Despite the fact that Botox has been on the market for over 12 years and is used by millions of men and women yearly, many more women have a lot of questions. A new study from SheSpeaks, an online community for women, and Allergan, Inc., the maker of Botox Cosmetic, reveals the top questions of 2,200 women who are interested in Botox Cosmetic.
It comes as no surprise that 54% of the women studied wanted to learn about cost, making “How much is Botox?” the most popular question. It’s important for consumers to understand that the cost for Botox doesn’t just include the actual product but most importantly, the skill of the injector. Successful outcomes with Botox Cosmetic is largerly dependent on the level of training and experience of the treating injector.
The second most popular question regarding Botox Cosmetic is about the safety of the product (36% of women). Botox has years of clinical studies have shown little risks and side effects associated with the product, when used properly by a trained injector with the proper credentials.
Additionally, women are concerned that there face will not look natural following Botox injections, largely due to the “botched” plastic surgery images we often see in the media. This again comes down to the injector and the level of training they have. It’s important to choose a licensed healthcare professional with knowledge of facial anatomy and years experience frequently treating patients with Botox Cosmetic. Dr. Thompson is known for his natural results with all injectables and is open and honest in telling patients what point is too much. Because Botox Cosmetic works so well, patients often have a ‘more is better’ mentality when doing just that can often cause more harm than good. No one wants to look like they’ve had ‘work done’. Dr. Thompson’s patients trust that he has their best interest at heart and will provide the best results possible, and not just offer the amount of Botox that will generate the highest revenue.
To address these popular questions and more, Botox Cosmetic has launched a newly designed website with a before and after gallery of women and men who received treatments, further information on questions about Botox, and a feature for easy enrollment in their Brilliant Distinctions program.
Their is also a new visualizer app that lets you take a photo of your vertical frown lines – or a video of your crow’s feet lines – and visualize how those areas will look following a Botox Cosmetic treatment.
