People will simply think that you’re looking healthy and refreshed.
With these personalised, natural looking treatments, there is no need to worry about being left with a frozen face after Botox. You will still be able to speak, smile and express yourself normally, although the movements that produce deep lines and furrows will be reduced. You won’t feel any different either. Your face will move naturally and the skin will be smooth to the touch.
Should I Get Botox?
If you’re considering Botox then the best thing to do is visit Dermadoc for a consultation. We’ll answer all your questions and provide personalised advice on your treatment options.
It’s also worth remembering that one of the best things about Botox is that the effects are temporary. If you don’t like what you see, then you can ask us to try something different for your next treatment, or simple decide to go Botox-free in the future. Getting the treatment once doesn’t mean that you’re making a permanent commitment so you can try it out and see how you feel.
