Botox injections – Pros and Cons

Feb 08, 2013 No Comments by

Are you planning to do a Botox injection in order to look younger? Well, these kinds of injection certainly seems to be the new thing. It’s a lot easier than plastic surgery, and cheaper as well, but is it healthy? I’ve listed a few pros and cons to make it easier for you to decide whether or not to let yourself get injected with Botox.




  • It makes you look younger by finding the muscles which makes the face contract. It means you’ll be able to smooth existing wrinkles out, so the chance to look more youthful and to get a more smooth skin is big.
  • It doesn’t last forever, so in case you’re not satisfied with the result you’ll just have to wait for a few months and then you’ll be back looking like your old self again.
  • No long waiting list, as you might experience when waiting for plastic surgery. There are plenty of authorized salons to visit if you’d like to get a Botox injection.
  • FDA-approved, which means you can be certain it’s a quite safe kind of treatment.
  • Cheaper than plastic surgery. One treatment usually costs around $500, more or less…




  • The effect doesn’t last forever. This might be a pro in some cases, but if you’re happy with the result you’d probably want it to last. It doesn’t however. You’ll have to make a new appointment for a new treatment after a few months.
  • You might lose the opportunity to make some facial expressions, which can make you look a bit unnatural.
  • Small mistakes can result in huge consequenses. A Botox injection in the mouth area could leave you drooling for a very long time in case something goes wrong.


As you can see there are several pros as well as cons. You’ll have to read them through, do some thinking and then decide whether it’s worth it or not. It’s a fairly safe treatment method, however, there are side effects involved as well, which has to be taken into consideration.

I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics.
