After careful research and a lot of thinking, you have decided it is finally time to try Botox Cosmetic. The wonder injections can erase fine lines and deep facial creases to restore a younger, more refreshed appearance. As long as you remember the do’s and don’ts of Botox treatments, you will almost certainly be pleased with this choice for noninvasive facial rejuvenation.
Do see an experienced, reputable Botox provider:
Everyone offers Botox these days, from the gynecologist to the dentist. However, you should only trust your appearance to a reputable, Board Certified cosmetic surgeon or injection nurse. This ensures safe, effective results without the risk of a frozen, artificial appearance.
Don’t take aspirin before your Botox injections:
Taking aspirin is not a deal breaker for Botox Cosmetic, like it could be with an invasive procedure. However, it is not recommended, as aspirin thins the blood. This medication, along with supplements like St. John’s Wart and fish oil, substantially increase your chances of bruising after Botox injections.
Don’t fret over the pain of Botox injections:
Yes, Botox Cosmetic is applied with a needle – right between the brows or at the corner of the eyes. This needle is tiny, however, making the injections almost painless. There may be a pinch as the Botox is applied, but this will be over in only a few seconds.
Do plan on getting right back to your normal routine:
Botox injections take less than 30 minutes, which is why scheduling a treatment during a lunch break works well. Although there may be minor redness or swelling at the injection site, these should quickly resolve. Most patients can go back to their normal activities, like work or school, immediately after their Botox injections.
Don’t rub the treatment area for at least six hours after your injections:
Vigorously rubbing the injection site too soon after treatment can potentially cause the Botox to migrate to surrounding tissues. This can create problems such as a drooping eyelid or asymmetric results. Refrain from rubbing the treatment area for at least six hours, allowing the Botox to settle into place.
Do plan on your Botox several weeks before a special event:
Botox Cosmetic does not provide immediate results. Initial results will take between five and seen days to appear. Full benefits of a Botox treatment can take up to two weeks. So if you are having the treatment for a special occasion, be sure to plan ahead.
