What you should know if you are looking for Botox near me in Franklin, TN
If you are in Franklin, TN and looking for “Botox near me,” you’ve come to the right place. CoolSprings Laser, Aesthetic & Skin Care Center has the anti-aging treatment, and the answers you’ve been seeking.
Botox is among the top wrinkles treatments in the world, with millions of successful procedures performed every year. People are getting Botox at an earlier age, they are using it in more areas of the body, and they are using it to treat a wider variety of conditions than ever before. It is so popular and so common that it has been called the aspirin of our era.
What you should know about the safety of Botox
One of the most common, and unfounded, concerns about Botox is botulism. It is true that Botox is derived from clostridium botulinum, which is the same type of bacteria that causes botulism. However, it is important that you understand that you will not be injected with the bacteria. Instead, the formula is made from highly purified and sterilized onabotulinumtoxinA, which is a byproduct of the bacteria.
Botox injections are considered quite safe for most patients, if they are performed by an experienced and qualified professional. As with any medicine, side effects or adverse reactions are possible; however, they are quite rare. The most common side effects are mild swelling and bruising at the injection site, and these should resolve within a few days. To reduce the chance of bruising, avoid aspirin or NSAIDs prior to treatment, and avoid rubbing your face after the procedure.
How much is too much?
Some patients ask if too much Botox can be bad. In reality, it can, but you don’t need to worry unless you’ve been treated by an unqualified practitioner. A little too much will result in undesired aesthetic results. A higher than ideal dose will also increase the risk of side effects or complications.
The safety, as well as aesthetic outcome of Botox treatment is highly dependent on the skill of the injector. The team at CoolSprings Laser, Aesthetic & Skin Care Center is composed of trained clinicians with many years of experience. We use a carefully measured amount of Botox, injected in strategically chosen locations. Beware of providers with inadequate experience, or even worse, those who are not even qualified. Botox is a medical procedure, and it should be provided in an appropriate setting, by a properly trained professional, under the supervision of a physician.
Why precision dosage is important:
- The impact of Botox is localized: If it is injected in the face, it will not affect other areas of the body. That means you don’t need to worry about it affecting your muscles or organs. It also means that the quality of the result is dependent upon precision location of injections.
- The amount of relaxation depends on dosage: If too small of amount is injected, the muscle will not soften enough to relax wrinkles. However, don’t assume that more is always better. If too much Botox is injected, the muscle will go beyond soft to inanimate, resulting the dreaded “frozen face.”
No, it’s not too soon (or too late) for Botox
Another concern we frequently hear is starting Botox too soon. When you first notice fine lines forming when you smile, laugh, or frown, they are fleeting. The moment you relax your face they will disappear. You want to wipe them away, but you wonder if professional treatment is an over-reaction. However, starting Botox at this point can actually prevent the onset of wrinkles and deep lines by keeping muscles soft and supple.
Those fleeting wrinkles that you see now will gradually deepen. As skin repetitively folds in the same place, it develops etched lines, which remain visible even when your face is relaxed. Early Botox stops these lines before they start.
If you’ve already waited too long, don’t worry. Botox alone many not be enough to combat advanced signed of aging, but it is often used in conjunction with other minimally invasive treatments to effectively turn back the clock.
