Botox has become one of the most commonly sought-after cosmetic procedures. Each year, hundreds of thousands women and men receive this benign injection to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin. If you’re considering Botox for yourself, here are three important facts you need to know, but may surprise you:
1. It’s Temporary
All good things come to an end, and when it comes to the lifespan of Botox, this good thing comes to an end every three to four months. The process is relatively easy, minimally painful, and takes around 15 minutes to administer, but a single vial (100 units) of Botox costs anywhere from $350 to $500. Depending on the results you’re trying to achieve, you may make use of more than one vial, increasing your yearly Botox expense even more.
2. You Can Develop a Tolerance
Even if you start with a lower dosage and spend around the $350 mark for your first few treatments, you’ll likely have to pay more in the future as your muscles build a tolerance to the effects of Botox. To achieve your desired results every time, your physician may need to increase your dose in the future.
3. Botox Isn’t for All Wrinkles
Botox is sometimes understood as a catchall for anti-aging wrinkle treatments, when in reality, Botox is only effective against intrinsic aging caused by expression lines. The treatment works by paralyzing the facial muscles underneath the skin, preventing wrinkles like crow’s feet or brow furrows. Botox can’t address wrinkles caused by extrinsic aging, the damage to the skin caused by outside forces—namely, sun damage. Other wrinkles may be too deep or the facial muscles too slack to respond to Botox, so they require different solutions.
Luckily, there are alternatives and supplements for Botox like the Brazilian Facelift by BRZLNSKIN. Lower the costs of treatments by making your Botox last longer with the powerful peptides in Bratoxin and Bratoxinsta, while you nourish your skin overnight with the Açai Triple Stem Cell Complex.
Already a powerful regimen, Brazilian Facelift is about to get a boost with a new serum specially formulated to support Botox treatments: BTX-BOOST. Coming soon, this highly concentrated blend of peptides helps support the life of a Botox treatment, while also encouraging natural relaxation of facial muscles, easing tension and reducing expression lines. You might even find you can skip your Botox appointment thanks to this incredible and simple regimen!
