At Blu Cocoon MedSpa in San Jose, we have the distinction of being a Platinum Partner with Allergen (maker of Botox) which means we do a large volume of Botox treatments in San Jose. This also means that we know a lot about Botox! And we know that there are plenty of Botox myths floating around the web and in magazines so we are here to tell you what you need to know about Botox. This information is especially helpful for all the people who are thinking about getting Botox in San Jose for the first time. It will answer your questions and help you to decide if Botox is right for you.
- Good things take time! Botox does not work immediately. If you want to get Botox for an event, be sure to plan ahead. Botox can take anywhere from 2 to 5 days to set in and may even take up to two weeks to see the full effect.
- Botox is for everyone, even those who have had plastic surgery. Many people think that once they’ve had a brow lift or facelift surgery they would not need – or be able to use – Botox. This is not the case. If you want to diminish lines and wrinkles that may still be present, Botox is a great option.
- It is possible to develop a resistance to Botox after repeated injections due to the formation of antibodies. You can try to avoid a resistance buildup by using the minimum dose required to achieve a great result and by having your Botox done by an expert clinician who is well-versed in techniques to minimize antibodies.
- Botox is not the botulism found in food. Botox is an isolated molecule and does not contain the whole bacteria.
- Botox can help super heavy lines in the forehead. Others may tell you that Botox cannot treat deep forehead lines, but that is not always the case. It may take multiple rounds of treatment, but muscles will eventually soften.
- Working out will not make you need more Botox. What dictates how much Botox you need is the severity of your wrinkles and lines.
- Some say that Botox is used for the forehead and crows feet only and not used below the eyes. While this is mostly true, our expert clinicians can use very small doses of Botox to address lip lines, cupid’s bow on the lips, gummy smiles, and to get the “orange peel” look out of chins.
- Finally, remember that getting Botox isn’t like getting a manicure. Parties in a home, after-hours Botox treatments in an office, or Botox treatments in the back of a salon are normally not recommended venues for Botox. Even if the person injecting is a doctor or nurse, it does not mean that they have been properly trained. Botox is a medical procedure that needs to be done by a skilled clinician so that you can receive the right results. Go to a reputable place so that you may experience the best of Botox!
