I had been told that for the best botox San Jose was the place to go and I must be honest, it is not really the botox that you go for. The botox itself could be the same no matter where you buy it, be it Seattle or Atlanta, what you go for is the service. This is why San Jose has really gained a name for itself because it has some of the very finest clinics where you can go and have botox administered, and they offer some of the finest service.
Given that this was my very first time having this procedure, I wanted the best, and that is why I decided to head to SJ. To those of you who are considering having botox or who are looking into it for the first time, here is what to expect.
Botox takes the form of an injection and the product will be directly injected into the space where you feel that you need it most. For example personally I had injections into my forehead and into the corners of my eyes, to combat wrinkles and those pesky crow’s feet. Before you have these injections however you will have a chat with the clinician, surgeon or beauty therapist who will be administering these injections, and they will discuss the process with you. What they will also discuss with you is how much botox is the right amount for you. The aim of the game here is to come out looking natural, and not like someone who has had any work done.
A quick tips here is to always ensure that you have checked the botox bottle before the seal is broken, to ensure that you are receiving a product which is in date. Assuming that it is in date then you will tilt your head back and have small shots of botox administered to the places that need it. The needles going into the skin feel like a small prick and nothing more, when the botox is injected you will feel nothing more than a warmth and then it is over with. Each injection takes less than a second.
Once you have had the injections you will be instructed to make a variety of facial expressions and what that will do is to help the botox even itself out, so that you don’t end up with any lumps in the face… this is super rare.
I noticed a visible reduction in my wrinkles after about 7 days and by the 10 day mark the full effects could be seen. I have a very good daily skincare routine and the overall effects lasted strongly for 4 months, and I would say that at the 6 month mark everything was back to normal.
My overall thoughts on this is that it is a treatment which I will be doing again, I really loved the effects and the procedure itself was super simple.
