Incorporating Botox Into Your Regular Beauty Routine

The moment is inevitable: You’re doing your makeup and suddenly notice tiny creases in the corners of your eye. Is this the start of aging? Before you panic and run to the nearest drugstore for an anti-aging cream, consider Botox. 

Hailed as the queen of anti-aging treatments, Botox involves injecting a substance called botulinum toxin into your skin. The substance temporarily paralyzes the tiny muscles in your face, which reduces the appearance of loose skin and wrinkles. Don’t worry — it’s totally safe

Dr. Norman Pastorek and nurse Janice Pastorek, expert facial plastic surgeons in Manhattan, believe Botox has a place in every healthy beauty routine. Here are their top seven reasons you should consider adding Botox to your regular beauty routine. 

1. Botox treatments are quick.

Looking for a quick beauty fix that you can do on your lunch break? Look no further than Botox — most treatments take an average of just 20 minutes. Your entire appointment may take 45 minutes to an hour to allow for doctor preparation and consultation. 

2. Botox is noninvasive.  

Unlike surgical procedures, Botox only uses extremely thin needles to inject the wrinkle-reducing substance into your trouble areas. You don’t need any incisions for Botox: It’s virtually painless, and most patients report feeling a subtle tingling feeling. 

3. Botox injections last several months.

Botox is extremely cost-effective: After just one Botox treatment, you’ll get to enjoy your results up to three to six months. No more dumping money on creams and serums that don’t work! 

4. Botox can treat multiple concerns. 

We think of Botox as a sort of one-treatment-cures-all procedure. Okay, Botox can’t solve everything, but it can solve most of the major beauty concerns. You can get Botox for wrinkles, fine lines, crow’s feet, laugh lines, forehead creases, droopy eyelids, uneven eyes and eyebrows, and more. 

5. Botox can be used for medical purposes. 

In addition to its cosmetic uses, many people get Botox injections to treat minor medical conditions. These include lazy eye, eye twitching, chronic headaches, overactive sweat glands (hyperhidrosis), overactive bladder, and neck muscle spasms (cervical dystonia). If you have one of these conditions, you can knock out two birds with one stone using Botox. 

6. Botox injections are safe. 

Botox is FDA-approved for treating multiple medical conditions and cosmetic concerns. As long as you are working with an experienced health professional trained to administer Botox injections, your treatment will be 100% safe. The Pastoreks have treated many happy patients who keep returning for cosmetic treatments.  

7. Botox doesn’t require any downtime. 

Many cosmetic procedures require downtime for recovery, but not Botox. If you’re looking for an effective, time-efficient procedure that you can add to your beauty routine as a periodic treatment, Botox is the treatment for you: You can get right back to work, play, and household duties after your Botox treatment.
