What are the Things to Expect After Getting Botox Injections?

Botox injections must only be administered by a certified cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Augusto Rojas is a certified cosmetic surgeon in Venice Beach who will ensure that the injections will be safe and effective. 


Cosmetic Surgeon in Venice Beach Injects Botox to Diminish Your Facial Wrinkles 

Facial wrinkles are signs of aging. It’s one reason many A-list stars in Hollywood would get Botox injections to eliminate the wrinkles on their faces. 

If they don’t do that, they will look older. And we all know that older stars don’t get many lucrative projects in Hollywood. Many film producers would opt to cast younger actors and actresses. 

Of course, you don’t need to be a Hollywood star to take advantage of this procedure. Botox is for everyone who wishes to bring back their youthful look. 

It’s the most important cosmetic procedure in the US. In 2016 alone, over 7 million people had Botox.

But what can you expect from the injections? 


How Long Will It Take? 

If you think that it will take hours to inject Botox, then you’re wrong. 

A typical treatment session can be finished in less than 20 minutes. However, it will depend on the areas to be treated. 

There’s no need to use numbing agents or anesthesia. The reason for this is that the needle is fine. 

Because Dr. Augusto Rojas is a well-experienced cosmetic surgeon who injected Botox into his patients several times a week. In that case, he can easily identify the exact points on your face where you need an injection. 

However, if you are nervous about the experience, he can apply a numbing agent. 


Is There a Recovery Period? 

Botox injection isn’t surgery. In that case, there’s no recovery time for this treatment. Then again, you will feel some soreness and see swelling around the treated sites. 

You must not rub or massage that area. If you do, Botox will migrate to other areas, rendering the injections useless. 

To remedy the pain, you may take an OTC painkiller or apply a cold compress. Some of our patients here at Venice Beach Surgical Center don’t take any painkillers. They said that the discomfort subsided a few hours after the treatment. 


Is It a Permanent Solution? 

Botox has never been a permanent solution to get rid of your facial wrinkles. The wrinkles will come back. However, it’s still an excellent way to soften wrinkles. It also slows down the formation of new wrinkles on your face. 

You can also choose to undergo other cosmetic procedures, like dermal fillers and facial rejuvenation surgery. 


What Other Cosmetic Procedures You Might Need? 

It depends on the results you desire. The only way to find out the exact procedures you can safely undergo is to consult with our cosmetic surgeon. 

You need an initial consultation so Dr. Rojas can assess your medical condition if you have any. Keep in mind that not all people can undergo cosmetic procedures.
