BOTOX® is a great alternative to surgery for enhancing the natural beauty of your face. You can reduce the appearance of creases, wrinkles, and lines on your face with just a single treatment. The great things about BOTOX® are the long-lasting results, the short recovery time and you can start enjoying the results quickly! To help you prepare for your first treatment, there are some important things you should keep in mind
Know Your Restrictions
To ensure you get the best results from your procedure, you should limit or avoid the consumption of certain things before your appointments.
Have the Right Expectations
During your initial BOTOX® consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan to address your expectations and discuss the results that are realistic. Following your treatment, your skin may not show signs of change immediately; however, you shouldn’t feel discouraged. It can take days to a week to see a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.
Understand the Procedure
Due to the nature of BOTOX®, you can expect a quick, convenient treatment that is performed in the comfort of our office. Rest assured, you will be kept as comfortable as possible.
Don’t Obsess About the Side Effects
There are sometimes very minimal side effects of BOTOX® injections; however, it’s only natural to expect some slight skin redness in the areas that received the injections. These issues will resolve on their own shortly after treatment and certainly shouldn’t scare you away from getting the injections.
Follow Post-Treatment Guidelines
For example, you’ll want to avoid touching the treatment area. You’ll also want to stay out of tanning beds and the sun.
