7. Botox Won't Get Rid of Every Wrinkle — and That's OK
My mom was 54 when she went in for her first round of Botox, so she already had a few deep-set wrinkles that tend to be harder to treat. And because most derms aim to make you look as natural as possible, they'll never inject you with too much juice (and you don't want them to — trust), which means you'll have fewer lines, but they won't completely vanish.
8. It's Not Cheap
Much like a real estate agent might tell you, the price of Botox is all about location, location, location. In general, you are either charged by unit (i.e., how much of the actual Botox fluid you require) or by the specific area being treated, which varies depending on where you live. Each unit can set you back anywhere from $10 to $20, which the American Society For Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports averages around $376 per session.
9. It Requires Zero Downtime
It's called a "lunchtime treatment" for a reason — the entire thing takes 10 to 15 minutes, tops. Even with the minimal redness at the injection sight (you have your concealer, right?), nobody will suspect a thing.
