5 Things You Should Know Before Getting Botox

posted by

If you’re a little nervous about your first Botox appointment, don’t worry.

Many have been in your place. And each time, we’ve offered them advice and information that enables them to make the best possible decisions.

Important Factors about Botox

1. Know where you’re getting Your Injectable From

Always go for quality when choosing injectables, not a bargain. Make sure that the doctor you’ve chosen is an official vendor of that particular injectable and always be wary if someone offers any special deals or discounts. Typically, a doctor will base their fee on the number of Botox units used, so keep that in mind when searching for a good clinic for Botox treatment.

2. Know What to Stay Away From

Usually, doctors will tell you to stay away from anticoagulants such as ibuprofen and aspirin before your appointment— but these aren’t the only two things that may cause blood thinning.

According to experts, several pantry items such as multivitamins, green tea, cinnamon, red wine, ginger and even fish oil can cause your blood vessels to become fragile. Do your research and prepare at least two weeks before your appointment to avoid bruising.

3. Bruises Won’t Stay Forever

In case an injection hits a vessel and causes blood pooling, you get an unappealing blue and black splotch. But rest assured; it will not stay that way forever. Bruises don’t take too long to diminish. If you’re worried about how a bruise may look, talk to your doctor and ask them for advice on how to make the bruise go away later.

4. Understand Different Types of Fillers

Reflection Medical Spa offers three different types of fillers. While Juvederm and Radiesse are stimulatory fillers, Botox is an on-surface filler that’s most beneficial. Ask your consultant about the different options and whether how Botox will help you maintain your skin in the long run.

5. Consultations are Crucial

An experienced professional will not just offer Botox because you want it. First, they’ll test your muscular movement before giving their verdict on whether you need Botox at all. Once they’ve determined your health condition and the amount of Botox you need, they will then advise you on the best possible time for the procedure.
