Botox in Schaumburg FAQs

Published on September 17th, 2018

Getting Botox in Schaumburg and beyond has become less taboo and more accepted within the past decade. In fact, Botox is the most popular cosmetic treatment in the United States! But that doesn’t mean the ins-and-outs of the procedure are completely understood by the general public. Here are some Botox frequently asked questions to help determine whether or not Botox is the right procedure for you.

Will I Look Numb?

There is a misconception that when Botox is administered, it results in a frozen or numb facial appearance. In simpler terms, patients may feel like they will no longer be able to make facial expressions. This is why it is important to find a qualified surgeon with years of experience administering Botox, as they will be able to judge how much Botox you need and help judge the size of your muscles.

Can it Help Wrinkles?

Botox is extremely effective in temporarily reducing wrinkles! Whether you have forehead lines that you don’t like or you want to get rid of frown lines or crow’s feet, the highly purified toxins in Botox can help erase them!

What are the Side Effects?

The side effects of Botox in Schaumburg are typically mild and short-lived. You can expect slight bruising, and, in one to five percent of cases, Botox may cause mild droopiness of the eyelid or the eyebrow. This usually goes away within two weeks.

Is it Going to Hurt?

You may experience slight discomfort, but it is no more than a small pinching sensation. Ice or topical anesthesia can help numb your face beforehand.
