Lines and wrinkles around your eyes can make you look older than you are. However, the good news is that with Botox, these lines and wrinkles can be erased and prevented from getting worse. It is an injectable that enables the fine lines and wrinkles’ softening and relaxes your facial muscles. As a result, you get a more youthful and vibrant appearance.

What You Should Know Before the Botox Injection
Dr. Riehm discusses the Botox injection procedure to ensure you are comfortable and that it is the best option for you. Some of the side effects that you can experience include bruising, headache, and little pain in the area of injection.
It would help if you discussed with your doctor about any medications you are taking in order to prevent excessive bleeding at the injection site. Your doctor will let you know if you need to skip taking any medication in advance before the injection.
To ensure that you acquire a more natural and expressive look, you should be easy on yourself and be flexible on the Botox injection, as advised by the doctor. The injection dose can be adjusted and customized for you.
Botox injection procedure only takes a minute or so, and there should be no downtime. Ultra-thin needles are used, making pain not a concern, as the feeling is just like a pinch. However, if you are sensitive to needles, numbing can be done for your comfort.
The results are seen within 3-10 days, depending on the area of treatment. However, full results are visible within 5-14 days. It is good to note that Botox results last only for about four months. However, your look can be maintained through retreatment.
Aesthetic Benefits of Botox Injections
Botox can go beyond getting rid of wrinkles and lines around the eye. The benefits include:
· Treat Migraines. Botox helps in the treatment of migraines by blocking communication between sensory nerves and pain receptors. This alleviates pain, reducing the frequency of migraines. However, more research is ongoing to unveil how Botox treats migraines.
· Stop sweating. Botox can hinder excessive sweat production from the sweat glands. You can get a Botox injection under your armpits if you always seem to be sweating to control the sweating.
· Stop eye twitching. Even though common, eye twitching can be annoying. Botox can help stop this by relaxing the muscles around the eye. There is a possible reaction of experiencing reduced pain, blurry vision, and muscle spasm.
Botox injection is an effective way to counter wrinkles and face lines, but also has other aesthetic benefits.
