You can and should wash your face after Botox.

Just don't wash your face aggressively but do continue to wash your face and around the injection site as well to avoid infection.

Your face does feel weird after Botox and for awhile you won't be able to move some face muscles like before and you may feel a tingling feeling as well.

These feelings typically go away within a day or so after the Botox Injection.

Botox does wear off and stop working after 3 to 4 months.

So to keep Botox working you need to have a Botox Injection every 3 to 4 months or the Botox wears off.

You cannot inject your own Botox as the Botox Injection is actually only available to doctors and professionals and not for people at home.

Mini Botox is Botox that is meant to give your face and skin a more natural look than regular Botox.

Mini Botox is also known as Baby Botox.

Mini Botox works the same way as traditional Botox, however difference is that Mini Botox aims to achieve a more natural-looking result.

Botox is made from botulinum toxin type A. Botulinum blocks the nerve signals that tell your muscles to contract.

Botox is injected where it's needed which is usually in the forehead and the outer eye area as well.

Botox injections are commonly injected into three main sites which are the forehead lines, crow's feet lines around the eyes and the vertical '11' frown lines between the eyebrows.

Botox is worth the money if you can afford it as the Botox treatments help to prevent wrinkles and help you look younger.

Botox is one of the easiest ways to reduce wrinkles and make you look younger and a lot of celebrities and actresses use Botox to make them look better on TV.

Botox has both short-term and long-term benefits.

Botox not only reduce wrinkles and stops ageing but Botox also offers medical benefits.

And on a short-term basis, Botox can immediately improve the appearance of your lines.

Botox costs between $200.00 to $300.00 depending on how many units of Botox you need for your treatment.

You may need between 30 to 40 units of Botox which can cost between $300.00 to $600.00

Forehead Botox costs around $200.00 to $300.00 per treatment.

You will typically need around 20 units of Botox for your forehead and the Botox units cost around $10.00 to $15.00 per unit.

Botox is not permanent and requires repeat Botox Injections to maintain the results you desire from Botox as it eventually wears off.

Botox wears off within 3 to 4 months and so you need to have a Botox Injection every 3 to 4 months to prevent the Botox from wearing off.

Repeated Botox treatments are necessary for continued wrinkle-reducing effects.

Most people find that the muscle-relaxing effect of Botox lasts for 3 to 4 months.

In cosmetic procedures, Botox injections are used to smooth frown lines and prevent signs of aging by paralyzing or weakening the muscles which cause wrinkles in the skin.

Botox results can last up to six months and need to be repeated over time to maintain its results.

If you happen to stop Botox treatments after many years of regular injections, the only effect will be that your wrinkles will return, albeit a bit more slowly than if you had not been using Botox.

Even after you stop getting Botox Injections, you will still look younger than you would have if you had never been injected.

From a medical point of view, once the effects of Botox wear off, your face will NOT look older.

Actually the opposite happens with certainty.

Botox injections help you get rid of some of the unwanted wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, chin etc.

You may think that the cost of Botox is not worth it.

However, Botox has both short-term and long-term benefits.

Botox doesn't only reduce wrinkles and stop ageing but also offer medical benefits.

On a short-term basis, Botox can immediately improve the appearance of your lines.
