How to prepare.
#1 – Avoid any blood thinning medications or substances, including alcohol.
#2 – Communicate to your provider if needles make you anxious or if you have had allergic reactions in the past.
#3 – Come to your appointment without makeup if possible.
Things to consider
#1 – 53% of patients experience pain and some bruising. It’s a needle piercing the skin, therefore bruising is inherent in the process.
#2 – About 20% of patients will not achieve the results they are looking for. This has been shown in extensive evidence submitted to the FDA.
#3 – Any form of heat will break down your Botox. Avoid lasers and excessive heat to the treated areas for 2 weeks.
#4 – 30 days after your initial treatment, your Botox Cosmetic will start to wear off slowly. By day 90, most of the treatment will have worn off.
