First Time Botox Tips

As you get older you might start looking into treatments to make you look more refreshed. Botox is a great option to explore. Its been used for decades to treat wrinkles and facial creases. However, Botox can be intimidating if you aren’t educated on the topic. There are a plethora of tips to take note of before your first appointment.

Firstly, make sure you are seeing a board-certified physician. It’s important to look at the work they post on their website to see if you like their before and after results. Also, when it comes to Botox its recommended to start off slow with the treatments instead of doing too much at once. It’s important to aim for a natural result. If you do too much at once you could stray away from the natural look. Start off slow, you can always add more. You can fix bad Botox if it involves more Botox, but you can’t fix bad Botox by removing it. It takes a couple months for the effects of Botox to wear off if you have a bad experience. Furthermore, although preventative Botox is controversial, it’s a topic worth exploring. Especially as you get older.

There are several areas of the face that physicians recommend being cautious with when wanting to get Botox. Firstly, the area around your eyes are a tricky place to have Botox injected. There is a lot of room for error and it doesn’t tend to look natural. Furthermore, be careful when it comes to getting Botox around smile lines. Filler is a better alternative since it won’t paralyze your muscles. One’s face should be able to smile.

Lastly, if you are pregnant or breast feeding do not get Botox. One should also avoid drinking alcohol, sleeping on treated areas, and the sun since it can exasperate the temporary negative side effects one experiences after getting Botox treatment. Also, if you are taking fish oil, stop taking it a week or two prior to getting Botox treatment since it promotes bruising. Although bruising is a common harmless side effect of getting Botox, its best not to have too much bruising since it can make one feel self-conscious.
