Botox is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgical procedure that is performed to counter wrinkles and prevent them. In the United States alone, the demand for Botox procedures has been higher than ever before.
- One of the major reasons for the popularity of Botox is the ease and simplicity it offers. The procedure is quick enough and most times does not last more than an hour. Also, Botox procedures require minimum to no downtime for recovery.
- Some common effects such as swelling, redness, rashes are observed but are very rarely noticeable. Apart from a mild headache, no major side effects are reported.
- The doctors suggest not lying down for a few hours immediately after the treatment and the patient can return to normal activities immediately after.
- Botox thus effectively has no recovery period and generally takes a couple weeks for its effect to show.
