Does Botox Hurt? Is the Pain Worth the Gain?

Does Botox hurt? Botox injections are one of the most effective tools we have against fine lines and wrinkles. The good news is, there are ways to minimize discomfort while enjoying the benefit of Botox effects.

Does Botox Hurt

One of the most commonly asked questions when women consider Botox injections is “does Botox hurt?” As with any injection, there is the possibility of some minimal pain. This can be soothed, however, by applying ice or topical anesthetic to the treatment area prior to and after the treatment. Some areas, such as between the eyebrows, are naturally more sensitive than others, but there is no need to allow pain to prevent you from enjoying the full benefit of Botox treatment.

Botox Effects

When Botox is applied appropriately by an expert trained in its use, the effects are pleasing. The look of fine lines and wrinkles can be smoothed and areas lifted to give you a more youthful, rejuvenated look. It is crucial to be treated by a doctor with experience in Botox effects. Too much Botox can leave patches of numbness or even a lack of facial movement. When working with an experienced doctor, those risks are minimal and you can enjoy Botox effects at the smallest possible risk.

Botox Injections

Botox injections are one of the most popular and commonly administered cosmetic surgery options. It is able to lift the corners of your mouth that may be sagging due to age, smooth your chin, soften lines around your lips and lessen vertical neck cords as well as ease the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Seniors and Cosmetic Surgery-What’s Right for Me?

The signs of aging affect us more strongly as we become seniors and cosmetic surgery can provide answers. Dr. Rast offers solutions that can help you look and feel younger. Signs of aging like wrinkles and sagging skin can reduce self-esteem in women and men over the age of 65. When signs of aging begin to show on the face, neck, and body, there are options to help you look and feel younger.

and wrinkles. If the skin around your eyes is puffy or sagging and makes you look older or chronically tired, Dr. Rast can perform the procedure on the upper eyelid, lower eyelid, or both. The incision is hidden within a natural crease, and muscles and tissue are tightened, fat deposits are repositioned, and excess skin is removed. The result is a more “awake,” open-eyed appearance that creates a more youthful look.

 

Breast Augmentation

As women age, breasts tend to sag and lose volume. Dr. Rast can improve the profile, fullness, size, and symmetry of a woman’s breasts with the use of implants. The surgery involves small incisions made under the breast, under your arms, or around the nipples. The implants are inserted, and the incision closed with stitches or surgical tape.

 

Face Lift

A face lift for a senior can help smooth out signs of aging around your face and neck. It does not alter your basic appearance, but it may help you look and feel younger. Incisions begin at the hairline and continue around the ear, ending at the lower scalp. Another incision below the chin may be necessary to remove excess skin and fat around the neck and to smooth your profile.
