What are the risks of Botox?
Risks are uncommon with Botox treatments, however, some patients do experience the following symptoms: discomfort, swelling, bruising, redness, headache, droopy eyelid, crooked smile, excessive tearing, or eye dryness.
Mitigating these risks greatly is possible by only ever allowing a highly trained and very experienced injector to do your Botox treatments. Millions of people around the world receive Botox injections often and benefit from them greatly.
How to prepare for Botox?
You don’t have to do much to prepare for your Botox injections. During your consultation, one of our expert aesthetician injectors will examine your skin and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine if you’re a suitable candidate. Generally speaking, you shouldn’t consume alcohol for 24 hours before the procedure because alcohol is a blood thinner that increases your risk of bruising. You should also avoid nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for 2 weeks before treatments.
What happens during the Botox procedure?
The Botox procedure concludes within a few minutes, depending on the number of injections necessary. Your injector will create a treatment map that marks out all the injections spots to meet your aesthetic goals. Next, she will deliver highly-calibrated Botox injections into the strategically-targeted neuromuscular tissues.
