Before getting Botox injections, there are several important considerations and preparations to ensure a safe and effective treatment. Here are some dos before Botox:
Research And Choose a Qualified Provider
Research and select a licensed and experienced healthcare professional or medical spa with expertise in administering Botox.
Medical History Disclosure
Be transparent with your practitioner - For your safety, tell your Botox practitioner as much about your medical history as possible so he/she can determine whether you are a good candidate to receive cosmetic Botox. Tell your doctor: What medication you are taking, what allergies you have, If you have any medical conditions, illnesses, or diseases, and anything else you can think of.
Avoid Anti-Inflammatory Medication
Just like wine, you are also discouraged from ingesting any form of anti-inflammatory medication at least seven days before your Botox appointment. Most anti-inflammatory medications also have higher chances of causing bruising and discoloration following the treatment, and this may interfere with the ultimate results of the procedure.
Stop Taking Medication That Can Thin The Blood
A week before you get Botox injections, stop taking: Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Exedrin, St. John's Wart, Vitamin E, Fish oil or Omega-3s, Ginko Bilboa, and Ginseng. This will minimize any potential post-Botox bruising. If you have to take pain medication, Tylenol is okay. Also, avoid drinking alcohol a few days before you get Botox.
Alcohol And Caffeine Intake
Doctors often advise that patients should avoid eating or drinking anything 12 to 24 hours before a surgical procedure. While Botox doesn’t require you to stay away from food, avoiding alcohol and caffeine before Botox is highly recommended. The main reason for alcohol may increase the risk of bruising and bleeding. And caffeine may trigger your blood pressure and increase the likelihood of bruising during the procedure. For this reason, you should avoid coffee and other beverages containing caffeine at least 24 hours before the treatment.
Stay well-hydrated in the days before the procedure, as proper hydration can support skin health and recovery.
Take Before Photos
Your practitioner may take before photos to document your baseline appearance and track progress after the treatment.
Be On The Same Page As Your Practitioner
Make sure both you and your physician are clear about what facial areas you want to treat, how you ideally want them to be fixed, and what the ideal final result may be. Different people have different aesthetics. For instance, if the "frozen face" look is your practitioner's definition of successful Botox but you disagree, you better make sure both of you are aiming for the same target or you'll end up with a result your practitioner thinks is beautiful but you think is horrific.
Have Realistic Expectations About What Botox Can Do
Botox results can be drastically good, but your post-Botox results may not be as perfect as you expect them to be. Having realistic expectations about your results will save you from unnecessary disappointment.
Don't Be Afraid To Ask Questions.
Make a list of questions you want to ask your physician and bring it with you to your Botox consultation. That way you won't forget what you want to ask. Ask how much the treatment will cost, how many units of Botox you will need, how long the he/she has been giving Botox injections, etc. Ask about side effects, risks, and how you should take care of your skin after Botox and how often someone with your skin condition should get Botox.
