Dr Singh who runs his botox clinic in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, in his latest blog shares his thoughts on what to do before, during and after botox treatments.
What to do before a Botox® treatment
For you to have a positive experience with your Botox® treatment below are a few steps to follow before the treatment takes place:
Select a doctor who knows what they are doing. The doctor is board-certified and has several years of experience. Good Botox® is all dependent on the skill and technique of the Botox® Injector.
Be open and transparent with the doctor. When filling in the medical form, write and tell your doctor your medical history in detail, your current illnesses, the medication you are currently taking (even supplements), whether you are pregnant, breast-feeding or trying to conceive so the doctor can determine if you are suitable for Botox® treatment.
Make sure Botox® is the correct treatment for you. A reputable and experienced doctor will know what Botox® treatment will work for your skin and which Botox® treatment will not. For example, you may benefit from fillers for certain types of wrinkles.
Do not be afraid to ask as many questions to you wish. Go in with a list.
What to do during your Botox® treatment
What you need to do during the Botox® treatment is not as important as what you do before and after your Botox® injection. However, there are a few things to keep in mind for a good treatment:
Go au naturel if you choose. Your skin will be cleaned with either rubbing alcohol or an antiseptic before the Botox® injection. So turning up without any make-up on is fine.
Stay still and follow the doctor’s instructions. If you are afraid or nervous please make your doctor aware and set your mind on something random or relaxing.
Use an ice pack before, during and after Botox® treatment can help reduce and signs of bruising.
What to do after your Botox® treatment
What you do after your treatment and how to care for your skin is paramount. Below are some suggestions to do or avoid after a Botox® treatment.
Do not touch, rub or massage the injected part of your skin for 24 hours. You do not want the Botox® to spread to other unintended muscles.
Avoid strenuous physical activity and avoid consuming large amounts of alcohol.
Do not book yourself for a facial, chemical peel to microdermabrasion for at least 24 hours.
If you do get a small Botox® bruise, you can use topical K and arnica to help you.
Go back for top ups if you need to or if you are not satisfied with your results.
If you experience any side effects or complications please call the Doctor or seek medical attention.
Following the above will help you get the best out of the treatment and better results.
