Why Botox Has Such a High Satisfaction Rate (94% Real Self)

Houston Women’s Cosmetic center, Botox

To say that most people who get Botox® to reduce their laugh lines or wrinkles are satisfied with their results is a bit of an understatement. In fact, on Real Self, where people share their experiences with various cosmetic treatments, Botox has a 94% satisfaction rate. How can a cosmetic procedure draw such widespread rave reviews?

With an increase in understanding of Botox over the years and skilled practitioners such as Dr. Adesomo at Houston Women’s Cosmetics applying the treatment, more and more people are experiencing these results for themselves. Here are some of the reasons you might love Botox, too.

Botox is often considered a ‘lunchtime treatment’

One thing most patients enjoy about Botox is how little time your appointment takes. People often describe it as a “lunchtime treatment” because Botox requires little preparation beyond cleaning your face, so it can be applied during a short session, such as over your lunch hour from work.

Because there’s no downtime afterward, you can book a Botox treatment with Dr. Adesomo in the morning or over your lunch hour and go to work or run errands during the afternoon with no interruption. While you may have minor swelling after the injections, it’s rarely obvious that you’ve had a Botox session.

Botox results look natural

The results of Botox vary based on your amount of wrinkles, the outcome you’re expecting, and the skill of your doctor. With modern Botox, natural-looking results are more popular than the completely smooth, frozen appearance of early Botox treatments.

Dr. Adesomo can help you decide on a specific look and achieve it with skilled placement of appropriate amounts of Botox. This can allow you to maintain natural movement while achieving a youthful appearance.

Botox is long-lasting

Botox is not a permanent solution to wrinkle reduction, but then, there aren’t any permanent solutions. As your skin ages, any changes you make will eventually fade. With Botox, it’s possible to anticipate when the results of your treatment will fade and, if you want, get a follow-up treatment to enjoy continued results.

Many people who enjoy the results of their Botox treatment get follow-up treatments 4-6 months later. A few quick treatments each year don’t put much stress on your schedule. Additionally, follow-up treatments often require less Botox and are even faster than those already-quick initial appointments.

However, if you decide to stop using Botox, your wrinkles won’t likely be any worse than they were when you started treatment. Perhaps more importantly, if you’re unhappy with your results for any reason, they’ll wear off in a few months, allowing you to try a different approach.

Botox may help with depression

One reason some people might be happy with their Botox treatment is that they literally can’t help themselves. Recently, Botox has been connected to reduced depression in some patients.

There are several reasons why this may be true.

Some researchers believe that limiting a person’s ability to frown also limits chronic negative emotions. Others believe there is positive social feedback from others that makes patients feel better about themselves. Whatever the reason, if your stress and depression are reduced thanks to a simple cosmetic procedure, you’ll likely be satisfied with your results.

Whether you’re curious about how Botox can help you, or you’re ready to try your first treatment, you should make sure you work with an experienced doctor who can help you decide on an effective course of Botox treatment.


Dr. Adesomo can assess your wrinkles as well as your aesthetic goals and help you decide whether you’ll be happy with the results of a Botox treatment. Contact the Houston Women’s Cosmetic center or schedule an appointment online for a friendly, honest consultation.
