Illuminate Guide to Botox Blog

How do I know if I need Botox?
There isn't anybody that should need Botox and certainly shouldn't feel any pressure to have the procedure. If you make facial expressions that consistently causes wrinkles, you frown a lot or your nose wrinkles, Botox can help this from happening. Fine lines and wrinkles are a big ageing concern to most.

Why do people in their 20s/30s have Botox?
Younger people will have Botox as a preventative measure. Getting Botox can also train you out of the scrunching habits so even when the Botox wears off, you are still less likely to frown.

How often do you need to have Botox?
Every 3-4months.

How long does the process take?
15 minutes total. The Botox can take a 7-10 days to develop.

Will I get bruises?
If you do, the bruising will be light and barely noticeable.

Will people notice that I look different after I get Botox? Do I have to tell my friends?
No and no. You won't look conspicuously different; you'll just look fresher and better. The only exception is if you go overboard.
