Your Biggest Botox Questions Answered
Posted on 02 March 2020
If you’ve been thinking about getting Botox, you probably have a lot of questions (and some misconceptions) about the procedure. We’re here to help put your mind at ease, and answer your biggest Botox questions!.
What’s the Ideal Age to Get Botox?
As everyone’s skin ages differently, many experts recommend getting the first treatment sometime between the late 20’s and early 30’s. So, the best time to get it done is before deep wrinkles set in. However, even if you already have deep wrinkles, you can still benefit from Botox treatments!
Does Botox Hurt?
Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for the Botox injections are very small (much like acupuncture needles), so the pain is usually very minimal. You can also opt for a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injections, and you may feel no pain at all! Plus, the entire treatment is usually done within a matter of minutes. Afterward, the treatment area will be a little tender, but any over-the-counter pain medication can help ease the discomfort.
Will My Face Be ‘Frozen’?
As much as we’d like to drop a ‘Let it go!’ line, we’ll refrain :). However, it’s funny to see depictions of expressionless Botox patients in the movies, but the reality is much different. Most people won’t even notice that you’ve received injections. The truth is, Botox reduces extreme expressions that accentuate and cause those lines we all hate, but the main goal is to minimize those wrinkles and smooth out your skin.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Results vary from person to person but, on average, it lasts up to five months after treatment. Avoiding smoking, stress, sun exposure and excess alcohol can help extend the effects of Botox treatments.

There are many ways you can fight wrinkles without Botox injections! Body Merry offers a wide variety of skincare products that are formulated with anti-aging ingredients.
