Whether you are just beginning your climb up the career ladder or enjoying the perks of a well-earned corner office, confidence is a characteristic that is intricately linked to success. In an effort to “put their best face forward”, many successful men and women are turning to Botox cosmetic treatments for an effective, non-surgical confidence boost. When administered by a skilled medical professional, Botox can give you a rested and rejuvenated appearance without the downtime associated with cosmetic surgery. And, while a cosmetic injectable may not improve your presentation skills, feeling good about your appearance can give you an extra competitive edge both in and outside of the boardroom. Here are answers to some commonly asked questions to help you decide if Botox is right for you.
What is Botox?
Botox is the trade name for a neurotoxin derived from clostridium botulinum toxin type A. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Botox is currently the most popular cosmetic procedure in the world with over 3 million procedures completed each year.
How does Botox work?
Botox freezes muscle movement by blocking the nerves that allow facial muscles to contract, essentially stopping unwanted wrinkles from forming and easing or even erasing the appearance of existing expression lines.
What areas of the face are treated by Botox?
Botox can be used to treat facial areas:
- Between the brows
- In the forehead
- At the sides of the eyes
- Around the lips
Are there any side effects?
The side effects of Botox injections are typically minimal; some patients experience slight bruising or redness at the injection site following treatment, but most have no side effects at all. Many people have their Botox injections done during their lunch hour and go right back to work; another reason it’s become such a popular option for busy, on-the-go professionals.
